What an incredible, professional, charismatic and inspiring presenter – Women in Business

Petris was a conference highlight – National Congress

Oh what a presenter, what a person – no wonder we love her so much – State Congress

Exceptional presenter – valuable tool – I love each time Petris presents – State Conference

You are singularly the most inspiring person I have ever met. Your passion and compassion is a joy to behold.

Brilliant as always – perfect opening session – Simple, concise, funny & informative – State Conference

The best aspect of the Symposium – State Law Symposium

We are so grateful! You are such a positive influence on people and have a wonderful ability to make everyone feel special.

Petris was a highlight of the conference – Hamilton Island

Your talk was powerful, meaningful, thought provoking and very motivational.

Powerful, relevant with personal insights which made it all the more entertaining.

Thank you for a wonderful presentation … Your talk was a special blend of humour and vulnerability, and you did a beautiful job.

Many thanks for your wonderful presentations over the past two days! I have received wonderful feedback from our delegates!

I felt compelled to let you know how much of a difference you have made to the way I view my own self and those around me. Your presentation was a ‘Light Bulb’ moment for me. It REALLY WAS. You are singularly the most inspiring person I have ever met. Your passion and compassion is a joy to behold. Thank you so much.

You are one of the most genuine, positive, funny, enthusiastic – and knowledgeable – people it has been my pleasure to meet. Spending time in your company is like bathing in pure joy! Thank you for your insights that I have used on many occasions both professionally and with family and friends.”

Could I have a copy of your powerpoints to share with my family? They would definitely benefit from your inspirational presentation like I did! It was one of the best presentations I have been to and very relevant at all levels. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you so much for your raw/honest presentation… You touched on topics that the industry does not talk about enough. We have purchased your eBook and use your nonjudging mantra out loud quite a bit in the office. Thanks for making a difference.

You were brilliant! The presentations were very informative and enjoyable

You took 180 people on an amazing journey of self-discovery and reconnecting with the world around them. Petris, for a person to hop off a plane, walk into a room of 180 people, commence your presentation with confidence, vulnerability and passion, not to mention that within 5 minutes you had most people in the palm of your hand was amazing to watch. Thank you! I have undertaken a lot of public speaking .. been to numerous conference and listened to many people presenting, few people have engaged as you managed to do. Your presentation wasn’t all about facts and how to improve our lives from a theory perspective, but you gave of yourself, told your story with openness!

Your humour, passion, storytelling ability, insightfulness, clarity of presentation and the way you continually checked in re proceeding in a way that felt comfortable for all of us was greatly appreciated. There is enough pressure in our job & for it to be okay to ‘be there as we are’ & to honour that while still encouraging us to ‘move into a new space’ made it easy and non-threatening for everyone to join in in a relaxed manner.

Just wanted to send a heart warmed thanks for session last night. At the drinks afterwards, I spoke to most of the participants who shared the same feeling – when it’s broken down into simple steps, it doesn’t seem too onerous to achieve. Most this are things we know but just need those little strategies with how to actually make happen. One fellow said to me as he left – people don’t know what they missed not being here tonight. So thank you.

Ms Petris Lapis was amazing

Love it. Please do come back again. Want a longer session.

Things we must never forget. One of the best sessions of the conference.

Loved your presentation

You are definitely a ‘legend’ in all our eyes!

Best presentation of the conference! learned so much – wish it was a masterclass (a full day)! Thank you!!

Excellent – Great Take Aways

Great practical techniques to implement in difficult situations.

Excellent interaction. Practical tips for dealing with conflict.

During the course you helped us all remember lots of important things that we already knew, but which we all forget in the busyness of everyday life. Additionally you taught us lots of new and cool stuff. (I love the rocking back and forward thing for an answer.) Sometimes I’m convinced that the most powerful picture any of us can paint for someone else isn’t done with a canvas and brush but, simply, a mirror. You made a space where we could feel – safe enough to look – honest enough to see – wise enough to judge – gentle enough to forgive and brave enough to change. The ability to do that is a gift, beautiful. I trust you will keep using it for all humanity because, God knows, we need it.

This was an excellent seminar and presenter, well worthwhile topic, has definitely added value.

I really enjoyed your presentation.

The day was fantastic and Petris is amazing.

Keep up the extraordinary work you do for kids.

You have really made me feel a lot happier with myself. Those weeks I was with you was just amazing. I felt a sense of belonging and that was something I have never had before. Thank yo so so so much. I will miss you so much.

Petris, you have honestly changed my life. Before the program started I was that broken torn apart confused girl. To me I thought I went through a lot, you told us all your story and you gave me hope and inspiration…I want to become someone like you. Thank you so much for teaching me how to make my decisions, thank you for helping me build myself. Thank you for everything you’ve done, and thank you for coming to our school You’ve done so much good to us girls, and we’re all grateful. We love you Petris, so much. Hope to see you again soon!

Always worthwhile sessions with Petris.

Very necessary

Wonderful as always.

Excellent, informative, useful and entertaining all in one.

You are a wonderful mentor, an inspiration and a very respected colleague.

I can partly guess as to how much work has been put into the course and, as always, am astounded by your achievement in training to do such a presentation. You are a superb teacher.

Your commitment to and example set by you to the job and your example are empowering. I learnt much from your example.

I liked everything about the course, your energy, your knowledge and your commitment.

You are awesome, I hope you can have a positive effect on ALL of your clients for ever after- we need more people in the world like yourself! The music was beautiful; there was commitment, encouragement and support provided. I can now turn things that were once negative into positive things, thank you!!

I can’t really pinpoint any one thing I liked about the course because I liked it all! I believe it is all going to help me with letting go of the past and getting on with the future.

This course was empowering!

This is an excellent tool!

Anywhere, any time techniques.

Anything is possible if you really want it.

Fantastic workshop.

I just loved it!

Very ‘hands on’ and easy to follow.

Well done [Petris] – wonderful course.

I loved[Petris’s] energy; the presentation of the information was great. The course was well thought out, the activities were great and the mood was personal and warm. It was a wonderful weekend.

It was awesome! Everything was so inspiring. You are where you are to be inspiring to others! I would have loved to hear more of your colourful life stories; I found them to be real and inspiring. I’m sorry it had to come to an end; I appreciate what you have given me and am proud to have got to know you. Everyone who comes into contact with you will leave feeling more enriched. I will spread your wisdom to others and tell them they MUST SEE YOU IN PERSON! Thank you so much!

I have never thought about things in the way this course has taught me, the presentation was excellent and I was never bored. I love the ‘positive’ feelings in the room; and how it left me feeling. You are the best. Your positive energy is obvious to all of us. [Petris], your commitment to help others is evident and contagious- an inspiration. This is just what I needed at this point in my life. Thank you!

I loved everything about the course! The releasing of all the negativity, the harnessing of positivism, the influence you can have on your own life and all the meditation, the expanded awareness particularly. So much inspiration!

I loved how practical the course and its tools were for everyday life, not mumbo jumbo. Easy to implement and time friendly.

Well designed course. Great presentation. Very practical information/exercises.

I will use the memory strategies in my every day life.

This course was refreshing.

Very practical and hands on. Easy to follow.

Day 2 was AMAZING!!

It was well constructed to help me discover things about myself, while not making me feel uncomfortable.

[Petris] is an amazing and inspirational woman and an excellent and professional presenter.

I feel as if I’m walking away from the course with a bag full of tools to get what I want from life.

The course was an enlightening experience.

It was my first time – the meditation worked – impressed!

Being positive, uplifting

All the little stories

Learning about myself and others

Everything! Things come into your life what you need it the most – and I don’t think it is a coincidence that this course happened this weekend… I really needed it. Thank you for the enthusiasm in which the course was run

Good support/explanations

Memory skills, setting goals and working out values, knowing that these skills are possible. I just have to find the way to fully unlock them. I learned how to enter the first stages of relaxation that is a big step for me!

Well presented, easy to follow. It challenged the way I thought about so many things and gave me some tools to reassess my opinion, feelings and approach in the future

Broadening of my mind, beliefs, lessening of my doubts and abilities. [Petris’s] humour amongst much wisdom taught. Really impressed with the energy work

A well balanced course with the right degree of light heartedness and what laughter is – the best medicine. Good venue with the right number of participants allowed good interaction

Everything! I found your course extremely empowering, informative and life challenging! You are truly a delightful human being Petris. Spending the last two days here has felt like a health retreat for the mind. I feel blissfully and deliciously relaxed and at peace with my inner self

Everything

Incredible yet simple activities that beautifully illustrated every point. Everyone seemed motivated to participate. Timing was spot on. Sandra you are a superb infectious presenter. Thank you

Made me look at my usual attitudes and the way to change those that needed to be changed. Met a lot of interesting and lovely people. Overall has given me a tremendous amount to think about and try to remember!

Very relaxed environment. Very affirming. Encouraging new ideas and techniques will now empower me with living life to the fullest and more confidently. Thank you for sharing and making it look so simple and easy. It’s been one of the best weekends spent for ages. Cheers!

The relaxed manner in which the course was presented. I was so easy to get to know the other people on the course. [Petris’s] manner enabled everyone to open up easily. The content of the course was incredible – so much packed into the weekend. The course booklet will enable me to go over it all and refresh it in my mind again.

The massage, the fun activities, the great food, great memory activities, the lollies, the friendly people, the laughs, the lion king soundtrack, meeting new people. The fact of leaving and feeling like a new happy person and wait to start my life again.

Can’t wait to think through what I’ve learnt about myself this weekend. There’s so much I’ve not known (or acknowledged anyway).

This weekend has resurrected some things I had put to the side and you have taught me new skills as well. An inspiration – thank you.

I am sorry to leave a room of such beautiful positive peaceful people. It has been truly inspirational and everyone has been so friendly! Thank you for providing my baby brother with so many ways to improve his life. We love you!

Really like the ‘life stories’ used as examples throughout the course. Thanks for teaching me techniques that I can use to be a better person, wife, mother, friend and work colleague.

[Petris] would be the best person to get to know.

Positive. [Petris] has a warm presence and soothing hands (the neck massage was fantastic!). Empowering. Jokes. Food – great venue.

[Petris] you are very easy to listen to.

The presenter was very professional – Great sense of humour.

Terrific presenter. Reinforce what I have learned in the past. Makes me keen to reintroduce. Lively. Essential skills for life’s fulfilment.

[Petris] was a wonderful, charismatic presenter. She had an amazing ability to keep me interest for the whole course. I feel more relaxed and calm than I have in a long time. I loved the memory skills.

[Petris] you are wonderful. Great content, great pace, good size group, good venue. Uplifting and energising.

[Petris] is a great woman.

If everyone in the world was like [Petris] what a beautiful place it would be.

[Petris] is a wonderful, caring role-model.
