Testimonials

One of the more interesting parts of what I do is the constant feedback I receive on everything from what I wear, to how I smile, to what I say. Here is a small selection of the feedback and testimonials I have received from conferences, corporate workshops, schools and retreats. Much of it is anonymous due to the way it is collected. Any feedback from students has deliberately been left anonymous out of respect for their privacy.

Great. Wow – So So Good. BEST SPEAKER I have seen in 14 years.

Law Conference

The feedback on your presentation was REALLY REALLY positive.

What an incredible, professional, charismatic and inspiring presenter

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

Petris was a highlight of the conference

Hamilton Island

   You took 180 people on an amazing journey of self-discovery and reconnecting… Petris, for a person to hope 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 conferences 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!

Financial Counsellors Conference

Just wanted to send a heart warmed thanks for the 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 to onerous to achieve.

Most of 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.

Legal Conference

Just wanted to say a big thank you for speaking at our IWD event last night. The feedback from staff and clients alike is glowing – I am positive everyone came away from the event feeling way more in tune with their well-being and feeling less like the one-legged duck spinning around in a circle!!

International Women's Day Event

We were so lucky to have you with us on Monday. I’ve heard so many people referring to things they heard in your workshops since then – you really made an impact on the people who heard you …  Thank you for allowing us to share your presentations, although it was the ‘realness’ of your delivery that made them so memorable

State School Staff Workshop

Thanks so much for your presentation this morning. The content was perfect as was your manner with our staff. I’ve received many positive comments today regarding your presentation and I’m hoping that we can continue to work with you during the year.

Both of your talks were engaging, interesting, memorable, with great prattical aspects as well, and we thoroughly enjoyed them!

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 non judging mantra out loud quite a bit in the office. Thanks for making a difference.

Never has someone stood in front of me and grasped my attention from the moment you entered the room. Then you spoke. then I sensed something else that made me take note. I still can’t put my finger on that. My heart says the spiritual side of you shines so bright, my head says your academia is beyond anything I have seen in the world of ‘2 sec social media rubbish’… It was an absolute honour to hear you speak. I have heard every twist, every concept, lectures on mindfulness, business sense, networking and building the self into a powerhouse of focused fury, time management etc etc and with the aim to achieve … Never has a presenter struck me so fast, so hard on a personal level. Usually I blank out after hearing an introduction and shade my rolled eyes from the same dribble. Fear of ‘lessons’ from yet another ‘corporate speaker’. I am glad to have met you. You have awoken a great demon in me. A thirst for adventure, excitement and konwledge of the self.

Audio Visual Technician At Legal Conference

Petris was brilliant. she gave us practical insights into how to facilitate creative thinking in our own business/workplaces. Very transferable. Thank you!

International Women In Business Conference

Thank you for your presentation on 24 September at Education House … It was incredibly relevant and the way you delivered the information made it so easy to understand … I have been going over and over the messages in my head – that was truly one of the best afternoons I have spent. Definitely one that has taken effect immediately.

Absolutely brilliant presentation. One of the best of the day. Engaging, fun, relevant, practical tips. Delivered so professionally with human touch! Absolutely in awe and learnt some good tips. Thank you

Excellent way to end the day – she was fabulous and a fabulous topic – soft skills are the only thing that will separate us from the robots when they take over the world through AI

Her natural enthusiasm ensured I stayed riveted. She had the right amount of technical content and practical examples. Please invite her back!

I particularly appreciated and enjoyed the presentation from Petris Lapis because of her obvious knowledge and passion about the topic, as well as her presentation skills

The final presentation by Petris Lapis was the most insightful and most broadly adaptable to many industries. She kept me totally engaged throughout her entire presentation.

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

Impressive

Excellent – Thanks!

Good hands on presentation

Very insightful

Everyone who comes into contact withyou 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 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.

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.

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.

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

Thank you so very much for today. It was everything I hoped for and there has been an abundance of positive feedback from staff.

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

I really enjoyed your presentation, and as apsychologist I thought your delivery of the concepts was fantastic

Enjoyable and insightful

Engaging and relatable

Loved your presentation

Petris was gold

Petris is incredible

Most enjoyable session!!!

Petris was very engaging. I really loved the way she presented the concepts and material in a matter of fact and practical way. It makes it more credible and practical to practice in this profession.

Both of your talks were engaging, interesting, memorable, with great practical aspects as well, and we thoroughly enjoyed them!

Thank you for your very honest and down to earth presentation on Wednesday. I think it is exactly what we all needed.

Thanks Petris, it was a pleasure having you at the conference this year and your content and presentation was superb.

Want to say a huge thank you for your amazing job yesterday as our MC. You exceeded our expectations and really contributed to the overall success of the event.

This was well-timed, well prepared + well presented session. Petris has all of the educational and emotional credentials to speak with authority to a bunch of sceptics!

It’s been great working with you again this year. I absolutely loved your presentation and I really did get a lot out o fit. From the evaluation results, looks like the delegates did too.

I loved Petris’ sessions. They were entertaining, interesting and informative. I would love to do more sessions with her.

Everyone was so happy with your presentations. You have definitely got everyone thinking about ways that they can make changes going forward.

Thank you for your time this morning. I found your workshop really insightful, and definitely plan to put some of your thoughts into practice!

I attended your presentation at the QLS last week. I can not thank you enough – I have a new perspective on life and feel so much happier.

Everyone had good things to say and took a lot out of it. They appreciated the evidence focussed approach.

The course was fantastic. It was exceptionally relevant to my every day work and was a timely reminder about the way in which I complete tasks on a day to day basis. It also prompted reflection on how I have developed and why there may have been a lack of development.

Thank you for your excellent presentation last night. It was such an engaging and relevant session. I WILL be making adjustments to my life to impement mindfulness and the tools you spoke about. I have your very helpful cards forefront of mind on my desk as a ready reminder.

I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. [They were] an inspiration. Not only did the presentations provide me with new things (work and personal), entertained me and made me laugh. But you have touched my life.

Petris Lapis is a bloody legend and a must have at the conference. She is the ideal tonic for providing ideas for breaking down rigidity in business. I have found in my career to date very few professionals that are able to effectively communicate on a topic like this

I wanted to thank you for the effort and care you put into helping me on my journey. It is difficult to find the words to do the gratitude justice. I feel at peace whilest also feeling incredibly empowered. As terribly cliche as it sounds … it really does feel like the start of the rest of my life. Thank you for helping me to open the door x

We have had amazing feedback on the workshop. Attendees have said that they were engaged throughout, learnt new skills and could apply this to daily life and work. Many said you were the best presenter we have ever had! Across the firm the comments have been incredibly positive and people keep praising the session – so many thanks and well done!

Petris is a fantastic presenter, she always manages to make me see the world differently (in a good way!)

Thank you again for all you do, you make such a positive impact being part of developing our leadership

The best presentation of the day … wish we had a longer session on this. Even a full day session would be very beneficial

Great, fresh approach. Great speaker, very engaging. Lots of fun and self awareness, great presentation skills. Interesting and fun

Petris brought a brilliant perspective to our recent leadership summit and gave our team some easy to use and effective tools to help them deal with the more difficult periods in ife. We would highly recommend Petris to any organisation looking to provide their staff with personal development and help them improve the resources they have inside themselves.

Thank you so much for your presentation on the weekend. I had many comments from our team about how great it was and the phrase ‘it is what it is’ has been thrown around a lot since then. I know that our team got a lot of value from it and that it will give them great tools to use during the difficult times

Could I have a copy of your PowerPoint 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.

Every time I hear you speak I pick up something new

It was the best webinar I have attended

She was personal and the tips were fantastic

Excellent presenter. Important topic

Enjoyed the session tremendously

So thank you

Petris Lapis has left a lasting impression I think on everyone who was there … Petris was amazing. I just want to say you are amazing … And thank you for turning my day around, I felt really uplifted after your session. I’ve been practising the 90 sec rule and learning to give people my undivided attention … gosh it makes such a difference.

Petris is an absolutely phenomenal presenter! Her sessions were extremely engaging. Petris’ content is of a very high standard and is extremely relatable and useful in every day life. Thank you Petris! I hope that we see you again in the future.

I attended your seminar this morning and found it so interesting. We came back to work straight away and shared what we learnt this morning with the rest of the staff and already we are trying to work out how we can implement some strategies in our workplace to help reduce distractions.

It was a great seminar. I really learnt a lot about how much time I waste trying to multi-task and it has definitely already helped me become more efficient this week by having a bit more awareness of the issue.

Thank you so much for presenting. We had lots of positive feedback, our guests always enjoy your sessions. Look forward to working with you again soon! – TS Marketing Coordinator

Petris was brilliant. She gave us practical insights into how to facilitate creative thinking in our own business/workplaces. The skills were very transferrable! Thank you! – Participant from International Business Conference

Thank you for an excellent session. I really enjoyed it and the interaction was brilliant. Our lawyers really enjoy engaging in our sessions. – CM Senior PD Officer State Law Society

This is by far the best wellness seminar I have seen, heard, read or attended. Ms Lapis’s advice, explanations, examples, practical approach and illustrative stories for dealing with stress and change is not sufficiency conveyed when I say : “Excellent, great job.” – ES Senior Legal Officer

Many thanks for your time on Saturday. Participants found the session most helpful and rated your presentation highly. Many thanks also as you gave us what we wanted and needed.

It was such a great start for our teaching staff for the new school year – I cannot thank you enough. – MG Assistant Principal

We had a wonderful PD session with you, which many of our staff commented was one of the best PD’s they have ever attended. It was just fantastic! Thank you so much for everything. – CG Special School Communication Leader

Tori

Management Accountant

I have just finished listening to your brilliant webinar. Thank you so much for recording it so quickly on such short notice. I have already shared my review comments with the delivery team and recommended this webinar for [our] employees as well. So much useful content and simple practical tips that each of us can easily apply to help ourselves and people around you. … I also really like how you use multiple-choice questions to keep the focus of listeners. You have probably been told many times Petris that you are a great story teller, I still remember some stories from your webinars and sessions that I reviewed or listened to ages ago. This webinar was definitely a micro-lift for me today and can hopefully help many members.

Professional Development Consultant - Education And Learning

Thank you Petris. I thought it was perfect and I am so grateful to you. Thank you also for sharing your story.
