Published author and triathlete, Brett Murray, travels the world raising awareness of bullying. He's visiting high schools in Wagga this week, sharing his personal journey and presenting his 'Make Bullying History' project.Posted by WIN News Riverina on Tuesday, 19 May 2015
"At the Australian Defence Force Academy I experienced world-class speakers on a regular basis. Brett is a world class speaker with a message that can make a real difference in society. Bullying affects everyone whether at school, work or in the military. Brett's enthusiasm, drive and message are second to none and I consider it a privilege to hear him speak."
Thanks again for an outstanding seminar. The children still talk about Brett and their understanding of bullying is a lot more real. The amount of bullying we are seeing has considerably dropped.

I've just come home from your event at Turramurra High and my mind is just buzzing from all the information you presented. You're brilliant and I want to thank you for making this mum really re-evaluate her parenting.

Hi Stephanie, just wanted to say thank you for our talk today from Brett Murray. I was overwhelmed by his thoughts on bullying, and has given me much food for thought, not only at school, but even in our own lives, past and present. He was so engaging and dedicated to the cause, it gives me great comfort for future generations.

Thank you very much for organising this most enthralling and educational seminar. Not just our kids had learnt and benefited but we as parents too. The two hours seminar was very well spent and was one of the most valuable to us. We are very fortunate to have you and Brett Murray who had worked tirelessly to educate our kids (and us parents) the very complex society that we are in today.
Once again, THANK YOU

Thank you for the invitation to the positive parenting evening. Brett Murray was both entertaining and informative. It was an affirming evening and also encouraging. Sophie came home from school talking about Brett’s presentation and ideas. It will help me greatly in guiding her through the coming years.

“Brett Murray is one of life’s “Givers”. I asked Brett to open the 2006 Inaugural Youth Convention and was delighted with his care, attention to detail and adherence to my criteria. Brett under promised and over delivered in his presentation, making clear and significant connection with his audience. Brett challenges, inspires, empathizes with and creates an individual experience for his entire audience. He is a sure bet inclusion in any program.”

We were extremely fortunate to have Brett Murray as a guest speaker. He was an excellent speaker, the guests were captivated. He has the ability to share his story and experiences to the audience with amazing skill and finesse.
We conduct evaluations for all the activities at the camp. Brett Murray received some wonderful positive comments which I quote below:
“he was amazing – that speech will have changed my life”
“the part of the weekend that had the most impact; Brett Murray”
“Brett Murray inspired me to change into who I am and follow my dreams”
“he was funny and made me confident”
More than 50% of the participants gave Brett 10/10 for his presentation.
I would highly recommend Brett for any speaking engagement.

Thank you very much for opening our year 11 seminar. The students not only enjoyed your motivational address but really listened to what you had to say. To see our students engrossed in the activities you presented and to become so involved in the ‘imagine’ exercise – all eyes closed and dreaming of future possibilities for themselves - was really something to behold; some students even had tears in their eyes!
You really had an impact.
……I can highly recommend your presentation to anyone…..”

......You cannot begin to imagine the impact you had on Rowville Secondary College – EVERYONE is talking about you – and it is all good!!!!! I have done some preliminary data collection from the kids who saw your presentation - the top three comments so far were:
· He was so funny
· He taught us not to live in the past
· We are all worth something/winners
EVERY SINGLE STUDENT SAID THEY WOULD RECOMMEND YOU TO OTHER SCHOOLS!!!!!!!
How cool is that!!! I have every intention of getting you back down to Melbourne before the end of the year.....
Thanks so much – I have learnt so much from listening to you myself!
Please keep in touch.
