Thank you for accepting our invite to speak. You did a sterling job as I received positive feedback from all. It was a difficult session as the managers had been in meetings all day. Performance levels were down and heads were lolling so well done to you.
Thank you for presenting to the team in Uitenhage. I spoke to a number of people who attended the presentation. Without exception they were SO positive! Staff really enjoyed the talk and learned a lot from it. Your thoughts on proactively improving health were excellent.
All the delegates thoroughly enjoyed your presentation. It was informative, educational, thought provoking and entertaining. The question and answer session also proved very valuable. We look forward to using you as a speaker again in the future.
I really enjoyed your talk, thank you so much. You spoke of the things I believe in – I advocate – I love. I was enticed into the health profession by these ideas. They are the ideas that my grandfather and mother taught me. It was great to hear them from a colleague. So, thank you and good work – keep going from strength to strength.
Diet is both a topical and sensitive issue. Therefore, we thought a nutrition expert would be perfect to address our guests. It is difficult to find a presenter who holds an audience captive. But you managed to enthrall all with your passion and humour. Judging by the rapt attention and laughter, you were a resounding success.
Your presentation was fascinating and insightful. You emphasised that everyone is unique. Therefore, knowledge is key in supporting one’s unique mind and body. Your balanced approach to eating compared to a life of yoyo dieting and scale-watching is the best advice on offer.
Thank you for presenting at our first ladies function of 2018. And thanks also for sharing your knowledge with us. We found your talk very motivating and extremely informative. We all left with food for thought and admire your enthusiasm for life!
On behalf of the management team, many thanks for your presentation. We so enjoyed the way you approached health and wellness. Your initiative resonated – we’re also very pleased with the results. In addition to fascinating, your talks were great fun!
I want to compliment NMU for this most valuable wellness course. Tanya’s approach and expert knowledge of health and fitness is truly amazing. I loved every minute. I’m also enjoying sharing the knowledge with family and colleagues.
Tanya was a speaker at one of our parent meetings. Since then, she has engaged with pupils in order to tackle diet and wellness. She is an excellent communicator and is passionate about her work. Her continued interest and support is very valued. I applaud her in her efforts to change the face of tuck shops at our schools.
Thank you again for taking the time to speak to the girls today. The subjects of self-esteem and eating issues was very well received. The girls found it incredibly informative and it gave them food for thought. The issue of self-appearance vs self-worth offered some healthy debate. We will definitely invite you back for more!
