Testimonial from Ballarat Grammar School:

“Thank you so very much for your generosity today! Your presentation was engaging, relevant, and informative. And as gauged by the questions being asked, your interesting speech was perfectly pitched for our young people. You challenged the audience and made us think. Thank you for being a fitting International Women’s Day presenter.”


Testimonial from Ballarat Tech School:

“Your presentation was spot on and well targeted towards the interests and needs of the girls, who were able to relate to your school experiences and then see a career path that is real and possible. Your positive comments and feedback for each of the teams presenting their product design ideas were kind, specific and useful. This enabled the girls to see where they had hit the mark and where they could enhance their ideas.”


Testimonial from mentee:

“Ellen has been an ally for my solo, female-led business. Open and honest about her journey, Ellen has been so helpful in navigating starting and running a business. Ellen fosters community with fellow women in business and those in her local community, which naturally paves the way for opportunities and connections to develop.”
