Gill recently spoke at the Exeter PA Network breakfast meeting, and the room was spell bound by her story. She spoke so eloquently about such a deeply personal and difficult topic. She built rapport with the audience and her delivery was clear and engaging. Amazing job - very thought provoking. Gill is truly inspirational!
Kim Glover ~ Exeter PA Network
Gill delivered an extremely impactful testimony of her battle with depression and subsequent suicide attempt to an engaged audience of approximately 500 people. Gill’s testimony was accessible, succinct and powerful, enabling others to understand an experience that is stigmatised and isolating. I would highly recommend Gill to any group or organisation seeking a speaker with lived experience of mental health challenges.
