Inspirational and uplifting

"I thought I'd drop a line to let you know how much I enjoyed your presentation ... I was moved to tears and was inspired into action by your journey. I have done various volunteer work over the years, but have been a bit quiet of late.  Recently I've been thinking about joining Lifeline as a telephone counsellor, but it was on the backburner.  I have now taken the step. Thank you!  We need more people like you to inspire us."

– WHK Group PD Conference delegate

"The presentation and team exercise with Jonathon Welch was definitely the highlight of the conference."

"It was really refreshing to have a non-sports guest speaker (in Jonathon Welch) at the conference. Jonathon had such an inspiring story to share, with a community focus, that I'm sure inspired the hearts & minds of the conference attendees. The Team exercise sing-along was also heaps of fun."

"The team exercise with Jonathon was excellent - great to have a non-sporting hero inspiring us. Well done team!"

"The choir session was excellent – uplifting and the guest speaker inspiring."

"Jonathon is excellent. Having done a lot of that kind of group-based/team-bulding activity, I think the exercise he ran was spectacular."

"Jonathon Welch was fantastic. Everyone remarked it was a great change from the usual sportsperson, and I agree. Well done!"
