Running thoughts

From our recent presenters

Portrait of Aretha Brown

I think that you can only talk about a group of people for so long, where you are literally just talking about them and you don’t actually understand their experiences.

Portrait of Graeme Simsion

The most important thing I learned from working in another profession was how long it takes to become expert.

Portrait of Carly Findlay

When you tell your story it helps others who have similar experiences to you get their courage to tell theirs, or read or listen to it and feel less alone.
