“We used Wendy as a guest speaker to round off our Wellbeing Week. Wendy was really friendly, approachable and had an amazing and very inspirational story. Wendy stayed on the call for a Q&A which made the event much more personable which was fantastic. Her approach at looking at both physical and mental health and how they interlink was extremely insightful and something we found beneficial as it is something that can affect both your personal and professional lives! This is the second time we have worked with Champions and it has been an absolute pleasure.” - Amy, CMS Distribution

"Wendy is one of the most eloquent passionate and genuine speakers that you will come across. Speaking from her heart, she sparks fire in others. She has the ability to lift the spirit of those who hear her and have them want to fulfil their potential. What a gift! I feel very fortunate that Wendy spends some of her time with on the 'be the best you can be' schools project."- David, Olympic Gold Medallist, Co-Author & Co-Director Of The Project

"After spending many years in a special military environment it was a pleasure to meet Wendy and to continue to work in partnership with her. Wendy’s expertise with how the mind and body work as one system is not only interesting but insightful. Many of the delegates that partake in training are quickly immersed in their own self and belief systems that enable them to fully reflect on how they live their daily lives and what impacts they have made through lives assumptions and conclusions. It is not only group work but the more personable one to one sessions where people are provided with tools for life. When working with Wendy you will be assured that if you are willing to listen with your eyes and your ears, Wendy will provide you with choices that enable you to grow as an individual or group without limitation." - John, Advanced Tactical Resources Limited

"Wendy Smith attended a prestigious and highly sensitive ceremony held in recognition of the outstanding achievements made by vulnerable young people in the capacity of a special guest. In the presence of other dignitaries she presented herself as a model of professionalism yet inspiration through her personable demeanour and motivating words. She demonstrated flexibility in her communication, motivation through her emotive expressions and encouragement in her empathy. In my experience, Wendy is someone who has an innate understanding of the different challenges that vulnerable young people and adults are faced with in the course of their personal and professional life and provides them with the reassurance throughout her own experiences that there is always a way forward."

"A great speaker and even better individual - I would definitely be looking to bring Wendy back again and will highly recommend her to anyone." - Kashif, LAC Awards Organiser
