Meggie Palmer is a vibrant and engaging speaker! For her most recent engagement with QUT, she managed to create a strong connection with an audience of several hundred teenage girls and boys at the end of a long day … no easy task. She was refreshingly honest and gave hilarious anecdotes about her career in journalism. Her ability to laugh at herself was appreciated by the students. Her vulnerability in sharing her own hardships as a teen struck a chord with the audience. Meggie took instructions from us and stuck to the brief we provided. She was on message yet still creative in her approach to her story and how she interacted with the audience We would have no hesitation in recommending her to other corporate organization.– Queensland University of Technology
