Presenter of the Week

Patrick GuestPatrickGuest


Patrick Guest -- http://creativenetspeakers.com/index.php/authors-a-illustrators/victoria/293-patrick-guest -- is offering an inspiring presentation/workshop aimed at 15-18 year old students and sponsored by Donate Life Australia. Patrick's new book, Rabby the Brave was inspired by a friend who donated a kidney to her husband.

'The Hero's Journey' project is part-writing workshop, part-motivational speech where senior students are welcomed to adulthood, invited into a heroic life and made aware (without pressure) that 16 year-olds are eligible to make the profoundly grownup decision to register for organ donation. The program is free of charge and will run until July 2019 throughout Victorian Secondary Schools.
