Anita's speech was informative and engaging, and her enthusiasm and warmth is infectious. We have received many very positive responses to her talk at our staff conference last week. - The University of Melbourne, 2018

Dr Anita Heiss bought her expertise, knowledge, and verve, as MC and co-convenor of a significant Professional Development event for teachers at The University of Queensland. The teachers learnt how to appropriately use Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories in the school context. Almost 100 teachers unanimously praised Anita’s contribution to the day’s activities. Working with Anita is a very rewarding experience. - University of Queensland, 2017

Anita was fabulous. She was engaging to all audience members. Strong, articulate, humorous and deadly! Would more than recommend her to others and book her again.  NSW Dept of Education, 2017

Well researched and well thought out speech very appropriate for the occasion, and extremely interesting to our audience. It was perfect. Anita's presentation exceeded our expectations. - Libraries ACT, 2017
