‘Big Life Conversation’ with Mim and Jacinta McNena 94.1FM 10/2015
“Thanks again for a wonderful night”, a student wrote to me after Mim Bartlett’s presentation at Trinity College. Mim was an engaging, professional and informative speaker, who went beyond her information to challenge and equip students to take steps out of their comfort zones and make a difference in the world. Particularly notable was her sensitive and deft handling of the question and answer session after the talk. Not only did she answer questions with a refreshing personal authenticity, but she encouraged the students to develop their responses, to discuss and to take the questions deeper, empowering the students to take initiative for their own answers.
Dr Katherine Firth, Head of Academic Programs, Trinity College, Melbourne University
Thank you so much for speaking at the Mecca conference yesterday. I had dinner with the team last night and they were all raving about your session, nominating it as an absolute highlight of the day…talking about their ‘tribes’ and finding their ‘intersection’. Many many thanks for sharing your wisdom.
Jo Horgan, Founder MECCA Cosmetica
Mim Bartlett is an inspiring speaker who connects with audiences with a rare combination of intellect, warmth and a genuine passion for making a difference in the lives of others. Her recent keynote address on International Women’s Day is just one example of this, where she reminded us all why so many are seeking greater meaning and purpose from their careers and how we can achieve it. She also spoke to the importance of surrounding yourself with those that share your values and support you in achieving your goals and propel your forward. As work and life become far more integrated, perhaps this is a change we all need to make if we ourselves are to make a difference.

I heard Mim speak at a recent lunch about why we must all find our influence. Mim made a huge impact. She connected with the audience in a way that was highly relevant to them and inspired them to consider aspects of their own lives in light of her advice. She was engaging, motivating and made us all want to be the best we can be.
Vanessa Bede, Manager Home Loan Marketing NAB
Your talk was wonderful – the topics you raised were so interesting and thought-provoking. You captivated the audience with the story about your journey of influence, and gave each and every one of us something to think about and work on in our lives. You showed me how it is possible to tackle the issues that are important to us as individuals and try and make a difference in the world. You made such an impact yesterday, and for that I sincerely thank you.
Andrea James Friends of Melbourne Grammar Wadhurst President

I wanted to pass on how much I enjoyed listening to you – and that you have given me lots to think about with respect to my own career and life journey. You particularly inspired me by your personal level of passion and investment in what you do, in all aspects of your life.
Susie King, Director, Social Ventures Australia
Mim is a woman of value and substance who has thought about the world and sort to act to make a difference. Her passion in advocating for a better society is clear in all that she does. She speaks in a warm and inspiring way about the challenges she has faced and how she seeks to make the world a better place. Her aspirations are to light the fire of change in those that she can influence.
Professor Katie Allen, Theme Director, Murdoch Childrens Research Insititute
Mim Bartlett gave an address at our school recently to mark International Women’s Day. Her speech, for an audience of students, staff, parents and past pupils, was engaging and thought provoking. Mim was easily able to hold the attention of this diverse group with her warmth, good humour and clarity of delivery. Her message about the need to find and celebrate our ‘inner change-maker’ resonated with adults and girls alike, encouraging us all to reflect and re-imagine the place of passion and purpose in our lives. Mim’s emphasis on our responsibility to stand up for social justice in all aspects of our life certainly reflected the mission and values of our school community. Mim is an inspiring woman who gives great witness to the fact that our professional lives, our family and personal lives, and our passions and dreams can and should intersect; she defines the identification of this intersection as critical in leading a fulfilled life, and role models the same.
In her busy life as professional, wife, mother to three beautiful young men, friend and colleague, we were grateful to Mim for her generosity and enthusiasm in accepting our invitation to speak. Mim’s address was wonderful!
Susan Stevens, Principal, Loreto
Thank you for the invaluable and energising messages you gave at our Women In Focus International Women’s Day event. Several clients have contacted me after the lunch to comment on the clarity of your advice, the personal stories you shared and the call to action your discussion has created for them. Insights around one’s work being sustainable and valuable when it intersects with your purpose have caused me to reflect.
Did you notice how quiet the room remained? Your professional, clear and positive delivery of each message managed to engage both the executives and school children in attendance.
Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again.
Amanda Coombs, Regional General Manager, CBA
