Following is a sample of some of the comments made by readers and workshop attendees:
Personal Branding Workshop
Click here for a review written by a past student Maureen Helen. Her key comments were:
I came away with … an awareness that I’d experienced both personal growth and professional development; a clear understanding about the need for integration as person and as a writer; new energy and enthusiasm generated by working with an expert facilitator and a group of like-minded people; many good ideas; a working-model for a brand I want to refine and pursue. Thank you to Glennys for her wisdom … she brought a wealth of experience in branding and in writing to the day, and but also the skill and a certain gentleness that encouraged all participants to share their knowledge and ideas in truly interactive ways. Reflecting on the day, one word that springs immediately to my mind is generosity, not only of the facilitator, but also of the participants as we discussed image and branding, and much else as well.
Blog The Ponder Room
Glennys Marsdon she writes neat & brief fun blog entries that have a great visual feel and are not too long to read – she also engages readers through questions and ‘guiding’ the reader to hold an opinion or share thoughts on the topic! Good example for a laid back ‘news with a difference’ Perth based blogger.
‘Marsdon takes everyday activities such as going to the bathroom or driving in your car and finds a way to turn them into ‘me time’. Start yours by reading more than 100 strategies for gaining guilt-free time just for you.’ Review: by WritingWA in The West Australian.
‘It’s practical, it’s realistic, it’s helpful . It would make a nice gift. It’s also funny and doesn’t take itself too seriously. That being said it’s based on serious research and we can all benefit from having time where we can recharge or be alone or be absent: whatever you need. It’s amazing how many of the suggestions are so simple and achievable, yet I never would have thought of them, and as a mother of three small children I love and need my me time.’ Full review at www.weekendnotes.com Review: By Shannon Meyerkort Weekend Notes

‘An amazing array of emotions resulted reading it, happiness, sadness and hope’
‘I enjoyed it enormously and admire you a great deal for having the courage to put it together. It’s and insight in two ways – grief from the point of view of someone going through the process, and from the point of view of someone who is observing the griever! It deserves to be read widely’
‘What a clever girl, the text touched me on so many issues, the chapter about cancelling Christmas was just what we did. I’m going to offer the book to the Hospice library, after I have one more read.’
To e-publish on not to e-publish
‘I thought it was wonderful and I am very impressed with your research. I learnt heaps and I’m a published eBook author’ Marlene Rattigan editor.
‘Glennys’ wide experience in, and knowledge of, her topic made it a very interesting talk. One measure of how well a speaker’s topic is received is by the number of questions it invokes, and by that measure Glennys’ talk was indeed very well received by the members’. Mundaring Rotary, three speaking engagements.
‘Thank you all for presenting at Subiaco Library’s first Published to Public! We have received some lovely feedback today and all of the feedback last night was fabulous.
