Jane Libbis – Family Lawyer

I cannot speak highly enough of Bronte’s LGBTIQ+ Inclusivity Course. Not only did it improve the way I communicate with LGBTIQ+ clients but it also gave me a far greater understanding of the history of LGBTIQ+ issues in Australia which has enriched me as a person.

Anne Young – Authorised Civil Celebrant

I am always conscious of delivering a service (wedding or funeral or any other celebration of life) with the correct protocol and respect for my clients (regardless of gender). When marriage equality was legalised in Australia in 2017, I was very keen to be learn as much as possible (and then some) about the LGBTQI community. As soon as I was aware of your masterclasses I enrolled pronto – what an investment. Learnt so much, your style, knowledge and delivery of the classes was excellent. At each session I felt very comfortable and at ease and went away a far more informed Celebrant (and person). When I was approached to deliver my first Gay Memorial Service for a very popular personality, I didn’t hesitate because I had the tools to communicate with the family and having you as my mentor to ensure the service was written with dignity, grace and love made my delivery a great comfort to the mourners. Even though you were not present, I felt you cheering me on. I would never have been able or confident to do this without attending your Masterclasses. Highly commend and recommend thank you Bronte.

"Companies that are breaking the mold are moving beyond corporate social responsibility to social innovation. These companies are the vanguard of the new paradigm. They view community needs as opportunities to develop ideas and demonstrate business technologies, to find and serve new markets, and to solve long-standing business problems."
