We just had the most amazing day in Brisbane so wanted to share a little bit of the wonderful feedback!

"Thanks Michael and Maciek for such an inspiring day. The Thrive program was fantastic and I am glad to have been a part of such a unique experience."

"Thanks to Michael Bromley and Maciek Motylinski for creating a safe space for a day of inspiration and learning for each participant and facilitator; a day of impactful and inspiring stories where we each left with something to enrich our journey. "

"Congratulations Michael and Maciek on putting together a phenomenal program, with such inspiring speakers.  You should both feel very proud of what you’ve achieved, and the difference you’ve made to the lives of each of us who attended Thrive yesterday.  I agree it’s not easy to put into words - but I think maybe best summed up by the word ‘magic’.”
