My Disabled Perception

I have recently worked with Brittany on my Youtube channel, My Disabled Perception. She is a wonderful person and great at motivational speaking.

In my opinion it would be a great advantage to you and your company to hear what she has to share about Ability over Disability.

Ability Not Disability Virtual Event

Congratulations on an amazing virtual motivational talk. It was absolutely inspiring, motivating and just all round enjoyable talk.

You spoke from the heart and that touched me so much more than other motivational speakers, as you were talking about yourself, your own personal experience and relationships with others throughout your life.

I loved the interaction from other people too. You spoke clear, fluent and articulate. You so enjoyed yourself and that showed. Your love for what you do and what you stand for comes through during your talk and that is just so inspiring.

I eagerly await for your next talk


Ability Not Disability Virtual Event

We Throughly enjoyed Brittany’s presentation. It left us feeling very mindful, motivated and educated.
It taught us to remember to be more patient in everyday life. It really impacted us positively. We feel very blessed and grateful Thank you for making a difference in our lives.


Ability Not Disability Virtual Event

What I enjoyed about the presentation was the personal and raw aspects of it. To hear statistics and read off information is one thing, but to hear Brittany's true account of
her experience, how she has adapted and over come obstacles was truly awe inspiring. What impacted me was her resilience, and her positive and motivating demeanour with which she spoke. It was truly a beautiful learning experience and I was grateful to be apart of it.

*What I enjoyed:*
• I really liked the fact that there was a Power Point Presentation as the talk was happening - visualizing helps the viewers so that was a good point

*What motivated me to come to the talk:*
• Brit’s passion for life and perseverance for reaching her goals alone inspire me - so listening to her speak is just an extension of how she inspires me already.

*What impacted me the most:*
• When Brit explained to acknowledge the disabled as people simply by greeting them, smiling at them or if possible, talking to them. They are as much people as I am.

These are the points that impacted and changed my life because before watching the presentation I thought if I had to one day have a disabled child, I possibly wouldn't have coped but after watching and listening to Brittany speak and present that changed drastically.
