“Promo’s are not always a true reflection of events. I am happy to report that this event was over and above any promo or even my own expectations.”
“She has a unique, heart-warming and gentle way of pulling people out of what seemed to be eternal darkness and helping them discover the light at the end of every tunnel.“
One of my greatest blessings was crossing paths with Nori. Her heart of gold has brought so much light not only into my life but also to others around her. She has a unique, heart-warming and gentle way of pulling people out of what seemed to be eternal darkness and helping them discover the light at the end of every tunnel. It is not just her life experience that makes her the best mentor, but it is her genuine compassion and generous heart that truly touches deep down to your core. I’ve could not have picked a better mentor/role model in my life.
“It was what she said, that started a chain of events, that took me through some transformational stages, making me a better person that I am now.”
There is a saying, “People don’t remember what you did or said to them, but they will remember how you made them feel”. However, with Norita, it was a combination of all of the above.
It wasn’t just how she made me feel, by just listening to me, and suggesting ideas, it was what she said, that started a chain of events, that took me through some transformational stages, making me a better person that I am now. While it took me a while to link what had happened to me to these particular sayings, I’m so glad for these to take place. I’ve learned not to rush things, and that everything happens for a reason at the right time and place.
I’m full of gratitude to have met Norita and spending time with her, now also participating in the events she
With love and gratitude, always,
She brought such an uplifting and fun energy to a subject that is often difficult for others to talk about
I was surrounded by positive people and vibes – we had lots of fun!
“We’ve all been to afternoon teas that we’ve enjoyed and talked about afterwards, but the launch of Strive and Thrive was something else again.”
“To hear the heartfelt stories and feel the emotion in the room … there was not one person who wouldn’t have been touched by some of the things they heard.
It wasn’t just about sharing their stories, the presenters are passionate about using their experiences to help others who need it, and that help is available in so many different forms.
For me it wasn’t just listening to a counsellor or a coach talking, it was about living through the experiences with each of the presenters and seeing how they have come out the other side to be happy and successful, and in a position to help others, and to pass on this information so others can do the same.
Good on you Norita for having the courage and the drive to bring Strive and Thrive together (in such a short space of time) with the intention of giving hope and confidence to others to see the light at the end of the tunnel and be the best they can be.”
“There were laughs and healing tears leaving me feeling both at peace with the world and excited for what life held for me next.”
“The inaugural Strive and Thrive event in January 2016 was one of a kind. With a room full of people wanting to better themselves and talented speakers, it provided a combination of learning, inspiration and fun. There were laughs and healing tears leaving me feeling both at peace with the world and excited for what life held for me next. “
“..So refreshing to see a well organised event run truly from the heart and truly for a greater cause.”
“I am looking forward to connecting again with so many wonderful, like minded people and businesses at the next event! “
“I was fortunate enough to attend the first Strive and Thrive event. Even though I had known Nori for a little while prior to this event, I had no idea of the challenges she had faced in her life and the way she had worked to overcome them where possible and learn to live with them where she had to.
Not only did she give an incredible talk, so did the other speakers she brought together. Kristy Ambrose from Skillz for Kids moved the room to tears with her heartfelt presentation and Carolyn Verhoef lifted the mood and got everyone moving with her Shy Girls Belly Dance demo.
I am looking forward to connecting again with so many wonderful, like minded people and businesses at the next event! Thank you so much Nori and Shaun and your team for the fab event you put together”
“The Strive and Thrive launch was uplifting, fun and energetic. It raised awareness and the spirits of everyone who attended”
“Norita’s own story of triumph over many challenging issues including her brain injury was especially touching.”
“I was honoured & thrilled to be a part of the first ever Strive & Thrive event. To be invited to present to a room of people and inspire & help people dealing with such issues as anxiety and depression was such a gift. Norita’s own story of triumph over many challenging issues including her brain injury was especially touching. The way in which Norita is choosing to reach out and help prevent other’s from suffering is truly uplifting. What a positive, shining example! I am looking forward to Strive & Thrive’s next event!“
“It was so inspirational to hear Norita’s story and to meet so many great new people…”
“I attended Norita’s Strive and Thrive launch event without knowing what to expect and I have to say I am so grateful I got invited by a friend to join. It was so inspirational to hear Norita’s story and to meet so many great new people all being in the same boat and willing to network to all help each other out getting closer to our passion. And apart from that it was actually also a real carefree fun event. There’s something for everyone.”
“I suddenly feel so blessed for my crappy life after hearing Norita’s story…”
“Having a family who fights a lot and my own personal dramas made me realised I need to find new direction. I saw Strive and Thrive’s launch event ad on Facebook and something tells me I should go. And I am glad I did. All this time I thought my life was crap but after hearing Norita’s story, I feel sorry and guilty that I thought my life was crap! The event was truly inspiring and though I do not know anyone there but I feel ‘home’. I wasn’t brave enough to talk to you Norita but I think you are so amazing to have come up so positively after what you have been through. You made me realised that only I can make a choice to change and I will change because I want to be happy. So Thank you and I will hug you next time I see you at your next event.”
