The little Optimist , Greg Bertish and Karen Slater of Sailing SA  visit Springfield Junior School Talk  24/11/17

It’s all about finding and following your passion.  This week it was about introducing the kids to sailing and teaching them that little people can do big things if they follow their heart, their passion and dreams.

So much fun , laughs , learning and fantastic was had.

“ Hi Greg. I Just wanted to tell you that both my girls loved your talk at Springfield yesterday. They told us all about your adventures over dinner last night. It was so sweet to see. You really made an impact on them! They were super impressed when I told them afterwards that I actually know you! Thank you for inspiring them! “

Forres Pre Primary Awards Evening 17 November 2017

Dear Greg,

Thank you so much for a wonderful celebration evening message. You were by far the best speaker that we have had. It is not always easy to talk to a room of children and parents and be able to keep everyone interested and entertained, but you managed it perfectly. I have had so many emails and messages thanking me for getting you there!

Thank you too for your wonderful email. I am so glad that the way we do things at Forres resonated with you. Please spread the word! :):):)

I have asked our photographer to forward some pics to you but please like our Facebook page where they are already displayed.

I am more than happy to recommend you to all other schools as a guest speaker as I think that your method of buying books for lesser privileged schools is the perfect way of doing stuff like this.

Thank you for everything

Kind regards

Testimonial from the SABEX Chairman

08/11/2017

What the Chairman had to say;

Dear Greg,

Many thanks for giving up your valuable time to address the VIP Boat Show function.

Your presentation was mindblowing, without a doubt. Hugely inspirational and as a sailor addressing a room full of professional sailors and boatbuilders you took their breath away. A very special evening.

I expect that the Great Optimist Challenge next year will be over-subscribed. I have 11 confirmed entries from the boatbuilders I know. I hope we can find enough Oppies for the guys to buy, race and then donate to your cause.
Fight the good fight.

Safe sailing and good health.

Kind regards,
Bruce

“Hi Greg

Well-done on a great event that you put on last night with SUP Cape Town and Coreban. It was really great to see all the family’s out enjoying themselves and paddling on the canals. It was great in a way as plenty of new people were able to be introduced to SUP and able to get involved in a great cause with the Christmas presents for the kids at the Red Cross Hospital.

Letter To Greg From DHL

15/10/2013

“Dear Greg

I’d like to thank you for the phenomenal presentation you gave to our staff of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Your journey has been an absolutely inspirational one and, speaking on behalf of our office, was one that
provided many lessons to us – both as an organisation and, importantly, from a personal standpoint. It was a
refreshing take on a motivational speech, and gave us some food for thought.
I had many of my staff approach me afterwards to discuss it, and share the personal lessons it provided, which
is probably the best feedback that you can receive; that your talk impacted the audience it was intended for.
I would recommend it for any business or organisation looking to motivate its staff, or find an alternative
viewpoint on corporate crisis.
On behalf of the African Management Board for DHL Express, our staff at the SSA Regional Office and from
my personal perspective, thank you.
Kind Regards,
Charles Brewer
Managing Director DHL, Sub-Saharan Africa”
