Hi Greg,

Just a quick note to say Thank you so much for your talk today!
Your talk certainly inspired and touched me in a huge way.
The feedback has been phenomenal!
Your presentation was brilliant, you are a natural speaker, so warm and engaging.

You certainly made a lasting impression on Mr Nel (Headmaster), and I have already started following up on getting you in to talk to the boys & really want to make sure it happens. All the boys need to hear your story.
I would love to help you to with the book launch whether it be by hosting it at the school or any way possible. As I really believe that you have an incredible message to share with both young & old.
Please send me your bank details, so we can transfer a donation.

Please stay in touch as we would like to help you make a difference.

Kind regards

Thank You Greg Bertish
Hi Greg – you recently spoke at my sons school Reddam Constantia at their sports awards, I have to say I was blown away – it was an amazing speech and you have inspired all my athletes at home (I have 4 boys and one girl).  Thank you for being who you are and for being able and willing to share it with us.

Reddam Winter Sports Awards

Reddam Constantia was honoured to have Greg Bertish as the quest of honour at the annual Winter Sports Awards Ceremony.
Greg gave an inspiring Power Point presentation about his life to date. He also shared life lessons with our audience focusing on “Never, ever give up, “Living your life passion….” and taking “resilience to a new level”

Reddam House has agreed to make a donation of R2000-00 towards the Children’s Hospital Trust fund for the Red Cross hospital.

With thanks

Greetings From The Spirit Foundation

Dear Greg

I was lucky enough to listen to you talk at Reddam School last week and I found it moving and inspiring, as did my son Connor a Grade 11 crazy surfer and recipient of an award that day for soccer. The Spirit Foundation was formed in 1994 by myself and Tess Smit to offer high school education to disadvantaged scholars, we now support 100 scholars at a dozen schools. I would like you to please consider talking at our annual registration day, the 2016 registration will be in early December this year, and I will call you later this week to discuss the possibility.

Keep up the great work and I will call you soon.
Kind regards
Ian K.
