Street Stories

Every few weeks, Wendy sits down for a coffee to reflect on her own life or ask another person to share how their experiences have shaped them. Sometimes up-lifting, often challenging, but always a tale to make you realise that life is a gift.

We were talking after the suicide of a friend and someone came up with the idea that we should make a podcast; not knowing it would be a mental health podcast.

Conversation Club

Wendy started Conversation Club in 2015 to empower people to make better-informed decisions for themselves and those they care about. At each event, Wendy often invites two guest speakers to talk about issues familiar to many of us, from living with anxiety to understanding how to be financially empowered. At Conversation Club the first guest shares with Wendy and the audience the story of a challenge they have confronted. The second speaker, who has professional and academic expertise in guiding people through similar challenges, shares their insights. Recent events have featured guests as diverse as world champion surfer Tom Carroll, beauty editor Stephanie Darling and ASX100 CEO Georgette Nicholas.
