Speaking & Presentations
Lions Samford - Personal Blindspots
"Chris attended a meeting of the Lions Club of Samford and facilitated an informal session, during which, we heard our members articulating their strengths. Chris spoke of the importance of understanding our strengths as an important way of identifying our weaknesses. Chris was engaging and friendly, and openly shared her own stories. Chris was well prepared, prompt in her responses to emails, and a pleasure to deal with."

Women’s “Time Out” Network - Personal Blindspots
“We recently had the pleasure of engaging Chris Wildeboer to speak at our Women’s Time Out Network. The presentation was entertaining insightful and had a great take home for the ladies with a small workshop component ... Chris was very easy to work with and she allowed plenty of time to interact with the visitors on the day. Overall the presentation was well put together, informative and I highly recommend Chris as a speaker if you are interested in what she does at Balance Central.”
Break Free… from your Ball and Chain
Break Free from your Ball and Chain – a collaboration with Jo Hassan and Sally Foley-Lewis. An evening of networking nibbles and inspiration to help break free from ….your blind spots… your business to have a life…. You doing it all which drags you down.
Chris Wildeboer presented Personal Blind spots looking at.

• Identifying Your Self Talk
Jo Hassan (www.pinkwise.com.au) presented Vibrant Business, Vibrant Life - sacking business owners and turning them into business developers
Sally Foley-Lewis (www.sallyfoleylewis.com) presented The Big 3 - how to manage people and be productive.
“I have previously worked with Chris and have heard Jo speak on a number of occasions.
Chris Wildeboer - Chris works in an area that is difficult to articulate, but put simply, she helps you overcome obstacles that occur in life, that you can’t seem to see around. As a business person this could be a mental block that is stopping you from achieving what you are trying to achieve in business or in life. Spend some time with Chris and you will be amazed how you can find your way around these obstacles.
Jo Hassan - Jo on the other hand is completely practical. Through her system of red, yellow and green days she helps you find efficiencies in your business by developing systems and procedures, giving you back life, time and perspective, freeing you to be more creative and get on with building your business.
Sally Foley-Lewis - This is the first time that I have heard Sally speak. Whilst she is not only an engaging presenter, she does really know her stuff around leadership and managing people. If you do get the opportunity to attend one of her presentations, it will be a great use of your time.”

“A holistic approach to healing your business and gaining some balance back into your life. Three very experienced women who are generous with their time and experience.”
“I can highly recommend to you, if you’re considering going to hear any or all three of these successful business women speak, to do whatever it takes to get yourself along. When Balance Central – Chris Wildeboer, Red Day Coaching – Jo Hassan and Management Success – Sally Foley-Lewis spoke at the Break Free event – 3 so different business presentations yet fitted all together like a glove. There was plenty of laughter and thought provoking to move yourself or your business forward.”

Conscious Entrepreneurs - Personal Blindspots
“Chris Wildeboer presented her talk, Personal Blindspots, to The Conscious Entrepreneur group. She did a wonderful job of engaging the audience and painting a picture of what a Personal Blindspot might look like and the impact it might have on each individual. The journey she took us on allowed for every member of the group to explore their own personal blindspots in a way that was gentle, supportive and fun to explore.
As the host of the group I love to observe the audiences response and I can honestly say that they were immersed in Chris' talk and they benefitted from the insightful practical activity that Chris had devised Chris did a great job of reading the group, responding to questions and keeping to time! The outcome was that there was a wonderful energy of sharing and connection within the group and I would highly recommend Chris as a speaker.”
Nicole Donaldson - The Conscious Entrepreneur

Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs Workshop – Being Balanced in Business
“I recently invited Chris to run a workshop for the Sunshine Coast Women Entrepreneurs. My not for profit organisation offers 1.5 hour workshops on skills that will help take business women to the next level. Chris was professional, punctual, thoughtful, organised and flexible, all attributes bound to please a busy event organiser! There were lots of aha moments during the workshop, and I personally experienced a breakthrough on an issue in my business that had lingered for years. Thanks Chris for sharing your gifts with us - the shifts in consciousness, and the balance found, will certainly see our businesses powering into the new year!”

RAW Food & Healthy Living - Unconscious Living
“Chris Wildeboer is a dynamic presenter and it was an absolute pleasure of hosting her at one of our monthly events. The talk that she kindly delivered was an excellent subject for our members and their guests who gained valuable insights into 'Unconscious Living'
Chris' delivery and interaction with the 27 audience members kept them involved, and it was clear that they were engaged by her stories, insights, sincerity, and her message.”

The Kitchen Table Network - Decluttering for Christmas (joint presentation with Kerri Rodley)
“Chris is passionate about what she does and it certainly comes across in her presentations. She has a relaxed and warm manner which allows her audience to relax as well. She offers useful advice and information which is not only easy to understand but easy to incorporate into everyday life. The best presenters are always good story tellers and Chris has the ability to relate to everyone in the room by sharing stories to get her point across. I always look forward to hearing Chris present and always come away learning something new.”
Jackie Price, The Kitchen Table Network
Business to Business - Unconscious Business
“Chris, I thought you would appreciate hearing some of the feedback from your presentation at the B2BB Networking event in October. Some of the words used were “inspirational”, “thought provoking” and “entertaining”. Too often we just accept that we need use our left brain to run a business but you pointed out why we need balance and importantly how to release the “valve” when needed and everyone really got that, thank you.
I would also like to thank you from the perspective of being an organiser for being prepared, proactive and organised. As an organiser it is very much appreciated when our speakers are ready to go without a hitch. Good luck with Balance Central; the business world needs more balance!”
Shirley Farrell, Business 2 Business Brisbane Co-organiser
Networking Chats - Unconscious Business
“I have had the pleasure of being present twice now when Chris Wildeboer from Balance Central has been a presenter. Chris’s enthusiasm for her work and her life comes across as she takes her listener on a journey of what has made her who she is today. Her story and experience is moving as she endeavours to support not only her clients but also her audience into understanding the work that she does.
As hard as it is to express the power of her work, she finds a way of demonstrating it so that there is no doubt what she is talking about. Whether you hear her personal story or how she expresses her work, I feel that no one will be left without a greater understanding not only of Chris but of themselves as well.”
Business Equator - Personal Story about Creating Balance Central
“Having Chris speak at the Business Equator event was awesome. Chris is able to explain in clear and concise ways how she is able, with her modality to work with business people. She gave a great talk and held me interested the whole way through. I came away knowing what her service offered and how it could benefit.”
Margaret Wilmink, Neways
“Chris recently spoke at Business Equator regarding her journey to establishing Balance Central. It was a heartfelt story and gave me a real insight into Chris “the person”. I would recommend Chris for her down to earth presentation.”
