Testimonies from The Motivated and The Inspired

When we were looking for someone different, with a REAL story to share with business people across Australia, we chose Rosie Pekar and her “Kick But” message. In a nationwide tour for our Blast into 2004! Seminar Series, Rosie was a stand-out success! Over 1,000 Australia businesses were stirred with her passion, heartfelt life story and her unique presentation skills. Audience feedback rated Rosie as a star amongst seasoned presenters. A new star is shining brightly – I couldn’t recommend Rosie Pekar any more highly than this… Rosie you are an inspiration!

Ken Marslew, Enough is Enough. Anti-Violence Movement.

Just a short note to tell you how much I enjoyed your presentation Rosie, you really had them. We could have heard a pin drop, and I know from comments afterwards that the audience loved you. In sharing those personal life experiences, the points you make are very powerful indeed. Great job (and I’ve been in this business 26 years now).

I have received a lot of positive feedback from staff in terms of both the content and delivery of the presentation.

Rosie’s ability to relate to those present and in her own way communicate extremely complicated aspects of human behavior, beliefs and attitudes in simple yet meaningful ways played a significant part in the employees understanding just how important their job roles were towards making our club a successful business enterprise. Success due to the inspiration and very humorous Rosie.

Positive, Exciting and Inspiring! Kick But has succeeded in training my staff to observe and deal with situations in a whole new light. Rosemary’s seminars, workshop and book have transformed my team from “maybe, I’m not sure”, into “I can, I will …”. Rosemary Pekar is a credit to this industry. Thanks for turning our team around!

Rosie Shares..

My father was a Ukranian migrant who worked very hard all his life and we often had challenged debates as I was growing up and he’d comment “you always have to have the last word, don’t you ever shut up?”… so it was important to show him what my word became worth after the first big paying gig, I handed my father ( who was then alive) the cheque for $4000 and told him that’s 45 minutes work Dad.
Ironic how ignoring his well-meaning advice led to my success. His response:

What the hell are you doing here! Get back out there and keep talking!
