Damian spoke really well and effectively to our students. He used his experiences to challenge students to achieve their best and gave them ideas as to how to achieve them. Clearly, this reinforced many messages the students receive from their teachers etc. He spoke in a language that was meaningful to our students. I spoke to Damian prior to him coming and he more than filled our expectations of him.
