What people say about Robyn's Seminars:
"Wow what a wonderful workshop - more people and parents need to become informed. THANK YOU! Your message is very positive. OUTSTANDING!" - M Burrows | Lesmurdie
"Robyn, thank you so much for visiting our school to educate us all on the ‘minefield’ which is the internet. I am so glad that both parents and students got to hear you speak Your knowledge and passion for educating about the cyber playground is second to none and even though I don’t ‘get’ the passion – I certainly now ‘get’ what I need to know and do as a responsible parent. My two boys came home buzzing after their seminar – one with countless stories you had shared with them and the other with the utmost respect for a woman who not only knew what an Alienware computer was – but actually owned one !! I love the fact that they can relate to you and even more so that you have opened up a channel of support to them if they ever needed it. Thankyou again, I would without hesitation, highly recommend you to any organisation."
