  • “That was an awesome talk and I know everyone got a lot out of it. Most lads from our team learnt something. Just passing on my appreciation. I have booked in for a PSA at 8am tomorrow when I get home. Good stuff.”

  • “I just want to share with everyone what a great presentation we had yesterday with the MAN up team about prostate cancer. It was really well received by the Ops team and the spotless Teams. The presenters were fantastic.

    I believe this would be a great presentation for every team member for both SHELL and Spotless.

    Being a prostate cancer survivor at 47 years of age I hope that I can encourage everyone in your teams / villages / offices to contact MANUP and take this presentation to all of our teams as early detection saved my life and I am so lucky!”

  • “This morning you presented to C Crew at Glencore’s Clermont Open Cut mine. As the safety rep for the haulage team I would like to extend you a very big THANK YOU.

    Your presentation was by far one of the best we have ever had here on site being very informative, down to earth and able to really connect with all crew members. For any presentation to keep the crew talking about the topic all day, especially this topic, is no small feat.”

  • “I just wanted to let you know that the presentation about prostate cancer was greatly appreciated. The presentation dismissed a lot of myths about the disease and highlighted the important things like the PSA test, getting it done every year and creating a baseline to compare your score. It was a very worthwhile presentation”
