Helen presented a compelling and dynamic presentation at our annual convention. Her vitality, enthusiasm and amazing story left the audience of 823 people not only spell bound but inspired and uplifted. In the event survey a few comments were: "Listening to her speak was a life changing experience." "Her enthusiasm and experience was uplifting so that I left the convention knowing that I too can achieve my goals."
The standing ovation was well deserved. The most effective speaker we have heard over many years.

An amazing presentation by an amazing woman. Being the first person to walk the entire length of Death Valley left no doubt that her mantra of "age is no barrier to your dreams and goals" is true. Her down-to-earth approach and her personable link to her audience made this annual meeting the best ever. It was a speech that will be long remembered.
Thank you Helen.
Thank you very much for the amazing keynote presentation you gave at our meeting. To say that you were the highlight of the event was an extreme understatement. Thank you for motivating and inspiring our entire team. Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors.

Thanks for inspiring me to keep going no matter what! I enjoyed your presentation at the Women's Health Expo. Your encouragement about going after what you want to achieve is awesome. Many struggle with the challenges of living and can benefit from hearing your story.

The YWCA has been getting daily comments about Helen Thayer's motivational presentation and how inspiring she was at the Leadership Breakfast. People are still talking about it now two weeks later. Â Many comments about how this was the best Leadership Breakfast yet. People are commenting that they felt inspired to do a little more in their own lives. Helen even inspired one of the businesses that attended to want to schedule Helen for one of their staff meetings. I can't thank you Helen enough for reenergizing the YWCA and our supporters to continue to take one step at a time toward our goals. It will be hard to top Helen at our future events!
I want to thank you for the outstanding presentation you gave at our Health and Human Services retreat. Your program was the high point of the retreat. Everyone I have talked to told me how impressed they were by your presentation and how they were truly inspired by your message. Some even said that listening to you and your awesome accomplishments and bravery was a life changing experience. You are an inspiration to those who think their lives are over at 50.
Thanks again on behalf of myself and the rest of the committee.

It was amazing to hear you speak last night at National Geographic! I purchased your book and am excited to begin reading it tonight. My husband and I have been to the lecture series for I think about 7 years (since it first came to Seattle), and you are surely one of the most wonderful speakers we have heard!
Thank you for the motivation and inspiration you gave me last night at your talk.

Dear Ms Thayer,
During a visit to Chicago I had the pleasure of attending your program for National Geographic with two friends. All I can say is WOW!!! You were terrific. We were motivated to tackle anything. Seriously you were an inspiration and your message is what we need in these days of a difficult world. It's nice to know that my life is not over at 55.
Thank You and Good Luck
Dear Helen Thayer,
I went to last night's National Geographic Live presentation at Benaroya Hall in Seattle and was completely mesmerized and impressed by your talk. Your positive energy is contagious and I'd like to personally thank you for sharing your life and adventures. I know my life will never be the same.
I cannot express how I feel about your presentation this morning to the NSCC employees. Your program and photography were simply outstanding.
Again, my thanks to you. Our world is a better place because of your accomplishments.
