  • Lovely workshop thank you for your sense of humour and humility.

  • “This was one of the best CPA webinars I've attended. Whoever decided to get Dr Helena on to give this seminar to CPAs deserves a reward. Dr Helena was amazing, authentic, captivating, real, lively and gave a good reminder to everyone about the importance of looking after one's body and mental health. Without a healthy brain, we lose the ability to live. Such great meaning to our busy workloads to remember that we also need to take a break and work on our own body. Please get Dr Helena back!” “An excellent session that was very informative helped by the presenter being entertaining and passionate about her subject.” “I thoroughly enjoyed this session. I have already watched it twice and will watch it again. Presenter is such a vibrant and engaging speaker. All very interesting. There were 20 great tips to take on board for everyone no matter what their age. I'm inspired by Dr Popovic and intend to buy her book.” “This was one of the best, if not the best, CPD activity I have attended in over 30 years of membership. Her presentation was excellent and delivered in a manner that was very effective. The content was very helpful. Thank You!!!”

  • We can’t thank Helena enough for her inspiring, educating and entertaining talk (she did not need audio visual as we were captivated by her energy and enthusiasm). So many Probus members have approached me to say she is our best speaker ever and they gained so much from her presentation. I know I did too. I would love to hear her speak again as I am sure she has lots more to tell us. I am currently reading the first of her two books which she had for sale. Please convey our heartfelt thanks to Helena as she has had quite an impact on all of us.

  • Thank you for your great presentation the other night.

    Whilst we have many high quality speakers who know how to present with knowledge and enthusiasm, it is rare that we have someone who takes it to the level that you did. Extremely well done!

  • I loved Helena's presentation - the overwhelming feedback has been very positive. Our Melbourne office have started doing team HIITs, so they have clearly been inspired. I took away a bunch of notes and am still mulling over many of the points raised.

    Helena was extremely professional and I found her both entertaining and informative. It was delightful to be able to chat with her after her presentation.

    Everyone enjoyed the workshop and have taken away various advice for personal growth and well-being, on top of some great trainer tricks we will use with our customers to keep them moving, inspired, and engaged.

  • On behalf of all the members of the Probus Club of Surfers Paradise, I wish to thank you so very much for giving us your valuable time on the 4th April 2017. 

    I cannot tell you just how much we enjoyed your presentation and, I must say, including your dear father in your speech, was a really great idea as half of the members, at least, would be around his age … and you gave us all some wonderful advice in all manners of our daily lives. 

    Several of the members have commented, and I include myself, that we left the meeting happier and full of determination, than we have for a long time. I was pleased to see that your books were being snapped up, too. I shall take advantage of my friendly members and ask to borrow them!!

    Once again, you wonderful girl, our heartfelt thanks for your valuable advice. And I wish you good health and best wishes,

    Esme Bryce Secretary

  • Dear Doctor Popovic,

    I am a big fan. I heard you speak on dementia and you are a very inspiring teacher! You are also brilliant in your ability to see what others have missed. Your knowledge of the brain has broken new ground and has helped so many people. I have put into practice what I have learned from you. My nursing home Residents are happier and living a fuller life, because of you. Thank you! What you have done for your father has been amazing! 

    I know you can now help me understand what I need to learn to be in charge of my own body, in order to attain good health. I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. I can't wait to hear your advice. Congratulations on finishing your new book!

  • I invited Helena Popovic to speak at the recent Sphinxx Ascend Development Day series and received fantastic feedback from the audience on her presentation. Helena wowed participants with her knowledge of physiological wellbeing, peak performance and brain plasticity… and if you’re scratching your head at these terms, don’t worry you will be enlightened by Helena’s presentation. She’s a funny, intelligent and polished speaker and I recommend her to any audience that seeks to perform at its best.

  • Dr Popovic spoke at our recent Staff Conference, Innovate for Excellence, hosting over 400 staff working in the aged care sector. Her presentations were energetic, engaging and resonated with our staff. We continue to receive positive feedback from staff on how they have put into practice her suggestions particularly on how to Boost your Brain. Her stories on the success she has had in supporting her father who is living with dementia were amazing! The information provided has stimulated conversations on how we can use this knowledge across our business. She is by far one of the most inspiring speakers we have ever had!

Thanks for your generosity of spirit,

The Summit was titled: Revolutions, Upheavals, Choices and I am pleased to say that you lived up to the title and caused many to think and “think again”. From my perspective your session added to the breadth and depth of topics required to live up to the marketing promise. Sincere best wishes for much continued success. I also wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.

  • The Executive Committee and members of the Sylvania Probus Club wish to express their appreciation for the highly informative and entertaining presentation you gave to our Club on Thursday, 4th February. At the Club’s Committee meeting earlier this week, it was recorded that your beautifully illustrated presentation together with your so clearly delivered oral description on “how to boost your brain” as the best we have ever had given to members of our Club. It also was delivered with wonderful and entertaining humour. We now all realise that from your talk that in our advancing years we must make every effort to feed our brain in order to prevent us developing neurological disorders such as dementia. You are to be congratulated on one of the finest presentations ever given to members of our Club.
