 What Her Audiences Are Saying:

"You were simply amazing at the Author Series event last Thursday. I have had so many great comments about you and your powerful message. The event was, hands down, the best one we have presented. You and Eric (a Youth Villages student) made a tremendous team." (Mary Norman, Director of Community Relations, Youth Villages)

"It made me realize that Presidents and CEOs of our companies sometimes lack the emotional intelligence to connect and motivate our future leaders. They (youth) have such drive, and skills that are somewhat different than the generations before them. Helping business leaders prepare and change the environment to handle the new onslaught of our workforce could be a great opportunity for you." (Rick Crain, Action Coach)

 "I laughed, I cried….. I wished I had as much drive, determination and courage to perform my daily tasks in life and deal as well with change." (Comment from an audience member)

"I know in my heart that my worst day…well, it just does not exist anymore since I met Fiona and heard how she overcame such an obstacle in her life with flying colors." (Conference participant)

"We are amazed at how Fiona uses her inability to see and turns it into an enhancement instead of a handicap." (Comment from an educator)

"Fiona Page did a wonderful job about her life in a talk here at Riverplace. Becoming suddenly blind and facing this in a courageous, determined and faithful manner gave glory to the Source of all good and is an inspiration to all of us." (Bob Clayton, Resident at Riverplace)

"Norcross UMC found your keynote, Embracing Change: the Path of Prayer, most inspiring for our women’s ministries.  385 women attended. One of the poignant comments came from a woman attending who was experiencing divorce after 30 years of marriage. She said that she needed to hear Fiona! It was a great blessing for her to be there. Another lady had told me that she had invited a friend that also was going blind. I don’t know the details. My step-daughter Brooke said that she realized that with all she was going through that it seemed small now and after hearing Fiona, she could face whatever she had to. Fiona, we have had fantastic speakers before but I can’t remember such a tremendous response. I have had woman after woman come up to me and tell me how awesome the speaker was at the women’s dinner! Fiona, you are loved at Norcross First! Thank you for all you do and God Bless you, (Cathy Thompson, Co-chair Women’s Ministry, NFUMC)

"Your keynote speech was inspiring and uplifting for the 250 participants and nearly 50 Volunteers. The workshop session you held for participants and providers on advocacy were extremely well-received. You are a pleasure to work with. The entire conference enjoyed your presence. Thanks again and we hope to work together in the future!" (Laurie Simon, Coordinator Bregman Conference 2013)

"You can't depend on your vision when your imagination is out of focus." --Mark Twain
