“Earlier this year, Ashleigh Brennan came to BTYC Gymnastics and delivered an amazing presentation to a large group of our competitive squad athletes from a variety of programs – Men’s Artistic Gymnastics, Women’s Artistic Gymnastics & Gymstar athletes.  She covered a variety of topics that were of significant relevance to the athletes in attendance, including resilience and persistence, how to get the most out of their training and how to set appropriate goals for training.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience listening to her speak about the triumphs and set back’s she faced throughout her long and successful career.


Both the athletes and parents in attendance very much enjoyed the presentation and felt as though Ash spoke directly to them all.  The way in which she was able to target the information to athletes currently working through some of the same issues she faced was very powerful.


Ashleigh conducted herself in a highly professional manner, and it is with utmost respect that we would recommend her as a presenter to young and upcoming gymnasts.  We have invited Ashleigh back to speak at our Annual Awards night later this year, where she will present further on some alternate topics.”

“The Rotary Club of Glen Eira recently held a special evening to present sport scholarships to a number of sporting groups in our community to assist promising juniors who may be having difficulties in funding their participation  in sport. Our guest speaker on the night, given the sporting flavours, was top international Gymnast Ashleigh Brennan. Ashleigh gave an inspiring presentation covering her experiences from the time she took up the sport of gymnastics to her Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games and World Championships experience. Ashleigh demonstrated in her presentation how with a strong will and desire you can overcome set backs and injury that would have made many others retire at the top of competitive sport. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ashleigh to any club or organisation as a guest speaker.”
