"Bettina speaks with passion and knows her subject matter. Her remarkable feat of having written and published her book in just six months is a testament to her drive and dedication. Bettina is generous in sharing her knowledge."

Judith Briggs

Vice President, The Colour Society of Australia

“What a clear, concise, informative and entertaining account you gave us of your journey into producing your book and self-publishing. You made it sound so easy and, best of all, it was inspiring, amusing and light of spirit. The details of your journey from Germany to Australia was colourful, and what followed I am sure will help others to feel they can do the same.

Such an excellent choice for the launch venue too. They were such a nice team. It really did support your vision and enabled you to illustrate your message with ease - we were most impressed with your choice of the demo corner. Thank you for inviting me to launch the book for you. You deserve every success.”

"As a member of the Colour Society of NSW, I have had the pleasure of listening to Bettina present to that group. Bettina's presentation was interesting and engaging. She speaks on personal experiences, which negates the need for notes or pauses. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone who requires an "easy to listen to" speaker for their gatherings."
