I have known Mary Atkins both personally and admired her professional activities for over 20 years. Personally I have had the pleasure of experiencing her work firsthand when she was the emcee at an event held in the State Library of New South Wales ‘An Audience with Margaret Fulton and Friends” where her abilities shone through.

Mary you were an absolute hit, I had a lot of comments from Members after the meeting. People really warmed to your open, honest manner and most importantly the non-threatening way you delivered your message and addressed the group. Wanda R. Rotary Club Noosa
