Let ME Speak

"I attended a seminar and training with Les Brown and his platinum speakers at Westminster Central Hall in London, United Kingdom. The seminar had several great engaging speakers. 
Then something magic happened:  Ms E walked on stage and her heart filled the room. 
I was in awe, I felt as if she was talking to me personally and no one else mattered. 
Others in the room had disappeared and I was fully immersed in the beauty of her words. 
From my heart to yours Evelyn thank you for sharing."  
Deborah Huxton, Positive Parenting Academy, Midlands, UK
"I was deeply touched about your story as I am an ex care leaver who was placed in care at the age of two and five, along with my brother; and I can so clearly identify with a lot of the emotional and personal issues which you talked about.  I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the many children and young people in the care system who are looking for their forever family, for the sacrifice and difference you are making in the lives of youth."
Angela, Former Foster Youth, London, England 
"Evelyn,  I recall your speech & your work with children. Thank you for sharing your  passion. I have been a teacher, and early years specialist for 25 years in London, and solo parent. For me it seems time to dream again...!!!   Aroha (Maori language meaning love)"  
Mili Tekiva Clayton, London, England

 "Although I am a speaker, I’m at a loss for words concerning the shear excitement and appreciation that I have for you. You made my experience in London, a memorable and empowering one. Thanks for having such a huge heart and dedication to your purpose. It shines through in all that you do."

"Evelyn is an engaging speaker who balances intense empathy for children in out-of-home care with her professional insights as a therapist. She spoke to our graduate-level professionals in training about the individual and system challenges of real cases.  Students remembered not only the professional insights but also their own emotional experiences from group activities.  
 I highly recommend Ms. Polk as an inspiring and insightful speaker"
