"Danny came to Mount Anville Secondary School, to speak to our 5th year cohort as part of our "Minding my Mind week" in October 2018. Danny captured the interest of the students with his engaging, relevant and age appropriate presentation , with a delivery that was charismatic and thought provoking. Danny kept the students mentally engaged by continuously including them in his presentation through questioning or asking for their contribution. The presentation educated students on signs of Mental ill health, coping strategies on how to deal with having off days, advise on how to help a friend/family member who seems to be struggling, and information on where to go for more help if needed. We loved the emphasis Danny put on the importance of physical activity in contributing to overall wellbeing and how closely intertwined physical and mental health are. The students were given practical, easy to remember take home strategies which they can use daily to make sure they are being self aware and taking care of their wellbeing eg Core 4, 5,4,3,2,1 awareness/mindfulness activity. Danny's presentation was not only beneficial for the students but also for the members of staff who attended. I would highly recommend Danny as a keynote speaker for adults, teenagers and children in relation to any physical activity/mental health /well being topic. His passion and love for this topic and people is genuine, which is obvious from the moment he speaks!"
"During remote teaching and learning I approached Daniel to speak with our 6th year art students about wellbeing in the time of Covid-19. Daniel tailored the online talk to our requirements and also offered ideas for areas of discussion.
Daniel engaged our students throughout the online talk by discussing a number of different areas relating to student wellbeing, coping with uncertainty, and general tips for a happy healthy life. Daniel's talk was both informative and engaging; with everyone being encouraged to take part in a physical exercise activity at different stages in talk.
At the end of the talk Daniel spent time answering students questions about their own wellbeing experiences and offered personal advice.
I would highly recommend Daniel Twomey of DTWellbeing to anyone in the education sector looking to support their students wellbeing through these challenging times for all."
“Daniel visited our school in December 2020 as part of our well-being week. We are an all girls secondary school in inner city Dublin and I was apprehensive to how the students would respond to this talk . To say Daniel was amazing is an understatement. The girls were constantly engaged and he had such a wonderful way with the students. He was humble and honest with his speaking and he brought an energy with him that was truly captivating and inspiring. He spoke to the students in a fun and humoured manner and the students will treasure his advice for a long time to come . I would recommend Daniel without hesitation for public speaking. Thanks again Daniel!”
"Daniel visited our school in May 2018 as part of our Mental Health Awareness week. He took the time to speak to all of our year groups (approx. 1200 students) in turn. Each group was captivated by what Daniel had to say. His presentation was engaging, active and extremely relevant to the students, and his enthusiasm, energy and positivity is infectious. Though our week was focused mostly on Mental Health, Daniel showed how caring for our wellbeing overall was the first step to positive mental health. His honesty with regard to his own experiences was inspiring. It really struck a chord with all who heard him speak. He gave genuine, simple advice to students to help them care for their wellbeing. (His ‘Core 4’ is a message which we still use around the school today) He showed them that there is always hope and students of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances left feeling positive and enthusiastic about caring for their wellbeing. When reviewing our week, his visit was frequently mentioned as a highlight. I would highly recommend having Daniel visit your school, business, workplace, event....whatever the case may be! You will be all the better for it!"
"For the last two years, we've invited Dan Twomey to speak to our group of teens at Naas No Name! Club. Dan is energetic, approachable and highly knowledgeable when talking to young people about depression, well-being and building self-confidence. We look forward to his talk each year and our young people have gained a lot from following him on social media thereafter. We consider Dan to be a friend to our club and our young people have fond memories from his talks and often refer back to his statements"
"Daniel was invited to speak at our Cpl Ability Day where he spoke about the struggles of mental health. He educated our audience in a fun, practical and engaging way. There was lots of laughter, great take aways. Nothing But Love."
"Daniel is an excellent speaker and advocate of mental and physical well-being. He was able to engage the crowd and keep interest high throughout the event. He gave some great advice about stress-management, without being too technical and verbose. His story-telling style, made his self-care techniques easy to remember and understand. As a listener I could easily identify with his stories and particularly liked his views about the need for the destigmatisation of mental health issues."
