Our Speakers

ReSPIN speakers bring a range of experiences and insights to help communities overcome problem gambling.

Our volunteer community educators have diverse backgrounds and life experiences and have experienced different types of gambling harm (including from the pokies, sports betting, races and casino games). All volunteers receive training and ongoing support to deliver their ReSPIN talks.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss which of our volunteer community educators might be best for your event or activity.

“These community educators have been described as ‘courageous’ and ‘inspiring’ by members of the Clayton community and have moved audiences to tears in their ability to connect emotion and personal real life stories to this complex issue.”

“I loved the ReSPIN speaker’s story. Hearing victim’s stories of addiction and overcoming this to find hope and success is inspirational.”

“I really enjoyed the ReSPIN speaker, it was great that they included someone that had personal experience with a gambling issue.”
