Maddie Panther - Young Changemaker


"Maddie is a very passionate and motivated young lady. Her presentation was relevant for our Career Ed classes as Maddie had students involved in activities and thinking about the jobs of the future.

Thank you for organising this visit."


Year 10

Babinda State School


"Maddie was an excellent presenter. She was able to connect with the students and engage them. This was achieved by sharing her personal experiences. The topics discussed were very relevant and the students were able to see links to their own lives and experiences. 

She was very honest and her conversations around meeting and overcoming challenges really resonated with the students. The Jobs of the Future presentation was also very engaging as they had been learning about job pathways in their Careers Program. With all students picking their subjects for Year 11 and 12, this was timely for them to reflect on what were the skills they were going to need to ensure success in the workplace.  This linked well with the discussion around the current challenges in the workplace. The students found the artificial intelligence presentation was extremely informative in relation to the future of the workforce and how it was going to impact their lives. Maddie did a great job and I would not hesitate to have her back to work with our students."

"Excellent presentation from Maddie , 30 mins of talking at beginning set the presentation up for an activity towards the end of presentation. Visuals presented engaging information. Overall students were engaged with the presenter and asked questions when prompted. Feedback from students were very good."
