I would have no hesitation in recommending Character Builders consultancy. The workshops are engaging, informative, creative and entertaining. Our students love working with Character Builders.
~ Michelle O’Brien, Manager, Student Transition and Leadership Team, Griffith University

Character Builders was the answer we needed in pulling together a strategy for the transition of 500 new high school students in their initial stages of study with the Southbank Tertiary Entrance Program.
Damon was contracted by our team at Southbank Institute of Technology to pull together an orientation for a unique group of students needing a greater preparation for tertiary studies. From concept to delivery I knew we were in the hands of an expert who understood the needs of our organisation alongside those of our students. His outstanding interpersonal skills and expertise within school and tertiary education sectors, delivered a memorable and meaningful experience for all staff and students involved. I look forward to the opportunity of working with him again in the future.
~ Alicia Bettles Program Coordinator – Vocational and Higher Education, now QUT

Character Builders designed and taught a two day program that prepared a cohort of pre-service primary teachers to teach Heath and Physical Education at QUT. The program was extremely successful and the students learnt valuable skills such as: inclusive strategies for encouraging all students to work in groups; games that include all students; and positive role modelling for building students’ self-esteem. This program has been regarded as one of the highlights of the year for these students
~ Donna King, Senior Lecturer, QUT

As a past student at Griffith University I have had many opportunities to participate in Character Builders Workshops and Experiences. I would strongly recommend Character Builders programs for any student looking to develop their interpersonal skills and overall career aspirations.
