Michelle Bowden Enterprises

"It doesn't matter how good your message is if no one is listening," says Michelle Bowden, Author, Certified Speaking Professional, Corporate Trainer, a nomination for the 2009 Educator Award for Excellence and an expert in Advanced Presentation and Influencing Skills.

In 2009 Michelle kindly donated a place in her Influential Presentation Skills Course to the Foundation's Chairman, Carol Langsford.

Michelle has continued her very generous support of the Trish Foundation. She was chosen to participate in the national Australian Institute of Management Great Debate in Canberra and very kindly selected the Trish Foundation as her chosen charity, raising significant funds for our research. Over 1,000 people were in the audience and awareness of our cause was priceless.

More support from the other side of the world – Joseph Kennedy

UK resident Joseph Kennedy sent an email to the Trish Foundation saying his best friend had recently found out that he has MS. He said when the news had sunk in he decided, along with some friends, to run the Snowdonia Marathon for an MS charity of his friend’s choice.

Of all the charities on the world-wide web, Joseph’s friend chose ‘Trish’. An online sponsorship page was set up and donations to the Foundation came in at a rapid rate, Joe raising $5,683 for our research.


An Exceptional Young Australian

A very big thank you to Tanya Ponggun for your very unselfish gesture in asking for donations to the Trish Foundation instead of presents for your 13th birthday, raising almost $1,000 for our research. Thank you also to Tanya’s friends for their generous support. Tanya attends MLC School and her parents, Tep and Titima who own Buddha Raksa Thai Restaurant at Enfield are also generous supporters of the Foundation. Outstanding support from an exceptional young Australian.

Generous Support

Richard Batterley is best known for his strong Australian rural and urban landscapes, as well as his continued involvement in casual and photojournalistic portrait work – his combination of black and white shots, incorporating spot colour have also gained him wide recognition.

The Trish Foundation is very grateful to this very talented photographer for dedicating the opening of his ‘Captured Lights Collection of Photographs’ Exhibition to the Trish Foundation, raising funds and great awareness of our cause.
