I have over 15 years of experience in public speaking and have given presentations to academic audiences and the general public. I love getting out there and talking to a range of people about body image and wellbeing.
I am available for speaking engagements and professional development in lecture, and large or small workshop style.
Please contact me with more details about what you need.
Dr Zali Yager spoke to our Year 10 students with energy, insight and expert knowledge about steroids, supplements and body image. She related to our students who found her humorous, down to earth and approachable. Zali explored the implications for young people today and shared with our senior teaching staff a number of programs that she is developing for use in schools. Zali also spoke with a large audience of parents and teachers in the Greater Geelong region at an event at the end of the day. If you are after someone who is engaging and a local expert in this area , then I can't recommend Zali highly enough!
"The interactive workshop was thought provoking and left me thinking about how I can change my practice to better support the community I work with to achieve positive body image. Zali shared practical analogy’s that made sense of abstract concepts about our perception of body image and body ideals. I highly recommend Zali as a speaker who shares her expertise with ease and invites deep reflection."Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and attendee at DAA Tas Workshop
