After hearing Sue speak about Accidental Aid Worker, people said…..
It was a pleasure to have Sue speak at Temora Library. The audience of 20+ people were spellbound, and their level of interest in Sue’s talk was evidenced by the number of questions, and continued discussion after the session had formally ended. – Eileen England, Library Manager, Temora Library
‘What can I say about Sue Liu – what a dynamo! She is an inspiration to everyone she meets.
Sue came into Ulladulla Library on Friday 14th October 2016 like a breath of fresh air. Her talk was thoroughly captivating and inspiring. Everyone that attended the session left with a new commitment to helping others. I highly recommend Sue as both an author and motivator. If you have the opportunity, add Sue to your speaker list. – Vikki Hoskins, Librarian at Shoalhaven Libraries Ulladulla.
I attended Sue’s launch of the 3rd reprint edition of Accidental Aid Worker, before a large audience at Sydney Mechanic School of Arts in September 2016. She was extremely courageous as demonstrated in both her book and at her talk, allowing her peers, colleagues, friends and a number of prominent members of society an inside view of her life and experiences.
Sue’s journey took many unplanned and unexpected twists and turns along the way this forced her into some very tricky situations which required some “on the spot” quick thinking and action to keep her out of harms way literally, emotionally and financially. Her story captured the mind and heart of many people, one of these was Professor Dame Marie Bashir.
Professor Bashir supported Sue’s efforts as demonstrated in her speech at the launch. She spoke of her admiration of Sue’s courage and bravery or not only by detailing her personal journey on paper, but for the work and commitment she put into her “Aid Work”. She also was extremely impressed with Sue’s work and contribution internationally as solo Australian female.
This sentiment was also demonstrated by the famous author Tom Keneally, who was unable to attend the launch and is a support and mentor for Sue, and the attendance of Dr Rabbi Dovid Salvin. – Gail Carmody MBA MM RN
Sue Liu spoke at Mosman Library in October, 2016, about her book, “Accidental Aid Worker”. She was a most personable and relaxed speaker, who engaged her audience immediately with her warm, friendly manner. I think Sue would be an excellent speaker for any group, whether it be school children, a community group, or a writers’ festival. – Jane Roughley, Librarian, Mosman Library
Sue Liu gave an interesting and inspiring talk about her journey to Sri Lanka and her transition from carefree traveller to aid worker, the wonderful people she met along the way, and their lasting effect on her life. The audience loved listening to Sue’s story and we hope she continues to tell it whenever possible. – Robin Sharpe, Shoalhaven Libraries Nowra.
