Praise From Our Corporate Clients

Rosanna Library

“Sarah Leung from Healthy Energy was invited to Rosanna Library to conduct a cooking demonstration. We chose Sarah because of her background as a dietitian as well as her experience presenting to diverse groups. All nine people who attended enjoyed the session and expressed their experience as educational, interesting, fun and well presented. Sarah prepared three dishes and discussed the health benefits of the  ingredients used in each.  She engaged the group by asking them to take part in  preparing  the Vietnamese rice paper rolls and incorporated all questions asked by the group into her presentation. Overall this was an enjoyable learning experience for all” – Esther Tomsic-Pavlis, Community Coordinator

St Andrews Parish Primary School

“Healthy Energy was recommended by another organisation when we were looking for a cooking demonstration. The service they provided was great, everything is prepared and organised. The demonstrator explained things and encouraged us to ask questions which was very helpful. I found the session very informative and the demonstrator has a great knowledge on the dishes presented, nutrition and provided us with good ingredients alternatives. I also found the communication very easy, they were true to their words, they follow up and it was a very good experience overall.” – Teresa

“We were inspired to have cooking demonstrations with Healthy Energy as part of our overall Health and Wellbeing program. As part of AMES Health and Wellbeing Program we aimed to inspire and motivate our staff to stay healthy and well, not just for work but for life and this included healthy eating. Sarah delivered a couple of cooking demonstrations across our sites and staff responded to her well – she was a fantastic cook! She was flexible and was able tailor  our menu choices to meet the needs of our multicultural and diverse set of employees. Healthy Energy provided quick and healthy lunches for Work! Great! Great advice, tips and information while cooking too!!! Excellent.

Communication was excellent and the program was tailored to meet our multicultural and a diverse set of employees. She customised a few of the recipes to include halal and vegetarian options.” – Jubie Patrolla, HR Officer

North Richmond Community Health

“We had received WorkHealth funding and were looking for ways to best spend the money. Staff were asked for suggestions and healthy cooking demonstrations were mentioned. During previous WorkHealth checks, participants scored badly in vegetable intake so Healthy Energy Cooking Demonstrations would be very helpful. When I spoke with Sarah she was very helpful and keen, so we decided to go ahead. Our goal was to inform staff of healthy eating options and how they could incorporate vegetables into their diet. I think this goal was achieved. It has been interesting to see barley and quinoa making regular appearances in our lunch room since!
Healthy Energy liaised with us at all stages. Even when Sarah was overseas she still answered my emails. We were very satisfied with the service received. I liked that Sarah answered my queries quickly. Also, she was upfront with cost and there were no hidden extras.

I would recommend Healthy Energy to other workplaces. They responded to queries, returned calls and came well prepared on the day. Sarah presented an informative session that left staff thinking about the foods they ate and keen to incorporate new foods into their diet.” – Natalie Couhlan, Senior HR Advisor

Very good with communication via email and telephone conversations; trustworthy to deliver what they promised; very friendly and respectful towards the other service providers and senior clients; provided a useful and relevant info during the health talk and cooking demonstration; the “Dietitian Cooking Demo” was one of the best features of the Expo – thank you.” – Godette McGregor, HACC Access Worker

Department of Human Services

“You actually brought a lot of fun to the occasion. You really engaged the audience and everyone at the event responded very positively… Learning to read the labels helped people to realize things they previously didn’t…You gave the ‘people a bit more understanding about what they are looking at…So now they know ‘not to be frightened to try new things. I was able to do what you instructed easily. It was all nice and simple. I tried it once, and now I’m doing it again and again. That speaks for itself…You were very passionate. We were excited because you were excited.” – Zoe Pool, People Services Officer
