"Witnessing so many of us share similar values and passions to maintain genuine community access re-charged my will to collaborate forever."

"I think the CMTO is worth it's weight in gold, as are the trainers."

- Sherina Winton, 5PBA

"I know this training will be absolutely invaluable for the station. We're expanding our outside broadcast program quite substantially at the moment so it'll be a huge help.
Thank you so much for facilitating this. The CMTO is an absolutely priceless resource so keep up the great work."
- Stephen Stockwell, 4ZZZ Station Manager

"It had been well over 12 months since we’d been able to get groups together at the station so it was wonderful to see enthusiastic peeps, some meeting each other for the first time, enjoying learning more about broadcasting and I look forward to their programs developing with their newly acquired information and skills. Thanks again for a most excellent weekend……gotta love community radio!!!"
– Phil Ruck, 3MDR Station Manager

"I've just started my 2nd year as Station Co-ordinator at 3GCR and was tasked with finding funding avenues, this included Grants and sponsorship. Having never done this before I found the Think Big 2 CMTO course the best thing I have done in the last 12 months"
- Belinda Ritchie, 3GCR

“This course made me feel like I won something big. I learned something I didn't do before - talking on the radio.…when I listened to myself talk on the radio I feel like I can do this and more.”

- NEMBC Multimedia Project with Anita Michalski

"I would like to thank you for having given us this opportunity to learn and develop. It has certainly boosted our enthusiasm for radio presenting and improved our presentation styles"
