Tanya Corrie Director – Policy, Strategy & Communications | Safe Steps Family Violence Response CentreFarah strikes such a perfect mix of genuineness and professionalism that has provided the perfect tone for our events and any engagement we have had. Always very prepared and across her brief but equally human, cannot recommend Farah highly enough.
They arrived. They were wrapped in beautiful, thoughtful wrapping, with a hand written note. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. I had high expectations, they did not let me down. They are gorgeous, thick luxurious card, with colours and images that pop and because the card feels so thick, it feels solid, and this translates into the words that are spread lovingly across every single card. I can see the love and glitter that has gone into these beauties. I was so excited, I shared it with those at my networking function today, forty women who all need to hear the message “I am worthy” over and over again, in the hope that those words seep through to each woman’s heart and her self belief grows. These cards are powerful. They are the images of women, with unique characteristics, women who are strong or brave or fierce. Women that feel like you and me. There are 32 women to sift through in the pack. What a gift to myself and what a gift to anyone who also gets their hands on them. Just beautiful. Farah, I can see you through all of the cards, your soul shining through each card. Thank you for creating such a beautiful product with a meaning that will stay with people long after they put the card back in the deck.Emma McQueen | Business Coach
Farah was great from the moment you put us in contact. Very prompt in her replies, friendly and professional. She was easy to talk to, accommodated all my needs and requests – Just great. She text and emailed me all the way through the lead up to the event, she attended our rehearsal and she was well on time on the night.
She dressed appropriately for my theme and she was so professional and fun throughout her MC duties. Great speaker – very confident and natural. When we sat for dinner she was friendly with everyone at the table, she came and spoke to me to make sure I was ready to go each time we resumed after food….I honestly can’t rate her high enough. And I am extremely grateful to you for putting us into contact and for suggesting her as my MC. Thank you!Jessica Tatt | HSEQ
Farah – where to begin?
Being able to have you as a guests speaker in Perth for the International Women’s Day event for all Marriott International Perth Hotels was an absolute highlight!
Surrounded by the beauty of the Ritz-Carlton, with a pink chocolate fountain and the beautiful table settings with the sparkly, divine affirmation cards of the Self-Worth Movement, just added to the special atmosphere.
Farah’s personal story and experience was extremely moving and many of us felt incredibly inspired and motivated afterwards. The affirmation cards are very unique with their exquisite velvet-touch, and are such a powerful tool for future growth and self-believe.
I could go on and on, but experience it for yourself – you will not be disappointed!Vera Ostermann | The Westin Perth (Marriott International)
Farah, your empowering speech will stay with me for a very long time. In a time where women’s voices need to be heard more than ever, your story will be something I will forever remember. As a new mother, hearing how you ‘keep your cup full,’ and everything else, was just inspirational! Thank you so much for visiting, and we hope our paths cross again.Danielle Garrigan | Director of Sales & Marketing Aloft Perth - Marriott International
I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Farah Mak from The Self-Worth Movement at our Marriott International Women’s Day event at The Ritz Carlton Perth. What an empowering, energising experience! It was so lovely to hear from a strong business leader on the importance of self-care and self-worth. I highly recommend the course and keynote speech by Farah for all women, and young girls tooElise Anastas | Marketing Communications Manager - The Westin Perth
From the moment you meet Farah, it’s not hard to be absorbed into her world of glitter, self-worth and positivity. But don’t be fooled by just the sparkle, pretty pinks, and fabulous clothes… this woman means business, and is here to change the game and knows it isn’t always rainbow’s and sparkle.
Farah speaks with passion, knowledge, evidence and inspiration and was able to enthral an entire audience of women from a range of generations at a recent Ferrari Melbourne Ladies Luncheon about finding “you” and helping women to feel empowered and gain stronger self-worth in their lives.
Farah is well educated and speaks with grace, patience and understanding and was able to tailor her content to her audience exceptionally. Farah was easy to work with, nothing was an issue and was able to problem solve of find creative outcomes for all elements of the event.
As a young woman myself, I immediately found Farah inspiring and wanted to know more about her journey. Farah’s energy is contagious, and she speaks to everyone, from my personal experience, as if they are an old friend and with respect and compassion. After spending 10 minutes with Farah you truly believe you can take on the world… with one Fendi foot in front of the other at a time. I greatly look forward to working with Farah for years to come.Isabella Kerr | Marketing Manager, Ferrari

In my business, I have to recognize unique and special talent. I believe Farah to have these necessary qualities. Farah shines in her screen presence, withholds an almost magnetic quality on film, plays with depth and emotional truth, a likable quality that really resonates with her audience. Farah already has a good body of work behind her, having been an actress and presenter on Australian long form drama, theatre and television marketer since a very young woman.David Lightfoot – Producer
As a Director, there are many elements I look for in an actor, but non-negotiable prerequisites, are craft and professionalism. With great control and understanding of her craft, and the professional disposition to back it up, Farah represents the best class of actor a director could wish to work with. Dedicated and disciplined, Farah always brings her A-game, throwing herself deeply into each of her diverse range of characters. Her commitment, and desire to always achieve her best, is not only admirable, but also makes the job a lot easier for all those around her.Kelly Dolen – Director
