Inspiration,  inspiration, inspiration. Attending the Scottish Road Safety  Conference, we were so inspired by Angela’s gritty, real presentation  that we knew she had to be a keynote speaker at our own seminar. 


It’s  powerful, not powerpoint, it’s her story, her life and it will move you  to be a better person.

I would like to thanks Angela for delivering a fantastic keynote  session, along with her enthusiastic engagement with staff at our 2019  Physiotherapy Development Day.  


Reflecting on the feedback received from  those who attended, Angela’s presentation was the highlight of the day and an inspiration to  delegates on both a professional and personal level.  Angela’s  positivity towards the Physiotherapy profession made us proud to do the  job we do!

 I would like to thank Angela for the excellent, thought provoking presentation that she delivered at our Young Driver Event “2mro’s  Driver”. 


The S6 pupils listened intently and were definitely affected  by Angela’s experience, hearing how her life has changed after a tragic  incident. The audience were clearly delighted for Angela when she ended  her presentation by sharing how she has overcome adversity. 


I thoroughly enjoyed working with Angela at this event and hope to work with her again in the future.

Inspirational Speaker

It was SUCH a gift to me to have you on stage with me at the retreat  Angela. You were incredible, and I really believe so many women in that  room had a life altering experience simply by hearing about your story. 


I  am so grateful that you came, and I hope it's not the last time we share a stage together.  Your emotion, your passion, and how compelling  your story is are what make you so powerful. 


But you were incredible, and for that time we had together, I wouldn't have changed a thing.

It is a powerful message which will undoubtedly have a positive impact on those who see it.  Well done, you have done more than anyone else I have come across in my career to turn a tragic incident into a positive message.  Keep doing what you do.

This is just a very short note to say a very big thank you for your input to the Seminar. The number of people who have commented on your particular presentation has been overwhelming, with many commenting on how appropriate it had been, in among all the others speakers, it was great to have one who reminded them all ‘why we do what we do’.

Angela  McShane from The REiNVENTiON, herself a survivor of a life changing  road accident gave a very moving and hard hitting account  of how her life had been changed.

We  would like to thank Angela, who gave up their time to come and help us understand the consequences of how certain decisions that we make can  change people’s lives forever.

Keynote Presentation

Thank you for joining us at the Walking Summit. Your contribution was greatly appreciated.  Your story was a stark  reminder of why we need to tackle around traffic in our cities and  towns. The Living Streets Scotland team will certainly be more motivated  to press for the types of changes that were presented.

It was great to have you at the school and would be great to have you back. The general feedback from the pupils was very positive and my feedback is very positive as well. I thought your presentation and delivery were excellent and it really hit home to the pupils about positive choices and making the right decision.

I thought The Reinvention talk was very good. It got the message across and follows on smoothly from the new driver scheme, as that’s passengers that were killed, and The Reinvention is regarding a pedestrian who was seriously injured. 


It also shows aspects of drink/drug driving, which isn't covered in new driver scheme, as its about speed for that.


Both point out the control you have as a driver and as a passenger to be responsible to say stop to the driver for speed/drink/drugs.


Definitely a brilliant assembly, with a hard hitting message from a brilliant/admirable presenter.

It seems, quite some time ago, that I received a ‘slightly nervous’ call from Angela asking if we could meet to discuss how she could support road safety by sharing her story. This was the start of Angela’s journey, and I was so impressed by her courage, enthusiasm and  out-going personality that we agreed to make a short film where she would talk about her experience and how it had changed her life.   


Making the film was very emotional, not only for Angela, but for all involved, but in the end we produced a hard hitting and very emotional film .        


If the Oxford Dictionary wanted to summarise the definition of ‘inspirational’, it would simply read…Angela McShane!
