"During my final year of study as an occupational therapist I attended a multidisciplinary pain management conference facilitated by Hilton. Hilton opened the day with a story and managed both to ground theory in the personal, and to give the whole audience an experience in common at the start of the day. Hilton has an uncanny knack of delivering complicated information in an easy to access manner which is grounded in the acknowledgement that we all have our own story."

"Hilton was a wonderful, supportive GP supervisor and was the reason I chose the Northern Rivers for my GP training. As a Medical Educator, he was innovative and many trainee GP Registrars gained a lot from his writing workshops at training weekends. He used creative starters to get us writing poems and short passages. We all loved that feeling of casting off the shackles of "not being able to write" and actually producing something interesting in a short period. The workshop was also useful as a debrief about stressful clinical scenarios and relationships. I was fortunate to attend another workshop with Hilton, this time in Lennox Head. We were a small group of doctors and we worked together to write a play about a clinical scenario. Once again, it was so liberating, and the script was even published in an international journal!"
