Fallon Drewett has always loved the power of words. As a journalist, she dedicated her life to finding connection with others; interviewing hundreds of women and drawing out their knowledge and experience to help share with others.
Over the years she’s met with women who were successful, women who were still learning and women who were truth seekers, just like herself. Some of the women were bold action takers, and others were quietly making ground-breaking waves. All had stories and lessons to share and Fallon knew that the words they spoke, not only expressed their realities, but helped shape them.
During her career, Fallon discovered that passion for writing was less about finding the words, and more about empowering women. She began a blog called “The Just Saying Project” and enlisted the help of other inspiring and fabulous women in the community, running events and projects to help empower, support and guide women to unlock their potential and embrace who they are.
“I believe all women have the right and the ability to let their true souls shine, we just need some help to realise how beautiful we are.”
These projects featured well-known women in the community, as well unknown women, giving power to those who didn’t have an outlet to speak their own truth. Her brave and bold vision for connection, truth and raw beauty, promoted Fallon as a strong and true voice for women, and a sought-after speaker for women’s events.
Not afraid to share the inner workings of her soul, Fallon is a frank speaker, encouraging the raw, honest beauty of life and connecting with her audience on a truly deep level.
Triumphs, fears, loves, strengths and souls. This is Fallon Drewett’s, Just Saying Project.
“I love connecting and being surrounded by like-minded women and these events definitely deliver on this. The content is also right up my alley and I always love to learn and grow. I loved being surrounded by like-minded women and taking in all of the goodness that was spoken about at all the JSP events I have attended (ALL of them!!) I believe JSP events develop self-esteem because the speakers speak from personal experience and it’s nice to know you are not the only one going through these issues. The JSP events and projects are always so uplifting and so you cannot help but to feel better. Fallon is a very relatable speaker who always delivers amazing content that is very relevant to the modern woman. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fallon; in fact she is currently speaking at an event I am currently co-running.”
"Since Fallon established The Just Saying Project in 2015, I have been a keen supporter of her and her work. A self-effacing, talented and creative free spirit whose honesty about her own struggles provides insight and offers hope for many others who may be experiencing the same thing, she brings a refreshing dimension to events for women in the Mackay region offering authenticity, connection and inspiration in a gentle yet compelling way. Creating opportunities for women in the region of all ages and backgrounds to engage with others, find their voice and experience themselves differently through a variety of events is how Fallon is leading the way locally and is, I believe, a rising star and influencer, even though she may not recognise that! I wish her continued success and look forward to what happens next."
“As a professional, Fallon Drewett is a committed, hard-working and truly inspirational person. Her creative event and project ideas, resolute belief in her purpose and thoughtful attention to detail makes her exceptionally fun to work with, and ensures that whatever she chooses to create is of an amazingly high standard. The Just Saying Project is Fallon’s brainchild – an initiative dedicated to engaging, educating and entertaining women from all walks of life and all ages to help them truly accept, love and treasure themselves. A strong collaborator, Fallon is a credit to our community – I can’t wait to see what she will do next!”
“Vibrant, passionate and heartfelt are some of the words I would use to describe Fallon Drewett. Through projects such as 50 Fabulous Faces, Stories From The Sisterhood, Fabulous Figures Exhibition and On Her Lips, she has shaken the souls and pulled at the heart strings of women across Mackay and the Greater Whitsunday Region.
A true icon and role model for body image, justice, respect and human rights, she continues to give a voice to many and inspire greatness in those that have once doubted their true potential.
I have the pleasure of calling Fallon a lifelong friend and collaborator on women-focused events, and can only sing her praises for the positive ripple effect she creates in our community through her speaking engagements, events, exhibitions and projects. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Fallon and The Just Saying Project, thanks to her vision and creativity continuously raising the bar to new awe-inspiring heights.”
"I attended the first event initially as your branding caught my eye, it looked fun yet professional and I felt that it was an event I'd like to checkout. I've been on a self-development journey for a few years now and I loved the idea of attending a local event dedicated to empowerment and leadership for women.
Your events always make me feel connected to other women within our community and reenergised, that I am on the right path but not alone. It's definitely good for my soul being involved in anything JSP!
Fallon is an incredible speaker. She speaks from the heart, is honest, funny and speaks what we all need to hear as women. She also walks the talk, which is what makes her and her programs so relatable. The work that Fallon does through JSP is so relevant.
As women develop self-love and awareness, are inspired to step outside of their comfort zone, have the confidence to follow their passion, be visible, take risks and 100% support and encourage each other, amazing thins happen and the whole community benefits. And this is what JSP is all about. I love what you do Fallon!"
When Fallon asked me to write a testimonial for JSP I was like yes! As a professional photographer I often get asked to work on projects but JSP is something beyond special. Knowing that what I’m doing is helping young women to love themselves and contributing to good mental health is amazing. Setting new standards for society and how we see and think about ourselves is beyond importance. JSP has also helped me immensely in tough times knowing that I am giving to something so worthwhile and something I can be proud of. If you can, I implore you to get on board as you won’t regret it! There is no better feeling than women working together as a team and loving it! I’ve met some outstanding humans along the way too. We have laughed and ugly cried together but all for the sake of positivity and endless love! I can’t possibly thank Fal enough for including me and I’m super excited for many years to come of involvement. When I grow up I hope to be half the woman Fallon is! All the light and love, SarahHearts x”
