“Your very personal contribution was highly valued, and I, for one, was
quite moved by what you had to say. Your description of the potential for
change in the attitudes of staff too, was welcome and pointed out exactly
the type of synergy that we are hoping to achieve”
“Thank you for your presentation at last week's workshop. As I am sure
you will be aware, our participants were totally engaged, both with the
feeling you brought to it, and with the activities you described.”
Dr Michael Liffman Director

“I heard your excellent talk about success and focus in adversity and how
you make your business work for you and your family. You have been able to
successfully structure much of your time as well as financial resources
into areas of health development and support issues. I was extremely touched
by your story of strength.”
“Thank you for you involvement in the success of the recent conference.
Your presentation to the conference definitely furthered the objective by analysing
the strategic and practical realities of sustainability with your organisation.
There has been very positive feedback from the student and faculty body.”

“On behalf of Linfox, I would like to thank you for speaking at our Senior Leadership
Conference in May. While at times very emotional, your story highlighted
the need for persistence and courage which is a timely message for our people
in senior leadership roles. Without these qualities the path to achieving our goals
can become long and treacherous.”
