Lawrie's presentation at our Melbourne Cup Lunch was extremely well received. Lawrie presents his experiences as a golf professional and converts them into sound fundamentals for business and perhaps even more importantly, for life. The feedback I have received from my colleagues and clients attests to not only a thought-provoking topic but that it was pitched in a manner appropriate for the occasion.
