Testimonials

Mandy Johnson spoke at our Leadership Conference in Melbourne in July 2014. During her session you could almost hear the sound of multiple pens on paper with so many people taking notes. Mandy was one of the best speakers at the conference, as rated by our audience - real estate business owners and managers…. I believe that Mandy is an asset to any conference, and to every business to which she consults.
- CEO Pittard Training Group

Mandy’s message has always been relevant, to the point and hits the target…she is an engaging presenter whose impact has been referred to within our organization, in some cases, many years after her presentations.
- CEO Ray White Commercial

We have engaged many speakers and involved our branch managers & sales staff in challenging team building activities for our previous conferences. However, the feedback from Mandy’s presentation has been extraordinary. Our staff found they were able to immediately apply the learnings in their business and feedback has been that they believe they will make a real difference to their bottom line results this year
