"We are Australia biggest property marketing group, the Property Club and bring education to property buyers. The problem is that this education covers a multitude of complex areas from estate planning, managing multiple investments through to responding to ever changing legislation. No matter which topic we choose for Rael he is always most obliging in taking on the task. He returns with a fully researched presentation and has the unique skill of reducing a very technical presentation down to simple concepts that are readily absorbed by the audience. Rael has the ability to use minimal but effective power points to achieve this transfer of knowledge. We are very pleased with Rael's results when we survey our members post conference. Rael has one of the highest survey results of "did you get" the presentation. Uniquely Rael loves the open question and answer sessions at the end of his presentations. He revels in the challenge of answering the most difficult of questions and again in a way where the audience say "got that"! We recommend Rael as a most professional presenter with exceptional speaking skills. We have had a long list of well-known economic and property celebrities at our conferences over the last 23 years. Rael continually rates right up there with these speakers."
