Thank you for doing such an outstanding job as MC at the HR Summit Singapore. Your dedication, preparation and ability to meet our needs were truly outstanding. Unlike so many from your industry, you worked WITH us putting your own needs aside. Throughout the two days of professional presentations you truly controlled the audience and kept them involved. Your efforts ensured all came back from breaks, focused their full attention on each speaker and stayed to the very end. A huge achievement for a two-day event.
- Managing Director, Key Media Singapore

Thank you once again for your gem-loaded mini sales workshop with our team entitled, "The Success Triangle To Outsell Your Competition". Our in house training room was so jam-packed with people that entrance doors were left open so associates could hear what you were covering. Even though there were no more seats inside to sit on, no one left in your 90-minute session with many standing at the back or outside the room in the hallway. Rob, you promised you would deliver with compelling content and on time. You had our associates re thinking and re engineering their selling habits very quickly. This will definitely help them to be more effective salespeople and in that, we will grow to our next goal of four billion in real state sales with our clients.
- President, Dennis Wee Realty Group, Singapore
