Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you for your fantastic contribution to our recent GTA National Conference. Your "take" on skills shortage within Australia, through stories on Frosty Le Hood, Fishing, Re-training pensioners and apprentice jockeys, to name but a few, was nothing short of inspirational! Every delegate I have spoken to thought your closing speech was one of the real conference highlights. Thank you again for being such a huge part of our 2005 National Conference.
