- Tony Falkenstein, CEO, Just Water International

Wade Jackson is an outstanding presenter. He has relevant, fresh, interesting thinking that speaks to the zeitgeist and supports this with great, compelling research and sound thinking. I have seen only a few people, in my 30 year career, who can energise, entertain, inform and illuminate very busy groups of people in the way that Wade can.
- Chris Till, CEO, Human Resources Institute of New Zealand

Wade is one of the most energetic and dynamic speakers I have worked with. He has an uncanny capacity to use his humour in both a moving and poignant way whilst also just being funny. He connects well with his audience and his funny demeanour belies his perceptive insight. He has the capacity to quickly call in clear but meaningful psychological models that create insight and power. Wade has the capacity to subtly remove the veneer and protection that can sometimes stop people being vulnerable enough to really learn. I am yet to be involved with a group that has not loved Wade, its hard not to! I can strongly recommend Wade as a speaker across a broad range of audiences especially in a business setting.
