Jared Davis - Megawood Larson-Juhla Berkshire Hathaway Company

Chris Harty - Australian Institute of Architects

"Your relaxed yet confident delivery style reflected your deep knowledge of the subject matter and reinforced messages on how our members can achieve the "Five Pillars of Business Success". You have provided them valuable material to reflect on and we have received very favourable feedback about the event and your presentation. We look forward to inviting you back at some future time."

Giselle Grynbaum - Building Designers Association

LaineBrideson - Engineers Australia

"The session was well received and certainly inspired our members to apply a new approach to their business model and will assist them in identifying opportunities for success"

Jeff Stevens - Australian Institute of Conveyancers

"Greg was able to clearly and concisely show our members how to calculate their hourly worth. This flowed well into the rest of our event. I would highly recommend Greg to other organisations."

Mick Alexander - Southern Cross Broker Network

"The session was enlightening, invigorating and logical. The quality of the information was excellent with a simple explanation of the key processes to plan for business success. I know a few of the stories resonated with the audience as demonstrated by the motivation to go forward. Definitely a must for all small business owners."

Fiona Young - Squash Vic

"Greg is an excellent presenter, he is extremely organised and his presentations are clear and easy to follow. Despite having to lecture undergraduate architecture students, Greg was able to engage with them directly with both his content and style. Moreover, his sense of timing and pacing of each lecture has been impeccable. A number of students remarked afterwards how relevant his perspective was to their business activities outside the university. For the above reasons I would recommend Greg as a speaker in any forum and I would certainly endeavour to use his services again."
