“Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! – The extent of just how far Dave Staughton exceeded our expectations cannot be expressed! We are eternally grateful for his massive contribution to the great success of our conference. The guy just seems to know everything and has a unique and thoroughly interesting technique in getting his messages across.

“Best Ever! – Thank you for your presentations, MC work and everything else that you did (and there was heaps!) at the Vow Financial Conference. You were the glue that held it all together and we are extremely appreciative. The feedback from our network has been extremely positive. I believe that you have truly inspired our clients to realise their full potential. Many of our clients, sponsors and brokers are calling it the ‘Best Conference Ever’.”

Marketing Manager - VOW Financial

 

“Better than excellent! – Dave practices what he preaches. There’s no doubt about it. His enthusiasm and comprehensive content motivated both Yokohama Dealers and Staff. Dave’s preparation was amazing. He had 2 meetings with me in the lead-up. He spoke with our dealers in the days prior to his presentations. He checked attended another guest another guest speaker’s presentation on similar content just to make sure his content wouldn’t conflict. He was helpful to my own presentation and future marketing material. He gave 2 presentations that had the whole room interacting and buzzing. Well done Dave.” 

C.T. Hansen – Marketing Manager

 

“You were a huge hit! The audience could just so easily relate to you (a testament to the amount of time and research you put into this group prior to the event, and also just how well you read a room). There was just enough humour to keep them alive and the interaction was great!”

Penny Mitchell – Solterbeck 

 

“A heartfelt thank you for all the effort and work that you went to on behalf of Tyrepower last weekend. Dave, there is no doubt in my mind that your contribution throughout the International Conference in Sydney will be remembered by the delegates and the wider audience for years to come. Plenty of thought provoking ideas combined with actionable outcomes for all.  Thank you for your part in making Sydney the best conference we have had.”
