Testimonials for Dr Michael Carr-Gregg

Michael was humorous, inspirational and relevant to every teacher at the conference. He gave an entertaining seminar which made us laugh, cry and see the relevance and importance of being great teachers to our students. Michael was happy to chat informally with individuals at the break times and everyone came away extremely positive and prepared to face the demands of their job. Michael was able to connect with the audience so well, I felt that I'd known him for years. He is such a talent.

Michael Carr-Gregg was outstanding! Keeping the attention of 16 and 17 year old boys can be hard but he has a gift which keeps them spellbound. He entertains and informs adults and teens alike, leaving them talking, discussing and thinking, all of which leads to an increase in and hopefully improvement in all levels of communication. Wesley was positively buzzing after Michael's visit and children and parents have been recounting his anecdotes and comments.

The response to the presentations was overwhelming. Almost every staff member said to me that it was the best professional development they had ever attended. This included staff members that have been teaching for 20 years or more. The staff has also already been asking for Michael to come back next year. I can honestly say that Brisbane State High School has been influenced by Michael and now is a better and more educated place because of your time and expertise.

Michael Carr-Gregg speaks to a subject that affects all parents sooner or later - adolescence. He is obviously well experienced and knowledgeable in the subject, but more than that he brings the subject alive and makes it a memorable event. An essential experience for any parent entering the dark-tunnel of parenting adolescent children.

Michael Carr-Gregg has a balanced approach to delivering his seminars that fully engages his audience. He has a sense of humour, along with some powerful messages. He presented to the same group all day and never lost his audience. In fact, they wished he was about for another day. My parent meeting was also held in high regard and again parents wished they would have had the whole day with him.
