Greg Ure - AHRI

 

 I had the pleasure of attending a recent corporate Roadshow across Australia and Stu Atkins was the first speaker. He delivered a 45 minute presentation on Disruption to large audiences and to say I was impressed is an understatement. Stu is engaging and entertaining and tells a story rather than simply delivering content. He had the audience completely focussed from the outset and balanced the presentation with facts, story telling and humorous exercises which were all perfectly executed. Stu is a well rounded Speaker and one I would recommend without hesitation.

Informative, engaging and at times somewhat confronting! As one of our keynote speakers at the Eview Group PB2016 National Conference, Stuart delivered an energy packed presentation filled with quality information and humour. Stu’s likeable character and presenting style connected instantly with the audience; we have no hesitation in recommending Stu for future industry events.
