Chandler spoke at our annual Australia-wide company gathering. My employees embraced his motivational speech and he provided our group with concepts that will assist us in a challenging business environment. Chandler was really accommodating and took the time afterwards to answer questions, socialise and inquire about how our business works. He was outstanding and I will be getting him back to speak again.
