The Events Agency
Paul was fantastic at the 2011 Rainmaker Sales & Marketing Symposium, speaking to leading financial services marketing managers on new technologies and consumer behaviour. His views on social media and emerging trends online proved valuable to all our delegates. I recommend following his Twitter feeds to stay in the loop!
Paul is an excellent communicator between clients, contractors and government and has wide experience in media, startups, government, business and enterprise. Most importantly he is an innovator and really knows the IT &T business sector locally and globally. He is always looking to explain new technologies practically and offer advice on state of the art tools to get the best results he can. A great presenter for big audiences to engage them and a pleasure to collaborate with him. I can highly recommend those interested in his work, or potential clients to not hesitate.

At the last ASCCA National Conference Paul was the first keynote speaker of the two day event. He gave it a wonderful start as he introduced our audience, from the newest user of technology to the Minister for Broadband, Communications and Digital Economy, to the theme of the conference with his presentation Reaching Connected Communities. He is extremely popular with our audiences. That is why we keep asking him back!
