Testimonials for Richard Stubbs
Your observant comments on each of the speakers helped to frame the sessions and kept the morning moving at a snappy pace—a result that was appreciated by both the audience and the organisers. Your comments were particularly relevant, showing a good grasp of many areas in education.
As MC for our recent launch of Telstra's Wireplay Computer Games Network Richard, in a nutshell, was fantastic and pivotal in making the launch a huge success. Apart from being a seasoned professional and a pleasure to work with, his humour, attitude and performance on the day really made the launch come to life!

All I can say is thank god we had Richard Stubbs at the Occupational Health and Safety Awards, because he saved the night. In between a power failure that stopped the audio visual presentation for about five minutes and a drunk attendee who decided she didn't like the awards Richard's sense of humour and quick wit helped turn a potential disaster into what ended up being the highlight of the night!
