We were lucky enough to have Shane Webcke speak at our annual staff meeting in 2016 and he received one of the highest audience satisfaction ratings of any speaker we’ve had over the past 10 years. Shane has a high energy delivery style and a message that connected with our entire team. This was no mean feat given we have such a broad mix of white collar, blue collar, male and female staff. After his presentation, Shane also spent time chatting with the audience more informally which was extremely well received. Thanks again Shane for helping make our staff meeting so successful.
