Speaking at our recent Sales Partner Conference in Phillip Island, Tim captivated the audience with his witty, involving and informative style of speaking. As a key part of our past 50 year celebration themed event Tim grasped the concepts of our business, embraced them and delivered thought leadership on what the next 50 years may bring. Feedback on Tim from the delegates was superb, “engaging”, “thought provoking”, “inspiring” with key takeaways relating directly to our business. To sum up, thumbs up, “we like you”.
