“Ray, without over exaggerating or jinxing our best intentions or wishes away, I can honestly say to you, the response from the whole group has been nothing short of amazing today. The positivity and feedback flowing with good wishes and ideas flowing already is & was amazing. At both our senior management meeting and the complete TFN team get together this was for me, when the penny dropped. The energy, the factual reality to your previous life experiences, all reflected where we as TFN have been, and more importantly want to go. It just came through, "loud and clear". Then, most importantly, in a language that "ALL", bar none, truly understood”
Lui Garozzo -Managing Director Total Food Network Australia

“Excellent, I enjoyed his presentation better the 2nd time. I was able to sit back and really listen to all the messages delivered without worrying too much about the ‘performance’ factor. I particularly enjoyed again the ‘whole of life’ messages delivered and that ‘care for people’ is the key determinant of a successful business & life. It has to be! Over the weekend I immediately reprioritized my home goals with my wife to make sure I was on the 20% that really matter”

 “Thank you Ray for making your time available to present to the Master Builders Association Gold Coast members, you captivated and motivated a very tough audience as our members are finding it extremely tough out there and we have had members speaking of catastrophic circumstances and at their lowest point in life, you came along and gave them hope and inspiration. Speaking from real life experiences our members could identify with you and your stories were very topical and hard hitting whilst being uplifting and entertaining - every single person in that room left happier and with a reinvigorated outlook on life. I personally know that you saved a couple of people’s lives that night!! Your presentation was one that many will not forget – thank you!!!”
Master Builders – Gold Coast


“You did a brilliant job of kicking off our managers’ conference. Our theme was “Managing and Building a Better Business” focusing on growing the business by increasing sales and net profit. Ray tailored his presentation to our company’s needs by doing his research, providing relevant information as well as feasible suggestions that the managers could take away with them. Additionally, Ray captivates and engages the group by utilizing his “hands on” experience in the real business world, humor and optimistic outlook in re-affirming our theme message, professional and easy-to-work with”
Director - UES International Pty Ltd


“I enjoyed it both times”  I liked the fast pace as it kept it interesting and kept the audience alive. The key messages that I took home, If you want success, you need to keep trying despite the setbacks. Thank you for your professional attitude after both performances, we appreciated it”
Market Manager  - Community & Irrigation Davey Water Products


“Ray performed well in a difficult semi outdoor environment at the dinner.  He took on board what we wanted to achieve and delivered a good presentation. His presentation was well suited to the atmosphere of the dinner and it left people feeling happy and entertained. Day 2 presentation, its purpose was to offer a teaser to customers as to what to expect from a two day course with Ray. Once again the extreme pace was utilised, many topics were covered and Ray entertained the customers as well as getting some messages through, a couple hit home for me which was great. Overwhelmingly I like the way Ray involved himself in our business, his preparation with customers to experience our business and the type of people who are involved. He learnt from this and included it into the presentation which resonated well with me and my customers. Since the session I have had many customers mention pieces of his presso that they are thinking about in their business and their anticipation of the two day course to get into some detail. His preparation was instrumental in getting this response and it gave him credibility with the audience”
General Manager - EcoSmart Hot Water
