“Hi Ray, Great presentation!”
Mark da Silva – Director concept marketing


“Ray, Excellent, You delivered ahead of expectation, and your execution was flawless, a true professional. ‘You get it’ having been in business you diligently went about researching your audience and your delivery was clear, concise and accurate. You followed the brief, and your referral to your experience and our business did not sound contrived, as it sometimes does. You jampacked the hour, and everybody was pleased, including our CEO”
Peter Crowe GM Marketing Bidvest


“Ray, The Retailer Experience event was outstanding and the feedback from both external & internal stakeholders has been remarkable - it's by far the most successful event we've held to date.
We commissioned a post event survey where we asked our retailers a number of questions regarding the event, they stated that the guest speakers were their key highlight over anything else.
We also asked to rank overall day session content in terms of enjoyment and relevance to their business - I'm sure you'll be absolutely thrilled to discover that overall your session “Creating Magic Moments” was ranked #2 in terms on enjoyment and #3 in terms of overall relevance to their business - well done!
Many thanks for adapting your content as requested - 'it hit the spot'
We'll be sure to keep in contact for future events.”

Jeff Williams - BAT Head of National Accounts

On a personal level it was great to meet you and I personally took away some great lessons – and you are so right – important to keep having fun!”
Lorie Helliwell - Managing Director Ogilvy Impact


“Hi Ray, Thank you so much for adding value to our Conference. I loved the way you started off your presentation because I guess a large number of members were thinking, oh my god this is heading in the same direction as last year’s presenter. You hit the money on a number of issues. There was never a dull moment and for an hour and forty five minutes you had everyone in the palm of your hands. I do see the possibility of utilising your skills further on a different topic when we next have our annual conference, so please keep in touch”
Michael Elliot - Business Development Manager Sleepmaker Australia

Kristy Heslop - Marketing Executive Beds R Us


“It was a pleasure to spend time with you and hear from someone that has done it as a “regular joe” Your insights were great to listen to and in most cases you've just reinforced to me that I'm heading in the right direction when it comes to people and relationships within business”
Bosh Talarico - Operations Manager IBA


“Just wanted to say thanks, very inspiring and great food for thought and thanks for making me realise the stuff that I should be doing, I will make a point of showing people how much I care”

“Your Overall Grading: 9.999 (we all have room for improvement)
Ray was superb – he took the time to get to know our company and our clients prior to his keynote and tailor his presentation accordingly. He hit a chord with every one of our delighted delegates, he went the ‘extra mile’ in staying for dinner and then for the next day’s business session to meet (and hug) as many of the delegates as possible. He is generous not only with his time but his intellectual property, a room full of very satisfied, invigorated and inspired clients, armed with the tools they need to make a difference to their business. I can’t thanks Ray enough”
KPSS Australia


“I'm sure you have met a million people who thank the living daylights out of you, and I’ll be another one. I saw you at the Goldwell Conference and I won your book by making a paper aeroplane. I am pretty certain you have changed my life and I am so grateful. I am only saddened that I may never see you again and feel the inspiration that you extended at the conference. Your book is awesome, you are awesome, and if I just make one person feel how you made me feel I will be a contented girl. THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH”
Amanda J. Harris

“Ray is a pocket dynamo.  He delivers a powerful, edgy, inspirational message in an absorbing and clever way.  Yet the message is backed with the experiences of his life, the trials and tribulations, the successes and the failures………….just as life is.  The ultimate message he leaves you with is delivered with an honesty not usually seen in this type of forum…..refreshing and positive”
General Manager - Austral Insulation
