The IGA Queensland and Northern NSW state conference gathered over 160 independent retail operators in Hobart Tasmania for our annual conference and Retailer of the Year Awards. A challenging event with a special message of celebrating our success along with a number of lifestyle, team building and leadership initiatives to be delivered to this varied crowd.
Bruce was chosen because of his depth of topics, adaptability and knowledge all to be achieved in an environment of fun and entertainment to a group of people who do not favour sitting still for any period of time. Busy hard working people with a range of backgrounds and experience always provide the conference management team with a challenge to achieve the right content, message and delivery. Bruce provided the perfect balance from the start of the day’s breakfast topic of ‘Happy at Home, Happy at Work” and continued through our success message to teambuilding, motivation, focus and leadership sessions. The entire audience were attentive, ready to participate and were having fun from start to finish.
Bruce’s preparation, conference planning participation and contribution were all outstanding including offers of supporting documentation, procedure and scheduling assistance all in a prompt, polite and professional manner. The conference sessions were excellent, and included very positive feedback from the audience supporting the clarity, importance and motivation found from the content and delivery. From a conference management perspective the timing and delivery was perfect, meeting every scheduled time point with exceptional completion and message reinforcement. Bruce’s ability to reference the “Facts of Life” message through personal reflection and family situation completed the message with credibility.
I would be happy to recommend Bruce to any organisation seeking what I now know Bruce can deliver.
