Speaking Client Comments


Murray Bain, CEO TSB Bank

"Terry has recently facilitated/MC'd a day long conference of 100 leadership staff for me. The day was extremely successful due in large part to the way Terry carried out his role. He brought a unique blend of energy, humour, and focus utilising his skills as a public speaker and as a practicing comedian, and also his ability to think on his feet. This combination kept our team energised and engaged through the day and he capped it off with an excellent motivational talk that caused us all to reflect, in between the bouts of laughter. I can thoroughly recommend Terry for any event of this kind". 

Nick Bloor, President Entrepreneurs' Organization Brisbane

"Awesome presentation! Loved the content, takeaways, and of course the laughs!!!" 

Susan Doughty & Diane Robinson, RemNet

“Terry is a delight. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious and his presentation hit the perfect note for our conference. He had the audience in the palm of his hand whilst sharing some great insights and nuggets of truth for everyone to take away. I would absolutely recommend Terry as a Key Note speaker”

"Great feedback from delegates regarding your presentation, rating 4.8 for facilitation out of a maximum of 5.0 (which I might add I’ve never seen delegates rate up to!)"

Megan Alexander, GM Robert Half International

"Terry presented in a humorous manner very imperative information for business managers/leaders to use in their workplaces, to influence those people around them. 83% of attendees (senior finance managers) rated Terry as excellent."


Simone Turin, Wex

“WEX are an IT Company who have experienced phenomenal growth and the challenges it presents. Terry presented a seminar on Change, and provided insights into the different personality types that make up the office environment. Presented with more than a touch of humour overlaying a serious message, the office was alive and buzzing afterwards.”



Brett Jeffrey, GM NZ Australasian Society of Association Executives

"Terry was recently the MC at our annual conference in Auckland. Both myself and the audience really enjoyed Terry’s professional high-energy during the day and his enthused humour during the conference dinner. But it’s what the audience didn’t see that sticks in my mind even more, the way he ensures the conference runs smoothly, the speakers are on and in time, and both myself and the audience has a good time. Terry is totally professional, and I totally recommend him."

Obviously the point of this page is self-promotion but usually it's just the one comment per client. This screencap however is from the general comment results of a conference evaluation at which Terry was the opening keynote speaker, and it illustrates why that's an effective place for conference bookers to place him.
