They loved you – the whole event was a success and Fred even sent me a message saying it was the best conference dinner in all his (50) years – so for Fred I think that is something. Thank you again for doing a great job. Great to work with you.

Good Morning Commissioner:

We are back safely ensconced in our Sydney office (still opposite each other the wrong way round) and this is the first opportunity I’ve had to write and thank you for your delivery in Melbourne on Monday evening. The whole evening turned out to be exactly what we had hoped for with a balance of refinement, wit and camaraderie. Your presentation and the sting were terrific and many advisers were still talking about the following morning. Without doubt it worked as we all wanted! Hopefully we will have cause to enjoy each other’s company again, if you are ever wandering around the city looking for a lunch companion let me know I’d love to keep in touch.

(via LinkedIn) You were AMAZING! Thank you so much for joining us today. I get the feeling people will be talking

about your presentation for quite some time. It was the most engaged I’ve seen that audience for a long, long time.

Thanks for a fantastic performance Rodney, everyone enjoyed it immensely!!

It was a pleasure, both working with you and talking with you. You are a consummate professional who I’ll gladly recommend to anyone. The emails from the APJ execs are flying around this morning and are full of complements for you and also for Clive and I for pulling of the big secret. Matt says he will never trust us again (ever).  16 May 2016

We had a fabulous night, we weren’t sure what to expect but our apprehensions went straight out the window once you got up and people started laughing. It truly was an experience to remember.  27 November 2015

Amanda Winton

Product Manager, Ergo Asia

That was excellent, thank you Rodney!!

Well done! Some people said they worked it out with the Casanova joke!

It was indeed great fun and there were lots of laughs from the delegates the following day regarding your presentation!!

Apparently the Veda guy who asked you during the first question “is this presentation going anywhere?” really hadn’t worked out that you were a hoax speaker!  12 November 2015
