Testimonials

“He was very accommodating to move his session to an earlier time slot due to last minute circumstances. He’s a wealth of knowledge and has been happy to share his knowledge, contacts and ideas from the outset and has gone over and above to ensure our event was a success. His actual presentation was executed perfectly, covering the brief, adhering to the time restriction and also allowing for Q&A from the audience too. An absolute pleasure to have Jon as part of our Melbourne LIVE event and would definitely recommend him to anyone in the future.”

“Jon Dee gave the keynote address at our 2016 National Awards dinner. The national awards evening is one of the highlights of our year …. In 2016 we were looking for a future looking inspirational keynote speaker with good communication skills….Jon was the consummate professional working with us in the lead up to the event. This ensured we had a talk fully tailored to our audience. He delivered a fantastic insightful look at where we are heading in our low carbon future. He then related that back with exciting examples researched from around the world. He captured the imagination of the audience from the moment he stepped on to the stage. The combination of Jon’s natural presentation style and high quality multimedia presentation went down very well with our audience of over 250 industry professionals. The audience really appreciated Jon’s keynote presentation and our members still talk about the event and aspects of the presentation.”

“From the feedback from the participants at conference, they rated his presentation as excellent and informative.  I would also like to comment that Jon remained for lunch and spoke to many participants; this was appreciated by all  who had the opportunity to speak with him. In respect of his presentation, Jon had obviously done his “homework” on Rotary which was evident in his address.”
