"Graeme was fantastic and did a wonderful job. The staff loved it."
"We hired Graeme to attend our end of year conference. I can honestly say that he had us in fits of laughter. It was one of the best decisions we'd made as a school. He held the staff captive for the whole presentation and raised the morale & spirits of all our staff. Very funny, very informative and absolutely terrific."
"Thank you for your superb after-dinner address. Your hoax address as a visiting American educationalist was just what our delegates needed after a day spent discussing school accountability issues."
Association of Independent Schools of Queensland
"The creativity keynote was excellent - based on valid De Bono theory. It gave generic solutions that could be adapted to our work. The audience just loved it - plenty of humour with some side-splitting moments - very clever content."
