When you invite someone to share their experiences, the connection to your people and your business is vital.
For both of us, it was vital values aligned and Dominic McGregor was happy to be open and honest about the way he worked, spent time getting to know us and our need, to know who we are, and to tailor his experiences to challenge us to think differently.
On the day, he took time with our people and could not have been more personable and approachable.
We would not hesitate to recommend working with him.

Hi Dominic, I just wanted to send you a quick note. The panel discussion you were on was hands down, the best, most honest and genuine panels I have seen. Both Dan and I commented after how fantastic it was. Chatting to you in person afterwards reinforced my view of you on the panel as being genuine and honest about the state of affairs currently.
Michael Heverin from Supplywell
Genuinely, yesterday’s panel was one of the best I’ve experience, and we’ve had a lot of feedback saying exactly the same. The honesty, bluntness and past experiences really resonated with the audience, and it was incredibly refreshing. A huge thank you from Chris, Penny and I.
