Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the whole team for your fascinating and inspiring presentation during our sales conference. The feedback from the team was very good as was evident from the number of questions asked. Your presentation showed us what can be achieved if we are prepared to step outside our comfort zone.

I have only heard really good feedback from this event. The general message is that people really enjoyed themselves and I have already overheard conversations in the corridors centred around comfort - stretch and panic zones! Personally I greatly enjoyed meeting Adrian and I admire him for his ability to engage the audience.

WOW! Thanks for making our Eastern Hemisphere gathering memorable and valuable. As discussed in our preliminary meetings our objective was to insure our people went away feeling the day spent with you was a good investment of their time. That goal was certainly accomplished. A number of our senior executives commented that not only was the day interesting and inspiring with tales about your adventures, but it also helped us to identify and begin to come to grips with some issues that may be holding us back. There was a universal agreement that you did not just 'go through the motions' but that you had put a good deal of time into preparing to work with us on our specific issues.
