Testimonials for Dr Richard Harris SC OAM
What an unassuming and amazing Australian! Richard's natural speaking style guided the audience through such an important and stressful situation and had everyone 100% attentive, waiting to hear what was coming next. Despite knowing of his story, to hear directly the decisions and thoughts he and the others went through was incredible.

Dr Richard Harris was a sheer delight to work with. He went over and above to customise his presentation to our audience which certainly did not go unnoticed. The feedback for his session was amazing with phrases such as “humble hero” and “true Australian legend” and being used freely. There was not a dry eye in the house.
