Testimonials

Lachie’s presentation was very engaging, at times humorous, and the images of his amazing journey is something I will remember. His attitude and achievements to date show that no matter what hurdles lie ahead that the sky is the limit. Lachie is a brilliant man who has already achieved so much in life and someone who will continue to do so. I found him to be an inspiration not only to myself but to the entire audience.

Riveted! That be the one term that best explains the response from the South Burnett Country Fair audience, listening to Lachie Smart present his adventures around the world. Amazed, is how to best describe the audience after his presentation. I couldn't recommend Lachie enough as a most amazing motivational speaker that will certainly inspire.
