Michael, I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank you for speaking at our annual general seminar for all our investors.

I wanted to send you a quick thank you on behalf of the organisation for your presentation this morning. Feedback from our team was impressive that shows your talk was well received, especially at a time when we are a week out from our launch. It put into perspective just how important a total team ethos is within all areas of growth. Your relaxed style, coupled with your experience shared with Australia and now in the business world, was a great way to start our morning. I believe it provided our team important and practical information for them to use in their everyday lives.

We received excellent feedback from our event guests - He gave great insight into his career, the Australian team & cricket overall. He was thoroughly engaging and pitched the answers at the right level (in-depth for those in the know on cricket & stories of interest for those with a lower level of knowledge on cricket).  The guests also appreciated that he took the time to speak with them before and after the main event (Q&A), giving the event a personal touch.  His deliverance was motivational, knowledgeable and added humour for some of the quirkier questions. A pleasure to work with Michael and we hope to work with him again in the future.
