Understood the brief. Was the right speaker for our workforce at this time. Personable and authentic presentation style.

Richard Hopkins really listened to what we were after and his story really fit in with our event. I was more impressed that he was willing to engage with us more by coming early and sticking around to have a chat with our Managing Director and other staff. He also was able to share his presentation well ahead of the event and adapted with some of the rehearsal times on the day.

Firstly, on behalf of Sophie, Sean and the NSW Health team, we wanted to thank you again for being part of the Module 2 workshop on high performing organisations late last year. After their conversations with you and the other organisations, the participants (incl. Paul and Mathew, who you spoke with) designed their own models of high performance, which they have just trialled for Module 4 Wagga Wagga with the local health teams, in areas that include Aboriginal Health and Mental Health. It’s great to see that real changes are being implemented as a result of this work

Although the world of Formula 1 seems a million miles away for those of us in the corporate sector, Richard effectively demonstrates that leadership, and team building, are key elements of success whatever realm you’re operating in.The business of Formula 1 is after all, a business, and his practical examples combined with enticing insights into the industry, has helped us engage our clients and prospects tremendously.
