Legacy Club of Adelaide Inc.
Wayne was hilarious and it was a very enjoyable night. We ran way overtime but he didn’t have a problem and was very accommodating. He mingled with guests all night and also assisted with our raffle (without any prior notice) which was fantastic. He also dropped one of our club members home after the event (Barry “Nugget” Rees) which was greatly appreciated! Would have no hesitation in recommending him as a guest speaker for any event, sporting or otherwise.
Kensington District Cricket Club
I found the presentation light hearted and funny. After the presentation, the response from our clients, a number of who were not familiar with cricket was that it was very entertaining and funny. They thoroughly enjoyed the speech.
We found Wayne's dry sense of humour and story telling very entertaining and his lay-back style fits in well with all types of functions.
Wayne was fantastic! He had the room in hysterics - all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed listening to him. I would not hesitate to use Wayne again for one of our events.
Great sense of humour, managed to elicit amazing information out of GPs who wouldn't normally reveal anything about themselves, and thoroughly entertained the audience. Wayne is very personable and relaxed and we really enjoyed and appreciated his contribution to the evening.
Rural Doctors Workforce Agency
