Client testimonials

Martin hit the spot precisely with his keynote at the conference. Not only was he a big hit with the audience but management was also mightily impressed. His interpretation of the brief was spot on, he was a pleasure to deal with, he worked the time slot beautifully and we couldn’t have asked for a better result.

Mental Media

Martin Grunstein presented at our national conference in October 2007 and I can only say the connection between Martin and the group was, and still is, amazing. The presentation was professional, entertaining and informative. Unlike other presenters that hype a group of people whilst on stage then tend to dissipate over time, Martin's presentation reinvigorated our network and he continued to back his presentation with follow up calls and messages to keep me/us focused. From the time we heard Martin's presentation our company and the network have worked closer as a team, firmly focused on simple changes that were literally in front of our noses. These changes were embraced, refined, marketed and enthusiastically supported by the network
