    Best Ever...   About Dr Roger Collins  

“Thanks again for your skilful leadership at our EMT conference last week. There was unanimous agreement that it ranked as the ‘the best ever'.”

Fred Hilmer, CEO, John Fairfax Holdings Ltd

"Just a short note of appreciation for your very significant part of what I believe was the best Unity Conference from a business perspective that we had ever held.

A mark of success is that a week on, your sessions are being talked about not only by those who were fortunate enough to attend but by their colleagues back in the trenches for whom we will give the opportunity to participate in some of the models as they affect the business".

Russell Hewitt
ComputerLand NZ Ltd

"This presentation really got me thinking, I particularly liked the thinking of balancing both leadership and management."
