I just wanted to tell you how much I and my 90 Property Mastermind attendees appreciated your presentation last Saturday. Your mixture of motivation, excitement and, dare I say, rush of patriotism, had us all captive.. The way you related the principles of success at the elite sports level to success in business is relevant to us all. When I was sourcing a presenter I knew it would be difficult. I was looking for the characteristics of a high sports person, motivational speaker, a segway from sport to business and to make it almost impossible, a connection to real estate. Then bingo, I hit the jackpot - all of it in one speaker!
