A quick note to say thank you very much for organising and running the leadership Express workshop last Friday. I got a lot out of it and look forward to introducing some of your ideas at work.
I really enjoyed the day, met some lovely people and was impressed with the energy in the room. The way you were able to involve all of the participants and initiate the sharing of ideas and experiences was first class.
I also liked how you allowed sufficient breaks for everyone to attend to any emails etc. The catering was delicious. Now it’s time to meditate.

 I would strongly recommend Steve Herzberg and the NRG team when considering a conference MC or development training for your business, your team or yourself.

Steve has been our conference MC since 2015. He has also delivered engaging, entertaining and relevant leadership key notes at our conferences.

 He brings to the table the perfect blend of experience and exposure to real world contemporary situations . This gives him a balanced strategic understanding of the opportunities and challenges businesses face in the Australian market today. 

Steve is a very skilled and engaging communicator. He knows how to successfully build relationships and communicate effectively with people across all ages, genders and cultures. 

Finally, Steve has always displayed a bias for action. He is clearly focussed on the highly professional delivery of his material. The outcomes we have achieved with Steve always exceed expectations. Aria Technologies would welcome the opportunity to work with Steve in the future.

I have worked closely with Steve for 10 years both as a presenter and as a business owner. He is a highly infectious individual who specialises in getting the most out of individuals. Personally, Steve has helped mentor me as a presenter and assisted me to be recognised as one of the leading technical presenters in the Microsoft community. He has also assisted, developed and grown our consulting and sales teams by enabling them with the confidence to deal with various scenarios. This has been measurable in their improved performance and ongoing customer satisfaction. Steve truly knows how to develop individuals and teams by enabling them to perform at their peak.
