Testimonials

Steve Herzberg’s NRG Leadership Express is a great, practical leadership course. The course has been very successful in upskilling and motivating my leadership team. Our key department managers have been easily able to apply the ideas and concepts from the program, helping them to achieve their goals this year with confidence. The group workshops have been terrific for sharing experiences, lifting morale and raising team spirit. The course is clear, concise, relevant and thought provoking. Steve is very inspiring, providing real life examples and practical activities that help anchor the key points from the program. Steve has provided both myself and my leadership team with some excellent tools to further our career development.

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.

During a 21 year career at ANZ as a senior operational manager I worked closely with Steve for more than 10 years, utilising his services as a corporate trainer for my operational management teams. Steve provided energetic and targeted leadership courses which were always well received. If you are looking for your leadership team to develop and grow, I would highly recommend Steve.

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.

Steve was upbeat and kept things moving and interesting. The workshop on Coaching was very professional and a good overall course. David Smiddy, Xylem
Steve’s sales training is a great reminder of the things we know but have packed away. He is energetic, fast moving and has some great yet simple hints to get you going –- the group loved him. He reminded us that we can all sell, just follow the process.
Pat Skalsky, Executive Coach, Altus Q
The Presenting with Confidence course provided by Steve is a great learning experience for anyone looking to improve the way they communicate in front of a large group or even on an individual basis. The course provides both strategic and practical techniques that can be adopted for immediate use. Thanks again Steve for yet another fantastic session!
Jayson Owens, General Manager - Floorcare Australia & NZ, Techtronic Industries Australia Pty Limited
Hi Steve, I just wanted to shoot you a quick email and thank you for the Presentation Skills Workshop you delivered to Tru-Test last month in Caloundra. After you finished I realised that what I was delivering the following morning was not going to cut it – so that night I started from scratch and worked through till 2am. As my presentation was delivering the introduction of a CRM we are rolling out, I knew I only had one chance to get it right and needed all the strength we could muster in getting buy in from the team.

And it was a success.

In my 16 years in sales and marketing I’ve attended quite a lot of training, development and team building presentations along the way – and I would have to say this was by far my favourite and also the one that gave me immediate and quantifiable takeaways from the day.

So many thanks, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!
Neil Silvester, National Marketing & Account Manager, Tru-Test
We worked with Steve to provide a leadership program for key staff. Our aim was to build knowledge, skills and capability around some core topics. The sessions were an interactive workshop format, full of energy helping the group to share experiences and to enhance team cohesion.
It is anticipated that Steve will be included in the future GMA NSW educational programme. The short, practical sessions can be delivered as part of a conference programme and/or in a workshop format for your business.
