“Those who attended benefitted from an excellent talk by quite an extraordinary man. Dion spoke of his experiences both in the New Zealand Police, as a combatant and bodyguard in various active war zones around the world and the subsequent pathway his life has taken as a result of those experiences. Throughout, he spoke with a passion seldom heard in presentations these days, yet in a non-threatening, but unquestionably firm, manner; his views on crime and the need to support its victims in particular striking chords with his entire audience.   I found Dion one of the most inspirational speakers I have had the privilege of listening to for many years and the Club will certainly be inviting him to speak to members again in the future.   Consequently, I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to other groups or organizations as an inspiring speaker who will enlighten, motivate and entertain his listeners. “ The Upper Hutt Business Club
