“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

“I and most of the audience were unsure of what to expect from our guest speaker as he was not known to us and the subject was foreign to many…Well, from the first word to the last he had the attention of the whole room with people hanging off his every word. Dion spoke from the heart and as he did not read from notes it was obvious PTSD and his upbringing and career was something that he (and the whole room by the end of his talk) is very passionate about. He finished to a standing ovation which is something I have not seen from any men’s dinner I have attended, and we have had some brilliant speakers who have been on the circuit for some time. I cannot recommend Dion enough as a guest speaker, he will command the attention of the room with what I personally thought was one of the best speakers I have had the privilege of listening to, and with my role I attend many functions with celebrity speakers. If you are reading this and deciding whether or not to give Dion a shot I would say to you go for it and I promise you he will not disappoint!”
