As a speaker, Terry’s informative, memorable & energising presentations to business, professional & community groups receive rave reviews. Terry's style is interactive, with the use of entertainment to keep the sessions flowing and memorable, holding your audience's concentration and improve their recall of key information.

As a trainer, Terry specialises in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for businesses that are serious about improving the performance of their people and increasing their influence. As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, he often finds himself drawing on his own extensive business experience.

As an MC, you can trust Terry to drive your conference, event or team gathering towards your goals, reinforcing your messages and facilitating networking. Terry can present and MC and provide evening comedy entertainment. With that rare mix of an extensive business background as well as comedy ‘chops’, he can tweak his performance to suit any occasion - from hosting V8 races to facilitating networking amongst a collegial bunch of professionals in-between drinks to running hilarious gameshows for international wine tasters to conducting academic panels to introducing Cabinet Ministers at formal functions and so much more.
