Client Comments for Helen Dalley
Helen Dalley travels from New South Wales Australia
- I would like to thank you for your participation at the Tax Office's Senior Executive Conference we held in April 2007. Your Master of Ceremonies style was professional, intelligent and engaging and was a major influence on the overall success of the conference.
The conference was very successful and there have been many positive comments from participants about the high standard of the guest speakers. Your contribution helped us achieve the purpose of the conference, which was to discover and think about the future of the tax system and administration and to build a stronger sense of community among the Tax Office's senior leaders.

- I thought Helen was very personable and her presentation very well modulated etc. She could have probably focussed on say 5 people that she interviewed and gone into greater depth on each person, rather than cover 20 or so personalities. Apart from that she was terrific.
