- This conference has been said to have been one of the best ever and your address was considered the highlight of the function.
Water Authorities Conference, Echuca
- Our conference was a great success and much of the credit for making the day so worthwhile was your contribution. There is no doubt that your speech and presentation were the talk of the conference. Should we need a lively economist for future meetings we'll know where to look.
Farming Conference, Birchup (Victoria)
- Neville is by far one of the most interesting and compelling speakers I have heard. He makes the rather drab subject of economics a pleasure to hear and utilises his fantastic wit with consummate ease".
Incentive House, Melbourne
- Our key client convention in Hong Kong was an outstanding success in all respects and we appreciate very much your contribution to our programme.

- Professor Norman was entertaining and engaged the audience well given the difficult subject matter.
Western Australia Municipal Association
- I chose Neville because I judged that he is a part "showman" and it was very important that a discussion about the economic history and future of Australia was entertaining as well as factual. I was correct. No one ever falls asleep in a Neville Norman lecture. He struck the perfect balance between insightful analysis and serious comment and keeping the international audience laughing with his slightly "over the top" presentation style.
