Client Comments for Norman Swan
Norman Swan travels from New South Wales Australia
- Delegates were very impressed with Norman's presentation skills as much as what he had to say... just a great communicator. He refreshed them with his knowledge and presentation style.
- We were very impressed with Norman's role as facilitator at our Indigenous Health Workforce Policy Forum and received nothing but positive feedback about him. We felt Norman really added to the level of discussion and set a tone that was both probing and challenging - but also respectful. Dr Kim Webber and I also appreciated the contribution Norman made in planning for the event and developing the agenda.

"I dream of a company where people come to work every day in a rush to try something they woke up thinking about the night before. We want them to go home from work wanting to talk about what they did that day, rather than trying to forget it. We want factories where the whistle blows and everybody wonders where the time went, and then somebody suddenly wonders aloud why we need a whistle. We want a company where people find a better way, everyday, of doing things, and where by shaping their own work experience, they make their lives better and their company the best."
Jack Welch, CEO, General Electric.
