Our star presenter for our 'e-enabling' series was Debbie Mayo-Smith (and our highest rating speaker). Debbie captured the the minds of thousands of Aukland businesses with her enthusiasm and easy to follow and understand tips for successful e-marketing. She clearly understands what success in e-commerce is, and is more than capable of taking business there.
You delivered the presentations with passion about the subject and have a natural way of engaging the audience. The feedback from both our audience and Telecom representatives has been excellent.
I found your presentation both stimulating and highly informative. You provided a "real world situation" at little or no cost, to what I am sure is a common problem for most SME.
