Western Earthmoving Pty Ltd

Kieren was above expectation - extremely professional, friendly and courteous, and made himself available to mix with delegates afterwards. He spoke about his experiences, and related them easily to the layman and business person alike. Very articulate. Delegates commented without solicitation on how they believe Kieren was the best they had heard.
