Dr Swan's presentation was well tailored to our audience, and provided excellent take-away points for future doctors. He is a very confident and knowledgeable speaker about such a broad range of current affairs and was able to integrate these into his discussion of leadership and teamwork. MD Student Conference

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.
