I thought his presentation and MC role at the Australian Leadership Alumni (ALA) Conference was outstanding. He clearly understood the audience and issues. I think he connected with the ALAs and was able to respond to their questions and queries with aplomb. He was confident, skilful and responsive on some very challenging issues. I will be remaining in contact with him and looking for ways to engage him in my leadership work. AusAID
