“Chris Anstey was the best guest speaker in the 17-year history of the Burnie international...Full stop!
We have had some beauties but nothing to match Chris, and that was the feedback from everybody in the room, not the usual “good” or “okay” – this was a new level!
Not only the best speaker but so approachable, so easy to speak to, at the function after the luncheon everyone was still raving about Chris.
It’s hard to explain how someone can slide into a room of unknowns, give everything of himself and win everyone over in such a short period. Chris had some amazing stories to tell – and he is a real story-teller.
He had the audience laughing and gasping throughout, he held them captured and you had the feeling he could have talked forever – and we all would have listened forever!
Talk about a 'WOW' factor, for the entire international event, Chris was it.
There were some pretty hardened punters in the audience, and they were the ones we sounded out for feedback, and they were praise-worthy beyond belief!
Burnie gives Chris a 15 out of 10, he was that good!”
-Danny Clarke – President - Burnie Tennis Club
“Chris spoke at our Operations Launch a room with 200 people with varying roles and backgrounds. He had the room fully engaged from the moment he started with meaningful stories and great takeaways. He was also able to link a number of our organizational values into his message which made his message even more impactful. We would definitely engage Chris again.”
