Testimonials

Hello Steve,
Thank you for a lovely day yesterday and for the great comments throughout the day. I wanted also to let you know that you went further than most people did with regards to networking. You gave the attendees time to work out how they could maximize their contacts within the group through informal strategic alliances, and this part of the course was one of the better team learning outcomes I’ve ever seen, and believe me I’ve seen a lot.
The day was very good, the venue was good, the networking and clients there were good, the course was good, your course material and your experiences and the way you related them to the attendees was very good. All these goods have to add up to excellent. So what more can I say than thank you Steve.

As a relative newcomer to small business I was quick to discover the world of networking. However, it was not until I met Steve that I began to gain a deeper understanding of how powerful networking can be. After recently attending his one day workshop on networking, and all its “hidden secrets”, I now feel very confident in approaching people and seeking informal alliances with a range of businesses that I see as providing great opportunities for all concerned. I now constantly put into practice what Steve preaches, and it works. I would thoroughly recommend Steve’s workshop on networking to anyone, new to business or not, who wishes to grow their business effectively and meet great people and new friends on the way. Thanks Steve.

I have had the great pleasure of attending a couple of workshops recently which was conducted by Steve Semmens ‘The Persuader’ one of those courses was ‘How to get paid in thirty days without using a baseball bat’, in a life time you come across a handful of talented people who leave a mark on you, I would have to say that Steve is one of those few talented people. Steve has the ability to facilitate change in peoples behaviours using a number of techniques throughout his course, humour is certainly one of those techniques coupled with his great depth of knowledge and his ability to get his message across to the audience he is communicating to. I would have no hesitation in recommending any of Steve’s courses to anyone that wants to learn new techniques which they can apply both professionally and personally. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally on my mobile.

We recently celebrated our 3rd year in business; around 40 of our top clients and business associates were coming. We wanted to make the night fun and entertaining but above all, we wanted it to run smoothly. I couldn’t recommend Steve highly enough to MC an event; the night went off without a hitch and he thought of all the little things that we hadn’t. I was able to spend the night mingling with clients and I didn’t worry once about the night running to schedule. Both my business partner and myself were surprised at Steve’s versatility and his unique ability to be funny and sincere at appropriate times. I am more than happy to speak to people personally if they would like any other feedback on Steve.

Upon hearing about Steve Semmens new networking book we invited him to speak at our professional development event designed to bridge the gap between the UQ student body and industry professionals. Through his engaging address, Steve instilled confidence to a diverse audience of both nervous student networkers and seasoned industry professionals. We were very impressed and have had positive feedback from attendees. The skills Steve imparted to our members have made us desire to continue a relationship between UQMA and Steve.

Steve,
Just a quick note to tell you that our recent skip workshop was a worthwhile process. It has provided management a great insight into the thoughts and attitude of our staff towards the whole skip process. Even though it told us what we didn’t want to hear, we feel that this will be of great benefit to us in the future. Your presentation was first rate and all participants enjoyed the experience.

Dear Steve,
It was nice to see you at the recent HR Summit in Brisbane recently. I must say I was impressed with the way you ran the conference. As you know I have been to a few conferences and it is refreshing to see one run on time for once, in no small part as a result of “the persuader”. You sense of humour and unique style kept the proceedings upbeat and a little less dry then they normally are at these occasions. I know other delegates were also impressed at your accessibility during the breaks and the entertainment value of your speaker introductions. Well done, your fresh approach was a welcome change.
