"In 2007 our company was growing fast and with that came a lot of staff and management issues I was unprepared for. We were constantly changing technical staff and the tension within the office was high. After waiting longer than I should have I sought out help. Libby helped me realise what was causing the issues in the business and acted as a guide to assisting with a complete culture change within the company. Not only are the staff happier many of the issues that caused stress for management are gone. I strongly recommend you call Libby - she will make a real difference."

I have a number of initiatives in the pipeline and the creative brain is working overtime with all the things I want to achieve. It’s been amazing and really have you to thank for showing that I do have ability and that there is and was more for me."
-- T.M.


Speaking

"You were exceptional, absolutely exceptional. You made so many points that are quite pertinent to me right now and made me reflect. First class. Very powerful, very confident. Everyone took something away, you won’t even know that because the degree of success you had, they just took everything you said and thought good god yes, they weren’t looking at you as a speaker at all they were just absorbing the information you were providing to them. Quite exceptional, you have a great speaking career ahead of you."

-- Helen Drennan, Talent Management Lead, Orica

"World Class Speaker. Over a week later our CEOs have not stopped talking about you and have sung your praises in every respect. The content of your talk and your personal impact together was simply captivating."
-- Di Harland, Intercept

"Libby Sander recently gave her keynote speech at our business leaders' breakfast on 24 September 2008. We had around 50 clients/associates in attendance.

Libby's speech was stunningly effective. This was clearly apparent at the end when it was time for people to go back to work and no one moved from their seats. She had given everyone plenty to think about and it led to very animated discussion around the room.

Libby's knowledge of the topic, including many references to facts and quotes, was evident and her delivery was both smooth and challenging. Her passion for the importance of people and their development in a corporate environment came through very clearly.

It was one of the best speeches I have ever heard, and I have heard hundreds, and I think Libby will emerge as a notable speaker in years to come. I have had very positive feedback from many of the breakfast attendees including one comment that Libby's speech was world class."
-- Gerry Lambert, Qld Director Intercept

"Thank you Libby for a wealth of information that is all relevant and will take me a lifetime to digest. Great messages that are relevant for me now (and always)."
-- Greg Pickering, CEO Mounties

"Thank you for helping to make today's breakfast such a resounding success. I use those words because that is the feedback we received from our guests at the venue this morning and also via subsequent e-mails. Your presentation was lapped up by the audience."
-- Richard Margolis, Proprietor, Intercept Victoria

"Awesome! There is no room for improvement! It was perfect! Worth getting out of bed early for. And I don’t say that lightly! I take my bed time very seriously! "
-- Rachel Cartledge, No Limit Group

"I think there is more to be learned by me from a second and third viewing, not to mention my business partners-a thought provoking and inspiring talk.

For Libby, I have nothing but positive feedback for her; she is obviously well learned on the topic and very passionate about empowering people. She was obviously well prepared and listening to her quote statistics and situational evidence about how and why we fail to develop successful work environments was great. Leaders today should focus a lot more on the many aspects of helping people achieve their personal best. She is a great speaker and should continue with her public speaking interests."
-- John Richardson, QPF

"A fantastic presentation, I wanted you to keep going."
-- Cameron Woods, Chief Operating Officer, No Limit Group

"It certainly re-affirmed to me that all the focus I place on the value of the human capital in a business is properly directed. Not only a great reinforcement, but inspiring and moving as well. "
-- Brent Hailey, UDIA

"I found Libby Sander’s presentation to be very interesting and it was clear to see that she ‘knows her onions’. My ears pricked when she touched on Performance Appraisals and other than agreeing with her philosophy on the matter, it has me thinking now as to what changes I could effect in this area."
-- David Ball, State Manager Victoria, Prixcar Services Pty Ltd
