What a fabulous presenter you are Mario .... you hold the room, and they wait on every spec of information you provide. To ALL .... are you looking for a presenter for any subject, and to actually have the confidence to leave your info in careful and professional hands, then go no further than Mario ... He has to be the most confident, easy -going and professional presenter I have dealt with in 20 years in the training industry.

I had the privilege of engaging Mario as a guest speaker at a business forum group I operate called Ripple Effect for Leaders. Mario immediately captivated the room with his energy, humor and his ability to connect with each participant. Mario's knowledge of leadership, business and human interaction/communication is broad, varied and quite exceptional. An innovative, charismatic and engaging trainer and speaker, I have asked Mario to speak again at a business conference for SME owners and I would recommend Mario as a speaker and/or trainer/facilitator.

Speaking about adult literacy at the half-way mark of a full day of presentations and panel sessions about education in Tasmania was perfect timing, as Mario breathed new life into the room and reinvigorated the participants at a crucial point in proceedings.
During the breakout conversations, his corner was particularly animated and engaged which was further evidence of his energy and enthusiasm.
The "Theory of Small Tweaks" was one which particularly resonated with the group, so much so that it was frequently referenced during our debrief and collaborative write-up of the outcomes of the Thinkbank process.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mario as an energetic and dynamic presenter and conversationalist.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mario in 2012 where he provided training in Certificate IV TAE to our staff and was also a guest speaker at our annual Staff Conference.
Cootharinga provides services to people with a disability in North Queensland, not being Mario’s field of expertise he took the time to fully understand our request. He met with key people, analysed our strategic directions, our mission, values and philosophy of service delivery to better inform him of the needs of the group. In doing so Mario had the exceptional ability to provide engaging information to his audiences and participant feedback was of a very high level.
Mario is a talented speaker! He has a playful nature which made his presentations fun, informative and interactive. He has unique insights and connected to his audience on a personal level gaining their attention by drawing from real life experiences. Mario was extremely organised, he had the ability to understand learner’s needs and knew his material very well.
Mario has the unique ability to capture his audience of any size. I would highly recommend Mario as a speaker

I have known Mario for over a decade in a professional capacity and I highly recommend him as an executive coach and trainer. His exceptional communications and interpersonal skills position Mario as a leader in the fields of Management Training and Customer Service Consulting. Moreover Mario’s presentation skills are exemplary. Mario’s business acumen honed over his career as a project manager, training consultant, business manager, property manager and community leader has positioned him at the forefront of the Australian Management Training sector.
