I’m the owner of Dynamic Communication, a training firm that focuses primarily on building communication skills especially in the public speaking/presentation skills area. It also offers some training in the area of ‘soft’ business skills.
I was a chartered accountant for over 30 years, with a B Com from Canterbury University. My business experience includes marketing, retailing, manufacturing, importing and exporting.
For my various sins I also served as a Territorial infantry officer in the NZ Army. I retired after 15 years as a Major having received the Efficency Decoration for that service. I credit the Army with showing me just how much I could fit into 24 hours.
I gained the Distinquished Toastmaster award and have been public speaking over 20 years.
I have achieved numerous placings in Toastmaster’s speech competitions. In National Finals I have twice been the Gold Medalist and NZ Champion Impromptu Speaker – and I have also been the Silver Medalist in the Prepared Speech, Impromptu Speech and Speech Evaluation competitions.
I am an Accredited Speaking Member of the National Speakers Association of NZ, a past member of its National Executive and a past President of its Christchurch Chapter.
I am a professional public speaker having presented keynotes, seminars, facilitated forums, workshops, after dinner speeches and acted as an MC – primarily, but not exclusively in the corporate arena.
I am married to Margaret, and we are skiers, scuba divers, travellers, avid readers and transcendental meditators.
