Jim's Dog Wash

Murray had the good fortune to emcee the recent Jim's Dog Wash conference. Here is what one of the franchisee's had to say.

"I just wanted to thank you for facilitating the Jim's Dog Wash Conference over the weekend. What a great day. My brain did get a little bit of a work for a Sunday, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The day was a credit to both yourself, and Michael Johnston. I, as well as everyone else, will be able to take a lot away from the day. Which we will be able to incorporate into our own businesses in some way. Once again, thank you, I hope you have a great week, and I am sure we will see you at the next one." Kind regards, Elishia Jim's Dog Wash

Grace Group, is made of Grace Removals, Grace Records Management and Grace Information Management, while the product offering and target market of each is different they are all serviced based and primarily sales are business to business.

We wanted to develop a sales training program for a service business that was unique to Grace. In our view for the program to be successful our sales people had to be able to identify with it and recognise that the sales message had a direct relationship to their day to day activities.

When we went to market to find a sales training organisation we quickly found that most providers offered a generic product and any customisation was superficial at best.

We selected Murray Fitzpatrick because he understood what it was that we sought, he invested time effort in understanding our company, our culture and industry – when he delivers training he speaks our language and the message has meaning.

Through Murray’s involvement we have taken our team from competent to dynamic and the results achieved are testament to his ability.

Steven Brown, Managing Director Grace Group of Companies.

Thank you for your facilitation of our recent In-Country Managers Workshop.

It was a very successful few days, and was a great team building exercise which enabled all attendees to get to know one another, in a non-confronting way, to share information and resources, and to help them in their future roles back in their own countries.

Initially, the attendees were all a little apprehensive, not knowing what they were in for! However, you soon put them at ease during your presentation, and you were able to give them insights into behaviours, personality differences and attitudes that gently but thoroughly gave them the confidence to stretch themselves, and go beyond their comfort zones. All in all, their feedback about your days presentation was very positive and was recorded as the most enjoyable part of their 4 day workshop here. We all agree that you helped give our young Mangers more confidence in dealing with situations and self-confidence generally.

We are now looking at pursuing this event as one of our annual events.

Thank you again for your thoughtful and thorough facilitation which helped make the Workshop a great success.

We look forward to interacting again with you.

Yours sincerely

Murray

On behalf of the team at Affinia – thank you!

Your professionalism, humour and call to action ensured we delivered a conference that we can all be very proud of.

Thanks once again and I look forward to catching up again.

General Manager
Affinia Financial Advisers Limited


Futuro has used Murray has as conference facilitator at our last 7 conferences. His contribution to the format, presenters and on how to go about getting the message across has given us more time to be better prepared and to concentrate on the development of high quality material. He has invested considerable effort on getting an in-depth understanding of our people and our corporate culture which has meant that he has been able to brief speakers on how to go about getting the maximum out of their presentations.

The attendee feedback on our most recent conference, and on Murray’s contribution in particular, was our best ever which is testament to his ability to continually keep things fresh by re-invent his approach.

Apart from all of that we have found him to be a fair and decent person/bloke to deal with.

Just wanted to touch base to thank you for your efforts with the guys over the past fortnight. I’ve spoken to the majority of the group from Wednesday and all rated it by far the most useful ‘media’ training session they have completed.

I’m really looking forward to seeing them put their knowledge into practice in the corporate environment this year.

Look forward to working with you again.

Cheers

Murray recently worked with Brad Fox, the CEO of the Association of Financial Advisers Board, focusing on their Presentation Skills training.

Murray is a captivating speaker. He presented to the Officials of Hockey NSW Events and assisted with conflict resolution and communication. He made the audience feel very comfortable and was able to connect with them which inevitably executed the purpose of his presentation. I would recommend Murray to any organisation with the need to improve with communication and conflict resolution skills.

Murray has acted as MC for the Q Invest annual business event over the past two years. At both events Murray did a fantastic job keeping the guest speakers on topic and on time, while hitting the right note with the audience. I have no hesitation recommending Murray for anyone seeking an MC for a professional event.

Murray’s one-on-one presentation skills coaching greatly improved my confidence and attitude towards presenting. He equipped me with the mental skills to have ‘courage under fire’, not only the physical skills for speaking in public. I really appreciate the help Murray gave me and remember his tips and tricks and always use them. I highly regard his coaching skills and style and am more than happy to recommend him.

I saw Murray presenting at a large conference I was attending as a supplier. Murray’s dynamic ‘likeable’ enthusiasm impressed me so much I employed his services for what was an ever increasing brief.

Murray had the ability to understand my business and identify key points and people to work on. Murray put together a 6 month plan to motivate and train all field rep’s, including chairing sales meetings. The sales force feedback was extraordinary, the results were a true credit to Murray.

Murray mentored a factory manager. Murrays quick assessment and direct ‘cut through the rubbish’ approach turned a man’s personal and professional life around in a short time frame.

Murray has a unique ability to understand what I as a customer wanted, and identify what to do and lay a plan out how to do it. With his addictive personality he brings people together for a positive experience.

From a proxy sales manager, team motivator, mentor to presenting to customers on my companies behalf I could not have been happier with our relationship.

Customers and staff alike frequently recall Murray, always associating him as a fun and professional presenter.

Thanks very much for facilitating the recent national road show for Futuro in all our states. The feedback from the session has been fantastic, in particular your ability to organise the agenda, the relevant speakers, the flow of the day and the way you are able to add your own unique style to make sure that not only the participants really thoroughly enjoy it, but are committed to doing something to help their businesses.

Our network have had some ordinary experiences with external presenters in the past and can be somewhat sceptical, but having you on our team and bringing the right people to the table has given them all a boost.

Look forward to seeing you at our national forum conference in the Barossa Valley.
