"Ngahi was our keynote speaker at the United Tools 2015 Annual Conference which was held in Queenstown, New Zealand from the 24th to 26th of October 2015. The theme of our conference was New Beginnings and in my pre-engagement brief with Ngahi, we discussed the desired outcomes I was hoping to achieve as a result of his presentation. This included encouraging delegates in the development of their personal and professional leadership, actively embracing the paradigm shift that was occurring in our organization with regards to 7 new key strategic pillars, encouraging team buy-in with our people, our suppliers and our customers alike. Feedback from our people included comments to me such as one of our delegates who attends many conferences as a supplier promoting that Ngahi is one of the best he had ever seen. He had our people engaged from the start of his presentation, right through to the end. I think a very real indication of the successful impact that Ngahi had on our delegates is the fact that we are all referencing components of his presentation well beyond his short time with us. I have no doubt that his positive influence enabled us to not only complete a successful event, but more importantly his compelling story will aid our Team as we embark on our very exciting new journey." - Stuart Clark, Chief Executive Officer United.—
