SPEAKING TOPICS – Performance Under Pressure, Training, Behaviour & Skill Acquisition
"Dave Alred was indeed awesome. I have to say it is very rare that I rave about any guest speaker; however, this was truly sensational. The way he coached a female member of our sales team (who had never kicked a ball) to aim in a precise position was nothing short of amazing." - Patti Heaven, AXA Sun Life
"You were both informative, entertaining and made your points with real impact. I have heard a lot of 'sport to business' presentations in the past but this was by far the most relevant." - Keith Allen, Managing Director, ALD Automotive Ltd.
