  • I didn’t get a chance to say this to him in person, but his presentation was so successful and entertaining and he effectively got the whole rooms undivided attention. Graham should be congratulated on the ways that he presented and taught us things that even though we’ve heard a hundred times before, didn’t sink in until the way he put it. He taught us so many life lessons and topics that will stick with us together and really help us grow as young independent women.
  • Engaging presenter with good advice- sure to keep you laughing
  • As well as being rrrrrreeeeeeeeaaaalllllyyyyyyyy entertaining and fun, Graham’s presentation is really appealing to people in senior levels. When you’re a senior there needs to be more presentations like this to tell you some hard truths and shock a little reality into you, but also give out some great advice with that light hearted tone. I think that the entertaining part of the presentation is really appealing to teenagers who find themselves being told similar things but in the droned, serious tones that teachers or parents might sometimes use. To be inspired, not commanded, is the special quality of this concept.
