‘Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend the best seminar that I have attended since being with this organisation. It will certainly provide me with a good knowledge of what to look for while doing my job. Top presenter, and will certainly be recommending others to attend his courses.’

Alby Simpson

‘The best 4 hour presentation I've ever attended. The quality & content was very easy to understand, had high impact and kept my focus and interest. The balance between DVD/commentary & demo was great and the hand out material was excellent.’

Debra Tutua

‘The visual presentation of videos, resources were excellent. I have been to a number of Drug & Alcohol seminars, and the content has always been around facts and figures, boring stuff! This presentation was informative, enlightening and definitely useful in terms of my role when visiting whanau in rural areas.’

Sina Davis

"As I commented before this course was a real eye opener. They were very knowable about the drug and I like the way they showed the effects on the users and the people around them. It was an awesome course and I hope that more people get to experience it!"

Christina Vaevae - Mainfreight

‘The presentation gave an excellent overview of the problem and a good awareness of what to look out for. This should be something that all staff and their families have access to viewing. The training is perfect as it is a real eye opener.’

Kevin Walker - Fletcher Easysteel Palmerston North

‘The comments from the staff since your presentation have been nothing but positive and have certainly now given them the confidence and the professionalism in dealing with possible customers affected by this drug, but more importantly the dangers or indicators to look out for when they do visit properties. I would like also to let you know that since your training the region now has a zero tolerance towards 'P' and we will be enforcing this rain, hail or shine.’

Kani Edwards

“You explored key issues facing our young people of today in any society and highlighted the implications this lethal drug can have on our community. Your ability to mix light humour with pertinent and somewhat sombre facts helped with the processing of this information. On behalf of our school community we would like to sincerely thank you, Dale, for this well received presentation about Methamphetamine. Thank you again for taking the time out of your schedule and evening to share your knowledge in this way.”
