"I'd like to express my appreciation for the wonderful job Steve Liebmann did in his role as host of the Career Advice Australia Conference at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in August 2006. Steve's contribution as Master of Ceremonies lifted the mood of the Conference and encouraged participants to be actively involved. Steve's energy and enthusiasm helped make the conference the success it was. Steve is a pleasure to work with and his relaxed manner made it extremely easy for my colleagues and I to get our jobs done. Over 700 delegates attended the conference and feedback has relected how impressed participants were with Steve's obvious passion for helping young people plan their future career pathways. A heartfelt thanks for a job well done and I look forward to working with Steve again in the future."

"Thank you for taking part in the Schools-Business Dialogue on 6 June at Parliament House. I hope it will be the beginning of an ongoing partnership between school communities and business for the benefit of young Australians.
I greatly appreciate the valuable time you gave to contribute to the success of the Dialogue. I was very impressed with the way that you managed the day and ensured that everyone present was able to express their views on the issues that were raised. The day ran very smoothly and I have received positive feedback from many of those present.
Both presentations and group discussion highlighted the importance of employers and the business community developing stronger links with schools. I believe that strengthening these links and building partnerships will bring many benefits to students and ensure that they leave school equipped with skills that are relevant to the workplaces of the 21st century.
I was impressed with the range of ideas generated in the afternoon session and also with the passion and enthusiasm that was clearly on display. There were many different and valuable perspectives that were brought to the discussion and I trust that you found it productive and worthwhile. The discussion was lively and I think greatly assisted by your excellent facilitation."
