Dan and Kieran are the co-authors of three books:

Comedy relief from down under with a huge helping of #knowledge.
An extraordinary ability to solve highly complicated and political problems.
I have the opportunity to work with many speakers and presenters throughout the year, and I can say without bias that this presentation was the best I have seen in a very long time.
Possibly the smartest human being I have ever met.
Kieran’s opening keynote established the spirit of the conferece from the outset. Embracing the theme in an engaging, relevant and lively presentation. She was the perfect choice.
@DanGregoryCo takes #leadership to the next level. Scarily awesome!
The feedback is all positive. It’s been described as ‘the best post lunch presentation ever.’
