Fidelma Greene, Success Coach & Outsourcing Mentor, Fidelma Greene Associates | Toastmasters

“I met Harry at Toastmasters in 2009 and he was encouraging and supportive as I completed my Competent Communicator speeches. He has also become a colleague who has acted as a sounding board for me to clarify areas in my business development.” December 12, 2011 1st Fidelma Greene, Success Coach & Outsourcing Mentor, Fidelma Greene Associates

Eric Fitzpatrick, Owner | ARK Speaking and Training

“The two pillars of Toastmasters are Leadership and Communication and Harry personifies both. He has been an enthusiastic leader within the organisation and is a skilled speaker who delivers his message with clarity. Harry is also very supportive in his approach to dealing with people and helping them to achieve their own personal goals and has helped me on a number of occasions. I have no hesitation in recommending Harry to anyone who wishes to be a better communicator and leader.

Hugh Gallagher, Managing Director | Northbridge Wealth Management

“I have known Harry for four years and in that time I have seen the dedication that Harry brings to every task that he undertakes. Harry is thorough, dependable and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

John Mulligan, Dir. Corporate Sec | BMS

“I've known Harry now for more than seven years and have come to hold him in high esteem for his intelligence, his wit and his solid common sense. He is as honest as the day is long, works hard and is always available to help those in need. When Harry becomes involved in a project he brings an energy and drive to the process that propels it forward. He is a team player who provides both leadership and a sleeves rolled up kind of participation. When Harry is giving feedback it is always constructive, sensitive and supportive. The recipient feels valued and understood and is given guidance on how to do better. Harry is someone I am always happy to work with and whom I trust implicitly!”
