"Quentin checked out the Dinner venue with me, and after freshening up, made his way back to welcome the delegates during pre-dinner drinks. This is one area that I was most impressed with, as throughout his short stay, Quentin endeavored to meet every delegate and have a chat. At the dinner, he visited every table, some more than once. I don't think many guest speakers would have gone to this trouble with genuine interest and enthusiasm as Quentin provided. It was good to have 2 segments as Guest speaker, it balanced the dinner well, and people were not shy at asking questions. A number of wine gifts were distributed to those participants. Quentin's speech went down well, as did his impromptu answers. Toward midnight - Quentin and I had a go at singing 'Unchained Melody' to remaining diners. How he wasn't snatched up by Australian Idol - I don't know! The following morning after breakfast, Quentin visited the Conference area during morning tea and once again met with delegates and won more hearts. Thank you for arranging this special visit. Quentin is a wonderful gentleman with so many natural qualities."
