“Chris Anstey was the best guest speaker in the 17 year history of the Burnie international...Full stop!
We have had some beauties but nothing to match Chris, and that was the feedback/view from everybody in the room, not the usual “good” or “okay” – this was a new level!
Not only the best speaker but so approachable, so easy to speak to, at the function after the luncheon everyone was still raving about Chris.
It’s hard to explain how someone can slide into a room of unknowns, give everything of himself and win everyone over in such a short period. Chris had some amazing stories to tell – and he is a real story teller.
He had the audience laughing and gasping throughout, he held them captured and you had the feeling he could have talked forever – and we all would have listened forever!
Talk about a 'WOW' factor, for the entire international event, Chris was it.
There were some pretty hardened punters in that audience and they were ones we sounded out for feedback, and they were praise worthy beyond belief! Burnie gives Chris a 15 out of 10, he was that good!”
