"Warren’s work on the complexities of human performance is world class.
He has clearly ‘tilted the lance at some sacred cows’, but so what, this is exactly what every leader who wants to perform at the highest standards needs."

"Warren Kennaugh is more committed to enabling high performance
in individuals and teams than any other person on the planet. His no-
nonsense, at times humorous approach is reflected throughout his programs and working with him. Kennaugh makes it powerful yet simple to understand and provides direction for everyone to be a high performer in all aspects of life - if you’re interested in exceptional performance then working with him is for you."
Brett Rumford, PGA Golfer, six times winner on the EPGA Tour
"Warren Kennaugh’s work in high performance is definitive. His research, compelling case studies and experience share insights that are profoundly true. I recommend his work to managers, leaders, and any individuals interested in performing at their highest levels."
Steve Weston, CEO, Mortgages, Barclays UK
"Most sports, and certainly the one I am involved with (rugby), include
considerable physical mastery and significant technical skill. But of course,
to be a true champion of your chosen profession, you have to know who
you are and how you respond under pressure situations, be in control of
yourself and know how you best operate. Warren’s work exposes the absolute
importance of the performance mindset of the athlete and that as managers
and coaches we simply cannot afford to ignore this critical area. To do so
would be negligent! "
Lyndon Bray, SANZAAR Game Manager, former Test Match Rugby Referee
"Thanks Simon for the engaging and educational presentation to our swimming technical officials. We loved that you were able to share many of your career highlights and lowlights, yet also tailor the presentation to what our officials needed to know. We would happily ask Simon to present to our technical officials in future. "
Elise Mace, Sustainability & Growth Coordinator, Swimming Australia
"IAG engaged Simon as part of its training program - Coping with Change. Through his sharing of experiences from an Elite officiating and executive management career, Simon connected immediately with the audience. His unique presentation style involved audience participation, self reflection and strategy options.
The benefit of Simon Taufel as a keynote speaker for our conference was that he just didn’t present on the topic, he made a genuine effort to spend time with all the delegates throughout the conference, which remains a highlight for those present that is still talked about today."
Kent Hannam, Manager - Broker Relationships and Agri Development. Agri Solutions. IAG
"I enjoyed the presentation very much and from my observation the group was very engaged and attentive. I don’t often have feedback telling me the session was too short and I did this time so credit to you for holding their attention so well."
Simon Woinarski, Program Coordinator, Officiating and Coaching, NSW Office of Sport
