Learning & Development, MetroNorth Hospital and  Health Service

Good presenter with knowledge and ability to engage and expand people’s knowledge. Easy to listen to and understand. Educational and interesting.

Participant, Australian Institute of  Management

Malcolm is an expert, enthusiastic and engaging facilitator. He also has a talent for creating thoughtfully contextualised training material tailored specifically for the customer’s needs. I would recommend Malcolm highly.

Senior Program Manager, HETI (NSW Health)

I worked with Malcolm during my time with TAFE Queensland and found him to be most professional and knowledgeable. He has a remarkable grasp of key business strategy issues and developing sound business cases for proposals from which future plans can be built and executed.

Facilities Manager, Qld TAFE Institute

Excellent introduction to finance. Facilitator was engaging for a dry topic with regular reviews of key topics. A complicated topic made simple by the presenter.

Participant, Medical Managers Program, Hunter New England  Local Health District

The facilitator was very knowledgeable, the day was much more useful than I had anticipated and the environment encouraged participation, learning and collaboration.

Participant,  Medical Managers Program, HETI (NSW Health)

I wish I had done this course 15 years before as it provided a great structure to design and implement a business case.

Participant,  Effective Business Case Design, HETI (NSW Health)

Mal demonstrated his superior skill and knowledge  when he was contracted to deliver a rollout of a north Qld District Hospital and Health Services financial management/cost centre manager training. Training was delivered to 100+ employees and the results confirmed our decision that he was the first choice to partner with the District to roll out this training strategy.  I highly recommend Mal Lawson and would not hesitate to engage his services in the future.

Principal Project Officer, Human Resources, Qld State Government

Mal’s training outcomes were always very high and his responsiveness in providing proposals and then delivering against his proposals was always first rate. He provides highly professional services with a genuine warmth and friendliness that builds genuine trust.

General Manager,  Professional  Association

Malcolm has excellent facilitation skills. He is congenial and puts a room at ease, is well prepared and structured with respect to content. At the same time flexible with respect to the audience’s needs. Malcolm’s work is always of excellent quality.
