Below are some comments made by clients of Dunn Media.
Gary Stone, Managing Director, Share Wealth Systems:
“James presented as one of our two key-note speakers at a customer Retreat that we held in Phuket. The feedback from our attending customers about James’ delivery and content was so good that we invited him, and his family, back to our next Retreat, in Hawaii.  James’ content was original, well-researched and not what the audience would typically read or hear in the mainstream media. His delivery kept the audience engaged and alert. I recommend James as a keynote speaker and would gladly use him again."

Jack Welch, former CEO, GE:
“Thanks for a great job at the conference. You really know your stuff and it showed. Nice going!”

Joff Macleod, partner, Pricewaterhouse Coopers:
“Many thanks for your expert facilitation of the panel at the AgriVictoria event. It was obvious that you had done your research beforehand and you steered the conversation really well between the panellists. We really appreciated your involvement.”

Patrick Farrell, chief investment officer/head of Advance Asset Management:
“In 2013, James Dunn hosted and facilitated a panel discussion, in relation to the use of Alternative Assets in a diversified investment portfolio, with myself and a hedge fund manager from New York.  The topic was complex and the audience was a range of retail investors and financial advisers.  James was able not only to ask some highly relevant yet simple questions to get the momentum going, but also ensured that the session flowed really well by maintaining a line of questioning until its logical conclusion before going onto another component.  The audience was highly engaged and the session was a tremendous success.  I would recommend James to facilitate a speaker session in the future.”

Michael McCarthy, Chief Market Strategist, CMC Markets, Sydney:
“Your chairing of the panel showed true thought leadership – a characteristic that makes us all look good.”

Sean Sykes, Australian Branch Chairman, Asia-Pacific Loan Market Association:
Each year APLMA holds annual borrower roundtables in Sydney and Melbourne, at which we bring together a panel of group Treasurers and Chief Financial Officers from some of Australia’s highest-profile institutional corporate borrowers, with an audience of over 300 people attending over the two roundtables.
 
These roundtables are facilitated by an expert independent panel moderator who will drive the panel discussion in areas that include the macro-economic landscape, the global economic outlook and impact on Australia, sentiment of corporate Australia towards growth, and perspectives on capital raising trends, drawing out of learnings from their recent fundraising experiences.
 
The role of moderator is critically important to ensuring the success of an event such as this. Over the past three year APLMA has been fortunate to have had James Dunn perform this role for both our Sydney and Melbourne roundtables. James’ background in economics and understanding of capital markets has ensured he is a natural choice as moderator. James combines his superb subject matter expertise with meticulous pre-event background research to ensure he is well-prepared in advance for our events. In addition he generously shares relevant personal experiences with our audience and always displays a great sense of humour that only adds to the audience's enjoyment of our event.
 
Our members' feedback over the past three years on James has always been of the highest accolade. Unquestionably James’ involvement and support of our roundtables has been integral to the success APLMA has derived from our roundtables. In summary APLMA would strongly recommend James as host, moderator or compere to any organisation contemplating his services.

Jeffrey Dick, Executive Director, UBS Wealth Management:
"James has an eloquent and wonderfully relaxed style. He is the ultimate professional and incredibly accommodating, whilst adding humour to engage his audience.  James facilitated UBS' Wealth Management investment seminars with our High Network Clients.  As an incredibly polished speaker, and with his experience in financial markets and journalism, he resonated with our clients and advisors alike.  We would certainly consider James for our next event.”

Grant Edwards, Principal, Edwards Marshall Financial Solutions, Adelaide:
“James has presented an economic update and sharemarket outlook to our clients at our last three annual client seminars.  The fact that we have engaged him three times in a row speaks for itself, but to expand on why we have engaged him, we find James extremely well-informed, technically accurate, topical, authoritative and probably most of all, entertaining.  Our client feedback on James’s presentations has always been very good.  I recommend James to anyone considering a speaker on economic and sharemarket issues.”

Anthony Menico, Principal, Menico Tuck Parrish Financial Services, Cairns:
"Our firm has utilised James on a number of occasions to present a 'big-picture' global economic backdrop presentation to our clients and we have found him perfect for this role. James has a real gift for presenting complex economic and market themes in an informative and entertaining manner, but what is best from our point of view James can explain complex issues in plain English. James has aptitude to deliver to all levels of the audience to which he speaks. The feedback and response from our clients has been very positive on all occasions."

David Sandison, General Manager-Leadership Training and Organisational Development, Anglicare Victoria:
"I wanted to specifically provide comments on James. He captivated an audience of non-financial people with a passionate, eloquent and at times, humorous account of the current political and economic climate in Australia and around the world. He was truly engaging and had the audience on the edge of their seats. It was refreshing to hear how he cut through to the issues without the spin and was prepared to provide his opinions. Many participants commented that they have never heard anyone be so passionate about statistics and economics and yet be able to talk about these issues in an easy-to-understand manner. He did a great job. I really appreciated his willingness to step into the breach at short notice."

Lorraine Finlay, Love & Partners Financial Services, Maroochydore:
"Thank you so much for your involvement in our dinner last night.  The feedback we have had was sensational.  We thoroughly enjoyed James’ address, a topic not typically easy to speak about  – he made it very interesting. To have such a high-quality speaker was an absolute pleasure for us and our clients."

Clark Morgan, Vice Chairman, Wealth Management Australia, UBS, Melbourne:
"Thank you for being part of our International Fund Manager panel yesterday. I greatly appreciate your time and input into this event - the feedback has been very positive."

Kevin Mullen, Managing Partner, Nexia ASR, Melbourne:
"Thank you for your presentation today.  The feedback from all involved was exceptional and your partnering with Nexia ASR has cemented positive impressions with our clients and friends."

Simon Gabbie, Principal, Infocus Money Management, Brisbane:
"Thank you so much for your presentation and presence on Wednesday night.  The feedback from clients and guests was excellent and it looks as though I may pick up a couple of new clients!"
