“If you want best in class, funny with a plethora of facts and realities about wellbeing, fitness and nutrition then Dr Close is you man! Don’t let the Dr bit fool you this isn’t going to be a boring presentation far from it. When your dealing with someone pushing the boundaries in sport science especially in the areas of strength and nutrition your going to get some golden nuggets of information. Graeme spoke to an audience of nearly 200 HR professionals in the Cayman Islands they loved his talk so much they asked him back the following year to the national HR conference. Graeme is hands down a passionate and clever speaker who presents with humour that allows the audience to stay engaged and enjoy his messages. I look forward to welcoming him back!”
