Rowdy McLean

“Rowdy is simply sublime. In his presentations he paints a picture of his own life story that is so utterly compelling, vivid and authentic it is as if we have lived every step with him.  Through an almost instinctive understanding of the audience, he takes every one of us on our own individual journey of realization, leaving us feeling not just inspired but changed by the experience.  No hackneyed clichés or rhetorical statements; just truth, all presented with a legitimacy grounded by sincere and robust principles. The long queue of delegates who wait to talk to Rowdy at the end of every presentation is not just testament to the sheer brilliance of his presentation but to his connectedness with the audience and the openness that he clearly conveys whilst onstage.” –Exhibit Systems
