What others have to say about Steve Carroll

Bernard Salt on Steve Carroll

Bernard Salt, The Australian, Dec 2019

Two years ago, I heard a speaker deliver some extraordinary observations about human behaviour. Steve Carroll told the audience that a decade earlier, a McDonald’s had opened in his parents’ home [and] what McDonald’s had done was to raise the bar in terms of service expectations. “If McDonald’s can deliver quick service, then why can’t you?” was the logic. Businesses need to be aware that Australians are now looking for opportunities to take their outrageous expectations of service in one area and – fairly or unfairly – apply them to another.

Ed McManus

CEO Deliveroo

Steve’s one of the most inspirational leaders I’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past. He is a tremendous speaker, a tremendous motivator, he understands customers, he understands digital trends and he has a real back at getting that across to the audience.”

Andrew Bell, Ray White

One of the things that people love about [Steve’s] presentations is that he is very engaging with the actual audience. More times than not, on one, two or three occasions, he will have the audience participate, so people find that much more connecting than most presenters who are just talking to you. So the feedback always at the end is always ‘wow, that was fantastic, I really enjoyed it’.

Tom Panos
