Generous, Intelligent, Educated

I’ve known Toby for 30 years, and he continues to be as he always was: generous, intelligent, educated, creative, enthusiastic and fun to be around.

Insightful and Engaging

Have had the opportunity to hear Toby speak both in the US and Canada on the topic of recruiting in a global arena.

Toby is insightful and engaging and his unique point of view forces even seasoned recruiters to rethink the way they do their jobs.

Changing the way CEOS think about recruitment

Toby is changing the way CEOS think about recruitment. His work is creating a fundamental shift in the culture of some of the corporate Thought Leaders. I don’t let any business leaders I meet finish a discussion on recruitment without putting them in touch with Toby!

Matt Church, Founder Thought Leaders Global

Well Connected 

Since meeting Toby at a networking event 2 years ago, I have found him to be very well connected in the business arena. Through his events and others, he has introduced me to great contacts that have helped me with my business. I thoroughly enjoy his First Wednesday Club and by turning up regularly have received significant benefit.
If you need to meet new people, I recommend you get in touch.

Building a better and more satisfying career

Toby has given me invaluable careers guidance for almost two years. He has no hesitation in giving up his time and his advice shows how in touch he is with the relevant issues and pressures in my industry, and I am sure this knowledge extends to other areas. I would highly recommend Toby for those seeking to build a better, more satisfying career.

Vision and determination

I first worked with Toby in 1989. Since that initial encounter he has always inspired as a true ‘why can’t it be done’ style of an entrepreneurial ideas guy. Having vision and determination he is always ahead of the pack when it comes to leading edge ideas that will change the way we think about the world and ultimately about how we interact with it.

Ian Hamilton, Managing Director

Practical advice that you can use

I recommend Toby simply because I remember walking down Pitt Street feeling a bit low, meeting Toby, chatting and walking away with a new spring in my step. Toby gives practical advice in a way that you can use it.

Take a step forward in your career

Toby was a pleasure to work for. He always offered his knowledge and was a great mentor for me. I learned a tremendous amount under his employment and would recommend to anyone who has the opportunity, to take advantage of it and work with him; you will be taking a step forward in your career.

Cost effective direct marketing

There is no doubt that Toby is the go to man for financial planning recruitment. He knows all the players and where to find them. His service comes at an incredibly reasonable price and with appropriate guarantees. With his entrepreneurial hat on he is also providing VERY cost effective direct marketing and analyst services to the same market. Both of which I have recommended to clients of mine.
