Quotes and Testimonials

AHIG Membership

I have been a member of AHIG for a number of years and was drawn to the convenience and knowledge base being made available for a very affordable annual fee. I have had to call on AHIG on several occasions for various HR/IR and Contractual issues and have been very happy with the response and the timely manner in which I receive it. With AHIGs help I now have a better understanding of and have been able to start implementing a 6 monthly employee performance appraisal system. David and the team at AHIG have a wealth of experience and knowledge relevant to my work and industry and I encourage people to review the membership benefits. I did join and I am glad that I did. Practice Manager, Queensland

I have attended many seminars at AHIG. I have found them to be enjoyable and very informative on current information that is vital to effective management of clinical practice. I highly recommend!!! Manager, South Australia

Privacy Training

Your presentation was wonderful thank you. You definitely made it easier to understand the new privacy laws! Thank you again David, the legal jargon did sound better coming from you.
Human Resources Manager, Northern Territory

Industrial Relations & Human Resources

Thank you for a brilliant presentation last night.

It was very informative and I enjoyed your real case scenarios. As a practice manager it definitely made me think... How do I currently manage issues that arise in the practice? But also what resources and processes I need to put in place to prevent.
Practice Manager, Victoria

HR & IR Masterclass for Practice Managers

It was very beneficial to learn and discuss situations with David as he teaches from his practical experiences rather than simply giving instructions or reciting from text. A very informative, yet informal and enjoyable day.
Practice manager, Cairns

David was very personable and inspired a sense of excitement for dotting I’s and crossing T’s ☺ I will certainly be more diligent after this session. I found this session very relevant to situations I am experiencing in my workplace at the moment. We are in the middle of creating new contracts and also creating a new structure for the Practice Principals Thank you.
Practice Manager, Launceston

My colleague and I attended the HR & Industrial Relations Master Class with David Wenban, this was my second class with David & my colleague’s first.

We really find David to be such a knowledgeable person on so many different subjects. He makes the class easy to follow and understand, and he is always happy to chat about issues that an individual may be having at their workplace.

We did especially enjoy the case studies & discussions at the end of the class. I look forward to the next class I attend with AHIG.
Practice Manager, Tweed Heads

Privacy and Clinical Governance

I attend a lot of presentations and would rate this one very highly on content, delivery and useful information. I like the way it was straight to the point, very factual and relative to our businesses. The 3 hours went very quickly. Well done.
Practice Manager, Adelaide

The Neuroscience of Influence

The subject and facilitator was very engaging which has meant that I have already retained more from this one day course than any other that I have attended. Now it is a matter of practice, practice, practice.

Managing with care: dealing with underperformance, bullying complaints and dismissals

Great day. David was very informative and a great speaker learnt a lot. David takes the stiffness out of the legal jargon and brings it down to an understandable level with a sense of humour.

These issues covered must be widespread, all PMs in attendance were often seen nodding in agreement when David was talking about different personalities and how to manage them. There was good opportunity for discussion/commentary within the group.

David was an engaging presenter and related each topic back to general practice which was refreshing. Most training sessions I have attended are general healthcare focused, and often not relevant to general practice.

Practice Manager, Queensland


Bullying and Harassment Awareness

David presented 4 empowering sessions on Bullying & Harassment in the workplace in just over 24 hours and I must thank him for holding the audience’s attention throughout. Great speaker who has the X factor I think! Human Resources Manager,

Rural Health Service, Victoria


OHS/WHD for Employees (webinar)

Usually this is a subject that you do have to keep alert but could nod off. I found this the best presentation and webinair (sic) that I have ever listened to.
