Testimonials

Concise and powerful opening address from Ray Ellis CEO First National at their Singapore conference. He talked about hindsight being one of the most useless words in the English language. He urged his offices to move forward and embrace change or face the dire consequences. He reminded us all of our social responsibilities. the most impressive thing was how much he knew about everyone in the 250 audience. # leadership # business

Steve Carroll, REA GroupDirector of Industry Relations

A short note to thank you for the kind invitation to attend the opening of FNRE’s National Convention today and to hear the Opening Address of Ray Ellis and then Keynote Speech by John Howard. It was inspiring to listen to Ray’s exposition on the volatility of today’s marketplace and of the dramatic impact of technology on the economy at large. I was impressed by the effort made by the FN Head Office to develop and to provide what seemed to be advanced and effective tools to the FN network to facilitate you keeping abreast of the market’s requirements and ahead of your competition. Please convey our appreciation of the quality of Ray’s talk to him if you get the chance. I have the strong feeling that FN is very fortunate to have a CEO of his calibre….

A follow up note to say a heartfelt thanks for your time and for your keynote address at our ‘Focus’ Convention on Sunday. I can’t tell you how many references from your presentation I had parroted back to me from Franchise Partners over the course of the 4 days. I lost count. Your name came up over and over. Your presentation was fantastic and really helped set the scene for what turned out to be a brilliant and vibrant convention.

Coming from another brand to First National as a business owner, I totally vouch for Ray’s insights into First National. We love them and couldn’t be happier.

I have had the privilege of working with Ray Ellis since taking the opportunity to expand my career with First National Real Estate.

Throughout my professional life in both the private sector and defence I have had exposure to a vast range of true professionals, leaders and amazing business minds – it is without hesitation that I say Ray Ellis is by far the most accomplished and effective business leader I have had the opportunity to work with.

Ray’s ability to develop, monitor and execute business strategy is exceptional, combined with the integrity he demonstrates through his inclusive leadership style and willingness to assist his team achieve, encourages an environment of growth, productiveness and professionalism.

I am truly excited about my opportunity to further develop both personally and professionally under Ray’s guidance and coaching.
