It is with pleasure that I write this reference for Daniele Lima of Road Scholars Training and Strategic Consultancy.

Daniele was employed by Septimus Jones and Lee as a marketing & management consultant, to work with me on a one on one basis to market me personally and the firm.

Daniele and I met almost monthly over the last three years and during that time we worked on my profile. Daniele helped me develop the firm's blog and my presence on LinkedIn and helped me to explore other social media platforms that were relevant for the marketing of legal services.

Daniele also approached various organisations on my behalf which led to me submitting papers to a number of professional journals, which were published, and also gave me the opportunity to speak about family law to a number of professional, sporting clubs.

Daniele is very easy to work with. He encouraged me to push the boundaries and market myself in areas that I would not have considered, that said, if I was not comfortable in doing something he suggested he would come up with an alternative approach that I was comfortable with.

Daniele has an enthusiasm for what he does which is somewhat infectious. He inspired me to think outside the square and move away from what lawyers would see as "traditional" marketing.

I very much enjoyed working with Daniele and believe that my practice benefitted from our time together.

I have no difficulty in recommending Daniele to anyone needing marketing expertise. I have no doubt that Daniele will inspire anyone or any company he works with.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with respect to this reference. I note for this purpose that after 14 June 2013 I will be working for Paterson and Dowding in Perth on 08 9226 3300.

Daniele Lima has acted as a consultant in Marketing, for MDI Radiology since 2009. Invited initially to advise on the strategy for the marketing department, he subsequently trained marketing staff, sales managers and sales representatives, and further developed and taught the Diploma of Management course concurrently to several of our staff including some of our middle managers, who had no formal management training previously. He now consults within the marketing team on a regular basis, as a support and development agent.

Daniele brings with him a skill set that is rarely seen in a consultant. Obviously he "knows his stuff" and comes with an A368 of experience. It is however his quiet soft manner and gentle persuasive techniques that set him apart form the others, particularly as a change agent. He understands the limited budgets of small startups, but doesn't let the budget reflect or constrain his contribution and energy to any project he is involved in.

His lateral thinking, ability to know what is the latest 'happening' fad,and the clear logic with which he uses to express his arguments and convince the toughest crowd (the medical fraternity) makes him unique. He has improved our sales and marketing team - and indeed our sales!

But what really rubber stamps the man is his integrity, honesty and the simplicity of approach, which makes him an integral part of the MDI Radiology family. He has never taken advantage of his unique status, is always ready to help out at a moment's notice, and will readily help outeither to advise, network or help the organization even if there is no remunerative element attached. He lives his craft and message and above all - believes in himself and his clients.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Daniele's service offering to anyone considering a fresh approach.

To Whom it May concern

I recently attended the 'Manage the Marketing Process' Course conducted by Daniele Lima.

Part of my background is in Public Relations and Communications which gives me particular insight into the quality of the speaker and the content at such a course.

I was very impressed with Daniele. I thought he knew his content very well and he delivered it with enthusiasm and with sensitivity to the various different needs and backgrounds of those in attendance.

In fact, I was so taken that I have had him present a similar seminar to our law firm subsequently which was a great success and now look forward to continuing to working with him more closely as a consultant.

To whom it may concern:

Daniele Lima has worked as a consultant strategic business and marketing innovator for my business Compoundia for three years. In that time he has been of immense assistance in overseeing many vital and key strategic changes that we have made to counteract not only the changing nature of the business market, but also the uncertain and fluctuating current economy.

Despite the fact that many businesses have suffered economically in the last year due to the economic downturn, I'm pleased to ay that Compoundia defied this trend and has continued to grow and I believe that many of the strategies Daniele has come up, along with and his timely and expert training of my staff have given us a keen edge in such a competitive industry. In fact in conjunction with my accountant and financial advisor, Daniele was pivotal in helping me win the 2008 City of Melbourne, Small Business Award for Innovation.

Daniele has great vision and business nous and I can recommend him to any business that feels that it may need an additional edge to maximise their chances of success.

Yours Sincerely,
