Liquor Merchants Association of Australia – Annual Lunch

” The LMAA strives to be the pre-eminent supplier of information and commonly required business services to the Australian liquor industry. We wanted a speaker to match the spectacular waterfront venue of Doltone House at our annual luncheon. Allan Sparkes delivered. 300 guests and you could hear the sound of a pin drop as Allan spoke, telling us his story straight from the heart. His topics of courage in perilous situations, mental illness and his determination to rebuild his life were spoken with raw emotion. It was the classic case of people hanging onto his everyword, very powerful and very emotive.”
