"Bill’s thorough professionalism as a referee was replicated in his informative and amusing presentation as our guest speaker for the Sportman’s lunch held at Blacktown Olympic Park in 2007.
Bill kept his audience captivated with numerous recollections of his career, the colourful characters that he met, sharing all of the trials and tribulations of being the Premier Referee in the game of Rugby League for over a decade!"
"Bill was an excellent and very interesting speaker for the group of trade guys at our trade function. He was extremely entertaining and captured the audience as soon as he began.
The audience were approx 240 people who were totaly intent on focussing on what Bill was saying for the full duration. The feed back from those clients was very positive and that they all enjoyed his presentaion immensly. Great Value!"
"Outstanding Bill was great and looked to be enjoying himself, both during his presentation and chatting with delegates. I would highly recommend him for other seminars."
"Bill Harrigan exceeded our expectations as a captivating and engaging speaker at the A.B. Paterson College Corporate Breakfast in May this year. At such an early hour, Bill wasted no time in rousing the audience, managing to delight and enthuse with his genuine warmth and energetic story-telling ability.
Bill spoke candidly about his approach to his career, his dreams and his family life and made a conscious effort to underpin these tales with relevance to the corporate arena.
His anecdotes were always entertaining and, on a number of occasions, we felt as though we were right in the moment, drawn onto the field with him!
We are certainly grateful that Bill Harrigan was part of our 2005 corporate events programme and would highly recommend him as a speaker for other functions."

‘I could not think of anyone better than Bill Harrigan, given his profile at the time and given his exceptional work ethic and focus on keeping fit’.
‘It became apparent and obvious to me that Bill was also wonderfully gifted at public speaking and had the ability to draw a crowd in and keep their interest for long periods of time’.
‘Bill’s address was first class and best-practice: he did not refer to any notes and engaged everyone in attendance including those that knew about Rugby League and those that did not’.
