Ian is an inspirational and very knowledgeable mentor for me. Ian and PTA Global played a major role in revolutionizing the Training Department within Fitness First Germany. He inspired my colleagues and myself to implement the PTAG principles which in turn had a huge impact on our business – on the internal and external perception as well as in terms of revenue. In 2011, I took part in his mentorship in Noosa Heads. Three days of intense learning, self-reflection and last but not least - lots of fun! I can highly recommend Ian as a presenter, consultant and mentor!

I have had the privilege of working in a professional capacity with OD over the last four years. Over the last three decades, my physiotherapy career has involved working in elite level sport alongside world leaders in sports medicine, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning. I have been immensely impressed by the depth of OD's ability and rank him at the top of the pyramid in his profession. He is an excellent coach and mentor plus a brilliant educator. Most importantly for me, OD is a wonderful colleague who has the rare deep skill base to work anywhere along the medicine <->fitness spectrum.

Ian O'Dwyer is a healer, and I don't use the word lightly. Long years with animals, people in trouble, and sportsmen at the top of their game have given Ian real insight into human movement - not just on the biomechanical level, though he shines there, but on a psychoscocial level as well. I have watched in awe a number of times as Ian worked with groups, where he is nothing short of miraculous in his ability to get all manner of people working together, no matter their skill or ability level. With individuals, his 'no nonsense empathy' is motivational in its best sense. I heartily recommend Ian for whatever position he seeks. He is a great addition to any team.

I had known of OD long before I had the pleasure of meeting him. He is one of the most knowledgeable industry professionals I've met and, most importantly, is able to tailor the delivery of this knowledge to suit any audience. Despite being a highly respected and often requested international presenter, OD is humble, approachable and operates in a manner that always best represents the industry. It's a pleasure to be able to share OD's background with fitness professionals. I encourage anyone to read OD's complete bio in the ACHIEVEMENTS section.
