“Ian Luscombe is a rogue of the first order, a disreputable impresario and a bloody good bloke. Ian has an amazing awareness of how to engage at work with kids at risk and a great, fun style of imparting this knowledge to others. I always find his presentations to be nothing short of inspirational.”

“Ian Luscombe engages staff through humour and realistic scenarios to which they can readily relate. In no time staff are reflecting on their own behaviour management strategies and how these can be improved. Ian’s session at the start of our academic year was a great inspiration and spring board into a whole school behaviour management approach. We look forward to continuing our journey with the support of Ian’s mentorship.”

“Ian Luscombe has a rare talent in communicating his knowledge about engaging students who present with severe emotional disorders and behavioural challenges. His profound knowledge comes from years of practical experience and professional training in the field. Ian’s style is both entertaining and informative. Professionals are inspired to reflect on their practices in a non-threatening way in order to refine their approaches to working with children with special learning needs.”
