I’m passionate about being current and openly accountable, desiring to be effective within my circle of influence which adds weight to my words.
Self promotion is something I loath but for those that do not know me personally, the following recommendations help to fast track our relationship.
Family – Faith – Friends are my key motivators and the following are just some of the people I enjoyed collaborating with as I take on my next chapter in life.. and Smart City Perth is part of my next chapter.
The following words come from individuals I’ve personally work with or have worked with who are likeminded and want to make a difference in society.
Gerry Hanssen ~ Construction Boss “Tom’s character influences people, he is too hard to explain””
Darren Linton ~ Hanssen, General Manager ‘In modern times of social influencers; Tom has proven his core values of morals and ethics to influence, works in the real world. His experience and understanding of human nature, brings the best out of groups and individuals. Purely by developing culture and accountability. Our new company motto is ‘Making a difference’ and Tom has been a big part of that.’
Glenda Maxwell-Mcginn – Property Manager “Tom is the most genuine and sincere person you could ever wish to meet and one of his main desires in life is to encourage and motivate people from all walks of life to excel. Not only in their chosen careers but in their own personal lives as well.
This amazing passion to encourage and motivate us is not a gift but has been forged through his own circumstances and some deep soul searching with himself and God.
Tom is a great person to have as a friend, conference speaker, life coach, motivational trainer and I’m sure he’ll leave a lasting impression on all who meet him.”
Denby Jackson ~ Construction Foreman “I can’t believe the skills I have developed in the space of 12 months”
Steve Hasluck ~ Real Estate / City of Perth Councillor “Tom, you are the ONLY man I spend time with that will not even look at his phone when with me. This is a sign of respect in this modern world unlike many others”
Tom sees the best attributes in an individual and subtlety reminds that individual of those attributes.
Tom is a person you want to be around as he has a unique ability to fan the flame within you.
Chris Bown ~ Ex Detective working with Ex prisoners “Tom has a unique ability to draw greatness out of people, he is a man of high ethical character who leads by example and never asks anyone to do anything he is not willing to do himself”
Daniel Gwyther Jones ~ Construction Foreman “Tom is a unique individual, a very understanding and compassionate leader with very powerful practices. I would recommend Tom’s unique skill set in any walk of life!”
Amy O Grady ~ Construction Foreman “Tom has given me the guidance and knowledge to actively change the course of my career and more so my life’s outcomes through implementing life-long, age old principles and leadership skills. Before Tom came along, I felt hopeless and frustrated within my company as change seemed like an impossible reality. I doubted Tom’s ability to change anything, however as persistent as Tom is, he broke through the barriers of all our minds and created change widespread throughout our company.
He has impacted every leader we have here today. We are better people since meeting Tom and somehow the world is a better place since he came on board.
Quinton Tucker ~ Indigenous Australian – Social Entrepreneur ” Tom is a spiritual warrior who’s time has come. His pure strength is his knowledge in seeing the true potential in every individual regardless of race, culture or religion. Tom is inspirational and contagious”
Joe Stefanelli ~ Land Lord “Tom is a goal setter, for himself and foe others, always leaving you feeling a little uncomfortable if you simply wish to coast along in life.
Tom’s greatest attribute is that he is a genuine team player and believes that everyone is as good as himself. Tom will leave you wanting to achieve more for yourself and for others, without thinking “Am I worthy of such ambition”
Matthew Bogart ~ Accounts Manager USA “Tom’s influence caused me to re-think my paradigms and core values for the better. He has an innate ability to mentor through the use of humour, story telling and personal experience that draws you into his message of a holistic self development path which focuses on mind, body and spirit.
Tom attracted a a huge following on social media platforms where he extended his reach globally with his vision to impact and lift up people to become the best version of themselves.”
Paul Wilson ~ Construction Boss “I believe Tom’s influence has helped me to follow my path to success in my own company.
James H Tee ~ Division of Tee Hup Seng Holdings (1918) “It’s an extraordinary rarity in business to come across such a remarkably effective and practical leadership mentoring & personal achievement program.
It had been a privilege to have experienced the benefits of Tom Smilovitis’s counselling and guidance that is administered in a uniquely unobtrusive technique which assists the individual in identifying those personal issues that require attention and if necessary modification.
It is this sense that perhaps Tom’s pioneering method is unique”
Andre De Bar – Business Strategist “Tom’s ability to bring me to a point of awareness and understanding whilst tackling some of the most confronting personal issues and professional cognitive challenges was something that I never imagined would happen especially in the business world”
John Bell ~ Semi-Retired Business Strategist “It is always refreshing to catch up with Tom, he always helps me focus on the positives and he gives me re-newed energy and focus.
CHISENGA ~ Rapper/Entrepreneur/Creative Director “I met Tom about 2 years ago when he approached me and made a prophecy on my life that I can never forget. It is one of those things that felt strange until reality set in. We have since been good friends and, I somewhat look at him as a mentor. This in a way is a compliment to Tom. Nobody wants to follow a man that lacks vision.
Tom gets an idea and he is fired up about it. He pursues it with consistency and shares the vision with those smart enough to fathom the fact this major idea is actually possible.
There is definitely something great in a man that pursues a dream with a passion while lifting others up and making them understand that we could all play a part.”
Thank you for sharing your time with me when you could have been anywhere else.
