"Apelles' talk on 'Turning Problems Into Possibilities' in 'Toastmasters Awarenss Month 2015' was lively, humorous and engaging with plenty of examples, anecdotes and stories. By systematically asking ourselves the Seven Questions in his presentation, our fears can be dispelled and we can embrace a more positive mindset to see possibilities instead of problems in our work and life."

Pastor Apelles is a very lively and engaging speaker with a tremendous zest for life. His messages are practical, inspiring, and always peppered with wit and humour. For many years as one of his young protégés, I have drunk from his well and have been deeply impacted by his genuine love for God and people.

"The seminar was biblical, professional and interesting. It began with personal testimonies of giving sacrificially to God and to people. The 7 steps in financial planning are holistic. They cover both short and long term aspects. After attending the seminar, I was glad that there were steps that I had already taken and I also discovered that there are some areas that I need to work on. Thanks Pastor Apelles!"
