"Ned is an outstanding operator who has a broad and deep knowledge of the sports industry as a whole. He is creative, results driven and personable. I couldn't recommend Ned more highly."
Kieran Brazil, Principal - Brazil Recruitment
"I know Ned as a client , as a recruiter, and I can safely say I wish they were all like him! He is a genuine, considerate person, professional, empathetic, and striving for the best. A very human person, he cares about the way in which he deals with others, always prepared to see things from others' perspectives. I imagine this would make him very valuable as a leader of his design studio from a clients point of view. He will really listen, understand what you are looking to do, and then motivate his people to deliver. Ned is a great client, and a top bloke - a great Aussie recommendation - one of my very few clients that is taller than me too!"
Boti Nagy, Journalist, News Corporation
"In my media capacity, I had the great pleasure to work with Ned during the times he was involved in the National Basketball League at Perth Wildcats and Victoria Titans, and also less directly when he was in SA as CEO of the soccer league's Adelaide Force. I always found Ned to be very energetic, enthusiastic, creative and committed and I strongly valued his efficiency, candour and well-formulated viewpoint on issues. A forward and a lateral-thinker, he was a pleasure to deal with and always professional, regardless of the potential contentious nature of some the media coverage of his sports and teams. I have no hesitation in recommending Ned for any position that involves dedication, flair or presents challenges that require quick-thinking and positive solutions."
Louise Duffy, Tasweld Engineering
"Ned, You have the touch! We are very excited (muted none the less because we are engineers). Kind Regards,"

"Ned is a personable guy who understands his brief and the need to engage stakeholders to produce a successful result. He can work through complex issues but still produce the results, on time and within budget. The new imagery he produced for Basketball Australia was widely acclaimed and accepted."
Tim Davies, Manager, Seller Education & Engagement at eBay
"Ned is an extremely collaborative person who has demonstrated his creative prowess time and time again. His understanding of branding and marketing is second to none and he delivers every time. Ned is also a very generous and sincere person who always has time to share. I commend him on his success thus far and hope many more can experience the Coten touch! "
