Stephen, I found you to be:

  • Incredibly thorough, you were given an outline script on Thursday evening and in less than 24 hours you had made it your own.
  • Totally professional in your delivery
  • Followed the script but also managed to really personalise the event to the (clients) business and their core values
  • Flexible and spontaneous in that you could have a bit of fun with the audience (the lovely Julie Seymour from Accounts) and also get some really great responses and reactions from Award Winners.
  • (most importantly) Really personable, fun and easy to work with …  ​Ann-Marie Wickman, Create Marketing and Events
