"We were delighted you could make it - your keynote was absolutely outstanding and I have never seen a reaction like that from an audience, and we have had some great speakers at our events down the years like Simon Woodroffe, Gerald Ratner and most recently Richard Reed from Innocent Smoothies. Your presentation received an extraordinary response from delegates with many saying it was the best they had ever seen. You were mobbed! Thanks again for all your effort and collaboration to make the presentation the perfect fit for the audience/event." Dan Coleman - Event Director - Future Travel Experience (Vancouver / Kuala Lumpur)
