"I would like to commend you on your presentation to the Arglye Diamonds leadership team recently. Being an after-dinner speaker, following a long day for conference attendees, and competing with food and wine, is no easy thing.  However you managed to have the audience rapt - and even educated us in the process! The interactive multimedia approach was particularly engaging. Your topics and examples were very apt for an engineering type business, but even more relevant were you comments and role modelling of the importance of storytelling for leaders. You also showed that we must embrace rapid innovation, and we should see this as opportunity, not threat. All the best for 2008.  May the new technology not outstrip your ability to humanise it!"  
Alan Tietzel, CEO, Arglye Diamonds

I received a lot of feedback after the event saying how much people enjoyed your ‘show;. The material you covered was especially well suited to the innovation theme of the day and you delivered it with great audience interaction, enthusiasm and humour.  Your performance was a major contributor to the success of the function."
