“Thanks again for your presentation at the International Trade Committee last week, it was really well received by everyone!” – Ben Powick, Policy Advisor, North East Chamber of Commerce

“As you know, the audience enjoyed your talk. There’s nothing more refreshing than having a speaker talk, with knowledge, who has no real need for slides, only for making points” – Dawn Gyles, Edinburgh Sceptics about Edinburgh Fringe Event

“So many people have told me it was their favourite talk since the start of the series and I don’t disagree!” – Prof Constantine Sandis, organiser of ‘Why Philosophy Matters’ Public Lectures at Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum

“Professor Brook’s use of the available space is exemplary. I observed the students across the room and found them to be absorbed in the lecture.  Professor Brooks talks directly to individual students who are happy to respond to the class as a whole. A number asked questions during the lecture and others approached Professor Brooks at its conclusion. Professor Brooks is an excellent lecturer – lively, engaged and very popular among the student body. This lecture was compelling, I learned a lot, and time passed very quickly.” – Prof Deirdre McCann, Professor of Law, Durham University

“Thom sets the highest standards in teaching. His enthusiasm for teaching is both obvious and infectious, and is matched by a genuine concern for enhancing, and for adding value”. – Prof Roger Masterman, Professor of Law, Durham University

“In 16 years of Higher Education, this was clearly one of the best taught sessions I have witnessed. Dr Brooks is an outstanding lecturer and possesses excellent teaching skills”. – Prof Alex Hughes, Professor in Economic Geography, Newcastle University
