See what people had to say about Dr Sam when he appeared at their corporate events, here:

“Asking Dr Sam Wass to be keynote speaker at each of our four Annual Conferences was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Absolutely every delegate raved about his presentation. These were experienced teachers of young children who were blown away by the science and research Sam presented so powerfully. Absolutely spot on the brief, Sam covered a huge amount of information in the most engaging way, keeping a huge audience gripped for the whole morning – it was intense yet good humoured. With authority and humility in equal measure, Sam was the ideal speaker for this knowledgeable audience. And if that wasn’t enough he then, generously, spent his entire lunchtimes talking to individuals, posing for selfies and signing books.” – Lynda, Early Excellence

“Friday went really well. We have evaluation forms which delegates completed but I have only just had a quick look through them…. Very positive comments both written and verbal. A truly fantastic day!” Anne, Lancashire Professional Development Service
