"Gareth’s speech about change management and the benefits/problems around merges and acquisitions was highly insight. With the merger of Local world and Trinity Group PLC, he has certainly helped our senior management team foresee problems which we might have faced. He was eloquent and easy to work with." - David Simms, Regional Managing Director, East Midlands Trinity Mirror plc

"Gareth was highly motivating and was a pleasure working with him. His CV is the best I have ever come across as a speaker and I look forward to working with him again." - Andy, All About Tourism
