His drive, spirit and determination had the whole audience mesmerised for the whole session. The talk fitted in very well with the context of the day and please let Geoff know that the feedback was fantastic." M&S Money

"Thank you for delivering a fantastic talk. We have had some excellent feedback from dealers who have been using words such as "epic" and "inspirational" with regard to your talk, so I think we can safely say that it was very well received!" Suzuki

"10/10. Lots of positive feedback about Geoff’s speech. Very engaging.  Self-effacing.  Entertaining and inspiring at the same time and pitched at exactly the right level for the audience. From a personal point of view as the event organiser, Geoff was great to work with and really added something special to the gala dinner." The Environment Agency

"A huge thank you for your after dinner speech on Friday night.  It was a very successful evening and the feedback from guests has been very positive.  Your speech was perfect, moving, inspirational and humorous- many congratulations." - RICS

"The conference went well and was hugely enriched by your presence and wonderful presentation.  Throughout my (long!) career, I have run many events and had to evaluate them and their impact.  Never before have I recorded a 100% ‘excellent’ for the keynote speaker."

"The place is buzzing today with people sharing their response/feelings to what you had to say. The words ‘Inspirational’ ‘motivating’ ‘emotional’ have been used over and over in the evaluation forms along with comments as to how staff will now respond to the challenges that they face." Shropshire NHS PCT

‘It was an excellent day and Geoff’s presentation was most definitely a highlight.  I looked around the room when he was presenting and there wasn’t one person who wasn’t transfixed and I know from speaking to delegates afterwards that many were not only holding back their emotions but incredibly inspired by his journey in life.  I’ve seen Geoff present twice now and would never tire of hearing from him - so humble yet humorous and so ordinary but incredible." - CMG

Charming, witty and entertaining, the lasting memory of the day, that will be carried by all well into the future is Geoff Holt - a true star.’ - Exchange Chambers
