"We were very pleased with speech day. Greg gave a great speech and I’m sure the children will remember the phrase “fat don’t fly” for years to come! He was very generous with his time meeting the children, posing for photographs, etc after his speech. Thank you for your efficient organisation."
Adelaide - Heath Mount School

“A quick email to thank Greg again for everything he did on 7th November at British Rowing's training base. SAS couldn't have been happier and feedback from athletes and staff has been absolutely glowing.” Tim, rEvolution

“Greg was bloody wonderful! Brought a real energy to the room with his personality and active engagement of the audience. He was a strong end to the day and having him stay to present the awards to the colleagues was a wonderful gesture making that moment even more special for them. A great story, lots of humour and nice anecdotes all told incredibly eloquently and with a great smile! Opened up the room for questions which went down really well, and he definitely won the room over! 50% of the room (at least) were ‘drooling’! Such a gentleman too. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, pre, during and post the event…he even gave one of the team a lift to the station! The post event feedback on Greg’s session has been resoundingly positive. People still talking about it! So a huge personal thanks to him from me – he absolutely made an important conference a very enjoyable and memorable one. Priceless. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone wanting an uplifting close to their conference. Great value for money.”Andy, Greencore Northampton

"All went well thanks, the boys were a big hit with the ladies, and Simon had a full dancefloor for his DJ set. All pretty easy to work with as well. Greg was superb, such a nice guy, he had a standing ovation when he came in after our intro !! I will definitely use him again if the relevant conference needs someone like that. Top bloke." - Bidford Events
