"A very moving and motivational speech. The way he captivates his audience is inspiring. Putting everyone at ease and at the same time keeping them on the edge of their seats proves his charter and skill. The room was filled with laughter, tears and on some occasions complete silence as we all listened intently to his every word. Outstanding." - MOD

He received a standing ovation at the end of his speech." - High Peak Community Housing
