Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

Feedback from In-Person Events:

"Ollie absolutely delivered at our event. He inspired and captivated the entire audience with his after-dinner speech - the feedback has been insane. But it wasn't just the speech that made this evening so incredible - he went above and beyond by engaging on a 1-2-1 basis with every single guest that attended, he mingled and spoke to everyone. A genuine, down to earth, still humble top top guy" - The Construction Training Academy

"The event was fantastic thank you - we had a good turnout and everyone had great feedback afterwards, so an all-round success! Ollie was nice and early, very well prepared, clearly had listened to what we wanted to get out of the event (including practical takeaways) and was great to deal with." - Rosie, Wellbeing Manager EMEA, Hogan Lovells

"Ollie delivered an impactful and thought-provoking talk that resonated with our audience. We asked Ollie to speak about the topic of leadership and what it meant to him. He took our brief on board and ensured that he covered our topic by weaving it into his stories and experiences. It was also a pleasure to have him stick around for a little while after his keynote. Our guests enjoyed speaking to him directly and snapping a few selfies. We'd definitely recommend Ollie as a speaker." - Joshua, Marketing Manager, Principal People

Some great parallels between the two work environments, brought home and underpinned by a very powerful story.

Ultimately, we are all one family when in work." - Costain Group plc
