“... an amazingly loyal and reliably fluent and interesting speaker. Stuart is indeed a natural speaker, someone whose manner of speaking engages his listeners and holds their attention. I heard him give talks on a whole range of topics, mostly to do with the film industry and the entertainment world, though I am sure his range is wider than that now. Stuart was a star, listening precisely to what was being asked or to comments offered and always engaging in a warm and intelligent dialogue. It is also worth mentioning that his talks always produced a very lively response: the audience wanted to interact with him and engage in further discussion."
Robert, Merchant Taylors' School

"His presentation was very well organised and it included the use of lively and eye-catching videos. The students really enjoyed the whole session and many chose to stay behind to ask Stuart individual questions at the end of the talk. I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart to your organisation as a potential speaker."
Chris, St Clement Danes School

"Thank you for the extra work that you put in on the ship, we all really appreciated it …. your talks were well received".
Carole, P&O Britannia
