“Being briefed to write a funny speech on the subject of safety at work for an important international audience of senior managers and directors was not an easy task. And yet your speech was excellently written, pertinent, sharp and, above all, full of funny jokes and anecdotes that went down a storm. Your efforts made my life a whole lot easier - so much so that I will be using it again!”
Graham Cooke, General Manager, Unilever.
“You had a huge challenge on your hands for an important client evening. You needed to be a witty and engaging speaker, event compère and auctioneer with some of our key clients by entertaining and making them feel valued while, at the same time, also getting them to bid as much money as possible for a charity auction. You not only managed to raise a lot of money, but you made us all laugh and kept us entertained before, during and after the event which was a great success as a result. Thank you. You would be my first choice for any event we hold in the future which requires a guest speaker.”
Rachel Harris, Manager, New Business, Bank of Scotland.
“Seán's media training techniques are excellent as was the feedback from our staff. He is able to relate to his audiences easily and brings colour and interest to the whole experience.

Stephen Swain, Communications Manager, South West Water
“Seán was a fantastic investment for our pioneering conference in South Africa, both personally and professionally, as he gave so much of himself for the benefit of the delegates and the event organisers in and out of the conference hall. He was a great presenter who helped us achieve our aims with a wonderful mix of understanding, encouragement and great wit. He has the unique ability to engage with people of all cultures and meet them at their level whether in a group or a one-to-one setting.”
Edward Okundi, CEO, Leadership Shines Through.

“It was a pleasure having you here in Dubai. You inspired and entertained a very varied audience in a way we could all understand and learn from. You showed us by example of how it should and could be done. I look forward to coming on more of your workshops.”
Mohammad Ahmad Bazargan, Senior Relationship Officer, National Bank of Abu Dhabi.
“The feedback from everyone was fantastic. You really inspired and entertained us all with a mixture of passion, insight and wit about how to communicate effectively to win business. It's not surprising therefore that, after your speech, people were queuing up to talk to you and to ask how to book your training workshops.”
Anne Morris, Worcester Business Breakfast Club.

“I really enjoyed your presentation. If I could speak to an audience at 10% of your level I would be delighted! I started my business in January and sent off a press release to my local paper in an attempt to get a kick start and, of course, a bit of free advertising. The response – nothing. I picked up on a few things you said last Thursday and revamped my release and sent it to them again. I have just gotten off the phone having had a long chat with the business editor and the photographer is coming on Monday! This is as a direct result of me paying attention to you last week.”
John Bates, Travel Counsellors.
“Your media profiling encapsulated everything about me, both personally and professionally, in a compellingly colourful way. It certainly therefore got the media coverage I needed to help me grow my business because it was so professionally done - in fact, so much so, that whole chunks of it were copied word for word by the journalist in a top magazine which is read by my main target audience! Thank you.”
Shamus Ogilvy, Owner of The Ogilvy Smokery.
“Seán is an intuitive, resourceful and highly intelligent presenter and interviewer. He also possesses a wicked and infectious sense of humour.

“With your press releases and handling of the media, you effectively countered the effects of widespread and inappropriate negative publicity on my reputation during a legal appeal against a criminal conviction. I was impressed with the speed of your actions. Your understanding of your business is thorough. Your writing ability is especially good, being able to get the message across in a concise, easy and persuasive style. This, coupled with your shrewd awareness of visual impact, meant that news articles were accompanied with appropriate pictures to endorse the message. Thank you.”
