Paul was fantastic…I really mean that…he was fantastic. Would recommend him to anyone. I have received emails from clients raving about how great he was and thanking us for inviting them. He definitely opened my eyes to a few things. Thanks.
He was exactly the right speed for the audience. A good mix of down to earth and sophistication. Related himself well to the audience. The feedback I had was that he was the best speaker most had seen.
Both the retailers and the Lend Lease group found your speech fascinating, not just from a business point of view but also a personal point of view.
Excellent. A very professional and accommodating presenter. Nothing was a problem (even up to 5 minutes before guests were due to arrive and the slide show wasn’t working). A pleasure to work with.
