Speaking Testimonials

“Doug has a rare skill ….. the ability to talk to a large group of people in a room but make you feel as if the message is tailored solely to you. His warmth and personality are magnetic and his use of language and style of delivery are so easy to listen to and absorbing that he holds the attention of a group so well. He is able to make you feel as if you are being treated as a valued individual whilst you are part of a large corporation – an immense skill in these challenging times.”

Angela Fraser, BT

“Doug has a refreshingly honest and straight forward approach. His talk challenged our corporate thinking and I came away feeling really motivated to reassess what I can do as an individual to make a difference.”

Tamar Collis, BIG Lottery Fund

“Doug just tells it like it is with disarming simplicity and honesty.”

Jan North, Westminster City Council

“What a resounding success the event was! I can’t tell you how pleased I was at the energy and discussion your talk generated, Doug. We’d had a fair bit of hugs and cuddles throughout the event but when you came on and read your letter and discussed some of the work you’ve been doing, that streak of desire to see the right thing done was clear – and really brought people into the conversation. I’m so pleased we were able to have you speak. The effort you made with your talk, handouts, posters etc…set a very high level for our event, thank you!”

Jessica Price, BT

“I really enjoyed your presentation – engaging and amusing – and I think most of the rest of the room would agree. Great stuff – thank you!”

Lee Robinson, Rackspace

“Thanks very much for taking the time to speak with us yesterday. It was so heartening to hear from someone who is not prepared to put up with the treacle! I could tell from the networking session that you had prompted a lot of thought and discussion among the attendees.”

Jo Koroma, BT
