Chick Media & Marketing (on behalf of Baltimore Technologies)
"Your wit and comic delivery had everyone laughing including our International delegates. I was amazed how much knowledge and understanding you grasped about the company from the limited literature and a short discussion."
Kerryanne York, Event Manager
SG Cowen Investment Banking
"You managed just the right note, which was no easy feat considering the diversity of nationalities present - at my table alone there were Scandinavians, Hungarians, a South African, Americans and Japanese - all roaring with laughter. "
Gillian Hanley, Executive Assistant for and on behalf of the directors
Lotus (Berlin 1999)
"...You were a fundamental part of making the Euro Beacon Awards Dinner a great success. You had the senior management of Lotus (US and EMEA) crying with laughter. You delivered delightfully, to a brief, in front of a world-wide audience."
Diana Claridge, Business Partner Program Manager
"...The speech itself was topical, interesting, and cleverly constructed as well as being presented with flair and timing...It was received extremely well by our multi national audience."
Tony Russell, Director
"The fact that you had tailored your speech towards our industry, and some of our guests, made the whole thing feel very special. In a room full of different nationalities, you managed to encompass them all and make everyone laugh at themselves and each other."
Catherine Atkins, Event Manager
"It is not easy to address an unknown audience particularly when it is multi-lingual. I thought your delivery and badinage was excellent and amused everyone."
Lionel T. Anthony, Director
"Graham researched our company and, with a minimum of fuss or inconvenience, then managed to pitch his speech at just the right level, which was quite an achievement, considering the diversity of the audience both in terms of personalities and nationalities. "
John Martin, Director
Lotus (Berlin 2000)
"I believe the effort you invest in understanding our business and the audience, building and tailoring your material to hit on subjects that are relevant to them, and delivering it with great clarity, all contribute to your success with this international audience - right down to the detail of the cultural composition of the audience as to which jokes would work, and how best to deliver them. I also appreciated the time you spent reviewing some of the material with me to ensure that it was meeting the right balance for our company, and that we would be comfortable with it - I think this meant you hit the exact mark with the Business Partners - they loved it."
David Thorpe, Manager, EMEA PartnerWorld for Software
"Graham's preparation was excellent. His performance on the day was exactly what we needed. He kept our presenters on track, between each presentation he kept the audience entertained, asked appropriate questions and reinforced our business messages. This was all done in a highly professional manner and the humour was appropriate to an international audience and well received. "
Deborah Lee, Executive Manager to VP EMEA Partner Organisation
"I knew that you would be able to turn what otherwise could be a wake, into a light-hearted and memorable evening. I am delighted by the way you were able to adapt your material and make it appropriate for an International audience. It was good to see the Russians and the French laughing at the same jokes. "
Michele Jobling, General Manager UK / Ireland
"Once again - another superb performance. I was particularly impressed with the way that you managed to cross the cultural barriers and raise a smile from our French and German compatriots. "
Andy Hedges, Managing Director
IBM United Kingdom
"I was not only impressed with Graham's ability to transform and translate pieces of 'localised' information into very humorous material, but also how he managed to keep an entire international audience amused for over fifty minutes! He tackled a variety of topics in a highly-amusing, constructive and very professional manner. Graham's brief was to help break down barriers amongst our team and engender team morale and spirit. The positive feedback from the entire audience showed that Graham's performance had really helped to achieve this."
Nick Martin, e-business Solutions Executive
Schering Health Care (Paris)
"The feedback we received from local Schering representatives attending the broadcast in 30 US cities indicated our audience of prominent American physicians thoroughly enjoyed the programme. Your experience in live television and commitment to excellence was evident throughout. I am particularly grateful for the tutoring you gave our field reporters. I am convinced that it was your coaching and calming influence that permitted them to perform like seasoned veterans."
Harold L. Krell, Executive Vice President - Health Learning Systems
