Thank you so much for your motivational talk yesterday. You are so full of life and positive energy that it is understandable how you reached your goals. During the recognition, you had the energy for each person you greeted and didn’t lower your excitement for anyone; it was so nice to see. You looked like you enjoyed it, which makes the difference. I just enjoyed your motivational talk so much and even better than the last one you did, which was also very hard to top. I would have been happy to have seen a carbon copy of the last one too, as it was so good. Here’s looking forward to your next talk in the future."

It was a privilege to share the stage with you. You gave us a great lift. I was very taken with how much you were able to tailor your words to our organisation's work and our fundamental purpose. This is a belated, but reflected "Thank You", for having come to Torbay to do this."

"WOW - That is probably the best presentation I have seen from anybody ever! The ability to deliver a captivating and motivating presentation to an assorted group of business people and ensure that the key messages of the day were constantly woven into the presentation was one of the most professional examples of the art of delivering a presentation I have seen. A very enjoyable experience, I just wanted to let you know how well it came across. "
