You really gave our event a lift and our management team thoroughly enjoyed working with you on the day. There will be fond memories of yourself and Andy Marchant driving round the dance floor in those motorised bathtubs! It was a pleasure to work with you and many thanks for all your help and input at our event." Event Manager – Aegon
"Thank you so much for your wonderful speech at the OXPIP lunch. I have received so many calls and messages from guests saying how you brought the subject of attachment “alive” in such an entertaining way. You have an amazing talent and all of us at Oxpip are immensely grateful to you. We expect to raise more that £30,000 from the event. If we had not done it, we would have been forced to close by next spring for lack of funds. You have quite literally “saved” us."
