"What an incredible speech! He [Bob Geldof] really is the best orator I have ever seen.”
Mike Firth - YIBC
"Just a quick note to say thanks to you and your team for your help in getting Bob to speak at the Google conference earlier this week."
"Bob [Geldof] really did an amazing job of tailoring the talk to this audience and I imagine that's a part of the magic that he delivers every time (and how great was that when he showed the audience yesterday's Toronto Mail). As I mentioned, it's really a pleasure when a very intelligent person speaks to an audience as if they're on his level. That's not often the norm and it's refreshing. Also, I could be wrong but it seemed to me that he enjoyed challenging himself to create at least part of this talk without a net and on the fly. It was great to see him create it."
Response Expo, San Diego
"We ask our delegates to complete evaluation forms on the speakers etc. Bob received the best marks in the history of our event (higher than Bill Clinton!). The top mark is 5 but people were crossing that out and putting a 6 or even a 10! Great message , great delivery , fully deserved his standing ovation ! Thanks to you for making sure it worked and to Bob for taking time out from G8. Awesome!"
