"I want to thank Simon so much for his fantastic contribution to the judging of the Awards and the wonderful way he came across at the event.  His presentation was so engaging and the accompanying slides were hilarious.  I’ve had so much feedback from guests since saying how much they loved listening to Simon’s speech."
Narelle Clayton, Events Manager UK/Europe, Tourism New Zealand
