"I’ve worked with Neil several times and have always been delighted with his inspiring, fun approach to communication training.  But I’ve been really impressed by how he has managed to bring his unique energy and humour to virtual sessions, so that people are totally engaged, laughing as they learn" - **Michelle T, Vice-President of Global Marketing, Intuit QuickBooks, California

"I met Neil a while back and have signed him up to run a number of skills-based workshops with different teams of different sizes and seniority. His informed and entertaining approach becomes a really rewarding way to build the team and their confidence. More recently he had the added challenge of engaging the group from all corners of the globe through Zoom. He did so with flying colours."
**Dawn Farren, Head of Insights, Pepsi Lipton JV at Unilever
