“Conor was the perfect closing keynote speaker for our conference in Málaga, Spain. Frequently very funny, sometimes irreverent, but always with a serious message, he kept our delegates well entertained. His quirky take, even on mundane matters such as leaving your room before checking out of a hotel, showed us a completely different perspective, and many of us were dancing on mushrooms the next morning as we left the hotel. As our delegates put it,   – Fantastic! – Very clever and certainly got message across – Excellent speaker – Fabulous! – compelling, entertaining and memorable” Site Europe

“The fact that you take the time to research the market and our delegate needs prior to preparing your presentation was much appreciated” – Marketing Week UK                                                                                                                                                                                ” You did a terrific job at the conference on Tuesday. …I just wanted you to know you were the outstanding speaker on the day – and received rave reviews. Some of the comments received back on the questionnaire in regard to your presentation were:”   ‘Worth attending for this alone’   ‘Easy to listen to/ motivational, interesting’   ‘Excellent presentation and delivery’ /   ‘Interesting and inspirational- thought provoking’ Brands in Foodservice conference, London

“We don’t often invite speakers back for two years in a row… They gave you THE highest ratings of all the speakers. Bravo!”  Centaur Conferences, UK
