Speaking Testimonials

Feedback from people attending or organising my addresses
  • "Good morning Douglas, Just a short note to thank you once again for giving our speakers' programme such a good start for 2019. As always, your talk was up to date, thought-provoking and entertaining...I did enjoy seeing and chatting to you again."
  • Thank you, Douglas, for your fascinating insights.  Each presentation was fascinating and highly informative.  Perhaps to my surprise it was your last talk that topped the list.  It was a wonderful insight to a great political change, and the power of showing respect to friend and foe alike, and of repeating simple positive messages...the friendship you have shown to many of us has helped make it a very special experience.
  • Your talks have been so well received by the passengers that I have been informed that you will always be a welcome guest lecturer.
  • Your keynote address last year was such a success and so enjoyed by the 200+ members present that by popular demand I am requesting you to make yourself available to do a presentation at this year’s conference. I do hope you will be available.
  • Thank you for the marvellous presentation, Douglas. The turn-out exceeded all our expectations and we hope that we can twist your arm to share your knowledge and expertise with us again in the near future.
  • Well you made the speech of the evening…
  • Everyone LOVED your speech and I thought it was a master piece. Really great.
  • You brought many new perspectives to our members. The measure of success of any of our speakers can be gauged by the silence in the room during the talk and the extra time it needs to answer questions afterwards (quite apart from the absence of any post lunch catnapping!). The room was exceptionally quiet while you were speaking, and, as you know, I had to cut questions to ensure you were able to get away with at least some of the afternoon intact (and I didn't see anyone dozing!). This speaks for itself!
