Oli was incredible, he wowed my boss and executive team. Our chairman loved him and the feedback from the team is that he was the best part of the event. His speech was amazing and he was also an extremely talented MC who carried the event despite many last minute changes and deviations. He took my brief to heart and made the keynote really focussed on what we as a business are trying to achieve and people were very engaged.’
Oli recently spoke at our annual Business Network Live event. His presentation was inspirational, fun and informative and Oli was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend him.’
