What Our Clients say about working with Paul:

Client organisations consistently praise the experience of collaborating with Paul as both a speaker and chair for their events.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Paul chair the Data Insight Leaders Summit. His in-depth knowledge of the industry and slick delivery really elevated the conference experience and was fundamental in providing engaging and thought-provoking sessions for a very senior audience of Head’s of Data Science and Advanced Analytics. Many attendees commented on Paul’s excellent delivery of conference proceedings.

Lucy Bradley

Divisional Director, Worldwide Business Research

Paul has hosted four briefings for us, delivering keynote presentations and moderating discussion groups at each. His work was of the highest quality, and the feedback from delegates was glowing, both in terms of the content delivered, but also in the presentation style and facilitation of discussion. Of equal importance, Paul has also been a pleasure to work with on these projects, and has been extremely flexible to any changing demands..”

Neil Davey

Managing Editor, MyCustomer & Business Division at Sift

Paul was one of our speakers at the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s #CIMSmartArt conference. His speech was very well received with lots of positive feedback. I personally learnt a lot from Paul’s speech. Really rate Paul as a speaker and coach. He has vast experience of leading the Insight teams and making a tangible impact on the bottom line. A very effective speaker with a vast level of experience. I recommend Paul as a coach and a speaker having known him for some time and having listened to his speeches.

How to speak to Paul:

“I had the pleasure of seeing Paul speak at a MyCustomer/Royal Mail event. He was informative, using analogies and simple explanations of difficult concepts, and with a good sense of both humour and timing to ensure that all the audience were engaged throughout. In conversations afterwards, it was clear that they had a new, heightened level of understanding about the topic and felt empowered to make positive change. That’s something many speakers fail to achieve. Paul will give any audience an understanding that will bring their business much closer to their customers. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”
