" Danny delivered on every aspect. He was flexible with timings / plans for the day, his presentation was well thought-out and delivered, and he engaged with the audience very well. Not only was he popular and easy to talk to at the event, but he also engaged with the guests before and after the event on social media. We would recommend Danny to anyone holding a corporate event. Many in the audience commented that he is the best presenter we have had. He stuck around for drinks after the event and was inundated with postive comments from the guests. His jokes were spot on for the crowd, and they all enjoyed it. "
