I just wanted to say thanks for your help with regards to Stephen. He went down a storm and I have to say that we were all worried we wouldn't be able to match Levi Roots' performance last year but I have to say he certainly did match it..and everyone loved him. He was extremely entertaining and a joy to work with. He took on board the relevance and aims of the conference and adapted it where he could...it was perfect! We'd certainly want to recommend him to other clients.

I just want to say thank you so much to you and to Stephen for such a brilliant evening on Saturday. Despite all the stress of getting it all organized it ended up being an absolutely fantastic evening. Stephen was really really funny and the auction was hilarious. My client and the rest of the audience loved it and we have received much praise for getting Stephen on board. He was also very generous and added tickets to his show as part of the auction.
