TESTIMONIALS – TAILORED CORPORATE SPEAKER
As referenced elsewhere, Chatham House Rules apply to many engagements as tailored corporate speaker, hoax expert or corporate imposter due to the natures of audiences and their respective professions. Most clients, however, avail themselves as referees when requested on a one to one basis.
Quoted below are examples of others more public:
