Testimonials

Guy has integrity and intelligence when it comes to hosting an event and a genuine desire to do everything he can to make it a success. He adopts an holistic approach and is more than happy to indulge the scrupulous points of detail any decent event organiser will have in their armoury. His relaxed style is underpinned by methodical research and attention to detail. He is a pleasure to work with.

I have worked with Guy as moderator on two occasions, once for Bafta and once for the BBC. On both occasions he brought the technology and its implications to life for a non-technical audience, emphasising not only the opportunities but the managerial challenges they would have to face. Guy has a rare talent in that he is authoritative as well engaging as a moderator. He has a robust journalistic approach to his subject matter and marries this with a very personable on-stage manner.
