Jeremy Black MBE

“Fans of James Bond must get hold of this superb book by distinguished historian Jeremy Black. Black explores the enduring global fascination with Ian Fleming’s incredible creation, the legendary superspy 007, who comes to the defense of the Britons in this most recent dangerous dark age. With insight and flair, Blackrelates the Bond books and movies produced over the past sixty years to today’s kaleidoscopic real-world nightmares of superpower confrontation and international terrorism. In Jeremy Black, Mr. Bond has finally met his match!”

Inge Woudstra

"Inge delivered a thoroughly professional, thought provocative and stimulating session. The workshop was repeated twice during the afternoon and both slots overran due to numerous questions and interesting debate generated by the participants. I would thoroughly recommend Inge as a speaker or facilitator at any workshop related to gender and diversity."

Guy Clapperton

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.
