First class act - professional and went the extra mile. Declan is a joy to work with.

Insurance Insider

Declan gave an entertaining introduction to the day with some relevant examples. Only downside was that with the questions the session overran by about 20 minutes.

Chartered Insurance Institute

Declan was excellent! The tone and content of his presentation was spot-on and he applied his charm and superb facilitation skills to ensure the panels were both informative and enjoyable. Ten out of ten!

Go Global for Enterprise Nation

Declan was great. He took a real interest in the event and I thought the content of his speech was relevant and topical. I would definitely use him again for a dinner of that sort and though he related especially well to the audience.


Declan was a star. He put the contributors at ease and kept the proceedings flowing…his jovial, yet authoritative style worked well, and he held people to account when necessary…we'll be using him again!

ABI Motor Conference

Thank you for hosting our conference in London last week. Your presentation was extremely informative and well-received by delegates... Thank you for your contribution and for helping to make the conference such a success. I hope we can work together again in the future.

Claire McMahon, Marketing Executive, Bibby Financial Services

Just a quick note to thank Declan for Friday. The feedback we’ve had was that it was the best one we’ve done, and that Declan did a great job particularly of dealing with hecklers during the quiz! We would certainly use and recommend him again in the future, and thank you and the team at NMP for making the build-up so smooth and easy to deal with.
