Testimonials

Dominic Colenso’s virtual keynote was a hit with our audience. The content was full of actionable takeaways and Dominic’s experience as a screen actor shines through on video. The feedback was so good we immediately rebooked him for a second session, where he customised and realigned his content for a specific industry sector. Highly recommended

Steve Lindsey - MD, National Sales Conference

You know when the speaker is good when he has a group of newly qualified accountants all up out of their seats and asking each other 'are you looking at me' in a Robert De Niro style! We’ve engaged Dominic to speak to our finance team several times and he really knows his stuff – he makes it fun and simple to understand. If you want a dynamic speaker for your event, with content that delegates can immediately put into practice, Dominic Colenso delivers.

Mark Laine Toner - Head of Strategic Finance, Coop Food

Dominic Colenso made an impact! We engaged him to speak at our Business Forum in Riga for 500 of Latvia's most switched on Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs. His speech was full of practical tools and he really knows how to perform and inspire an audience to follow him. Highly recommend!

Agnese Zagata - Business Conference Organiser, Investment and Development Agency of Latvia

His speech was thought provoking, motivating and packed full of simple but powerful tips and takeaways that were easy to implement. As one of the organisers of this event, I would highly recommend Dominic. He was great to work with, organised, professional and delivered a captivating speech that hit all the right notes.

Sue Angus - NAP Conference Organiser, CIPD

Everyone really enjoyed the session on leadership communication that you delivered on Zoom. You have prompted the Senior Leadership Team to adopt different ways of working with each other and their teams, as well as considering their remote/on-line presence and how they show up to engage their audience.

Paula Mallett - Business Support Manager, Department for Work & Pensions

As an organisation going through significant change, we were seeking an innovative and dynamic speaker to support our colleagues in developing their communication skills. Dominic Colenso’s IMPACT keynote laid the foundation for our colleagues to do just that. The mix of acting skills, neuroscience and common sense made it impactful, memorable and above all a highly enjoyable and empowering experience.
