of presentations, both on the circuit and

on television, and none of the presenters

deliver it in the way you do.  You are awesome.”

have a beautiful way of getting it across. 

Excellent. 

You should be in broadcasting.”

and the event was a super highlight  in our programme

of events this year."

it as brilliantly as you. I am inspired.

"A huge thank you for the most fantastic presentation. You have a real skill in explaining things simply without being patronising, comparing complex things with relative example and still keeping the wonder and excitement throughout. That is a very rare mix, and the rapt faces in the audience were testament to that. As was the feedback afterwards - everyone felt similarly educated and inspired and commented on your fantastic presentation.We couldn't ask for anything more than that."

your presentation last night at the Worthing

some point in the future for another presentation."
