'We've had speakers before who were amusing - but a month later no-one could remember what they'd said. Mike was very entertaining and gave us something to think about.'
Colin Black, TRICS Director.

'Mike's after-dinner speech hit just the right note, balancing the funny, the serious and the thought-provoking - and was very well-received.'
Debbie Sorkin, Director, Programmes and Services, RTPI.
