Gary was so personal, engaging and genuine. He needs to go on tour with this and make it into a one-man show. Fabulous!!!
Well-structured and great content. It was good to have the course structure outlined and to stick to that.
Gary did not disappoint – a totally engaging speaker, he gave us lots to think about and delivered it with humour and style.
