Excellent feedback for Jonathan Shaw

Jonathan ShawJonathan Shaw, expert on cyber security and one of the most distinguished soldiers of his generation, has once again received excellent feedback for his latest keynote.

Here’s what Tony Henderson, co-founder of Oxford Technology Media & Finance Network, had to say on Jonathan’s performance:

“We were extremely fortunate to have Jonathan Shaw as our guest speaker at our New Year Networking event in January. I had been longing to do an event on Leadership for some time, but to have Jonathan speak on the topic raised the level of our event to new heights. Jonathan’s extraordinary insight into a range of topics including asking the right questions, establishing a bond of trust and how to command effectively really resonated with our audience. His participation in significant historical events served to illustrate vividly the points he was making.

Jonathan reminded us all in business world how we have become very distracted by technology, egos and money, also how we so easily forget the human side that actually makes up an organisation. For a man who has achieved so much and made such a huge contributions to our armed forces and our nation’s history, I thought his humility and simplicity of approach were astonishing. In over nine years of running executive level events, I have yet to find a speaker of a higher calibre than Jonathan. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have an audience with Jonathan will come away richer in thought, fired with intent and inspired to do better. I know I was.”

Michael Portillo wows audience again

Michael Portillo is one of the most recognisable figures in British politics in recent memory. A prominent former MP and Cabinet Minister, and now a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph and host of BBC2’s Daily Politics, he’s a man comfortable with addressing audiences of any size, on a variety of topics. He spoke at an event held by a global outsourcing firm earlier this month, and their comments speak for themselves; “Michael was spot on, the perfect balance of humour vs. serious content, there was a huge amount of laughter from the audience in all the right places and we’ve received some fantastic feedback, from both our clients and consultants. We overran on the night but Michael took this completely in his stride.”

Rave review for extreme swimmer Lewis Pugh

Here at Chartwell, we love working with Lewis Pugh, the extreme swimmer and environmental campaigner, and we were thrilled to hear that he wowed his audience again last week. Addressing a major asset management firm last month, he was praised as “an exceptional individual”, whose “leadership and humility speak volumes” to the “strength of his character”.

Lewis first shot to fame when he completed a 1km swim at the North Pole…in nothing but a Speedo. Since then he has pioneered more swims around famous landmarks than any other swimmer in history. Each of these seemingly impossible feats was done to raise awareness about the vulnerability of water and its importance to humanity.
