Comments & Testimonials

Great session, Julian - with simple, practical takeaways. Thank you for giving your time and energy.
Amazing passion, energy and presence. Whatever they are paying you, they should pay you more
Wow - what a pleasure to have you involved. People were bowled over by the energy and positivity of the event and they loved your session.
Claire Farrow Conference Director
Legendary. And all of giffgaff felt the same. You were all over Insta afterwards, we posted on Linkedin and plenty of people told me that this was their favourite Universigaff (we've had about 30). For me, things like this impact and nudge our 'culture' by reminding people how to behave in a world of noise and anxiety. We'd love to get you back in somehow.
Al Gill People Director
