TESTIMONIALS

"Jeremy has led some incredible media and crisis training for Hilton across Europe, with 97% of participants rating the training as very good or excellent. In addition, Jeremy has produced some very high quality films for the company, both internal corporate and external consumer facing material. Jeremy is incredibly professional, with great technical knowledge and people skills. As a result he is a great partner, highly respected by myself and the wider business."

Jules Kerby, Hilton Worldwide

"Jeremy provided presentation training for our company. The interactive session was highly informative and left us all with some great actionable feedback on how we can improve. What was most useful was that (as requested) Jeremy didn't pull any punches - a rare but much-appreciated skill. I'd definitely recommend him."

Jon Young, BDRC

"First class moderator of the annual Barclays Travel Forum, attended by circa 300 senior industry figures, for a number of years."

Chris Lee, Barclays

"Jeremy is a wonderful moderator, with all the professional craft required to tease out pertinent and salient information from speakers, whilst ensuring our seminars remained on course, relevant and professional, punctuated with genius touches of light-hearted humour."

Byron Shirto, Latin American Travel Association

"I used Jeremy to introduce our senior team to press and PR handling in the event of a crisis. The day that Jeremy pulled together was exceptional, fun, engaging and took all of the team out of their comfort zone in a manner that generated enthusiasm, commitment and a memorable day. It also provided real strategies and plans that they could take away. If you want individual or group training in PR and media skills, I think Jeremy is about the best you can get."

Christopher Preston, Big Bus Tours

"We recently commissioned Jeremy for two projects: moderating at consumer event and presentation skills training. Both carried out with his usual attention to detail, reliably professional and with his good humour to put folks at their ease. Well done."

Lynn Scrivener, Ramblers Holidays

"Jeremy has moderated our Annual Travel Agents Conference now for the last 6 years. Jeremy is a pleasure to work with and is a true professional. He takes time to understand our business and our requirements. It's important for Jeremy to ensure every detail is covered and so his planning and preparation for our events has been excellent and no stone has been left unturned. Professional, passionate, enthusiastic, trustworthy, loyal and hard working!"

Cherie Richards, The Global Travel Group

"The session you conducted was outstanding, and you provided us with such a great behind-the-scenes viewpoint of how decisions are made, and how to approach them. The hands on approach utilised by you is extremely impactful and far more beneficial than anything one could learn on a theoretical basis. We thank you for your time, and we will certainly be using you for future refresher courses."

Gavin Tollman, The Travel Corporation

"We've used Jeremy and his team for media training over the last couple of years. He knows the business intimately and certainly puts execs of all levels through their paces in a series of hands-on exercises, all linked to pre-determined messaging. If you are promoting or protecting a brand I can recommend Jeremy highly."

Stuart Leven, Royal Caribbean Cruises

"Jeremy is a fantastic moderator who we have invited back every year to host the Theatres at our consumer events. He is always incredibly well prepared, passionate about the travel trade and good humoured, putting our speakers at ease. He has facilitated insightful Q&As with a variety of celebrity speakers including Michael Portillo and Ronan Keating, coaxing questions out of the audience and making the sessions upbeat and entertaining."

Holly Jaggers, The Daily Telegraph

"Red Carnation Hotels arranged for Jeremy to run three half day media workshops for senior operational staff in our UK, Guernsey and Irish properties. The audiences were very different in their expectations and approach to the workshops and the topic. Jeremy, with his energetic style, was able to deliver a consistent message and provide great advice to all the groups. Feedback from all the groups was very positive."

Simon Royce, Red Carnation Hotels

"Jeremy is very skilled at getting the best out of people, whether they are at junior or managing director level. His vast experience across a broad spectrum of media ensures a realistic approach, whilst showing how to deliver the right message in the right tone to the right media audience. He instils confidence and provides direct, constructive feedback."

Michele Andjel, P&O Cruises

"We worked with Jeremy on a media training programme across Europe, Middle East and Africa and have been very pleased with the results. Jeremy was always extremely well prepared, enthusiastic and on top of his game in every session. All our spokespeople were full of praise for the training they received - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

Kate Aldridge, Travelport
