Emma Oliver Corporate Communications Manager explains further:
“We needed a Facilitator with a business background and good communication skills who could engage and challenge our high level audience and work closely with our Directors, before and during the event. Shaun came highly recommended and fitted the bill perfectly”
“On the first day he interviewed and introduced our various in-house speakers and challenged the delegates during follow-up workshops.
On the second day he facilitated a session about ‘Authenticity’ with our keynote speaker Joe Pine, one of America’s leading business gurus, and on the final day Shaun delivered his own keynote speech on ‘Inspirational Leadership’.
Group Director – HR & Corporate Communications, Karen Geary added:
“Shaun worked closely with our CEO and our team during the planning stages of the conference, when his advice definitely helped us shape the event.. His humour, communication skills and business knowledge became evident during this time and were used to full effect when he actually facilitated the conference, fully justifying our decision to use him”
