Testimonials – Conference Clients

“We recently ran a strategic conference with our partner customers. For it to run well we needed someone to manage the flow of the meeting from start to finish including the informal sessions in the evening. Shaun was brilliant - clearly an expert in his field - his organisation, timings and interventions were nothing but impeccable. Value well and truly added.” Simon Winstanley National Sales Manager Andy Aylward, Customer Business Development Manager has the final word: “Shaun came highly recommended when we required a Facilitator for our recent customer conference and we were very pleased with our choice. From our very first meeting he showed the professionalism, enthusiasm and energy we were hoping for, from the initial planning stages through to rehearsals and facilitation of our conference. As well as introducing our individual speakers he also held a Q & A session with our guest speaker Carl Fogarty and our Senior Management team.We have since used Shaun to deliver a motivational workshop to our sales team which was very well received and we have already reserved his services for our 2016 conference.”

“Shaun combines an exceptional mix of business knowledge and stage presence. This really matters to an audience of this calibre. He immediately connected with the audience and formed a link between the speakers before delivering a well observed, intelligent summary of his own to round off the morning. The feedback following the event exceeded our very high expectations. Knowing Shaun was there allowed us all to relax and get on with our own roles, without running the whole day too. Having Shaun there was transformational to the day – to me, to the delegates and also to the speakers, who felt clearer about what needed to happen.”

“We needed a presenter with credibility. Having used Shaun earlier in the year on a series of Dealer Seminars we felt that he would ideally fit the bill” He added “Shaun genuinely made a massive difference and was the ultimate professional throughout the planning, rehearsal and delivery process. During the evening event Shaun used his extended repertoire and transformed into Compare and Voice of God to introduce the various entertainers. We certainly got our money's worth!”

SEAT – Conference Speaker “We were looking for behavioral change in a particular area and we had heard that Shaun had delivered a similar talk at our sister company Audi which had received excellent feedback” “Shaun threw himself fully into the project and even carried out some ‘mystery shops’ to ensure that he was fully prepared for his session. It has been clear from the feedback we have received from our delegates, that our decision to use him was fully justified and we will definitely be using him again.”

“Shaun worked with our presenters prior to the conference and offered advice on content and coaching on presentation skills. During the conference he introduced our speakers, facilitated various debates and Q & A sessions and interviewed our Managing Director in a ‘Michael Parkinson’ style interview.” Sue Foster - Marketing and Business Development Manager “Having set the standard last year, Shaun helped us deliver an even better event to our delegates who had come from around the world with high expectations after the previous years.”

“We used Shaun for the first time recently at a conference for a major blue chip client and following very positive feedback, we have re-booked him for their next event. He met with the client, offering suggestions which were then implemented, organised rehearsals and facilitated the conference professionally, liaising with us throughout. We will definitely be recommending other clients to use Shaun to facilitate their events.”

“I needed a Presenter for my conference who understood our business needs which he completely tuned into. Our CEO commented that Shaun was the best he had seen. His professional handling of the open Q and A session between our staff and our Directors was outstanding. The delegates rated him as ‘excellent’ in the post-conference survey, so I was a very happy man. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”

“We have used Shaun a number of times over the past few years, both as a Conference host at our Business Centre Conferences and as MC at our Annual Awards Ceremony and, indeed, have just re-booked him again for next year. Not only does Shaun manage the role extremely well, he also contributes to the planning and structure of the event, giving a very valuable external perspective and good understanding of where humour will work. He is a true professional and great support. I am more than happy to recommend him to any busniness’.”

“I have no hesitation in highly recommending Shaun as one of the best Presenters I have worked with. He has now facilitated at 4 of our events and each time has brought innovation to the day. He really supports me during the planning stages and ensures that our speakers are fully prepared to deliver. His sense of humour, engagement with the audience and understanding of business issues are his major strengths.”

“I would describe Shaun as an ‘MC with content’. Each year we have a major sailing event for our corporate customers and DCUK senior directors and for the past 5 years we have used Shaun as MC. The event runs all day commencing at 8 am with afternoon activities closing at 4.30 pm. By 8.00 pm Shaun has turned the stories of the day into humorous anecdotes in the evening to entertain the audience. He also ‘compares’ the evening activities, introducing our senior executives, guest speakers and the evening’s entertainment. We have used Shaun on various event for the past 5 years and every time he manages to deliver an extraordinary fresh performance, Taking into consideration how short a time he has to prepare he’s incredible.  Each year we obviously consider if we should change the format and the Presenter, but the feedback we receive about Shaun is always so positive, we don’t feel the need. We have already booked him for next year. Shaun was also a major part of the launch of our new C Class where he presented to all our sales force over a 3 week period in Seville. He is also continually involved with the training of our internal and external sales staff throughout the UK and the feedback is always very positive.”

“The feedback about Shaun from our Managers following our European Conference at Celtic Manor was excellent. Shaun helped us bring our Conference together during the planning stages, providing feed back on overall positioning of the presentations. On the day he was an excellent MC, providing a sense of humour and keeping the day moving to programme.”

Brian Whitty, Chairman

“We have used Shaun regularly for the past 4 years. There are many facets to Shaun - serious, humorous, motivational and entertaining and he mixes these into each event at appropriate times. I particularly notice his skill if a conference hits a low due to ‘death by power point’ from some speakers. He steps in to subtly re-energise the room and re-focus the audience’. He genuinely understands how a business works and the need to deliver a professional, well structured event. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to others.”

Andy Simpson, National Corporate Manager

“Shaun helped us plan and deliver our first major company conference and I have to say the end result was way above my expectations, I didn’t believe a conference was the right thing for a company of 25 people but more for the 500 plus companies. It was great to get everybody together and let them know where we want to take the company and reward people for their hard work. I don’t think the results would have been anywhere near as good without Shaun’s help.”

Mark Hindle, Managing Director
MNH Vehicle Contracts Ltd

“Shaun turned up to the rehearsals of our conference and immediately switched on to our needs. Our senior executives were really impressed with his summary at the end of the conference itself, especially as he had not worked in our industry. We have also used him to train and motivate our staff in the areas of Customer Service and Presentation Skills with great success.”

Stephen Hobbs Jones, Director
Gasforce (part of Connaught plc)

“I have worked with Shaun on numerous events over a 5 year period. He combines efficiency and charisma with a great sense of humour. He also has a special knack of putting people at ease. I would have no hesitation in booking him again and recommending him to other event companies.”

“I have been working with Shaun since he has been involved with corporate communications. He has helped me on several projects as Conference Facilitator, Guest Speaker and Motivational Trainer. He has also branched into presenting corporate videos and I have received excellent feedback from my clients on his work. Shaun has the ability to instantly understand the brief and he brings an extra spark to each situation. If you need a person who can think on his feet and constantly adapt to the situations some projects present you with I would highly recommend Shaun.”

“I first booked Shaun after seeing him host a Lexus Conference I was attending. He really excelled at our conference when he turned a potentially tricky Q and A session into a very positive experience for both the audience and our Directors. We will be definitely booking him for our next conference”

He is an asset to any event team with his insight to the client needs and clear and engaging interpretation of the client messages to the audience.

Dyson “We needed all our staff to go through a major culture change which many of them were resisting mainly due to fear of change. Shaun presented to them all and convinced them to step outside their comfort zones. He was very motivational which was just what was required, at that moment in time. The feedback was excellent and I would highly recommend him to other businesses needing the same inspiration and motivational elements added to their armoury.”

As a facilitator he puts presenters at ease and quickly engages the audience.

Throughout content preparation, presenter training and facilitation of the live event, he is a pleasure to work alongside with a welcome sense of humour when the pressure is on.”

“Shaun Price is an inspirational presenter; an expert in sales and leadership, humble, humorous and extremely professional in his delivery. Given the most challenging of briefs he found a unique angle that energised and motivated our audiences across the UK. We tried to book him again for our national conference next year and were very disappointed to find that someone else got there first!”

ServiceMASTER “Shaun overcame the fears of the many doubters at our 2008 seminar. Although viewed by many as an outsider to our Company he managed to provide business information in a humorous and interactive way. His motivational presentation scored the highest marks in the post seminar feedback. He is top of the list for MC at our 50th Year in the UK Conference due in 2009. It is with great confidence that I would recommend him to any company.”

He took our conference to another level from previous events (he even greeted our delegates from around the world in 14 different languages at the start of the conference!). His blend of business knowledge, motivational comments and humour are his main strengths and we will certainly be using him again.”
