Some reviews of David Bryon
BIG THANKS TO YOU!
Feedback from the event has been that this was the best yet. You certainly went down very well. Your Cabin Crew safety briefing was absolutely hysterical. Many thanks, and well done.
Thank you again for your excellent presentation
Thank you again for your excellent presentation and facilitation at our Conference on Saturday. I think that’s the most productive sessions we’ve had, and also one of the most fun ones. We had an excellent response from members, and you should rightly be proud of your presentation skills.
Thanks for doing such a great job
Thanks for doing such a great job, both hosting the awards and the speech after dinner. It was well received by all those I spoke to after the event. You’re a hard act to follow – so we have had to hire an astronaut to host the event in New York next week and I’m already wondering how we can maintain the standard next year!
