Some reviews of Dominic Holland
Professional in every aspect
I can’t imagine engaging anyone else as helpful or easy to work with. Professional in every aspect of our dealings, he told us not to worry at the very start, and that’s how it was. Our event was such a great success and we were delighted.
Dominic was absolutely fantastic and to quote our Technical Committee Chairman ‘was the best after dinner speaker we have had’ and we have had some very good ones from you. He is a credit to your organisation and we would highly recommend him. He had his audience worked out very quickly and kept their attention for the whole of his set, there were no private conversations going on whilst he was on stage! He also threw himself wholeheartedly into our raffle draw and made it very entertaining indeed with his quips regarding the gifts on offer – in particular the ‘teapot’ which was won by The Hit Man.
