    The speaker was absolutely delighted with the event and Daliso’s set, they were very happy.


    Daliso was absolutely fantastic. From the initial briefing call, it was clear that he’d done his research and really understood what the client was trying to achieve. On the day, he got there early to listen to the other sessions and speakers. The client really appreciated this and it clearly helped with his understanding about the event, audience and messaging… he delivered a perfect mix of anecdotes, opinion and comedy linking directly to the event theme and messaging. We really couldn’t have asked for more of Daliso. Please do pass on our thanks and we look forward to working with him again soon.


    Just a note to tell you that Daliso went down extremely well on Friday, and I received many positive comments afterwards. I wanted my audience to have a good laugh, and that’s what he gave us. I also enjoyed his company at the lunch table very much.


    The client was really pleased. They said he was brilliant, the crowd loved him and he was exactly what they were looking for.


    Daliso went down so well with the audience and adapted his set to the charity audience and had them in stitches for pretty much most of it. Would recommend him to the rest of my team
