  1. Skills CFA

    Tim’s work for the event was exceptional. This wasn’t just in his hosting abilities but also in his commitment to entertain the guest apprentices etc. The apprentices all enjoyed the event and he made it extra special. We thought it was a good day and I really hope that he enjoyed it as we would definitely invite him to compere again.

  2. ITP

    Tim was fantastic, he was easy to talk to and the audience thought he was great. What was really nice was the fact that he took the time to talk to lots of people. The audience were delighted to have him with us.

  3. Food & Drink Federation

    Tim was a big hit with our audience and really conveyed the right messages for them. It’s the first time we have engaged a guest speaker for the awards and many of our members commented that Tim’s insights into skills and great presentation style gave the ceremony an extra ‘buzz’ this year. We also appreciated the time that he spent with our rather shy apprentices, making the event special for them.

  4. London Thames Gateway Development Corporation

    Tim was very well received – he is a great speaker who can engage with his audience. His anecdotal approach is one which appeals and the audience could relate to. Tim spoke with conviction and sincerity and communicated his passion and commitment in both a moving and profound way. At the completion of a physical development scheme it is often the case that launches declaim the building rather than the use. Tim’s contribution put people back into the frame and provided an uplifting and inspiring finish to the event.

  5. Stakeholder Communications

    Very happy with his response to our event brief. Extremely accommodating from arrival in Belfast until his departure. Exceptionally approachable and interested in the overall objectives of the event.Very positive reaction, good audience interaction during presentation and post event. Tim Campbell was very patient and has a very pleasant manner with all guests.

  6. Sounds Commercial Ltd

    Absolutely super – Tim’s such a nice bloke and comes across as himself: a nice, hard working chap. Went down very well with a very mixed audience.

  7. Centre For Business

    Tim was an excellent speaker. Very interesting story and clearly very passionate about what he does.
