Testimonials

Audience was fascinated by Paul. The room was so quiet throughout his speech that you could hear a pin drop. His story was so inspiring that he had some people in tears. After his speech the students and business leaders were standing queue to be either photographed with Paul or just to have a few words with him. We would love for Paul to come back to our school to inspire the rest of the school students.
