“Excellent. ‘Sam’s’ luncheon attracted a “sellout” crowd at our conference. Nobody wanted him to stop talking!! He was the right person for the audience. Big problem for me – how can I ‘top’ Sam for the next conference?

“Sam was a very entertaining speaker and I have received many compliments on having him there. I was impressed by the way that he did stay after his talk to sign autographs and talk to our attendees individually. One of the other presenters that we had, left straight away, after failing to take photos with some of the delegates as promised to them, so I was very impressed with Sam.”
