Event Organiser Testimonials

We worked with Colin during New Media Europe in 2015 and UKPOD14 in 2014. On both occasions Colin did not disappoint. His speeches were current, relevant and most of all engaging. He has a clear passion for podcasting and this shines through in the content he produces. Colin was also very good with communication and promotion help before both events. Our attendees continue providing great feedback for Colin’s session and we will not hesitate in inviting him to our future events!

Izabela Russell

Managing Director, New Media Europe

We have worked closely with Colin at a number of our events over the past two years and we now know him very well. Colin is hugely involved in podcasting and continues to hone his craft. He’s a great public speaker and I know that he’s deliberately developing himself to become the best in his field.

Colin ticks all the boxes and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Colin to speak and facilitate at industry, business and marketing conferences, seminars and events – I’m putting my money where my mouth is…we’ve invited him to speak at our flagship event in Scotland in 2016!
