He spoke for an hour and made the content informative, interactive and relevant to the audience. Everyone was intrigued to what he was going to say next!” Lorna Blackett, Business Growth Enabler, NatWest

After 25yrs of running this event, the feedback was that he was the best speaker we have ever had!” Martin Wicks, Regional Managing Director, Worldwide Insurance Network Group (WING)

We would like to thank Gary for his wisdom and insight and we will be working with him very soon to help Dubai become not only a Smart City, but a Cybersecure city too.” K Krishna Murthi, Group Chief Financial Officer, RMS
"In December 2015, Gary gave a brilliant talk to our year 11 students. He made it relevant, fun, engaging and most importantly delivered in a way that our students could relate to. The talk matched the brief exactly - how if you strive to overcome barriers, nothing can stop you progressing. Gary used really up to date relevant examples that the students could relate to and used his wealth of experience to 'wow' the students including the large list of organisations that he has worked with. We still use the information Gary portrayed in his slides like 'what happens on the web in 60s' and have shared the messages Gary gave to over 1200 students following his visit in 2015. We wouldn't hesitate in having Gary back to speak in Bradford academy with any age of student." Anthony Smith, Business and Development Manager, Bradford Academy
