His speech was thought provoking, motivating and packed full of simple but powerful tips and takeaways that were easy to implement. As one of the organisers of this event, I would highly recommend Dominic. He was great to work with, organised, professional and delivered a captivating speech that hit all the right notes.


Everyone really enjoyed the session on leadership communication that you delivered on Zoom. You have prompted the Senior Leadership Team to adopt different ways of working with each other and their teams, as well as considering their remote/on-line presence and how they show up to engage their audience.

Department for Work & Pensions

You know when the speaker is good when he has a group of newly qualified accountants all up out of their seats and asking each other 'are you looking at me' in a Robert De Niro style! We’ve engaged him to speak to our finance team several times and he really knows his stuff – he makes it fun and simple to understand. If you want a dynamic speaker for your event, with content that delegates can immediately put into practice, Dominic delivers.

Coop Food

As an organisation going through significant change, we were seeking an innovative and dynamic speaker to support our colleagues in developing their communication skills. Dominic’s IMPACT keynote laid the foundation for our colleague to do just that. The mix of acting skills, neuroscience and common sense made it impactful, memorable and above all a highly enjoyable and empowering experience.
