"We asked Geoff to present our 2nd Annual International Gaming Awards in January 2009 in front of the world’s leading Gaming CEOs.  Geoff with his excellent language skills and presentation ability made the awards ceremony a real success.  We will be asking Geoff back to do our 2010 ceremony".

Colin Thompson, Co-Founder
International Gaming Awards (IGA)  www.gaming-awards.com

 

"A true professional, Geoff Cotton impressed us with his attention to detail and the time that he put into rehearsing our awards ceremony.

He understood perfectly what we were looking for and delivered more than was expected.

A polished performer, he has a distinctive voice and great charm.

We will definitely use him again for future events and cannot recommend him highly enough".

Linda Freese, Corporate Communications Executive
Arthur Andersen

 

"Just wanted to thank you once again for last Thursday's AIM dinner.  I've had some excellent feedback from internal clients and everyone seemed very happy.  Thanks again and hope to work with you again in the future!"

Victoria Ayriss, Event Manager
London Stock Exchange

 

"The event at The Banqueting House was a great success involving many teams who brought it together to make it such a memorable occasion.  Your professional skill at public speaking ensured that the whole proceedings flowed at the right pace with a smooth style and a good delivery".

Wendy Ffitch, Conference and Events Manager
Unilever

 

"Your calm and professional manner throughout all aspects of the event was greatly appreciated.  Your presence on stage was a great addition to the atmosphere and the evening's entertainment was greatly enjoyed by all".

Mark Harrison, Director
The Full Effect

 


 - Geoff Cotton, corporate presenter -   "It was great working with you again. You did a fantastic job both on the speaker training and the facilitation of the conference. The delegate feedback was particularly complimentary and the client was very happy"

Linda Freese
Freese Event Management

 

"During Geoff's presentation you can feel your head nodding, a smile breaking out, even the odd giggle, and a general feeling of 'I know what you mean'. 

Geoff's delivery flows, it makes sense and is, of course, devoid of any erm’s and er’s, because he’ll share the secret of how to overcome this feature we all suffer from when presenting. 

Anybody who has to make a presentation, whether internal or external, whether to a few or to the masses, can learn so much in such a short space of time".

"I have done a fair bit of training over the years but I have to say that last Wednesday was the best yet. Thanks again for a great day and please tell Geoff he was amazing"

David McAteer

Coins Global

 

"Our audience was young, talented, and - dare I say it - not convinced that 'Presentations: Traps and Tricks™' was of any relevance to them: being at the forefront of the new media revolution, business had rolled in on the back of technical expertise rather than promotional activities.  

You quickly gained their respect and interest.  Afterwards, many of them started thinking about business skills in general, which they'd previously considered less important than creative skills.

We aim to help our leading-edge businesses excel in their global marketplace.  I expect to see some very polished deliveries when I take a group over to Hamburg in the near future!

Thank you, Geoff, for a thoroughly stimulating and enjoyable evening".

Marion Royer, General Manager

London Chamber of Commerce New Media Forum

 

"Enron Broadband Services at Milia 2000 Enron was delighted with the results of Geoff Cotton's theatre presentation at Milia.  In addition to Geoff being a talented spokesperson, he clearly communicated a complex message about our high-tech company that was memorable and effective.  

His style and demeanor, both during the demanding rehearsal schedule and during the open exhibit hours, resulted in capturing on-target, completed lead surveys that will assist in meeting our annual sales objectives.  We look forward to working with Geoff at future live event marketing opportunities".

Donna Kocourek, Manager - Event Marketing
Enron Broadband Services, Inc ( www.enron.net )

 

 

"Would thoroughly recommend Geoff Cotton's 'Presentations: Traps and Tricks™' talk.  The whole company benefited from this excellently compiled presentation, covering all the most common traps, with practical solutions and numerous tips.  

He kept the audience completely enthralled for one hour - we all recognised our own pitfalls and will never say `er, erm or ah again!  Very positive feedback from both junior and senior staff".

Anne Klahn, Managing Director

"I didn’t get a chance to thank you properly for your hard work last week. Your involvement brought calm, gravitas and impeccable professionalism to the shoot".

"I just wanted to drop you a quick line today to say thanks for being such a professional last night.  You really helped to gel the evening together so that everything ran smoothly and we have had some fantastic feedback on the event from our customers today saying what a great time they had.  I would not hesitate to book you again should the need arise so thanks again and I hope we get the opportunity to work together in the future".

"La prestation de Geoff était remarquable.  Il a su apporter beaucoup de vitalité et plein de bonne humeur à un script qui au départ était un peu austère".

Patrick BAGGIERI, DIRECTEUR DE PRODUCTION

"There is no doubt that our audience thoroughly enjoyed your presentation.  As I said afterwards, I could not believe that half an hour had passed so quickly.

Clearly there are no excuses now for not being wise to the 'Traps and Tricks' on presenting.  My thanks also, Geoff, for the personal coaching - I shall do my best to put your advice to good use in the future".

Charles Blowfield, Commercial Manager
Meetings Industry Association

"Geoff's session at our Communicators in Business conference went down extremely well, and we all learned some valuable lessons on the 'traps and tricks' of giving good presentations.  It was proving so useful that no one wanted to break for tea".

The British Association of Communicators in Business ( www.bacb.org )

"The combination of Geoff's 'Presentations: Traps and Tricks™' talk, his constructive criticism, practical, tailored advice and the very act of seeing myself on video made this workshop an informative, valuable and enjoyable experience which elicited great improvement in my presentation performance.
I would recommend it to anyone wishing to improve their confidence and skills in presenting".
