MANY NATIONALLY KNOWN COMPANIES HAVE USED ADRIAN'S EXPERTISE OFTEN COMING BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR - THIS IS WHAT THEY SAY.............
LUNN POLY LIMITED
- Alan Righton, Operations Administration Manager
"Over the years, we have witnessed the performance of many after dinner speakers, and have generally been pleased with their performance. Having said that, none of them have ever received a standing ovation - which you did following your performance. Our senior Managers are from every division in our Company, whether it be sales or accounting, systems or personnel and, as you found, we have a 50:50 split of male and female staff. Nevertheless, your comedy, without sexist, racist or religious overtones, kept us all entertained for well over an hour. We can certainly recommend you to others who require a talented entertainer.
HISTORIC SPORTS CAR CLUB
- Hal Danby
"Our annual Dinner Dance last week was a great success - in large part because of you. We asked you to be Master of Ceremonies and were not disappointed. You managed, not only to provide one of the best stand-up routines I have ever heard, but also managed to get us through the prize giving (with all its usual chaos) and the raffle with the same wonderful sense of humour which characterised the whole evening. You have set a new standard for our annual event and will be a very hard act to follow.
BRITISH AIRWAYS WORLD CARGO
- Sheila Evans, Terminal Manager
"I felt I had to write to thank you for making our Dinner Dance such a huge success. People will be talking about you for months to come. Your quick wit and professionalism delighted us all. It was such a pleasure to be able to relax and enjoy the show without any "blue" material to spoil anyone's evening."
CAR CARE PLAN LIMITED
- Jonathon Heap, Director of Marketing
"We place great importance on our annual company conference. It's the only time in the year when we all get together to review, to plan and to motivate in preparation for the year ahead. Like most conference organisers, I am faced with the annual problem of looking for a suitable speaker. I am pleased to report that Adrian Walsh did a tremendous job, and developed first class rapport with the audience, which resulted in an excellent evening. Adrian's quick wit, coupled with his ability to recall members of the audience are delivered in a squeaky clean fashion, produced a memorable night.
LUNN POLY LIMITED
- Nigel R. Cleevely, Operations Director
"Your performance after the final evening's dinner was absolutely superb and was exactly in line with what was required. To receive a standing ovation was the accolade you deserved, and I would love you to return for future events of this type.
TOP RANK LIMITED
- Michael Murphy, Promotions and Publicity Controller
"We were absolutely delighted with your performance as Master of Ceremonies at the Top Rank Management Awards. Your stand-up material was well pitched for the audience and you managed to keep the whole show bang on schedule, which was particularly important given the calibre of the audience and the cabaret.
