What the clients say:

We loved him, the public loved him – next time we want him back.

Principality Building Society

Geraint was extremely professional, knowledgeable and so calm when we had technical difficulties. A likable, warm man who’s personality shone through but still delivered our key messages in his own way

UEFA

Don’t ever book him, just in case it means we can’t have him. So easy to work with a great host and so good with the general public.

Celtic Manor Resort

Geraint engaged with the audience, hosted with charisma and could handle live conversation about any topic with any of our guests be it a sporting star or competition winners. He did the Olympic torch with us, the first thing we did after that was book him to do the Paralympic torch journey with us.
