Ben was excellent at mixing and mingling with the guests especially as we did not accompany him. His speech to the audience was very good and very well received.I would say that he did not necessarily follow the brief completely however he did do an excellent job on this. Ben was very tired from just coming back from New York, and this came across in a one to one situation with the committee pre-press interviews, and at times he was quite hard work at the table which did surprise me. Although when in media situations or on stage he was excellent.
