"I am in a trade mission with UKTI and the mayor of London. I won the pitching competition in fintech – I have discovered the cat in me. I even had to do the pitch in front of the press, only podium was a bit high for me but did not deter me. Thank you again – you were certainly instrumental in my development in public speaking”.
“On behalf of the Weightmans Wednesday Committee, I’d like to say a huge thank you for taking the time to speak yesterday. We really appreciate all of the effort you made and for putting on such an engaging presentation. The feedback has been fantastic and you received a resounding set of ‘excellent’ scores for your presentation and the subject matter. I’ve also heard a number of people debating on whether they are a ‘Cat or Dog’ in the office this morning! Something that I believe will soon be a global concept! So thank you again. I am personally very inspired by the work you do and hope to work with you again in the future”.
