Rochdale Borough Council
Damian had been recommended some time ago by a colleague at work. He delivered a session for us this year at our annual leadership conference – what a shame we have waited until now to hear him speak! A fantastic and truly captivating session – it was both humorous, encouraging us to question our actions, and ourselves but also highly informative with research and information to back up what we were learning. We have had many speakers deliver sessions for us through the REAL Trust but I can honestly say that Damian’s session was one of, if not the best received session I have yet had the privilege to listen to. The audience remained engaged, interested and involved all morning. Damian’s breadth of knowledge and experience and his simple and approachable delivery helped to make the session brilliant – that’s no mean feat for a Friday session! Thanks again to Damian for joining us this year; we look forward to working with him again sometime soon.
