Keynotes & Conference Speaker

Topics tailored to your specific needs

“Dennis, I cannot find the words to package the gratitude for yesterday's session. Less than a minute of you wrapping up staff were coming to me with raving comments about you. I was taken aback that staff were thanking me for the work you did. We carried on in the pub afterwards with you being the buzz of the conversation. The thing about this group is they (including myself) are here because of a passion or love of the resource. It's very obvious you have found the same in the work you do."
Heather Millen
