Alan has had a stream of rave reviews after his speaking engagement at the Xmas Lunch at Woburn Golf Club – highlights include-
“3 word review – superb, fabulous, hilarious” “gripped the large audience from start to finish – unforgettably funny” “my only complaint was that you ruined my mascara as I was weeping with laughter. Are you free to speak at our Ladies’ Lunch? – very few people can be that funny without a trace of offence”.
The Highways Electrical Association held its Awards Dinner at the superb Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales and Alan’s performance as compere had rave reviews.
“They can be a challenging audience, but you ran the evening brilliantly with pace and wit.”
“You were on sparkling form and a consummate pro.”
Alan is just back from a very successful speaking trip on Marco Polo around the lovely Baltic and won high praise from scores of passengers and the Cruise Director – “Four superb shows and full houses every time – that rarely happens. Excellent talks and top class humour. It said it all when you even had standing room only when it was a lovely sunny day on deck!”
To the Right Address Speaking Agency – www.rightaddress.co.uk ………………………………
can I also thank you for arranging for Alan Wright to speak this year. The feedback we have had has been overwhelmingly positive. Alan was the perfect speaker, struck exactly the right tone for the evening, and expertly managed that fine balance between being very funny and entertaining without ever becoming offensive. On the run up to the dinner Alan was very accessible, understood the brief perfectly, and was a pleasure to work with. A true professional throughout – and a speaker I would whole-heartedly recommend to others.
Alan enjoyed what he described as “one of my best audiences ever” at a packed house for the IMechE dinner. A large number of top engineering companies were present and Chairman Chris Briggs wrote –
It was a great night Alan of which you were definitely the highlight. Great speech and you were the best speaker we’ve ever had. The feedback all round has been superb.
CMV – MAGELLAN – 33 DAYS AROUND THE CARIBBEAN – 12.15 – Thank you for everything you have done for us – our audiences loved you – giving us 20 totally different presentations was brilliant – warmest thanks from all of the entertainment team.
And from passengers ………. “we loved coming to your talks and didn’t miss one – simply outstanding” ……… “I enjoyed the Caribbean so much more after hearing your lovely informative talks – and so much fun too” …… “I’m a dedicated cruiser and have never heard anyone in your class before – warmest thanks.”
FRED OLSEN, BALMORAL – Alan was our guest speaker on the Mauritius to Cape Town leg of our world cruise and he was simply superb. He is a very experienced after-dinner speaker and how it showed. His combination of really good graphics and ready wit had our theatre audiences in gales of laughter. After his first appearance, word soon spread around the ship and his subsequent appearances were standing room only.
SAGA PEARL 2 – I thought Alan was just superb. The theatre was full each time he gave a talk. He is so easy to listen to and I wanted to stay to hear every story he had to tell. He was very humorous in all of his talks and I would definitely recommend him again.
P&O VENTURA – Alan came on board with 8 totally different and beautifully prepared presentations. He captivated our audiences on every appearance and received rave reviews for his very funny style and content. We were delighted to have countless very warm compliments from passengers, best summed up by one who said, “I have been cruising for over 20 years and have rarely seen a speaker of Alan Wright’s sheer quality – flawlessly fluent and an amazing gift to change gear from informative and inspirational to, above all, side-splittingly funny.
Some very pleasant reviews on the speaking and media training front –
ROUND TABLE 41 CLUB – Warmest thanks for your fabulous contribution to our celebration dinner. Gripping an audience not noted for sobriety or orderly behaviour is far from easy, but you gave all present a valuable lesson on how it should be done without recourse to a single swear word. Even our hard bitten, and well travelled, musicians stayed to listen and asked me to pass on their congratulations. Thank you again.
SENIOR POLICE OFFICERS’ MESS DINNER – Thank you so much for your splendid contribution to our VIP Dinner on Friday. I am enjoying this Monday morning fielding lots of contacts praising the event and singling out your speech as the highlight. Thank you so much.
CANCER SUPPORT GROUP – After his magnificent job at our last fundraising evening, we are delighted to have Alan back at the helm tonight – he hosts with such great style and skill that we can just relax and enjoy seeing a master at work!
SCOTTISH FIRE SERVICE – Thank you so much for your presentation at our training event. Feedback from course members is unanimous in the view that your style is wonderfully informative, entertaining and thought-provoking. We are already moving many of your ideas into our short term planning and long term strategy.
NHS CONFERENCE – Seldom have I witnessed such a brilliant example of how to chair a conference and inspire an audience from beginning to end. Your wit and humour set the tone for the event and your ability to turn to serious matters was impressive. I can’t thank you enough for your enormous contribution.
ENTREPRENEURS’ CONFERENCE – Wow – a world class host, a master of his craft.
Lovely review after a speaking tour in UAE ……….
“All in Dubai would
like to see him again, great public speaker, Alan is a great man to have on
your side when the chips are down.
Alan has just enjoyed speaking to a superb audience at the Fund Managers’ Dinner at the Palace Hotel in Douglas on the Isle of Man. The island’s business leaders were all there, as well as the First Minister and several of his Cabinet. Rave reviews included –
“Highly entertaining speech and very much enjoyed your delivery.” Laurence Skelly, Minister for Economic Development.
“Really enjoyed your speech – great material!” Mark Waterhouse, CEO, Zurich Bank International.
Alan compered an amazing day for the Entrepreneurs’ Forum Conference which saw a stellar speaking line up and over 200 top business people in the audience. Alan’s day-long role as MC brought a host of plaudits, especially for his spontaneous ten minutes long unplanned comedy two-way with George Clarke of Channel 4 fame. Some emails and tweets – more to come and video and pix too –
“A joy to listen, watch and laugh with you – you must be Hartlepool’s national treasure!”
“Incredible and totally unexpected comedy turn with George Clarke – I’ve never laughed this much in a comedy club, never mind at a top business conference. Somebody should snap the two of you up for a TV series – sharpish!”
“How does Alan do it? Changed gear from side-splitting comedy to a very sharp on-stage interview about developments in retinal surgery technology!”
“A simply fantastic host.” “A world class MC.”
“You were hilarious – and made it look so effortless.”
“A privilege to be there to see a master of his craft.”
And the icing on the cake from George Clarke himself –
“I just wanted to thank you for today. I really enjoyed myself and you were brilliant. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a laugh during a Q&A session. Keep in touch. ”
