Others say

"Event was a huge success and the delegates particularly enjoyed his anecdotes and speaking with him after the dinner."
University of Liverpool - Facilities Management

"I was very impressed by how John mixed with members of our management team when he joined us for the dinner the night before the main event. The banter was good and John was good company, it's alway difficult to know how well a celebrity will fit in with such a sometime boisterous group."
Spar

"John was great company both before and during dinner. His speech was great as it was about both his life in snooker and also his question of sport time. He also kept it clean which was very important for me!"
Howdens
