"Just a note to thank you (John Simpson) very much for chairing our debate The Road Map for peace is leading nowhere. Our postbag was full the next day and the feedback has been very positive with the audience finding the debate extremely stimulating. We are very grateful that you were able to chair for us and we very much hope there will be a future occasion in which we can work together again...."
"Having seen John (Simpson) report from some of the world most hostile conflicts and interview some of the world leading political figures, you cant help but be in awe of a man who has literally seen and done it all before. However, to his credit, there is nothing big time about John and I have to say he was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Thoughtful, interesting, charming and with razor sharp humour to light up even the most depressing story, he talks with passion and genuine enthusiasm about the things he has witnessed over the years, resulting in people hanging on to his every word. In terms of what John provided for our event we could not have asked for anything more. It was a privilege to be in his company and I would recommend using John for almost any occasion given his knowledge and life experience."
