I just wanted to write you a quick line to say thank you for all the co-ordination etc of Tommy over the past few weeks. He was absolutely fantastic- and couldn't do enough for us. Many members of the public commented to us about how approachable he was, and he was incredibly attentive in taking time out for everyone who came to see him - staying way beyond the time that we had secured him for. In addition, both SkillBuild and SkillM&E (the organising bodies) were very impressed with his genuine interest in the overall theme, and many commented on how inspiring and motivational they thought his speech to be. It was more than evident that he was fantastic at engaging with our young people and they were thrilled to get feedback from him on their competition work. Once again - thanks both to you and Tommy. He added some fantastic kudos to what may have otherwise been a very bespoke themed event.
