I contacted Essential Talent to find a keynote speaker for our conference and the service was fantastic. I was really impressed how quickly Shaun with the speaker confirmed the presentation making it a perfect fit to our conference theme. I would happily recommend using Essential Talent for your next event.

Shaun and the team at Essential Talent were brilliant to deal with in finding us an inspirational speaker for our Leavers Dinner. Shaun nailed the brief and also gave us an option between two world class speakers to choose from. I highly endorse Essential Talent and recommend them to all.
