“I’ve been organising large scale conferences and events for more years than I care to remember. I can honestly say Nigel Risner is unequivocally the very best speaker I have ever engaged. When I say best I mean BEST; in every respect. He has a powerful personality that commands attention. He has a style of delivery that captures and holds people’s imagination… and spellbound! He has an enormous capacity for wit and the Wisdom of Solomon." 
"Nigel Risner doesn’t just deliver an engaging presentation. He does his homework to understand and identify the challenges his audiences face; offering creative and novel solutions to resolve them. I have never engaged the same speaker twice. I’ve engaged Nigel three times! Thank you Nigel and long may you continue to wow audiences around the world!”
