Testimonials for Ian Berry

“I first met Ian when he was a keynote speaker at an Institute of Directors meeting in UK. His delivery on the subject matter he presented on was passionate, sincere and his wisdom quite simply compelling. It was clear to me from first hearing him speak, that Ian is indeed a unique and influential individual, who has a great gift for sharing experiences and stopping people in their tracks and encouraging them to ask questions that affect all of us in our daily lives, but often we are too busy at work for example to either care or notice what is going on around us. Life after all, is not a dress rehearsal. Since then I have been able to actively benefit from Ian's guidance and advice, which have helped my focus and leadership skills from both a personal and business level and I trust in consequence become better balanced in how I strive to conduct myself and contribute more to what I perceive to be my social responsibilities. I count Ian as a good mentor and value his input, support and guidance.”
Michael Hoddy, IBM Alliance Director EMEA-LAM, Schneider Electric, Europe

Ian is a wonderful and thoughtful speaker.”

He is dynamic, well organized, uses interesting visual aids and inspires a commitment to action among his audience.
