Testimonials for Dr Toby Ford
Dr Ford managed the venue very well - outdoors with no amplification, a spread out audience and vocal competition from the local fauna. His delivery contained great humour which complemented the seriousness of his message. We received very positive feedback from our participants. It was an inspiring way to start the day
