Testimonials for Greg Ward
This cleverly put together show was fast, funny and highly entertaining. Greg's performance was outstanding as he was able to thread elements of the conference into the show. His ability to think on-the-spot and his musical talent is extraordinary. Most of all, it was obvious he was enjoying what he was doing. Greg got the big thumbs-up from our delegates, and I can safely say that he made the evening our most successful ever..."
Almost Elton is a show stopper and a guaranteed way to wow a crowd. I heard many people comment “who needs the real Elton!”
