Excellent Professional Service.

Hi Matt,

I hope you are well.

I just wanted to Thank you so much for the assistance and help you gave me with my speech .

To say it went down well would be an understatement and that’s down in some part to delivery but without your guidance and support it would have been so so difficult .

From the moment we spoke I knew you were the man for the job it took so much pressure of me.
I managed to thank everyone the format you gave me was spot on with some humour and lots of feeling .

I received it in plenty of time to practise and tune a little.

In fact quite a few guests said it was the best they had heard and that’s firmly down to you.

I would certainly recommend your service please feel free to use this feedback in anyway you wish.

Thanks again and all the best for 2023.

“For someone well into his middle age and who has never had to give an after dinner speech the thought of this was quite daunting. However I shouldn’t have worried. With the help of Mathew in structuring the speech what could have been an overwhelming occasion was made almost relaxing” Mike
