"We invited Piers to talk to our colleagues about diversity and its importance in business at our first ever digital internal conference. We're at the start of our journey when it comes to talking about race and ethnic diversity in the workplace and Piers pitched his session perfectly for our colleagues. His session was informative, insightful and inspiring and garnered fantastic engagement and feedback from colleagues, with several describing it as the best presentation they've seen during their time with the business. We'd have Piers back again in a heartbeat, on any of the wide variety of subjects on which he's an expert."

Lauren, The Very Group

"Piers is an insightful, energetic and entertaining speaker, with thought-provoking ideas and insights based upon his extensive business experience. His vibrance and enthusiasm during his presentation kept the audience engaged from start to end. Not only was he well received by the audience, he was easy and personable to work with, spending extra time listening to the other speakers and interacting with our team and delegates."

Wheller, Director, Segment, Brand & Advocacy Marketing, Cisco EMEAR

"An amazing person and speaker. So popular that we ran out of headphones and space on our exhibition stand! It was an incredible."
