“Alfie immediately put our guests at ease when he took to the stage at a recent client luncheon and seminar. A true professional and genuinely funny man, Alfie managed to both fascinate our guests with his entertaining stories and lift the room to laughter with brilliantly executed jokes without compromising our formal lunchtime brief! I would definitely recommend Alfie for similar events.”
Paul Braddock, Braddock Thornton Wealth Management
“Alfie spoke at the Annual Steel Industry Dinner and went down a storm – he is one of the best we have had. He is master of the dry delivery of some very funny tales and he instantly captured the mood of the evening. When the formal part of the event was over, Alfie stayed and chatted to the guests, a gesture which was much appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend him”.
Ian Harding, President of NASS
“Great after dinner light-hearted, intelligent speaker. Genuinely funny, topical, interactive and pitched just right to a mixed audience – no swearing, never offensive or rude. One of the best – felt we were in safe hands”.
Martin Axon, HR Director, Clugston Construction Ltd
“It was clear that Alfie had done his homework prior to our event and hence the style and content was perfect with delivery that was well judged and targeted at the audience in question. Very positive feedback from all who attended. I would not hesitate to recommend him”.
Mark Newton, Managing Director, Soleco UK Ltd
“What an entertainer – a mixed audience and they all laughed out loud. No innuendo, no smut, just very clever observations on the law, lawyers, police and the public. The best charter speaker we have had in living memory”.
Rodger Heathcote, President of The Rotary Club of Chesterfield Scarsdale
“Thank you on behalf of myself and fellow Council Members for your excellent after dinner speech. The feedback I have had has been very positive indeed. I think you pitched the content and humour perfectly for our event, making it a very successful and entertaining evening for us”.
Nick Wynn-Williams, President Wolverhampton Law Society
Paul Bacon, President of the Rotary Club of Mansfield
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your after dinner speech at the Burnley and Pendle Annual Law Dinner. You struck exactly the right balance for the audience and any future speakers will have a hard act to follow. As a final note I just wanted to mention how helpful you were in the planning stages given that it was the first time I had organised the dinner”.
Hannah Lamb, Burnley & Pendle Law Society
“After hearing Alfie speak at an event, I subsequently booked his services for an Awards ceremony that I was arranging for one of my clients. Alfie proved to be extremely entertaining and I received fabulous feedback. Several guests saying that they just didn’t stop laughing! He is excellent”.
Barbara Hallwood, Director, Marketing Profile
“Great success all round, everyone thought you were brilliant”.
Brian Hayward, Partner, PAGE Partnership
“Thank you so much for speaking at the Awards ceremony. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event and in particular your after dinner speaking. The Chief has received many congratulations and positive comments about the evening, many mentioning yourself as a superb speaker”.
Katrina Goodhand, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service
“You were well received by everyone and the feedback has been tremendous – a brilliantly funny ending to a successful event. We are looking forward to working with you again at a future event.”
Anne Jardine, Altrincham & Sale Chamber of Commerce
“He has a nice, relaxed style which combines with the inherent interest in the on-the-job stories to make him someone you just want to listen to. There’s no way of escaping this conclusion: he’s an arresting storyteller”.
Steve Bennett, Chortle
“Just to say thanks for entertaining us all – we thoroughly enjoyed your company and performance. The content was absolutely spot on, you delivered well and appeared to be enjoying yourself which is always good from an audience perspective. I think the audience’s response was further evidence of your fantastic performance”.
South Yorkshire Occupational Health Advisors Conference
“Alfie was the guest speaker this year and the feedback from everyone afterwards was how entertaining he was with a good mixture of interest and comedy. His view on the police, the judiciary and the public was so funny. I would be very happy to recommend him for any similar event”.
Lymm and District Round Table No. 796
“I thought your performance was spot on Alfie and exactly what we needed, I would have no hesitation in recommending you for similar events”.
Hull 36 Round Table
“The mix of humour and real life experience through the eyes of a serving policeman made the entertainment very enjoyable and suited the audience on the day. I have to say that on a personal note I was impressed with the way you kept the content clean whilst at the same time remaining very funny, which is the sign of a good performer”.
