We were delighted to have Pat Falvey agree to work with us at the European Insurance Forum in the Four Seasons Hotel. Pat’s attention to detail and professionalism in his preparation was impressive, but his presentation and delivery on the night blew us away. His story was fascinating, riveting, engaging and at times emotionally charged. We recommend him unreservedly and hope to have him back speaking at one of our events again very soon.
— Marie Griffin, General Manager, Event Management International
The reaction from everyone present was quite phenomenal and the general feeling was that it was the best presentation they have ever attended. I found it enlightening and inspirational and was struck by the incredible results that ensue from good teamwork and determination to achieve one’s goals. Your entire talk was honest, open and hugely motivational. Your visuals of some of your conquests were deeply moving, especially of the Mount Everest ascent.
