Terry provided short business talks on a number of occasions related to specific topics requested by the members of The Executive Association Thames Valley, of which I was chairman at the time. Terry's talks were professionally delivered with good quality visual aids, well researched and specific to the topic requested. I would have no problem in recommending Terry as a well informed and articulate speaker confident in his subject area.
Terry presented this broad-ranging topic in a clear and interesting way. His visual and oral presentations made a complex issue easily to understand. Our associates were very complimentary about how Terry had impressed with his range of knowledge and his style of communication. We will certainly be adding him to our list of regular speakers.
I've heard Terry speak at events and have always found his material and delivery to be of the highest quality. Terry's presentations are relevant, interesting, to the point and full of practical examples. His experience and enthusiasm for his subject(s) shine through and I would recommend him as a speaker.
I always look forward to listening to Terry’s business presentations at the Executive Association Thames Valley events. Not only is Terry an excellent public speaker, he also provides invaluable business advice.
Terry led a workshop session for senior management and business owners on management and leadership, covering issues and successful management styles. Terry's sessions were very well received and the feedback was tremendous and positive.… I recommend adding Terry to your list of speakers. He will deliver a flawless, quality and professional session that is insightful, allows for learning, and is very topical in our current climate.
Terry presented very successfully to a group of professionals we brought together and really got the audience thinking around how they could apply new ideas in what was then a slowing economy. He is very professional in his approach, which combines a desire to focus on the key business factors but at the same time maintaining a very calm approach with his audience.
Terry was my mentor following my decision to adjust my lifestyle away from my FTSE executive role to a non-executive portfolio career. During this time he provided me with the benefit of his deep commercial acumen in general and the NED market and what was needed to be successful in the role and help drive a business forward in particular. Terry’s own personal NED experience proved to be really insightful when discussing and resolving challenges I encountered during this transitional period. I believe Terry would be a great mentor for any individual going through this type of career transition or any company looking for an internationally experienced NED.
Terry understands what it is to be a mentor, to help you understand yourself and put your strengths to work. Most importantly, he holds up a mirror to you that reflects what other people see and then coaches you so that what they see is what you’d like them to. His ability to both challenge and support simultaneously is built on experience and understanding. I recommend his services.
I have attended meetings that Terry has also attended and heard him talk about business management and strategy many times. Terry has a helicopter view of how businesses function, yet he also understands how key details can make a difference. This enables him to provide a unique perspective on where value is added or lost and how to resolve the situation. His in-depth knowledge covers finance, marketing, operations and HR. If you have any business issues, then you can be sure that Terry will be able to come up with a solution.
I worked with Terry when he was based in Russia as MD running the adhesives business for Henkel based in St. Petersburg. He has great strengths as leader and strategic thinker and was responsible for major growth in the Russian business in general and profitability in particular.
