We were all delighted with Ilja – his keynote address/speech was ‘on point’ and exactly what we were looking for. His ‘change message’ was easy to understand for our multi-cultural audience, delivered with good humour and self-deprecation – the attendees loved it! We particularly also appreciated that he took time afterwards and made a real effort to connect with our delegates during breaks and meals for the rest of the day. From first contact, he was easy to work with and his preparation was immaculate, he worked seamlessly with our conference production company and was generally very easy to get along with – a very likeable individual with a good, positive and constructive message. Just what we’d been looking for!
