David Munday, UK Group Treasurer, Innogy Business Services

“Campbell is an engaging public speaker who conveys his passion for the subject. He uses tangible examples to illustrate the topics and his key skill is that he manages to make complex topics accessible.”

Adrian Gibb, Partner Life Sciences, Roland Berger

“Campbell is very genuine and brings a lot of realism and practical thinking to his work. His ideas are much more than a ‘motivational’ speech on change. His session was an inspirational and energising discussion that provided us with the tools and insights to manage change within our department, the wider organisation and in our personal lives as well. I am confident that those who apply his experience-based tips will improve their performance.”

Rod Evans, EMEA Director, Intel
