Network Housing Group
"The session was engaging and relevant. Neil actually made us talk to each other (and listen). His lesson on listening was very subtle and memorable. He hit the right note - some 'motivational' speakers can be a bit naff, but he was strong - educative and well informed."

ABN AMRO Commercial Finance PLC
"Many thanks for your time . A most enjoyable day with a real difference! Thank you for an excellent session. We were really pleased with how you weaved all of thesalient points into the afternoon session and how engaged the team were. It was an amazing session. A profoundly thought-provoking afternoon that was loads of fun."

The Beyond Partnership
What you did was stunning - wonderfully conversationally provocative. Paul King, Managing Director (after the one day public masterclass for leaders, consultants and coaches).

HSBC Bank plc UK
We were delighted to have Neil share a session at our off-site. His session helped us to examine the way we interact with others in a positive and entertaining way.

Unilever
The delegates have learnt a lot from you and I thank you for the positive influence you have had over circa 250 planners in the past 4 years. Not to mention the good laughs at the Comedy Store, of course.
Sandra Kinmont. Global S&OP Capability Director
Customer Service Excellence


Castrol
I just wanted to write and thank you for running the course for me the other day. It never ceases to amaze me the impact that it has on people.

KPMG
Thank you for your lively and engaging sessions. The participants were spellbound and the feedback has been really positive. I have personally seen many examples of real active listening, with people picking up the cues of others so obviously the learning has landed.
Garcia Williamson, UK Head of Talent, KPMG

Neil's session added a completely different dimension to our senior grade workshop. Getting our people up their feet and trying out personal effectiveness techniques they wouldn't previously have known about, amidst our other sessions on business plans and the economic outlook, ensured we delivered a much more textured and rounded learning experience.
Learning & Development Manager, KPMG.

Weber Shandwick
A fun approach to a serious subject that engaged me with everyone & developed new skills at the same time.

Virgin Money
A very inspirational and thought provoking course - thanks.

Comic Relief Grants Team - Summer 2010
• Neil was great and a change from the norm... we need more sessions like Having Better Conversations
• Having Better Conversations was fun and reminded me of things I know I should know but sometimes forget
• Neil's session was hugely enjoyable and yes – I'm trying out some of the techniques already

Deutsche Bank/London Business School
The participants loved the session. It was something different and fresh. Thanks again. You were great.

Archant
Thank you so much for such a fantastic session at our recent sales conference.

Deloitte
A huge thanks to you for a fantastic afternoon. Everyone had a great time.

Umbro
Delighted as ever to work with you and watch an artisan at work.

BBC Worldwide
The level of pitches was actually terrific and I put that down at least in part to you inspiring people and getting them limbered up earlier.

Boots Healthcare International
Thank you so much for running such a fantastic session yesterday.

BP
Your session worked really well and set just the participative, innovative, risk-taking tone and theme of conversation that we wanted.

Bulldog Broadband
It was a great experience in learning to shake off habits, pre-conceptions and my own single-mindedness to help enable better participation and interaction with other people.

Companies House
I hear people saying they have 'done a Neil Mullarkey' meaning that they've taken a different approach to a presentation - less formality and more passion and connection with their audience.

Fitch
Working with Neil's unique talents and techniques has many benefits above and beyond straight-out skill development.

HTI (Heads, Teachers, Industry)
Neil's training leaves a long lasting legacy.

London Business School
Neil takes executives to a space that is fun, challenging and for them completely new.

Morgan Stanley
I thought it was pretty much perfect, and that you made us feel welcome, relaxed but challenged.

NHS Confederation Conference
Your contribution was brilliant and the feedback from delegates I spoke to said that it had really struck a chord with them. Thanks again for making the sessions both thought-provoking and fun.

UK Atomic Energy Authority
Neil's disarmingly charming approach masks a razor sharp wit and intellect - of course, the very essence of the Improv professional – as he leads, teases, coaches and cajoles his teams through the real life learnings that are oh-so cleverly disguised as theatre.

Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide
Neil's use of improvisation (both theory and practice) made for one of the most inspiring and provocative sessions on creativity that I have ever experienced.

Astra Zeneca
I wanted to send my thanks for a truly great session... the feedback from the field force has been exceptional and they can be a tough audience to please!
Brand Manager, Astra Zeneca.

Ogilvy Advertising
Great session, thank you. It really did achieve exactly what we wanted - broke down barriers, helped bring everyone together for the rest of the away day and importantly people took something very positive out of the training which will really help us all. You were spot on.
