“Aidan brings a natural curiosity about his fellow human beings to the discussions and events that he leads. People respond to this and the discussions are richer and more open as a result.
As a lead facilitator, Aidan has the uncommon ability to draw you into the subject, something I have witnessed on topics such as immigration and social mobility.”
SUZANNAH KINSELLA, Head of Public Engagement, Central Office of Information
“As a facilitator and speaker coach Aidan is able to work with and relate to people at all levels. He has a unique skill of being able to draw out what is really meant by what is being said.
He has been an invaluable resource for my communications teams over the years, and proved very useful to the executive in helping them get their messages across.”
JANE ROBERTS, Head of Internal Communications, Beazley.
“Finding someone who can bring such consistency to high level facilitation is rare. Aidan’s contribution is always considered, thoughtful and measured and has meant that many of our clients now ask for him over and over again.”
SIMON HUGHES, Director of Live Events, Central Office of Information
“Aidan is an excellent presenter and writer who ably crafts his material at exactly the right level for any audience, no matter how knowledgeable or experienced. He is a pleasure to work with.”
JULIAN ECCLES, Communications Director, Ofcom
Aidan has helped to plan and facilitate a wide range of events for the Department of Health’s Carers Strategy Team and the Standing Commission on Carers in the last couple of years.
Aidan very quickly assimilated the complexities of the wider policy agenda and was able to adapt to the differing needs of audience members, while keeping a clear focus on obtaining the desired outcomes. He deals sensitively but firmly with audience members who are angry or upset or are going off at tangents!”
ELAINE EDGAR, Senior Project Manager, Carers Strategy Team, Department Of Health
“I have worked with Aidan on a number of projects and – no matter what subject we are tackling – he has an ability to see through to the essence of the issue very quickly, and to be able to express it very clearly. He is also very personable, which means he is very easy to work with.”
BEN WICKHAM, Managing Director, Flickering Wall Films
