Testimonials from Communications Day 2017

  • “I would like to thank you and the Law Society for organising the Communications Day, last week. It was so well organised, the speakers were fantastic, Johnny Fallon was particularly effective and I really took a lot from it.  I have since shared the knowledge with colleagues, who are now kicking themselves that they missed it!”
  • “It was a professional presentation, of that there is no doubt, but it was more than that. It was a powerful presentation because the presentation gave the audience the power to communicate, to convince, to combat, to compete, to collaborate, and to connect. It was an exceptional presentation given by two professionals in full command of their subject matter.”
