Creating a Values-led Culture
Cross-Sector Collaboration and Innovation
"Each time I have seen Graham talk he was absolutely inspirational. He is highly intelligent and this shines through in his articulate and measured delivery. He adapts his style and content to his audience and his talks are delivered with humour and flair. He makes great use of films and other media to enhance his talks but is just as effective without. I always enjoy hearing him deliver. He is a naturally gifted speaker. Graham’s enthusiasm and leadership were responsible for our extending our 3 year relationship with the LAA for a further three years."
