Nick excelled our expectations. In the build up to the event Nick ensured that he had gleaned what we wanted from us. And he was very thorough in ensuring that we would be happy with the tone/level of response and content of his speech.The audience were amused, gripped and genuinely interested in what Nick had to say. I don’t think they expected him to be a humorous as he was.
Nick was brilliant. Engaging storytelling and fascinating (and indiscreet) insights into the world of Sir Alan and The Apprentice. Nick's Q&A went particularly well. The audience loved him and he took time to speak to everyone, sign autographs and pose for photos.

Overall the event went really well and the audience seemed to enjoy Nick's speech. Obviously fan's of the Apprentice appreciated his speech more than those who weren't, as I would say it was 90% focused on this (as expected).Nick was excellent on a one to one level and our guests all commented on how personable he was. As per previous events when we have had speakers our guests are all extremely keen to speak to and mingle with them, so this element worked very well.
As I said he was fantastic on the night, took time to speak to people and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I have also received many positive comments about his after dinner speech, in particular the question and answer session. Everyone seemed fascinated by his tales of the Apprentice and Sir Alan and with just the right amount of humour Nick was perfect for the occasion.

Nick was excellent. He liaised with the guests prior to the dinner, was a pleasure during the meal, delivered an excellent speech and smoothly awarded the prizes. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the speech and his sense of humour was appreciated. It was commonly shared amongst the guests, that his presence prior to the meal, during the photographs taken and subsequently at after dinner drinks, was delightful. He was accessible to all.

Nick was a pleasure to meet - I have not had a guest speaker who has put themselves out so much. His speech was very well received and I have had comments that he was one of our best speakers so far – the Q&A session could have gone on for a lot longer! Nick mingled with all the guests after the event which those present thoroughly enjoyed.

Nick had a very dry sense of humour which went down brilliantly with the audience. He mingled with guests and stayed for the whole evening. A good story teller with a great story to tell!!!! I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to others. Thanks Nick.
I would like to send a heartfelt thank you from all at Visit Kent for making Kent 2020 such a huge success for us this year. Your address was excellent, you inspired us with your wit and wisdom and for fans of the show (including top fans like me!) it was brilliant fun! You gave of your time so generously from the chaotic dinner the night before, the super early start and your presence throughout the morning ; we were delighted that you stayed to assist with the other activities. And .... when we saw your comments we were thrilled. We have some other ideas about how we might develop our relationship and will get back to you with those soon. In the meantime, I hope that you know that you have friends in Kent and that you will contact us when you are next passing through the county - we would love to take you out for lunch/host your stopover before you head to France. Regards, Sandra
Dear Nick,On behalf of the Wiltshire Assembly, Future Jobs Fund employees and their employers, I am writing to thank you for your part in the success of Action for Wiltshire's 'New Workforce for Wiltshire Event' at Hartham Park, Corsham on 27th May.Your presence was invaluable and your presentation interesting, inspirational and entertaining. One of the Future Jobs Funds employees commented that the message she took away from your talk was, 'Anyone can do anything - you can touch the sky if you work hard enough'. we are very proud of all the young employees who have come through Future Jobs Fund and if this thought is going to help them shape their hopes and potential when their current jobs finish, you will have made an enormous contribution to Wiltshire's young people and our hopes for a 'New Workforce'.Once again my sincere thanks,Alistair.

Nick was fantastic, he arrived early, was extremely supportive of the event and seemed well prepared. He fit well with the audience we had – all showing a passion for business in the UK. He delivered exactly what we wanted – an interesting and entertaining and witty speech focusing on his experiences within British enterprise. The feedback we have had from our guests about Nick’s speech has been superb. We were also delighted that Nick took the time to join us for dinner and stayed to chat to and have photos taken with our guests after the event. On behalf of ourselves and our guests, we would like to thank Nick for an excellent evening.

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your excellent contribution to yesterday’s successful awards event. Your insightful and engaging address followed by the Q&A session was very well received – a number of attendees specifically commented to me how much they enjoyed it. Thanks also for joining us in the photos at the end and also your willingness to informally chat and sign autographs. A great success all round.
Hi Nick, I just wanted to say thank you so much for being such a pleasure to work with over the past 3 days. We really enjoyed our time with you and the feedback from the delegates has been great (and I thoroughly enjoyed The Apprentice last night!).

I thought that your contribution to the success of our evening was outstanding. Thank you for taking the trouble to talk individually to the majority of our guests and for your patience with the endless photographs. Your after dinner speech gave us a glimpse behind the scenes of "The Apprentice" and was enjoyed by all of us.

Hi Nick,I just wanted to say thanks for Wednesday night. You're speech went down really well with our guests. The feedback we've had from the whole event has been extremely positive.It was lovely to meet you.
Nick was easy to work with and spent time getting to know about the subject and come up to the venue the night before for a run through. He stayed within the brief we gave him but added some lighthearted bits to the proceedings to keep the audience interested and engaged with the session. He was also very patient with the queue of people trying to talk to him about the Apprentice!
Brandon Hill Communications
Dear Nick Just a quick note to send immense thanks to you for supporting our Business Breakfast event yesterday. Employers and in particular the young people were thrilled at your attendance and we also received very positive press coverage in the local media which as you know, is always most welcome! I trust that you had a safe journey home, and that it won't be too long before we may see you in Swindon again. Very best wishes Lisa
From start to finish Nick was a pleasure to deal with and as I was advised, he provided our guests with a wonderful insight into the Apprentice, his life and Lord Sugar! He was funny, wise, intelligent and quick witted – a perfect combination for an after dinner speaker and tailored his talk to the audience in the room perfectly. Our guests have given us some fantastic feed back about our choice of speaker and I would be delighted to work with him again where possible!

My apologies for the tardiness of this note - I went straight from the TSA Conference to producing the CBI Conference and my feet haven't really touched the ground until now. Anyway - I just wanted to say a big thank you for your excellent contribution to the TSA Conference, it was a great success for all concerned! It was a pleasure working with you and hopefully our paths will cross again in the not too distant future. Thanks again and take care.

On behalf of Junior Achievement Isle of Man I would like to personally thank you for all your hard work and support during your two day stay. The local media have carried extensive coverage of your visit and I have received wonderful feedback from the students and business people who attended the events. You have gone out of your way to make everyone happy, including rushing straight from the plane to the cinema and signing endless autographs. It was a great privilege for me to meet you.
Junior Achievement Isle of Man
I just wanted to say thank you for your huge efforts on Friday ! From where we stand at the moment, it seems that most of our 'apprentices' were either offered firm jobs or firm interviews for firm jobs. In terms of achieving what we set out to do this represents a fair success. I think there is the potential to repeat the event but I think we need some time for our brains and bodies to recover from the last three weeks first !! Your contribution very much helped inform the other employers at the event and, I am sure, was a direct contribution to some of the job/interview offers made on the day and for that I am genuinely appreciative. Thank you once again, I very much hope that our paths will cross again in the very near future. Managing Director South West Regional Assessment Centre and Merley House Events

It was a great success and Nick was very well received, his presentation was pitched exactly right and we had many compliments from happy delegates. Please pass on our warmest thanks to him for helping to make our event a success – and especially for the autograph for my daughter who is very proud and showing it to everyone in school today!
Nick Hewer was exceptionally brilliant. He delivered a good performance as our co-host. He was interesting to listen to and entertained our guests the way we expected.They were very pleased to have Nick present their award ceremony and to have their photo taken with him. Nick took the time to mingle and have a drink with our guest before the dinner which was very nice of him to do.

Dear Nick Belated thanks for a great speech at last week's Dinner and for joining us afterwards. I've received fantastic feedback from the guests about you, and your willingness to stay on afterwards, to chat and have photos taken was really well received.

Excellent. Really took the time to prepare, understand it all, mingle with guests etc.

Heavy Entertainment Ltd
Nick was easy to work with and very professional. We took a different approach to the event this year, opting not to use a comedian. As expected, the event had a more refined – but still entertaining feel to it. The audience were positive and engaged throughout – which isn’t always easy to be sure of.
Institution of Chemical Engineers
Just to say that I have just had an email from the client regarding yesterdays event and they were delighted with Nick, the audience loved his presentation and Nick was wonderful to deal with. So please pass on my thanks to Nick and thanks again to you guys for all your help with this event for this.

Feedback from the client survey...Need I say anything here!? He was fab and he now makes me see The Apprentice (and the purpose behind it) differently. Great choice.Brilliant. Intelligent, witty & insightful. Could have happily listened to him all day.A class act and I didn't care it didn't really relate to the previous topics / speakers.Awesome!Thoroughly enjoyable and very entertaining
