Agent Recommendation

Live events give Huw an opportunity to display a wicked sense of humour. Unsurprisingly, he’s quick to a master the brief; what’s extraordinary is the ease with which he mixes serious messages with funny anecdotes – and his ability to make audiences feel they’re attending a very special occasion JLA Agent Allan Grant
