“Conor is an excellent communicator, insightful and engaging. He has spoken at two of our largest conferences and on both occasions the reaction he received from those present was hugely positive. Not alone did Conor have an effortless command of the topics in question, he was able to shape both presentations to ensure that the content was directly relevant to the audience. His personable, relaxed style ensured that there was a great deal of engagement with the attendees. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other organisations looking for an informed, engaging keynote speaker”.  – Kieran McDonnell, Irish League of Credit Unions (May 2017)

“Conor Pope was invited to speak at a recent event of ours, covering the topic of Brand Storytelling. Conor’s talk was highly engaging, topical and entertaining, and adhered perfectly to the brief. Conor also kindly introduced himself to many of the attendees throughout the morning, showing a genuine interest in the audience. We would love to have him again!” – Rebecca O’Keeffe, Taste Cork (May 2017)
