  • Great Expectation enable us to hear speakers at events before booking them, which is a great service as it allows you to hear for yourself before making the booking commitment.  They also continue to research for speaker solutions and provide options, even under strict restrictions such as timings, budget and location.  They really are fantastic to work with and a great partnership to have.

This is the kind of service I appreciate when running a large scale conference and what keeps me working with Marg and the team at Great Expectation.
