WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT FLO
We enjoyed a full day of speaker training with tips and tricks, individual video recordings and personal analysis. Excellent learning even for more experienced presenters! Flo does a wonderful job to engage the entire crew and tailor his approach to the needs of all participants individually without loosing the attention of the group as a whole. Appreciated the diligent preparation of Flo, who knew exactly what kind of company he was dealing with and who adopted the material for the exercises to our case. Chapeau!

Great to have had the chance to meet Flo, an excellent trainer for public speaking and presentations!!
Head of Strategy Markets Development RHQ MEA
Flo worked with us as an MC on an incentive event, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with him. He is very enthusiastic, positive, and out-going. He helped us on site with the operations and ensured that ahead of the event, he has all the required information to be well prepared. It is easy for him to connect with different age groups, nationalities, and personalities. Flo added extra value to the event, through his energy, and made it more successful and a lot more fun! I recommend Flo as an MC and Speaker as he is with his versatility able to make an impact at your events.
Project Manager at 24 Degrees Tourism LLC
Flo has a unique ability to read the room and facilitate accordingly. He thinks on his feet and has a delightful, entertaining use of humor to make others feel at ease. He is a rare talent--he stands out among a sea of host/MC/facilitator hopefuls. He is as comfortable and personable one-on-one as he is in front of an audience--which I believe stems from his genuine others-centered approach. He is curious, mindful and believes his success is based on others' ability to learn and grow. I wish everyone we hired or contracted added as much value as Flo contributes.
Head of Talent and Org Development at Aerojet Rocketdyne
Flo is a pleasure to work with and very good in taking your event a notch higher. Not only is he a wonderfully talented and engaging Master of Ceremony, he also goes the extra mile to assist in any way he can. I would definitely recommend Flo to anyone for event planning/consulting, MCing or any of his other services. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Reliable Financial Advice
Flo is an easy going person; friendly and professional. I met Flo via Linkedin then later face to face in Dubai. He is passionate and very good conversationist (that should not come as surprise he is a public speaker and professional MC). And Yes he has a good dress sense. He is the kind of person you would love to teach you speaking or anchor your events.

I've had Flo as a speech coach for about 18 months. Although we had invested only one hour per month, the differences in my performance compared to the past were rapidly visible and quite noticeable. For people on the road and with very little spare time this was a perfect setting. I can highly recommend Flo.
