"Neil’s extensive experience of the education landscape and of the dangers society poses to young people through his work both contribute to making the presentation on the dangers of (internet) pornography relevant, factual, interesting and thought-provoking. A highly-recommended component of any PSHCE or Religion and Life curriculum, delivered by an expert"
Jonny Mitchell, Principal, The Co-operative Academy of Leeds
“Neil is a speaker who gets straight to the point and his pull no punches style really helps to get across the message. It’s nice to see a presenter who doesn’t take himself so seriously and is able to be himself in front of any audience”.
