"Dominic is an excellent Conference Chair with exceptional expertise in financial services and the ability to navigate complex topics with his unique conversational approach. Having chaired the Annual Flagship Conference of The Investing and Saving Alliance (TISA) twice, our delegates have consistently praised him for his profound knowledge of the financial services industry and engaging compering style. Dominic would be an asset to any industry event and will facilitate meaningful discussions among senior leaders on pressing issues of the day."
"I’ve been in the industry more than 30 years and I’ve not seen anyone better than Dominic at handling investment conferences. Whether it’s moderating a panel or a one-to-one, he ensures that delegates receive interesting and understandable content, sometimes from highly technical and dry interviewees. Meanwhile he strikes perfectly a difficult balance with the interviewees, making them feel relaxed while challenging them and encouraging explanations. He also adds a valuable overlay, referring to events happening in real time, and he works with us pre-conference to ensure our content objectives are met. It’s no coincidence that delegate feedback scores put Dominic on a level with or higher than the interviewees, and we would rather not have anyone else!”
