Shaun and the team at Essential Talent were brilliant to deal with in finding us an inspirational speaker for our Leavers Dinner. Shaun nailed the brief and also gave us an option between two world class speakers to choose from. I highly endorse Essential Talent and recommend them to all.

Brendhan recently MC’d at our internal Awards and Celebration Evening, where he was very professional and did a great job to consider our audience and ensure the content was suitable for all. Brendhan provided fantastic entertainment across the evening, where our team were on the edge of their seats with laughter. We would definitely invite him to speak again and recommend Brendhan as a speaker for corporate events

Shaun is very well connected in the media industry, so his talent sourcing is the best in the business because he genuinely knows his talent. I trust him completely with my brief as he understands exactly what I am looking to achieve for my events. Shaun is well regarded and in turn is able to ‘make it happen’ meaning everyone is happy.

I found Essential Talent online and contacted Shaun in urgent need of a professional speaker for an event, and the communication and liaison thereafter with Shaun were tremendously quick and easy, far more than my expectation. Shaun was able to find out solutions to meet my requirements and all the attendees greatly enjoyed the speaker’s presentation in the event. In the future I would definitely reach out Essential Talent and Shaun for similar services.
