Clare Haynes@WildfireSpark

"Saw Gerald Ratner speak this evening - truly witty. A superb example of a public speaker"

Antony Holdsworth FCMA, Chairman of the 2011 CIMA Members in Practice Conference

"Gerald Ratner was absolutely fantastic. Holding the audience from the moment he began speaking, he launched our annual conference with a bang. Although filled with humour, his speech still told the story of a painful fall followed by a jubilant rise. He inspired our delegates to believe they can achieve whatever they want. A great speaker and a great man."

Chris Cardell

"A very few achieve exceptional success and enjoy extraordinary wealth.
If you do it once in your life, then you’ve achieved something of note.

Maybe 1% manage to do this.

But... If you did it not just once... but did it TWICE? Then what would that make you?

Gerald Ratner did exactly this"


"Just returned from Belfast. Geralds speech made me cry with laughter and with sadness"


"Gerald was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending him"

Neil Stewart Associates

"Gerald was great - perfect for our client"

Chris, Denplan Ltd

"A hugely enjoyable speech which captivated the whole audience with interesting stories and humour.

Everyone that attended went away with something and the tone and style in which it was presented set up the rest of the conference superbly.

Highly recommended."


Caroline, UBM

"Gerald was exceptional as an 'opener' to our business awards. He delivered his speech in only 10 minutes- but it was rivetting, enlightening, humorous and thoughtful- and left the audience wishing for more. We will certainy use him again- and give him a longer time, but if you've only got a 10 minute gap to fill- he is the man."

Stephanie, William Reed Business Media

"A great story displayed in a humorous and very entertaining way! A controversial choice for some but very enlightening."

National Business Awards

"An amazing speech and a very tough act to follow."
