Testimonials

My husband and I have been with Highwood for three years. After our previous experiences with financial advisers, it was an enormous relief to find someone who explains everything in language we understand, who sets out the detail of our investments and importantly any charges incurred in a transparent way, and who always responds quickly to any queries we have. We came to Highwood at a time when we had to sort out my mother’s estate and had lots of decisions to make. Michael ‘held our hand’ through the process, and helped to clarify the options we had, and made it all feel much less daunting. We would (and do) highly recommend Highwood.

Michael’s presentation at the Moor Park Business Club was top class. Apart from my own views, I sat next to an IFA who was nodding all the way through your talk and commented on the excellent manner it was given. He said that he witnesses many similar presentations on similar topics but this had been the best ever witnessed.

As well as coaching individuals in Public Speaking, with an emphasis on Wedding Speeches, I work as an examiner/assessor for a Qualifications Awarding Organisation – English Speaking Board (ESB). As such I travel around the country assessing people giving presentations with view to them acquiring a professional qualification in Communication Skills. Had I been assessing you today there is no doubt you would have achieved a ‘Distinction’ in the ESB Award in Professional Presentation Skills which is at Degree level. Everything about it was excellent. I wish more people could communicate in such a professional manner as you did earlier today.
