Henry must be one of the finest raconteurs to be found? His wit I believe is almost unequalled. He is most accessible, entirely reliable and with no prima donna tendencies whatsoever. He is an utter pleasure to be around.

Tom Speechley, CEO of Abraaj North America

The Guest Speaker Henry Blofeld on board the Amadeus Silver II over New Year was fantastic. He was enormously entertaining, gelled immediately with our clients and could not do more to assist during the sailing.

Megan Fowler, Assistant Field Staff Manager at Noble Caledonia Cruises

Henry Blofeld is probably the most amusing speaker we have ever hosted. He truly knocked us for six!

Fernando Piere, Director of The Ivy

The string of anecdotes and the telling of them makes Henry a most compelling and amusing raconteur. He has the audience hanging on his every word.

Lord Jonathan Marland, Patron of Salisbury and South Wiltshire Cricket and Hockey Club

His passion for his subject, knowledge and wit, made for a very entertaining session which was peppered with amusing anecdotes. He was a great hit with our audience, and I have no hesitation in recommending Henry for any speaking engagement.?
