"The audience loved him because it was JON TOOGOOD so really bought the wow and star factor. We used him to open the conference, singing (with dancers and pyro), and to close – so left everyone in a hyped up state. The audience totally loved him, and he was such a huge asset throughout the day – we would definitely use him again – as well as the fact that he was super easy to deal with, eager to please, and no ego or drama (which is fab). He is a great guy, and it really made the day (and dealing with him) a pleasure. He did a great job!"
