Malcolm is a very gifted speaker. He can make complex subjects entertaining and having traveled the world as a British diplomat for nearly twenty years I can’t think of anyone that I would rather listen to. He has superb knowledge of a variety of subjects, always came well prepared at the numerous events I cajoled Malcolm to speak at, and holds his audience in a very professional manner.

He is an excellent speaker, who not only informs his audience but also keeps them well entertained during the process. I have been present at numerous presentations and have always enjoyed his delivery style, no matter how dry the subject matter may be

As a former colleague at UBA and later as a key client (at Afrinvest), I had course to observe Malcolm’s impressive capabilities as an excellent and highly resourceful business manager and industry expert. He was a significant contributor to the Nigerian Bond Market development project and has played leading roles in the set up of UBA Global Markets, UBA Global Investor Services as well as in the restructuring of Afrinvest as a financial services group. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any role he may wish to play as a Speaker, Consultant, service provider or executive in the financial services industry in general and investment management in particular.

Malcolm was a key interlocutor for the British High Commission in Nigeria. He was reliable and accurate in his briefings for senior government and political figures. This was the reason Malcolm stood out and was our first choice financial services briefing weapon. His honesty and humour coupled with his inability to pull his punches on tough messages was always very well received.
