We would highly recommend him.

Tansel is an engaging and upbeat presenter and kept participants engaged throughout the session. It's surprising how quickly his methods on retaining information can be understood and implemented. In an age where we are overwhelmed by information and detail, it's good to know that there are techniques out there that work.

Tansel Ali is an amazing talent, entertainer and person. He engages an audience so well in having them hanging off every word he recalls from his amazing mind. Our audience was in awe of him being able to recall facts and figures when most of us struggle to remember our phone number or an anniversary.
