Neil joined England Rugby Travel for the opening game of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations Championship in Paris. We had never worked with Neil before but his attitude, application, fun and humour around clients was excellent. He mixed insightful knowledge and understanding with the ability to be at ease around fans and it greatly added to the experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Neil or work with him again in the future.

All of the boys were inspired by your professionalism, knowledge, expertise and, importantly, approachability – you even won over the Welsh. The post-training session was the ideal way to wind down after the intensity of the physical and we all thoroughly enjoyed the Q & As, especially the As.
