With a background in theatre and television Duncan is equally at home working with a tightly written script, developing his own or improvising ad hoc. A wealth of experience as a presenter, facilitator and host makes him a calm, reassuring presence under pressure. He is happy to participate in rehearsals, share his experience and feedback with speakers, to help make the event a success. Duncan has worked with many of the UK’s most senior executives, building a relaxed rapport with them. He can quickly and incisively get under the skin of their business and understand their industry issues in depth.
