What They Say

“Having recently attended Philippos’ “Abracadabra” keynote speech for professionals, the only word that comes to my mind is... ingenious! Philippos’ gift as a charismatic speaker shines through a rare blend of masterful storytelling, magical artistry and deep knowledge of current organisational challenges in the modern workplace. I will definitely be attending Philippos' future events and I can highly recommend him as a very effective and highly skilled public speaker. Always an inspiration!

Philippos managed to inspire, uplift and captivate an entire audience during his flagship "Abracadabra" keynote speech. With his sharp-witted personality and uplift tempo, he was very relaxed, consistent and capable of transmitting to an audience comprising of more than 150 participants (coming from very diverse professional backgrounds) his key points in an effective, clear and logical manner. The content of his keynote speech itself was very interesting, introducing new conceptual ideas and management techniques that I, for sure, will be using in the future.

I recently had the chance to attend Philippos Aristotelous' Abracadabra event. Philippos' style of sharing the content of his presentation and his constant and authentic engagement with the audience not only kept the subject matter interesting but also allowed the audience to easily relate to the scenarios he was referring to. Looking forward to attending the next one.

I was recently fortunate enough to attend Philippos Aristotelous' Abracadabra event. This was the first time I had attended an event of Philippos and I will definitely be following his work and going to future events. He was able to connect extremely well with the audience and keep us interested at all times. His examples were clear and real - you could easily imagine yourself in his scenarios. To conclude, I believe to be a trainer and a coach is something you need to have and Philippos definitely has it. Well done on a very successful event!
