On the evening of Thursday 22nd October, David (Founder of the Speaker Expert) hosted the first of what is set to be many QuestionTime events. The QuestionTime evening was organised by David and the Essex FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) team. The event which was held at the Anglian Ruskin University in Chelmsford, Essex was a super success and the feedback from the audience was extremely positive.
