“After ages I heard a story so mesmerising that it left me speechless. And, the story teller, Giles Abbott from U.K received a standing ovation. His magical words kept the audience glued for more than an hour, which was unbelievable. He has left an impact and his stories will ring in my ears for many more years to come.” - Divea, Delhi
"Very cinematic, and a tremendous ability to get under the metaphor of a story!” - David, Wales
