Towards the end of our season we like to close our National Trust property with spooky tales of ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Having met Tom and being introduced to his trade of storytelling I thought that this time I would pass the mantle on and ask him to relay the scary tales. So it was on a dark rainy Halloween afternoon that Tom recounted tales of ghosts and paranormal activity to a paying audience of around 50 people. It is always a risk when you employ the services of somebody for the first time but Tom did not disappoint. He certainly looked the part and held our audience for the best part of an hour, drawing them in with clear precise annunciation and then the ability to make them jump or laugh with perfect timing. Tom himself was a very pleasant person to work with and what I found particularly impressive was that with only one week to prepare his work was well researched and his script was well planned and thought out. Tom will be working for us again this season and I would not hesitate to recommend him to speak at an event or occasion you may be planning.

Blank Media Collective worked with Tom on a project called BlankWeekend celebrating the organisation's fourth Birthday. Throughout the time working with Tom both in the run-up to the event and the actual execution, we were very impressed with his professional approach. Tom's enthusiasm and dedication to his work is admirable and during the event he caught the attention of everyone around him. A true art form, story-telling is a real skill and Tom is blessed with this talent. Blank Media Collective would be delighted to recommend Tom to anyone interested and hope to work with him again in the future. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative

Tom's a great storyteller - consistently entertaining and original in his thought processes. We've used Tom at big and small events, both static and moving round the site. Highly recommended.

Tom Goodale is a delightful character whose work is both entertaining and inspirational. He is always very well received when he performs at our venue and his stories are captivating. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Tom again nor would I hesitate to recommend him to others.
