Steve was phenomenal. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. He’s such an inspirational speaker and stayed right on our conference theme. You could have heard a pin drop during his talk.
Steve was absolutely awesome. We have had so many immensely positive messages of how his humility, his determination, resilience and achievements through some of the toughest blows anyone could be dealt has been a real eye opener and inspiration to so many of us. A very genuine thank you from us all. Thank you also to Steve for taking the time to speak to people after his speech. It added a lovely personal touch.
I just wanted to let you know that Steve was fantastic on Monday and we have had excellent feedback from our members about his talk. Some quotes: “The key note speaker was very inspirational” and “Steve was a brilliant speaker!” A large number listed his name as what they liked best about the conference.
Absolutely fantastic speaker! I don’t think I have ever heard someone speak so openly and honestly about their life experiences and how it has shaped their future. A truly inspiring guy.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Steve. Everyone I speak to is all saying how inspirational he was. We have even had comments that he has been the best guest speaker they’ve seen here at our Awards. The students, parents and staff were literally queuing up to meet him. It was an honour, as always, to welcome him to Plumpton and we look forward to seeing him again soon. Thank you so much.
Steve was fabulous as always. We very much enjoy working with him and he is a much loved friend of the Symposium. Our delegates were engaged and delighted by his story. A captured audience I would say.
The most inspiring and motivational speech I have ever heard – I was crying at the end. Standing ovation was well deserved. I wish I could rate this higher than a 10/10!
Steve was brilliant today, exactly what we were looking for! He was excellent, so engaging – would love to have him back again! He is the best speaker that we have ever had in here and really mapped his story around the messaging that we wanted to get across. People are still raving about him today, they thought he was excellent! He was warmly received and left a most lasting impression on all.
It was great to have Steve with us. He is an inspiring young man with an amazing personal story to tell. What I take away from his story is that many things become possible if you believe and have others to believe in you. Steve has been talking to our staff at several occasions and was always ranked highlight of the event. We look forward to continuing to work with him.
Steve is a highly valued colleague at the Youth Sport Trust. He has worked on a number of programmes inspiring and motivating young people to fulfill their potential in sport and in life. He is a wonderful communicator with a great story to tell – a true inspiration.
Steve has been a wonderful advocate for not only Sky Sports Living for Sport but Sport in general. He shares his incredible story in a humble but utterly compelling way. Over the 5 years I’ve known Steve I’ve seen young and old captivated and inspired. He is a true champion in every way and has made huge impact on the success of our initiative.
We were honoured to have Steve come and speak to a group of our senior management team from the UK at a recent away day. His story was not only inspirational and enlightening but showed what a determined character he is and that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. He talked through his experiences and the challenges he has had to overcome in his life and he nearly drew parallels into the world of business. His style is exactly how he is as a person, confident, warm, friendly, funny and very engaging. Everyone felt truly inspired and energised by his talk and I would highly recommend Steve as a speaker at any event. “One of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard”
