“Gavin’s keynote injected massive energy into our event and got everyone enthused from the get-go. His messages are simple, powerful and universal, so everyone was able to identify with them, despite our having a huge range of job roles attending the conference. There was lots of audience participation, which meant everyone was engaged and the talk was delivered with a great sense of humour, winning over even the most sceptical delegates. The feedback from our staff was that it was the best event delivered to date, and Gavin’s talk was definitely a critical success factor in that.”

– Maha Hamer, CLS Group Marketing Manager.

“We booked Gavin to join us for our bi-ennial conference as our keynote speaker. This is a prestigious event with a high-calibre of client so it is important to start the event off on the right foot. Gavin did exactly that by delivering a blend of thought provoking ideas as well as inspiration and motivation based on his wide experience in selling and negotiation. His enthusiasm and charisma was well-received and our audience will no doubt be talking about some of the principles discussed for some time to come. Thanks Gavin!”

– Stephen Moore, Fix-A-Form

“We recently used Gavin’s skills to present at our recent Installer Conference and he very much exceeded all our expectations. Before his speech he researched our industry and listened to our needs and what we wanted to achieve as a company from Gavin speaking. Gavin gave us our ‘5 goals to sales success’ and that was fun, educational and inspiring and all our attendees went away learning new skills and fully motivated to put them into practise. We would recommend Gavin’s services to any company.”

– Phil Hurley, Managing Director, Nibe

“What do you look for when you look for a conference speaker? If it’s someone inspirational, engaging and thought-provoking then Gavin is your man. His style of delivery was loved by our delegates and the content was tailored to give them strategies that they will be able to use back in the work place to win more sales. People were buzzing with ideas after his talk. Working with Gavin was easy too as he took the time to understand our brief, our audience and our industry thus ensuring that his talk was right on the money. Book him for your next event.”

– Gordon Glenister, Director General, BPMA

“Taking a risk by hiring your keynote/guest speaker from searching the web and viewing LinkedIn recommendations could be seen as extremely foolhardy. However I am delighted to say it was one of the best risks I have taken. Gavin’s presentation was absolutely on the mark… motivational, inspirational and full of take-away-tools for our teams. I am also convinced our ROI will be many fold as our Sales teams put his 5.5 steps into action and look forward to working with him again.”

– Liz Carnell, Director, The Venue Experience Team.

– Suzanne Van Ardenne, Marketing Manager, Crocs

“My greatest challenge in organising our annual sales conference is, “Will the motivational speaker deliver?” With 200+ sales people to satisfy it’s a challenging task. Gavin did and MORE! He understood his audience, pitched the message perfectly and left them with a warm glow. Couldn’t ask for anything more.”

– Declan Bermingham – Head of Operational Marketing, Neopost

“The theme at our recent European Sales Conference was “Delivering the Difference” and Gavin´s key note presentation was 100% spot on! With minimal background information, his ability to understand our corporation and its culture was both insightful and impressive to say the least. As a natural born salesman, Gavin instantly bonded with our senior sales delegates and his energy levels simply just blew everyone away.”

“Many thanks for such an inspiring session at the MOLLY MAID Setting Sale Conference. With all our Franchise Owners so engrossed in their business day in day out, they seldom have the luxury to take time out and review their whole presentation and approach to their customers. We’ve had an overwhelming response of congratulations for the Conference, and your key reminder to them to remain positive and upbeat to gain and keep customers will be one of the lasting messages.”

– Jonathan Holden, Director Franchise Support, Molly Maid

“Choosing a ‘motivational’ speaker is always a perilous task for any Conference, but we made life doubly hard for Gavin by giving him the final slot of the day when the bar was calling! However, he delivered exactly what we asked for – a humorous, engaging presentation that kept the 200+ audience interested throughout and sent them away feeling positive about the opportunities in front of them. Gavin also took the time to understand our business and tailor his speech to provide real-life examples that the audience could immediately relate to. We were extremely impressed.”

– Ben Howell, Communications Manager, Mint Financial Services

“Your positive and uplifting session made a very positive contribution to the whole day and helped to motivate the franchisees for the challenges ahead. All too often speakers tend to patronise and talk of how good they are – this was certainly not the case. Thank you. We have received excellent feedback from our guests on how much they enjoyed the day and the fact that this was their best conference ever.”

– Berkeley Harris, Head of National Franchise Team, WPA

“Gavin delivered a tailored & highly motivating presentation training programme for our senior UK executives, over 3 days, with an intensive & illuminating workload. If you want to learn how to make interesting Powerpoint slides, don’t go to Gavin. If you want to learn how to change your mindset to become a powerful & confident presenter, one that can engage their audience & clearly convey their key messages & wanted outcomes, then Gavin is most definitely the man for you!

Our senior executives each presented to an audience of over 250 people shortly after spending time with Gavin. The marked improvements were massive, as evidenced by formal feedback from the delegates, most of whom had heard these presenters before, so were able to make direct comparisons. The skills & techniques learnt have stayed with them & are being implemented regularly in all presentations, big or small.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gavin. His ability to understand your business & get straight to the heart of matter is second to none & the results speak for themselves.”

– Penny Randall, Operational Marketing Director, Renault Trucks UK Ltd
