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.

Wellbeing Symposium 2018

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!

Rainbow International Conference 2018

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.

Paddy Power Own It Event

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.
