Sean Conway: Endurance Adventurer (and first-ever Triathlon the length of Britain)

'Just back from listening to Sean’s extraordinarily inspirational talk. The sixth form loved him and there was a queue of Year 13 lads trying to get ‘selfies’ with him. One of Year 10, curious about all the fuss, asked me if Sean was a rock star - I told him he was better than that, that he was a professional adventurer!' Cheam School

 

Laura Bingham: Adventurer and Model

'We were very impressed by Laura's talk to the students and they certainly enjoyed listening to the challenges that she overcame.  We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Laura.' Crompton House School

 

Neil Laughton: Entrepreneur and Adventurer

'Neil's talk was exceptionally well tailored to inspire our pupils.  Not only did it put into context the skills that we have been focusing on but he was also incredibly inspirational.  I wish Neil the best of luck in his next adventures and look forward to welcoming him back to talk about them.  Many thanks for your help too.'  Wellington College

 

Rachel Smith: Atlantic Rower & GB Dragon Boat Racing Team

'Rachel is a gifted, inspirational speaker who effortlessly captures the interest and full engagement of her audience, irrespective of age. She conveys the awe and wonder of her accomplishments, alongside great determination, resilience and optimism. All of us were moved to tears as she immersed us in her story and we all stepped of the boat with her, as she sailed in to Antigua! Put simply, Rachel captivates and enthuses her audience, filling everyone with the utmost belief that they too have the capacity ‘to row their own ocean’ and realise their dreams and ambitions in life!'  Woodlands Primary School

 

Alastair Humphreys: Adventurer & Writer

 ‘He was brilliant – humble, funny, engaging. I’ve never had so much positive feedback from parents and staff who say he was the best in my 8 years as Head. He made sure his talk picked out points in mine, and he was bang on 30 minutes.’  St Olaves

 

Colonel John Blashford-Snell OBE: Explorer & Founder of Operation Raleigh

'We were delighted when we secured Colonel Blashford-Snell for our Presentation Evening and he didn’t disappoint. Not only did he regale us with tales of exploration and adventure and inspire our students to get out and see the world, but he also showed genuine interest in our prize-winners, speaking to them individually as he presented their awards.' Beths Grammar School

 

Geoff Holt MBE: record-setting Yachtsman

'Over the years I have been to a number of those evenings, but yesterday's was without doubt the best and your contribution played a huge part in making it such a success. You managed to inspire and move both parents and pupils (no mean feat). All the boys were hanging on your every word.' William Ellis School

 

Dee Caffari MBE: Yachtswoman & Triple World-Record Holder

‘Dee was the perfect speaker for our unusual prize giving as the school was closing after 190 years it was an emotional and somewhat charged day.  She was warm, her message was clear and on target and she engaged really well with the girls and guests.’ Casterton School

 

James Brickell: Wildlife TV Director and Producer

'We were delighted to welcome James as our guest speaker for our Sixth Form Awards Evening. The students were very inspired by his work with animals, and his humble approach in describing his amazing career went down exceptionally well with staff, parents, governors, students and guests of the school. He presented over 80 awards on the evening and spoke for half an hour about working with David Attenborough and the series Life in Cold Blood. We could have listened for a lot longer! It was a pleasure to meet James and he was an excellent choice of speaker for us.' Cheltenham School


Andy Pag: Eco-Adventurer & Speaker on Sustainability

'Andy's visit fired the imagination of our pupils, triggering debate and contributions from even the shyest pupils of the school.' The New International School of Thailand

 

Sebastien Foucan: Founder of Freerunning

'The talk from Sebastian was really inspirational for the students. The students and teaching staff were intrigued by his philosophy: there are many routes to success and not all of them are easy to understand, but if you remain focused and determined to overcome any obstacles before you, you are more likely to succeed in your chosen goal.' Westminster Kingsway College
