To meet an interesting client brief, one adventurer filmed himself speaking in a tree house in a full tuxedo! Virtual events have made all sorts of things possible...
Ever adaptable, our speakers have transformed their homes to create a professional space to speak to client events on zoom or other virtual platforms.
When a client has preferred, our speakers have gone to a professional studio and delivered a presentation before a filming crew with a green screen behind them so that the client can have the talk footage along with inspirational film and slides in good time before their online event. (For one client, on the day itself, the speaker went online to do a live Q&A event immediately after her talk was shown. It worked really well.)
We were happy to oblige when one client wanted the speaker to travel to the venue where she could be filmed in situ as she hosted an online awards event.
We thought you might like to see a few recent testimonials for virtual events:
‘We thoroughly enjoyed having Dee share her insights and leadership lessons with our London Business School alumni community. Engaging, thought provoking and humble, her story resonated so strongly with our community that we are already being asked to bring her back in person next semester!’
(Just so you know, one particular Alumni commented: "I wish we could have seen Dee in person. Please invite her back after lockdown." "Very impressive and great way to learn leadership skills" "fantastic event! Best one yet.")
London Business School
‘In short, Ed's talk was amazing. Everything about the session suited our team perfectly and everybody has been incredibly positive, inspired and taken plenty of learnings from him.
‘He was incredibly open to the questions asked as well. Seriously, seriously impressed, so thank you and thank him. It genuinely lifted what's been a pretty tough year for some of our team.'
‘Our client - a major UK bank - wanted a fresh perspective on coping with isolation, resilience, remote leadership and adaptability in the face of disruption. Dee recorded a series of videos from her home that delivered on all fronts - understanding her audience and speaking with an authority and authenticity that really resonated.’
THE DOORSTEP MILE: LIVING MORE ADVENTUROUSLY, EVERY DAY
“As much as you probably like the idea of lighting even a little fire under your life, I know how hard it can be to actually make any changes.
We all dream of achieving the extraordinary in our lives, our personal version of trekking to the South Pole. Having failed at that myself, but eventually come out the other end smiling, I now believe there is something even more important than striving for the remarkable. And that is to stop dreaming about an ‘adventure of a lifetime’, and instead pursue a lifetime of living adventurously through a daily pledge to push myself a little, scare myself now and then, and remain curious.” Alastair

Ed Stafford: Man Woman Child Wild premieres on September 29 on Discovery Channel at 8pm.
Ed & Laura spent a month on an uninhabited island in Indonesia with their 20-month-old son Ran to make the documentary series Ed Stafford: Man Woman Child Wild. The couple were totally self-sufficient during their parenting adventure on one of Indonesia’s 18,000 islands, an hour away from civilisation.
Endurance adventure athlete Sean Conway broke the World Record for the fastest crossing of Europe by bicycle unsupported - an astonishing feat.
Starting on April 2018 in Cabo de Roca on the west coast of Portugal, Sean cycled 4,500 miles across Europe, finishing at the Russian town of Ufa.
As those who follow Sean's adventures will guess, Sean did not do this the easy way! The successful attempt was unsupported and Sean carried all of his kit with him along the way.
Laura Bingham lead a world-first expedition to navigate the Essquibo river in South America from source to sea in 2018.
From its remote jungle source in the Acarai Mountains on Guyana’s southern border with Brazil, the Essequibo River flows north through rainforest until it meets the Atlantic Ocean.
Still only in her mid-twenties, Laura led a team of two other women, Ness Knight and Pip Stewart, through tough terrain to find the source on foot and then paddled down the river negotiating rapids and waterfalls through stunning jungle with rich biodiversity regularly spotting caiman, jaguars and various species of monkey along the way.
