Type Of Speaker


Anthony’s engaging style and ability to tailor his presentation/personal story to the audience set the two-day conference off on a high note – within twenty minutes Anthony variously made the audience both laugh and cry as well as telling an uplifting tale of teamwork within a stressful and highly emotionally charged environment – and it was at the charity. The passion he demonstrates when sharing his experiences; engaging and inspiring his audience, play. The feedback from the sessions was simply the most positive I have ever known.

Anthony’s presentation to the full cohort of 270 Year 12 students was a real triumph. Rarely can a speaker hold the audience so intently for such a long time but Anthony’s delivery, his anecdotes and his inspirational message of overcoming adversity were listened to by all of our young adults with respect, enthusiasm and wide-eyed wonder. I would (and have) asked Anthony to return and would encourage many other schools as possible to do the same. The change in people’s attitudes after Anthony’s talk was palpable and clear, we at Greenford High School are really delighted that we found such an engaging and passionate young man.
Mr. Jones, Assistant Head Teacher, Greenford High School

Since 2006, Anthony has been a tremendous asset to the charity. The passion he demonstrates when sharing his experiences; engaging and inspiring his audience, played an important role in helping the charity to secure a £7.5 mil+ partnership with Whitbread plc. His natural ability to connect with, inspire and motivate people to support fundraising and to push themselves towards personal success has been astounding. He carries such positivity and it’s a pleasure to witness the impact he has on people, engaging them in fundraising and helping them to understand the ability they have to make a real difference to others.
Tim Johnson, CEO, Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity

We invited Anthony to our sales conference in Spain. He was truly motivational and inspiring. A joy to be with and an amazing individual. Highly recommended.

At our recent Pride and Practice event, Salisbury NHS had the privilege of hearing the personal journey of Anthony Bennett. This young man through his story ensured that we celebrated all that is good about the NHS but more importantly created the opportunity for us to consider our personal focus and commitment to being the best we can be. Thank you Anthony for pushing us forward on our improvement journey.
Cara Charles Bark, CEO, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust

Everything ran very smoothly and was awesome to have Anthony along to make it a bit more interesting and definitely inspired everyone for sure! Everyone was very positive about him so the outcome was excellent.
Coastal Group

Thank you for sharing your inspirational story and for being so patient and engaging with staff even after the event had finished. This represented a real touch of class and was I think completely consistent with how you came across on the day. Your journey was extremely powerful and resonated beyond the upfront struggle of it all and tied in seamlessly with the theme of the day which was – together.
Tower Hamlets

It went great! He’s a great guy! The audience loved him and his story, someone commented that it reminds us that life is just too short.
Swim England

We have had many comments from those that attended. He definitely gave off such a positive vibe from the stage and had everybody captivated, on the edge of their seats. He uplifted the whole room and truly inspired us to continue doing our best and seizing opportunities. Such a phenomenal speaker. I think what makes him unique is one his positivity but he is so present and went the extra mile to find out about what we do as a society or our goals in life. Having a speaker take that time added a personal touch.
Exeter University

Anthony was absolutely brilliant!  He is probably one of the most inspirational speakers I have ever heard.  He spoke from the heart in such a natural way, it was like having a 1:1 chat with him and he engaged the students from the outset. Anthony’s outlook on life and the way he tackles that may be out of his comfort zone certainly made me think!  It was a real pleasure to meet such a lovely, inspirational young man and I am sure that we will be asking Anthony to speak again at one of our future events.
Northwest Skills Development Network

Anthony went down a STORM! Brilliant energy. Great message. Everyone left feeling very inspired.
Action for Children – April 2023

Needles to say, Anthony was amazing and left everyone inspired to say yes and the courage to step outside of their comfort zone. A few tears were wiped away as his mother joined him in the front!
