Every now and then I come across a speaker who really makes me sit up and listen.
Winston is one of those rare speakers.
Always smiling and laughing, Winston has a great way of putting his audiences at ease and engaging with them, as he tells his stories. He is incredibly generous, sharing original and inventive advice with his audiences, showing them how to be more resilient and grateful for what they have.
Every time I hear Winston speak I learn something new from him. It is always a pleasure being in the audience when Winston takes to the stage.
Winston is a force of nature. His cheeky personality transcends any other initial impression you may be tempted to form. I have seen him speak a couple of times and have been really impressed by the way he focuses on delivering value to his audience.
He moves around more than you might expect and addresses, quickly, those obvious questions that audiences have when they first meet him.
He's a delightful character and has strong messages to share regarding how to break free from your limitations, and creating a culture of grit and resilience in organisations.
Winston really makes you think. Why do we accept what we don't need to accept as our place in life. Why do we blame others when we can accept the situation and take "Extreme Ownership" and work out how to turn the challenges we face to our advantage. Key messages for everyone in life and especially in business conveyed with passion and personality.
Thank you Winston from all of us – the presentation was everything I hoped for…you are an inspiration; lots for us all to reflect upon.
Winston can inspire your audience to feel more motivated and really believe that they can accomplish all the things that they would like to do in life!
He is a great teacher on resilience and has been a huge inspiration to the groups that we have brought him to.
“It was a pleasure having Winston speak to over 500 entrepreneurs at our Breakthrough Success Summit in London.”
Winston is the epitome of resilience, super engaging and his audience feedback was fantastic!
“Winston delivered a fantastic TED Talk that has received massive attention on YouTube!”
His specialist topic ‘resilience’ is a great fit for any corporate team event or occasion.
We have just been overwhelmed with Winston’s personality and his ability to impact any audience that he speaks to!
What we love the most is that after hearing Winston speak, people go away and make drastic changes as a result, which is the yard stick that any speaker should be measured against – that ability to bring change and transformation to individuals!
Dame Kelly’s visit exceeded our expectations, she really did go above and beyond, not only talking to our Investors in Gold participants but then taking the time to speak individually to colleagues during her guided tour of the building. All of our colleagues really enjoyed sharing in the experience and it was echoed by all what a lovely and personable lady she is.
Kelly did a fabulous job in delivering to the brief that she was set. She is so natural, and nice, that the messages she delivers (in her own style) really strike home and her frankness about her own personal journey added to this. The whole site was absolutely buzzing about Kelly’s visit. I have had dozens of emails and personal messages commenting on how wonderful Kelly’s presentation was, and her willingness to engage with people on site. There was one word that has popped up over and over again… Inspirational. The whole site feels privileged to have met Kelly and heard about her journey (and to have seen her medals!).
Dame Kelly Holmes is extremely inspirational and motivational. She should be commended for being such an approachable, down to earth and charming person who has achieved such extraordinary things. An excellent day and superb guests, especially Kelly who made many people’s day in 20CS.
Having Dame Kelly at our event definitely added some magic and excitement. Everyone loved seeing her there and it was just brilliant that she ran with the children in the 2.5km, then again as part of the 10km. She spoke to so many people, had lots of photos taken and made a massive impact on the day. A huge thank you to Kelly for her support, it was just wonderful.GlaxoSmithKlineDame Kelly Holmes spoke inspirationally about her journey to world class excellence. We got a personal and revealing insight into the self-disciplined, goal-orientated planning that underpinned her years of hard work. This was not a story of a single athlete but rather the leading person in a dedicated and professional team. Dame Kelly’s message resounded completely across all levels in our organisation
