Anthony’s talk yesterday was brilliant and very inspirational for everyone in the audience. With many amazed at how positive his views on life are now having gone through such pain. Very motivational for many! – on Anthony Bennett – Feb 2023
In a world full of conference speakers, Alison Edgar MBE is a relatable figure for audiences around the globe, providing them with lasting impact and inspiration that resonates, not only from a workplace situation but their whole lives. Working in the corporate world until she was age 46, Alison understands first-hand the challenges that delegates face on a daily basis. Alison champions actionable takeaways for every audience, and her upbeat, passionate delivery style rubs off on even the most skeptical audience members. Alison has recently sent us her new showreel.

He left the Marines to pursue a career in expeditions, travel journalism, and biology, achieving a First Class Honours Degree and becoming qualified as a marine biologist.

Chris Moon is an inspiring and motivating speaker on overcoming adversity after losing an arm and a leg when he trod on a mine in a minefield in East Africa. A former British Army officer, Chris had left the armed forces to work for a charity clearing landmines in Asia & Africa. Having already survived being taken prisoner in Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge and negotiated his release and that of two colleagues from threatened execution, Chris was supposed to be in a safe area in East Africa when disaster struck. Chris has very kindly sent us an updated showreel.
