We love working with a diverse and exciting array of clientele, from global enterprises, institutions and governments to small businesses and individuals. Take a closer look below to see what some of our previous clients have said about us.
They understand and have taken the time to get under the skin of the business… they know what they are doing, they have learnt the game and really take care of the issues for us. Simon Colebeck Managing Director
"Many thanks and thanks for all of your assistance so far, it has been excellent service by yourself!" - Claire
Champions have always delivered excellent speakers for our client corporate events, so I knew who to contact when we received a challenging brief.
Our client was running a seminar for veterinarian professionals to not only educate their audience, but to also offer something unique and non-technical but still relevant to the audience on a professional level with the aim of offering something 'different' to the delegates. With the event being held in Bordeaux we decided a celebrity chef would be a perfect choice and Champions suggested Rachel Allen.
The objective wasn't to demonstrate Rachel's cooking skills but to share her experience within a high-pressured profession with the ability to manage and cope under pressure, deliver outstanding service and to inspire those feeling daunted at the prospect of having a successful professional career whilst keeping a good work/life balance.
The seminar was a great success, attracted far more delegates than expected and we received fantastic reviews from those who attended. Both Rachel and champions were extremely professional throughout the project and a complete delight to work with.
Thank you very much - Really I feel I should be sending you, Charlotte and Kellie because you've all been so helpful and responsive! - Sophie Palmer, Senior Associate
Thanks, that’s a great list of speakers, I will review our agenda and see how we can incorporate them for our conference.Legal and General
"Oliver was great – everyone really enjoyed it, and our CEO speaks fluent German so they talked prior to the meeting and caught up. Plus he’s incredibly knowledgeable about Bayern Munich and is a season ticket holder himself, so it was a really great conversation to witness. We’ll be in touch later in the year as we think about next year’s programming!" - Sarah O'Brien
"Champions were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Izzy and her colleagues invested time to listen to the requirements for our events, suggested suitable speakers, responded to queries in a prompt manner, and were flexible on the procurement options. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your event". Jim - Business West
De Montford University have worked with Champions on a number of projects. Read the feedback that they had for us below.
“Thanks so much for supporting with our speaker for yesterday, I know it was last minute but you were such a great help!” - Gemma
"I write as Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law at De Montfort University, Leicester. On a number of projects Champions have worked with both the wider university and the Faculty and have always been highly professional and extremely enthusiastic in all aspects of their work. They have access to leading entrepreneurs in all spheres of business and commerce as well as leading public sector personnel. Probably the best example of their involvement with DMU has been via sponsorship of Fox’s Lair, a business course module with some thirty distinguished entrepreneurs acting as mentors, something which serves to provide direct contact to the world of business for our undergraduate students. It is a tremendous success and Champions plc are at the heart of it. My experience over many years has been that Champions plc provides a bespoke service of the highest standard." - David
“Many thanks for all of your help with this booking. Very straight forward - I will definitely use your company again for any speaker requirements.” - Donna
"It really is a pleasure working with Cat Mitchell and the Champions team. She makes the whole process hassle-free, efficient and goes above and beyond with her speedy response times and positive attitude. They are my go-to for any speaker request." - A&I Group
Champions provided an amazing service from start to finish. I contacted them asking for a speaker for a specific event and they provided me with a shortlist of potential options that were highly recommended. Champions worked with the limited budget that I had and were open and transparent throughout with any costs that would be incurred.
The planning of our event seemed way too easy as Champions liaised with and arranged timings and the whole set up with our speaker – Gareth Thomas, an inspirational, humble and truly approachable and friendly guy. The feedback on the event was fantastic, Gareth’s event helped our conversation on diversity and inclusion to become even more open. Thank you Champions for your support and advice throughout.
Thank you so much for today’s session and for your collaboration over the past few weeks – it’s been a pleasure!
"We recently hosted our first annual Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Day, and had a day full of external speakers hosting truly exceptional talks. We wanted the day to celebrate our rich diversity, and with the speakers arranged through Champions we were able to do exactly that.
"Chris arranged a briefing call with all of our speakers a few weeks before the event so they could really get an understanding of what we were looking to gain from the day, and in particular from their talks. The result was fantastic - inspiring, thought-provoking and educational sessions, and the feedback from all colleagues who attended was brilliant.
"This was the first time arranging external speakers through Champions, and it certainly won't be the last. The support on the day was fab, and Chris was on hand throughout should there be any issues (there weren't by the way, the speakers turned up on time and were fully briefed and ready to go). Working remotely has brought with it it's own set of challenges, but organising the speakers on the day was certainly not one of them.
"Thanks so much for your help in making the day such a success, I can't wait to work with you again in the future (starting with the next speaker we've got lined up in a few week's time!)."
"Thank you again for your help with these events - as we put together our plan for 2022, we will definitely think of future potential speakers we'd like to work with through Champions!" - Jahnavi

Looking forward to the next event I organise, I will of course be using you to book the next speaker." - Ebunoluwa, Associate Emerging Talent Manager, Skanska
"I am very grateful for Mark’s initial guidance on the speaker choice, he was very receptive to the de-brief regarding initial requirements and suggested really good options. Overall, I am delighted with the choice of the speaker – I cannot praise Maggie enough, and thank you to both you and Mark for making the entire experience so easy, relaxed and accessible; and for taking the time to walk me through the format and preparation." - Agata

We received many, many compliments from the delegates about Michael’s presence at this event. I only hope I get the opportunity to work with Champions and Mr Portillo again.

As a result I look forward to further contact with you in the future and will, no doubt, be back in touch, particularly in respect of this same event next year. In the meantime, I wish you continued success, and thank you, once again." - Duncan Stansfield, Aviva

Presented each boy with there trophy and smiled all the way through. He then signed autographs and posed for photos with everyone.

I look forward to working with Champions (UK) plc again and again and again…"
“To celebrate our Leeds based sports and social club reaching 25 years we organised a ball. As Leeds United won the football league title in the same year we were born we felt it fitting to have our event at Elland Road and to try and acquire one of the winning team to be our special guest for the evening.

"Our Annual Dinner is now regarded as one of the top cricket functions in Wales with over 200 attending every year. We have been lucky with the quality of our speakers for many years but had never used Champions before.

"At the end of March 2018, I worked with Serena at Champions to help organise a sportsman’s dinner to raise money to take a boys under 13 football team away to Holland. At the start of the process I had a rough idea as to what the evening was going to look like, but had no idea as to who would be a good guest for the event. I found Serena to be very helpful, she had a good knowledge of the type of speakers she could contract, their style and understood why they would work for the type of event we were looking to put on. After a few discussions we had selected a speaker (Terry Butcher). Serena set out very clearly how Terry liked to work, which was helpful in ensuring the event ran smoothly. Once Terry had agreed to supporting the Dinner, Serena arranged for me to have a phone call with her and Terry. It was great to see the interaction between Serena and Terry, it was clear that she had a worked with him before which allowed me to feel relaxed around him. The event went very well, Terry was a real gentleman and a great guest. The support I received from Serena before and after the event was of the highest standard. I would have no hesitation in working with Serena or Champions again, in fact I would look forward to it.” Darren Ingram - Chief Operating Officer - Velocity Composites Plc.

In particular, Champions' speed of response deserves a shout-out - our most recent booking was arranged less than 2 weeks before our event, so the stress of thinking we may have a keynote-shaped hole in our agenda was quickly taken away when Champions stepped in and delivered." - Marie, Head of Marketing, Network Group
