"Very inspiring talk from Ed Jackson at Microsoft yesterday. Incredible story, amazing what can be achieved with the right mindset and determination. Highly recommend" - Iwan, Director of Customer Programs, Microsoft 

"Ed ran two sessions over Zoom for around 165 colleagues at Diageo. With resilience as the key theme, Ed ran us through his inspiring story and provided the teams with a really clear summary of relatable and relevant advice. The feedback has been fantastic, with team members coming away inspired, more hopeful and significantly more positive about how we can reframe the challenges we're facing at the moment and come out stronger" - Sally, Head of Field Sales, Diageo

"I was recommended to get in touch with Ed regarding his inspiring story around his road to recovery as I was trying to source a motivational keynote speaker for one of our flagship corporate events in London. Not only was Ed a pleasure to work within the build-up to the event, he was timely in communications and very open on his content which made my role a lot easier! Ed truly has an amazing story to tell and his presentation style is confident yet humble which made for a great keynote talk that was enthused over by all attendees who went to the session. Ed is early on in his journey and I know that everyone that attended, myself included, will be following his story more closely to see what other professional and personal goals he will achieve." - Natasha, In-House Recruitment Network

"Ed Jackson recently accepted an invitation to address our new Graduates, their parents and our distinguished guests at 2 of the Health and Life Sciences Graduation ceremonies at Oxford Brookes University. Ed enthusiastically responded to the invitation and to the brief and delivered a hugely inspirational speech on each occasion. In his address, Ed reflected on his journey with great candour and bravery, however it was his ability to communicate immense positivity and hope through his words and the delivery of them that was truly exceptional. Oxford Brookes felt very privileged to have shared Ed's story and his advice for success. We would invite Ed back to speak in a heartbeat and would highly recommend him as a speaker at relevant events." - Carolyn
