“Guy has delivered several sessions now for the RDLC Pirates, always in a relaxed manner so the audience are comfortable. Guy draws on his huge experience in the military to create parallels between that world and the corporate to inspire our membership to change their practices and mindset and to think wider and higher. Guy is credible, interesting and brings a unique and different view to the subject of leadership, management and team motivation. I will also add Guy is a top bloke and smart as a button! Capable of taking direction and is always super on point. Highly recommend!" Gary Goldsmith - RDLC Pirates

"Guy came in to deliver a session for a group of 10 of our staff using his experiences from his time in the Special Mission Units and translating them into key learnings for our team. His session was incredibly engaging and his ability to use experiences of high pressured situations, leadership, dedication, teamwork and compassion from his time in the Special Mission Units to help our team better understand how they can develop was brilliant. Guy’s presentation style was excellent and while dealing with examples of conflict he maintained a sense of humour to ensure that our team were relaxed and felt comfortable asking him questions. At the end of the session Guy fielded around 20-25 questions which demonstrated to me that the team thoroughly enjoyed his presentation. I would highly recommend Guy to any business looking to motivate and drive their workforce to increase their output and develop. First Class!" - Champions Celebrity Talent Management

"Guy delivered an insightful session which drew parallels between the military world and corporate world which has inspired our senior leadership team to change their mindset and think about how they can apply some of the lessons Guy shared. Guy is authentic in his style which makes the content of the session seem more relevant to our lives."

"Guy was extremely professional and gave a great insight into the transition to life after working in the forces. He was open and generous with his own personal experiences to put others at ease. He allowed people to question him with their own personal battles and offered his experienced opinion to try help them, this I feel benefitted those that attended immensely. I would gladly have Guy back for a talk again." - Grimsby Institute Group

"With this being our inaugural Veterans Event, we wanted a professional, engaging and knowledgeable figure to get across the many transferrable skills one gains from a military career and how these can be utilised to aid the transition from military to civilian life. Guy delivered on all levels outstandingly well. He was able to combine his experiences with a humour and warmth that immediately put the audience at ease. How he explained the way skills developed in the military mirrored what employers were looking for really hit home with our veterans and the feedback we received on the night was excellent. Everyone then went home with enhanced confidence of their future career prospects. I would have no problem recommending Guy Batchelor for any public speaking event and would certainly have him back at The Grimsby Institute for future events."

"Guy was superb at both events, the feedback has been very positive. He was open to adapting and learning the messages we wanted to hit home using his tales to support and he emphasised these very well. He came across very personable and our audience have all spoken about how much they enjoyed hearing him speak. Some work was required our side to get the slides right but the engagement with Guy to ensure a successful outcome overall was positive. Thank you for the recommendation and we would certainly endorse him." - Michael, Willmott Dixon
