"Mark was a speaker at Leicester Tigers for a game that we played against London Welsh. With over 300 people in the room, Mark used different techniques to keep everyone engaged and interested in what he was saying. With mostly business men and sports fans in the room Mark was able to conduct himself in a manner that suited both parties and children. Mark’s experience in life after sport was extremely interesting and our 1st team players took this in as something they need to start thinking about as well. The interactivity that Mark had with our guests was exceptional and spent over an hour signing autographs and having photos and it was a pleasure to host him and have him as our guest speaker." - Emily, Leicester Tigers

"Everything went to plan and we want to thank you so much for your help. Mark Foster was excellent and we shall be back next year for another sporting champion!!" - Active Tameside

"Just want to say a huge thank you for all of your help with securing Mark Foster as guest speaker at our annual prize giving. Mark was truly fantastic. His speech was excellent, a motivational message for students, entertaining and interesting for parents and engaging for the whole audience. We received so many positive comments. He took the time to speak to all 135 students by name and his congratulations to them were warm and personal. He made it a very special occasion for the students, parents , staff and invited guests. He willingly stayed for what seemed like ages while photographs were taken and his patience delighted everyone. It was a great success and so we wish to extend our thanks to Mark.  What a lovely, genuine person he is and he made an excellent role model for the children.  His assembly was pitched just right and was very motivational and fitted perfectly with our school ethos around resilience and having a growth mindset.  The children learned so much and are now really looking forward to the upcoming Olympics." - Kirsty, Gorse Hill Primary School

"It went really well thank you! They were really pleased with how it went and expressed how perfect he was for the role.  Once again, thank you very much for your help on this – it was very last minute I know but thanks again." - Alcohol Awareness Week

"Mark was a spokesperson for Gillette’s International Men’s day campaign where we wanted to raise awareness of men’s health but importantly male role models and the impact they can have. Mark spoke eloquently on his experiences growing up and what he sees as important for kids growing up. He really nailed the messaging and as a last minute brief to him he delivered above and beyond what we could have asked for." – Mark, HK Strategies

"He was absolutely fantastic, our clients loved him! The queue for photos with him after his speech was never ending!" – Harriet, Thomsons

"The event was a huge success, Mark was a great speaker and we have had plenty of compliments following the event. Please do pass on my thanks again to Mark. We all found him so approachable and he told his story to a wide ranging audience and managed to engage everyone – pupils, parents and staff alike. He may like to know that we also raised over £3000 towards the school charities so thank you for his help in the various activities throughout the evening that supported that." - Nicki, Wycombe Abbey School

"Mark was the guest speaker at our end of year Prize Day and celebrations. He proved to be an excellent match for the occasion, engaging with every single prize winner and addressing an inspirational speech to all pupils, parents and guests. He also gave much of himself after the ceremony, interacting with the school community for photos and autographs. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome for the day, and are grateful to Champions Speakers for their continued support with our events." - Jamie, Berkhamsted Prep School

"Mark was fantastic.  He spoke really well and engaged with all the children as well as the adults.  He signed autographs and had lots of photos and was a lovely guy to chat to, please thank him so much from us." - Judy, Chesham Prep School

"Our pupils and staff enjoyed the visit enormously and Mark was great with all of the children. Please pass on my thanks to him for making the event so engaging and interesting for everyone." 

"I’d like to thank Mark for his massive contribution to our event. He was a total hit with the audience and is scoring 10/10 in our post event survey! From my perspective, he encapsulated the brief perfectly and got all the messages I needed out to the team in a really compelling but down to earth way. His style was relaxed but he had everyone hooked from the start, right through to the end. The Q&A was a real highlight and I really appreciate him addressing the many questions from the floor in such an encouraging way. Inspirational! Mark was open, warm, friendly and extremely polite to everyone he met on the night and very accommodating to the many ‘selfie’ requests. Genuinely a lovely human being! Everyone was still talking about Mark the next day which shows the deep impact he had on the team and I’m sure this will encourage them to test themselves ‘beyond limits’ in the future."- Nathalie, BT & EE

"Once again, our greatest thanks for your help in lining Mark up for our event. He was a huge success and such a great guy." - Jonathan, Lazard

"Thanks for the email. All went well on Thursday thank you. We were very impressed with Mark and his talk. The content was pitched well and Mark accommodated questioning and took time for photos etc at the end which went down very well with delegates. Thank you to you and other staff at Champions. The service we received was very good which made the whole process very easy to navigate. Thank you!" - Oli, Bramble Infant School & Nursery

"I just wanted to drop you a brief line about our evening with Mark. You were absolutely right to recommend him to us and thank you for that. It was a great evening enjoyed by everyone who turned up and who have taken great delight in regaling all of those members who didn’t, with how good it was. His talk was just right for the guests as proven by the quantity of questions asked in the time after he had finished speaking—they would have gone on for far longer if we hadn’t put a stop to it! His delivery is so casual which went down really well with the audience. Apparently the golf club has rarely if ever, attracted as many guests to any fee paying function as far back as anyone can remember. You have set the bar very high for the next time I call you up!!" - Paul, Buckingham Golf Club

"Firstly, thank you kindly for recommending Mark Foster. He was fantastic, very personable and a brilliant speaker. He very openly shared his personal and professional stories, which were very inspiring and thoroughly engaged the audience. We’re received great feedback so far and I really appreciate you suggesting him" - Grace, American Express

" - Sara, Oracle
