"Steve Backley Started our day with a bang, great motivational speaker that connected with every age group in the room which as they ranged from 16 to 87 took some doing!" Leigh,  NHS / PCT

"Steve recently attended, and spoke, at our National Dealer conference in Oman. The conference was in effect a two day meeting, with Steve's session closing out the formalities of the business trip at the end of day two, a notoriously a tough end of event slot. It would be fair to say that Steve re-energised our audience of 200 Dealer partners, offering an insightful view into his 15 years as a professional athlete. Steve's delivery of his presentation made it easy to transfer some of the challenges he faced in his professional career into our own business challenge, and the one key principal that I took away was his importance of understanding your plan. I have received much Dealer feedback from our conference and Steve's session was a highlight for many. A truly great athlete, motivational speaker and a thoroughly nice guy!" - Matthew, BP Oil (UK) Ltd

"Steve, thank you for your fantastic presentation at our conference. The messages were extremely relevant and appropriate for our audience. The feedback that I have received has been excellent and I am very grateful for the amount of time that you spent in both preparation and meeting our employees after the event. I don’t think that I could have found a more appropriate and engaging presenter." - Lisa, Honeywell Building Solutions

"The event went very well and Steve was fantastic. Multiple compliments from our guests and staff alike. Steve also handled our young Local Heroes, Laura and Ira, fantastically. All in all, as I think you’ll have gathered, we were pretty pleased with the morning!" Lloyds TSB
