Ed Jackson

Former Rugby Player & Leading Speaker

“Ed gave an insightful speech at Taunton School’s Celebration day on the 23rd of June. His personal story made it easy for both children and adults to connect. I would highly recommend Ed as a Speaker when you need a message of inspiration.”

Ed Jackson’s professional rugby career spanned ten years. He played for Bath, Wasps, London Welsh and the Gwent Dragons before suffering a spinal cord injury In April 2017, which left him paralysed. Since then, he has been undergoing intensive rehabilitation and has defied the odds after being told he may never walk again.

Not only has Ed got back on his feet but he has turned his sights to the mountains; conquering peaks to raise awareness of spinal cord injuries, fund-raise for the charities that have helped him and set an example for others facing a seemingly impossible task.

“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 with in 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 candor 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 heart beat and would highly recommend him as a speaker at relevant events.” – Carolyn
