You showed us quite clearly that the key to success is commitment - extraordinary achievements are built on extraordinary commitments - your talk was exceptional, thanks.

Just wanted to say thank you again for yesterday! We took a slight risk this year, we’ve not had a motivational speaker at these events before, but it paid off. We had such positive comments from the team afterwards, everyone was truly inspired by your story and there was much chat about it during the afternoon.

Thank you so much for attending our staff event and presenting for us twice.  Those attending have been hugely positive about your presentation, praising both your photos and your presentation style.  The number of questions received after your presentation, and the fact people wanted to stay longer to hear more of your stories, is testament to you

Looking for something different we invited Ben to present to the Carlisle United Business Club membership. From the off Ben’s engaging and relaxed style had our members enthralled. The business parallels of teamwork, planning, risk management, trust and hard work were apparent throughout the presentation, enabling members to relate Ben’s presentation to their own individual businesses. An excellent presentation that I wholeheartedly recommend to others.

Robin Brown - Commercial Director - Carlisle United Business Club - February 2015

Ben’s presentation hit the mark with our clients and staff. The combination of a powerful and inspirational message, combined with amazing pictures and video, had everyone fixated throughout. A great evening and thoroughly recommended. A measure of the success was 30 minutes of questions from the floor – followed by 2 hrs of additional questions over drinks.

Ben delivered an hour’s session at each of our three half-day staff conferences. His engaging style, and truly wonderful photographs, made the sessions a real success, and the messages that we wanted to deliver about “being valued within a team” were woven in perfectly, without being heavy-handed or too obvious.  A job well done!

Hello Ben, I’ve just got back from the National Trust Outdoors and Close to Nature conference.  Your presentation yesterday evening, was brilliant. Somehow you managed to make your challenge to climb Angel Falls relevant to the daily challenges we face working for the Trust and delivering our exciting and ambitious projects. Thanks again. Enjoyed your talk SO MUCH.

Marian Silvester - National Trust - June 2014

Thanks for a fantastic and well executed talk. You managed a great balance in terms of detail, as well as relevant links to a business context. You’re a very inspiring speaker, both highly energetic yet at the same time down-to-earth, with a manner everyone can relate to. The stories find a strong link to the lessons on what drives motivation and performance in teams and individuals, and demonstrate how a positive mindset and belief can overcome significant challenges on the way to reaching a goal. I highly recommend Ben as a speaker.

Thank you again for a wonderful talk on Friday. I had lots of positive feedback and the messages you conveyed served to motivate us throughout the rest of the day, and beyond, as we had hoped!

Ben presented his experiences to our team at the annual “away day”, which added greatly to the day. His speech was fascinating and inspirational. We thoroughly enjoyed his awe inspiring recollections of the climb up the falls.

Tina Barnes - HR Manager - Edison - June 2013

Thank you for your fantastic talk - many of the attendees commented how inspired they were by your experiences as well as your approach. We will definitely be taking some of your messages forward, applying them to our teams.

Bens approachable and open style, coupled with his superb presentation, delivered over two open sessions to the Councils workforce, engaged the employees throughout. Everyone was left feeling inspired and motivated – as well as having been given a valuable insight, to help support both their personal and working lives.

Clive Walsh - Principal Human Resources Officer - South Lakeland District Council - May 2013

Thank you for presenting at our company day. Your talk was fascinating, inspiring and extremely well received by everyone who took part. Your message needs no explanation and I hope it will encourage our team to push themselves as you so clearly have done.

Simon Dear - Chief Executive Officer - Tangent International - April 2013

Ben truly lived up to the expectation of being inspiring and motivational. With a polished presentation, yet a low key style, he was a great speaker - with messages that transferred from his incredible climbing exploits into the business world, keeping everyone totally engaged throughout.

Stuart McCran - Human Resources - Baillie Gifford - Edinburgh - January 2013

You went down a storm - it was pitched brilliantly to a tough crowd.

Andy Lord - Managing Director - Rethink Group plc - Manchester - December 2012

Ben gave a talk at our staff conference in December 2012. We were looking for someone who could motivate and entertain our staff of recruitment consultants and their support people. Previously we have had business oriented speakers but this time I wanted someone a bit different. It felt like a slight risk on our part but, as it transpired, it was a risk well worth taking. Ben delivered an excellent talk accompanied by fantastic pictures and video clips. The question and answer session went brilliantly and could have been a lot longer, such was the interest from the group. I thoroughly recommend him.

Alan Charlesworth - Managing Director - IPS Group Ltd, London - December 2012

Your speech provided a wonderful insight into your amazing exploits. You are an inspirational figure, an admirable example of what can be attained by extending the limits of personal motivation and challenge. We thoroughly enjoyed your visit, and have had lots of great feedback.

Kate McNeill - DECATHOLN - August 2012
