“ I've found the past few weeks working with Shane rejuvenating. I'm back punching hard, enjoying my boxing and am now eager to get back to winning ways. I'm confident that now with the right coach I will reach the very top of the sport.”
Kate spoke at the Financial Times Women at the Top Summit, having just returned from Rio where she led the GB women's hockey team to Olympic victory. She gave a fascinating, insightful interview on leadership, team dynamics and the culture of a winning team, all in a way that was relevant to our senior corporate audience and which perfectly strengthened the core theme of our event: how to achieve gender balance and redefine leadership. It was an honour to have Kate join us and the audience loved it. I would fully recommend her as a speaker
I have asked Helen Richardson to speak on a number of occasions about her experiences as an elite athlete. Each time she has tailored her speech to suit the audience, which has included children, parents, volunteers & PE students. She has the ability to engage her listeners instantly; she is always interesting and has a very good sense of humour. She has also been truly inspiring- such a good positive role model for young people. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a speaker to any group in the future.
"Jade has been a great role model for young people and delivered inspirational talks to groups of young leaders and helped us a develop a new funding partnership with Tees Valley Community Foundation linked to our Future Champions programme. Jade is a fantastic sporting ambassador for Future Champions and her story and journey from grassroots sport to elite international competition is a constant inspiration to our young athletes in the Tees Valley."
“I just wanted to pass on my huge thanks to Kate for last night's event. She was wonderful. She is such an inspiring speaker and was an absolute delight to have as a guest. We have been inundated with compliments for her and it seems she really struck the right note with audience in everything she said about team ambition and leadership. Please let her know how grateful we are.”
"Thanks so much for your fantastic contribution to our day. Everyone was bowled over by your approach, your warmth and your humour. We all really appreciated that you had taken the time to link back to our industry, and that it wasn’t just a well tried and tested set of slides with a formulaic message .We all wish you every success for your future, and hope that you will continue to take risks, be brave, and inspire people"
“We all thoroughly enjoyed your talk and the feedback we have received has been excellent. We are still getting letters of thanks and praise so thank you so much for making the event such a success. We will certainly recommend you to others and hope to be able to book you again in the future. “
“ Carl's speed, timing, accuracy and punch variety is something I didn't have in my arsenal. The guy behind that is Shane McGuigan so he's the guy I sought out.”
"It is probably difficult for you to appreciate the impact of your visit. We have received a huge amount of positive feedback about the breakfast seminar and your speech in particular"
Kate was superb in every aspect. So gracious, kind with her time and so nice to everyone. Her talk was indeed inspirational and resonated with all that were lucky to hear it. There were many key take-aways and I am sure , upon reflection that there may be more! I loved seeing her emotion and passion that still fires Kate and I am sure that whatever she does, she will be a resounding success. Securis Investments, Team Away Day
