“Jamie has an inspiring story to tell, using his stories to motivate others with his incredible adventures” – Sir Steve Redgrave, Rower, 5 time Olympic Gold Medalist

“Having booked countless speakers before, and feeling the pressure of running the biggest business award show of 2015 held in the UK, booking Jamie is without doubt the best decision I’ve ever made. His passionate delivery of an innovative talk had over 800 esteemed guests hanging off his every word. Through a technically flawless and authentic presentation, he inspired the audience repeatedly – moving them from raucous laughter, to tears. The best thing about Jamie is that he doesn’t realise just how good he is. Never before have I had the pleasure of dealing with a speaker who is so talented, and yet so down to earth. I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again” – Gloucestershire Business Awards

“Seeing Jamie speak was like watching an episode of Only Fools and Horses. Complete comedy and every once in a while you get socked with a heartwarming moment” – Liverpool Victoria

“Fast-moving, inspiring and funny. You left us wanting more” – NHS

“We flew Jamie around Great Britain to visit all of our offices’, he has a hugely entertaining story and is one of great personal endeavour; his tenacity in achieving his goals and in overcoming barriers is inspirational. Jamie’s engaging presentation style, his experiences and the challenges he faces, resonate well with his audience from a both a personal and business perspective” – Capita

“Inspirational. Can’t wait to have you back” – Unite Students

“We googled ‘Superhero’ and that’s exactly what we found. We’d like to adopt him a few weeks each year and bring him back to Canada” – Ontario’s Coaches Association

“Best speaker we’ve seen in 25 years. A real and refreshing change from what you would normally expect in the corporate affair” – Sunlife

“At an event attended by over 500 staff, Jamie’s brief was to; have some fun, and show the audience what is possible, when you never give up – well he certainly achieved all of that and more. Jamie provoked laughter, tears, shock, more laughter and transmitted a whole chunk of pride and self-esteem to the audience, with his inspirational and uplifting story telling. 5 months later staff are still talking about it! Jamie’s talk fosters a lasting connection, on never giving up, always moving forward and finding the superhero within. Will definitely be having him back” – NTT Europe HQ

“Jamie’s motivational and very funny talk gave the perfect start to our staff conference. Endless echoing feedback like: extremely touching, makes you remember why you do your job” — Home Group

“WARNING! Box of tissues required if you’re going to hear this young man talk” – Community Integrated Care

“Jamie is the perfect example of a real-life superhero” — Phil Vickery MBE, Rugby Player, Captained England

“We know of Terry Fox, my brother, to have determination, commitment, dedication, living mind over matter and you’ve shown all of these characteristics and especially shown these students today, that anything is possible. Incredible presentation, thank you” – Fred Fox, at Terry Fox’s School

“Fundraising is easy with superhero mentality . We’d love you back” – NSPCC

“After listening to your talk something happened in my heart that hasn’t happened since the passing of my 8 year old son almost 9 years ago. I went to the cabinet where I keep the things that remind me of my son. There I found a beaded alligator which my son made whilst in hospital. At the time he gave it to me and said “here mommy, this one is for you, so you will never be alone.” The second is a medal the hospital gave him for being a hero. After hearing you speak, I now want you to have both of these things. The alligator because I don’t want you to ever feel like you’re alone on your adventures, and the gold medal because you are my hero”  – Cindy Hopkins, Canadian Mum

“I nearly fell off my chair, hilarious and inspiring” – Alexander Armstrong, BBC presenter & comedian

“We get so wrapped up in our day to day ‘inconveniences’ that we lose track of what it is really like to struggle, then succeed and the long lasting rewards this brings. We’d have you back in a flash” – Investors Group

“Are you an adventurer, or a comedian? Phenomenal” – Sir Geoff Hurst, former England footballer 

“You made everyone feel like their small actions make a big difference. Thank you for making our conference so special” — Dogs Trust

“Incredible and inspiring. The response from everyone has been amazing” – Youth Sport Trust

I can honestly say that we have never received so much immediate positive feedback for a speaker before! You have a genuine gift of authentically engaging with your audience – a rare talent. I’d highly recommend you to others, whether looking for a motivational speaker or for a way to add value to a leadership programme” – CIPD

“I watched Jamie inspire, entertain and motivate thousands of people” – Mike Tindall, Rugby Player, Captained England
