More inspirational speaking

While I agree the name "inspirational speaker" can make one sound a bit conceited, I sincerely hope it's not the way I'm coming across. I've recently spoken to 60 odd Cambridge University Enterprisers delegates, which is a combination of graduates from different universities who haven't made what they hoped to out of their post-university lives. My job was to inspire them and inspire them I seemed to do. I'll post some testimonials soon to back this up but what made it for me was the queue of people who hung about after my talk to tell me how they had been affected by my experiences.

This is the best possible feedback I can ever receive. It's humbling as much as it is fulfilling to know that what I did can affect people in ways I never really imagined possible.

On October 31st I'll be speaking at the Macmillan Halloween Ball then on November 5th I'm speaking at the Entrepreneurs' Forum annual SME conference at the Hilton Hotel in Gateshead. Let me know if you'd like to be there. All money raised will go straight to Macmillan.

I'll also be posting some samples of my speaking work to the site shortly once I work out how to compress and edit the footage. So stay posted!
