Jamie Barnett, Director, Mortgage Bureau, part of the Countrywide Group
The Directors of Mortgage Bureau were delighted to have Steve as our Keynote speaker at our Annual Conference in February 2018. Our event had the theme of ‘Challenge and Opportunity’ and Steve fitted with this perfectly. An incredible man and a truly inspirational character, we had lots of great feedback from our wide range of delegates. Nothing was too much trouble for Steve, and it was really good of him to engage with our staff and guests, before and after his presentation. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Steve Robinson for your upcoming Sales conference, whatever your industry.
We asked Steven to speak at the Living+ ‘Making It Count’ Staff Conference because his journey and life experiences seemed to link so well with the objective of our day – to make it count! We specialise in providing innovative solutions to improve the health, wellbeing and long term prospects of our customers – with social purpose at the heart of what we do, so the link with Steven was immediately there and very obvious right from the beginning. Steven had the audience captivated, amused and inspired in equal measure. We would highly recommend Steven to others looking for a truly awe inspiring motivational speaker who is living proof that anything really is possible!
Suhail Aslam, Teesside University, UK
Just a quick note to say how I really enjoyed your talk at yesterday’s Brand Yorkshire event. I recited this back to my three children yesterday, aged 15, 13 and 11, and told them how you took a negative situation and turned it into a positive. I wanted to emphasise the message that anyone can achieve anything they want if they are prepared to work hard and aim high, we need more inspirational people like you. Carry on reaching for new heights and best wishes on the next challenge you set yourself.
I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for your superb talk this afternoon. It’s not very often someone gets a spontaneous, total-audience standing ovation. You deserved it; it was a masterclass in delivering a powerful message with a compelling story. You taught me a lot this afternoon, for which I am enormously grateful. I look forward enormously to hearing you again.

I’m a member of staff at the College you came in to visit today, I was lucky enough to be in on the first session with the students. Wow… I just wanted to say that I think you are a truly amazing man, your background and life story is just amazing. You really are a true inspiration to many, I left the hall today believing that anything is possible especially as I’m studying at the moment to progress higher with my career, it just goes to show determination and dedication really does pay off! Truly the best inspirational speaker I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to.
