Derek Redmond provided some valuable insights into team building/leadership by expressing them in a sporting context. His delivery was professional, funny, honest and extremely engaging. Furthermore, whilst off the stage as well as on, he was very personable and endeared himself to everyone in the team.
Our audience was captivated by your energy and enthusiasm. Thanks for the inspiration.
The closing keynote session was the liveliest and most emotional of the congress. Derek Redmond, world 4x400m relay gold medallist, took to the stage with a vigour that few could have mustered at 10 o'clock on a Saturday morning. He led an enthralled audience through the story behind winning his gold medal and used the experience to emphasise that its teamwork that matters when it comes to achieving your goals. Many in the audience were moved to tears watching the footage from the Barcelona Olympics, then Derek skilfully lifted the mood again leaving people with a distinctive message using a Rubix cube.
There have been nothing but compliments on how well the event was run. Mr Redmond went down extremely well and participated in the event himself - just that extra bit of motivation for the teams!
The audience were fixated and in awe of Derek Redmond's achievements-they all wanted to shake his hand, many saying he was the best speaker they had ever heard - he really capped off our day on a high.
Derek Redmond's presentation was perfectly balanced and professionally delivered, with exactly the right amount of humour. It was packed with all the elements we wanted to make this event a huge success for our team of over 400, and everyone left on a tremendous 'high'. He was inspirational, motivational and relevant, especially as his own experiences can be so closely aligned with those we experience in business. A consummate professional and a delight to work with.
