  • “Steve Backley bought our campaign to life, inspiring the press and public alike. He demonstrated commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism throughout the campaign and was a pleasure to work with!"
    South Eastern Trains
  • "Steve recently attended, and spoke, at our National Dealer conference in Oman. The conference was in effect a two day meeting, with Steve's session closing out the formalities of the business trip at the end of day two, a notoriously a tough end of event slot. It would be fair to say that Steve re-energised our audience of 200 Dealer partners, offering an insightful view into his 15 years as a professional athlete. Steve's delivery of his presentation made it easy to transfer some of the challenges he faced in his professional career into our own business challenge, and the one key principal that I took away was his importance of understanding your plan. I have received much Dealer feedback from our conference and Steve's session was a highlight for many. A truly great athlete, motivational speaker and a thoroughly nice guy! "

  • "Steve delivered a fantastic after dinner speech which was perfectly tailored to the audience of local clubs, coaches, volunteers and schools. He was more than willing to pose for photographs and discuss any questions with the audience afterwards. A really enjoyable speech by a thoroughly nice guy!"
    Lucy Gallagher - Marketing and Research Officer County Durham Sport
  • “The event went very well and Steve was fantastic. Multiple compliments from our guests and staff alike. Steve also handled our young Local Heroes, Laura and Ira, fantastically. All in all, as I think you’ll have gathered, we were pretty pleased with the morning!"
    Lloyds TSB
  • “Steve, thank you for your fantastic presentation at our conference. The messages were extremely relevant and appropriate for our audience. The feedback that I have received has been excellent and I am very grateful for the amount of time that you spent in both preparation and meeting our employees after the event. I don’t think that I could have found a more appropriate and engaging presenter."
