Hi JeremyI just wanted to give you some feedback on Dr Ed Coats talk at our meeting on Friday the 19th November.We found him to be the most pleasant person, lovely as a matter of fact.He was professional and polite and gave the most amazing talk about his adventures which captured the hearts of everyone in our team. We were all nearly reduced to tears with the emotion of what he went through!He was interesting and soooooooo inspirational. What an amazing person. I'm so pleased that you recommended him as we couldn't have wished for better person!Thank you so much!
Captivating, motivational, inspirational, funny and accessible. We very much hope that Ed will join us again at one of our Awards Evenings. His after dinner speech was perfectly pitched for our apprentices. Thank you

Ed more than met our expectations with a captivating, energetic and moving presentation. He “painted” a picture and took the whole room along his journey.

Ed's time with us was so appreciated. Ed has great ability as a highly professional, motivating and engaging public speaker. What we also found so inspiring was that whilst talking about his achievements which, lets face it, are extraordinary, he managed to present himself in an ordinary "average bloke down the pub" kind of way. Ed was also very generous with his time. He arrived over an hour early to prepare and gave the impression that he had all the time in the world and was in no rush to leave, which I'm sure wasn't the case after a nightshift the night before!
The day went really well and Ed was excellent!! Everyone at the event found Ed to be engaging and were very impressed. His story was relevant to all and this came across in the audience participation. I would highly recommend Ed to anyone looking for a motivational speaker. --------------------------Plus a note to Ed:Dear Ed I know this is belated but thank you very much for you inspirational talk last week at our Commercial Day, I have had a lot of positive feedback from the team who thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Everyone went away feeling very positive which was exactly the point of the day.
Ed pitched his discussion perfectly. Our audience were engrossed and able to consider Ed’s comments and story in their own work context.

The feedback to date has been fantastic. He was inspirational, interesting and really related to the audience.
Enraptured! He came, he entertained, he conquered.
Comments were overwhelmingly positive with words such as “awesome”, “honest” and “inspiring” cropping up repeatedly.
Ed was fantastic. There was a real buzz in the room afterwards and his session fitted perfectly into the day.

Ed's performance was more than excellent linking the passion, adventure and freedom into the context of the event. Everyone enjoyed it thoroughly with remarkable feedback and his story of emotional endeavour was a super way to end the Jeep 75th Anniversary Event de-stressing all of us. Laughter is still the best medicine. Ed even received a hearty Thank You and a handshake from top management as an expression of the enjoyable time they had. We will definitely consider Ed for future events, and I will highly recommend him to other organisations and event management companies.”
His talk was really interesting, entertaining and inspirational, with some really useful messages taken from his experiences as an explorer and adventurer. Ed is also a really impressive and genuinely lovely guy, very understated and down to earth despite his impressive list of achievements in the world of medicine and adventure. We would thoroughly recommend him to other groups, large or small.
Without exception the audience response was overwhelmingly positive. Humour when appropriate, serious when needed and clear on message. Spot on.

Inspirational, amusing and heartfelt. The South Pole experience he shared is one that will stay with all of us for a very long time. The lessons learnt along the way, and the way he portrayed them was nothing short of brilliant, leaving us all with plenty of food for thought and smiles. All 60 guests were captivated throughout with the Q&A showing just how engaged they were! The warmth and open approach he showed from the moment he arrived to leaving was extremely humbling. His words; “Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them makes like meaningful’ – could not have been more accurate – he certainly proved that.
