Gareth was very well received, thank you. He had a really inspirational story and we had a mix of people in the room which meant that we had a wide range of questions in Q&A and Gareth was very happy to answer everything. Unfortunately I had to leave immediately after the talk but I believe that Gareth stayed on and spoke with a lot of our employees. He had a good mix of topics and themes from Rugby, motivation and LGBT etc.
I have always been a Gareth Thomas fan for his numerous accomplishments on the Rugby pitch. I recently had the opportunity to meet Gareth and, hear him share his story with hundreds of BNY Mellon employees. Gareth spoke with incredible emotion, candor and caring - his story was a lesson for us all. I can honestly say I admire him even more for what he has done, and is doing, off the pitch!!
Gareth could not have been any better. Great mix of rugby stories and his experience of coming out.The audience were very moved by his story, I would say he was the most impactful speaker we have had.

Words cannot describe the immensely impactful moment Gareth created in that room yesterday. I have been inundated with positive feedback on his presentation both on the day, last night and this morning, for a very formal & serious company – that is saying something!!!! I have also received many photos and positive comments on our internal version of twitter, which reaches out to all of our employees across the globe. Gareth was so open about his story that it broke down inhibitions in the audience and set up some really open and deep discussions as a result. The buzz and atmosphere in the break, when he had finished was very telling to me that the audience were able to start opening up about how it had made them feel. We would love to work with Gareth again... please send him a huge virtual hug from the RR Engineering leadership team at Rolls-Royce. He has made a real difference in the way we think about the world we live in.
Delivered more than we could have wished for! Masterful, engaging and intimate. His vulnerability and eloquence was captivating - he directly addressed issues around LGBTQ+ inclusion, engaging and informing allies, and inspiring our LGBTQ+ colleagues to be out and proud. There were tears, laughter, curiosity, and loads of questions which he handled superbly.
