TESTIMONIALS

"I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM AS A MOTIVATIONAL
SPEAKER FOR ANY EVENT"


Aaron is an accomplished speaker and I would recommend him as a motivational speaker for any event. He is very humble, entertaining and generated a good combination of laughs and empathy from our delegates on the day.

"I DON’T THINK YOU CAN CONVEY IN WORDS
WHAT AARON'S TALK ACHIEVED"


Aaron's experiences and achievements are quite simply phenomenal and hearing him speak about his Kilimanjaro climb is something I will never forget. When the video of Aaron reaching the summit played you could hear a pin drop, seeing how emotionally and physically drained he was but also how elated he was will stay with me. It made me want to achieve more and push myself in all aspects of my life and build up my own sense of resilience and determination. His love for his family shone through throughout his talk which made the whole thing so much more relatable for people and really resonated with me. Everything we do in life should be with our family and friends in our hearts and mind and Aaron reminded us all of that in such an effortless way.

 

I don’t think you can convey in words what Aarons talk achieved, it’s a sense of feeling, warmth and awe that is left with you and that is what I want to take forward in my life and instil in my team, my company and my family.

"I WAS HOOKED ON YOUR EVERY WORD"


Your keynote speech had an incredible impact on our colleagues and their outlook. We wanted to highlight why ‘inclusive design’ is the future for everyone, and your story brought this to life. I was hooked on your every word. The way you connected with your audience, and told your story was so impactful and engaging. The determination and resilience you showed through your journey is something we can all learn from and truly does challenge the ‘dis’ in ‘disabled’. 

 

The talk was brilliant and a true emotion rollercoaster. You had me laughing, crying and everything in between during your speech. It was very engaging and we all took so much away from it.

"THE TEAM HAVE BEEN RAVING ABOUT YOU!"


I wanted to write to you to say thank you so much for coming to speak at the PwC Southampton AGM in September. The feedback from the day was that is was the best AGM we have ever had – and you played a huge role in this. You were candid, authentic and your style was warm and funny. You were truly inspirational! The team have been raving about you! Thank you so much!

"KEPT A DIVERSE AUDIENCE OF TELCO EXECS HANGING ON HIS EVERY WORD"


It’s a rare and exciting thing to meet a person who can make you rethink your approach to life but Aaron did just that. He kept a diverse audience of Telco Execs hanging on his every word with his balance of brutal honesty, humour and authenticity. Aaron’s unique story is interesting in its own right but add in his skills of audience engagement and you’ve got an incredible motivational speaker and presenter. Can not recommend highly enough!

"ONE OF OUR BEST SPEAKERS AT THIS ANNUAL EVENT"


An audience of 550 did not un-nerve Aaron as he told his life story with a few action shots of the wheelchair rugby (repeated) to add to the excitement! This is a heartfelt story of targets and achievements with plenty of opportunity for Aaron to poke fun at himself along the way. Aaron was happy to mingle with the guests at the afters bar which was a welcome bonus, but alas no drinking for Aaron as heading off to the England training camp. Certainly one of our best speakers at this annual event!

"RATHER EXCEPTIONAL"


Something rather exceptional has occurred when people are still talking about Aaron Phipps a month after meeting him, including me! It was a pleasure to meet Aaron and there are few occasions when it is possible to be so informed and entertained in such a thought provoking way as this one did. Aaron’s talk was moving, inspiring and humorous and we’d like to send another huge thank you for making it such a memorable event for everyone who came.

"YOU WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE ENTIRE EVENT!"


You stole the show! For me and many others you were the highlight of the entire event! I wanted to e-mail to thank you for your significant contribution to our Conference this year. You had me and the rest of the audience captivated from start to finish and everyone left on such a high. The wheelchair racing seemed to go down well too. Thank you so much for bringing our Conference to life.

"I HAVE NO IDEA HOW WE CAN TOP AARON AS OUR KEY NOTE SPEAKER, FOR NEXT YEAR’S EVENT"


Aaron was the icing on the cake at the event, he was a true inspiration to the team. He gave everyone a greater understanding of the importance of team work in supporting people to reach their full potential.

 

Aaron was engaging, bringing a great sense of humour to the proceedings with an open and honest approach which put everyone at ease. The team hasn’t stopped talking about Aaron’s presentation, what a great guy Aaron is and how he brought a whole new aspect to the celebration event.

 

I have no idea how we can top Aaron as our Key note speaker, for next year’s event, he is truly inspirational.

"GREAT STORY, BRILLIANTLY TOLD"

After seeing Aaron’s presentation for the first time, I commissioned him to deliver it to our senior managers. It’s a great story, brilliantly told, which really raised the bar in inspiring and resonating with my department colleagues. Aaron’s story effortlessly tackled big transformational themes such as resilience, motivation, performance, seeking opportunities through change, teamwork, and work-life balance, in a way that standard tired PowerPoint presentations could never do.
