"Dave Bolton is one of the most inspiring individuals I have come across, Dave’s resilience and positive attitude...and approach in the face of (massive) adversity borders on superhuman. Dave delivered his story to our Under Armour team and left a huge impression, I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any business wanting to inspire and motivate their team mates."
Anthony O'Neil - Senior Director Sales, European Strategic Accounts
"Listening to Dave speak had numerous of my male managers holding back the tears and calling their wives to tell them that they love them. The last speaker we had was rugby Legend Lawrence Dalalio. Dave was with out doubt ten times better as his talk. It was personal, powerful and real"
Steven Culshaw - Senior Managing Director at BT Openreach
"Where to start... If there is someone that is able to take your breath away and at the same time inspires you to get up and fight harder than ever before, that person is David Bolton! I can guarantee you that after being on his presence and hearing his moving story, you are never going to be the same. Get ready to be touched & moved! If you are looking for the right motivational speaker, the one that will not just make your customers/clients/guests speak about it for a long time, but truly cherish the opportunity of having attended your keynote speaking event, I couldn't recommend David highly enough! He has changed my perspective of resilience, made me see life with different eyes and inspired me to never give up! Thank you so much David!"

"Dave’s story is incredible, and funny enough, he was demonstrating a bit of that remarkable well of resilience he has with all our technical issues getting started. This wasn’t another motivational speaker saying “you can do it, don’t give up.” You can get that at any corporate or self-help seminar and most inspirational movies. This session mattered to me and will stay with me for quite some time. I’m still thinking about it days later. Thank you So Much."
