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."

"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

"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."

Dave shared his incredible journey which unlocked so many emotions for us all.

We talked about how to adopt a positive mindset, leadership and the importance of looking after both our physical and mental health. Dave touched on how you can be successful whilst maintaining a balance. 

The messages and learnings Dave left me with, will stick with me for a lifetime. Thank you Dave Bolton, keep telling your incredible story and inspiring others. ❤️
