I first heard Damian speak at a conference several years ago and was really impressed by both the content of his presentation and his personal style. When I was asked to source a speaker for our staff conference I immediately thought that Damian would be perfect. My brief to Damian was to speak to an audience of colleagues ranging from Insurance Consultants working in our call centres to the Managing Director. The objective was for the audience to come away with a sense of personal responsibility and accountability and feeling inspired to go back to the office and make a difference. Damian definitely achieved this objective – he both entertained and challenged the audience and even managed to weave in the themes of our conference to ensure that it was relevant to our business goals. I would not hesitate to recommend Damian.

I very much enjoyed Damian’s presentation. It was clear to me that he is passionate about his work and is genuinely interested in how he can influence others to understand and change their behaviours for the better. Damian is a down to earth individual, who is easy to relate to.
We are going through significant changes in our business and Damian has challenged me to change my thought process and allow my mind to be open to new ideas and ways of thinking.

What I enjoyed most about Damian’s talk was that he gave honest, down-to-earth examples of the theory in practice. This meant that everyone could relate to and understand the points he was making in a context outside of work, before it was flipped round and reflected their working life – this for me really hammered home the points. He was very engaging and charismatic, I was really hanging off every word. The simple activities and analogies meant that everyone was engaged and probably took more from it about work and their career than they realised. The way that the activities and analogies evidenced the theories and the points he was making, made the audience trust him. I think that this, combined with his obvious success from working with high-profile clients, make him an inspiring speaker who is relevant in all aspects of life, but particularly for our business. It was refreshing to think about business success in the insurance industry in a context outside of the corporate world.
