What people are saying
Dee delivers sessions and hosts events for housing associations, oil and gas companies, financial businesses, sports corporations not to mention having spoken at a TEDx event.
With an unparalleled level of energy and enthusiasm for what I do, I may not have too many grey hairs but my experience speaks for itself. I've worked extensively up and down the UK and abroad, delivering over 1000 sessions to businesses and schools alike, racking up a staggering 3000+ hours of on stage speaking time.
My brand of speaking has also given me fantastic opportunities to present internationally including California where I've spoken in venues in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. As well as speaking at events for F.C. Barcelona.
Before my time as a professional speaker I was a secondary school geography teacher. You'll find no better practice for standing up speaking and also the requirement of flexibility and thinking on your feet than working with teens on a daily basis.

"The conference was seamless with thanks to your work and hosting. You’re a pleasure to work with and we’re so glad we have you #MakingItHappen for us!"
If we didn’t work with inspiring people like yourself we wouldn’t be able to run such a motivational event.

"Dee is a ball of energy, motivation, inspiration all wrapped up in one. He is extremely good at what he does and it translates through his interaction with his audience. In an auditorium full of people and I felt as if he was talking to me! I left with a sense of direction after Dee delivered his talk! It takes a big heart to motivate young people and he does it with such conviction and authenticity. Truly a real life inspiration and role model!"
-Shannon Grant, Masters Student, University of Aberdeen
"I would highly recommend Dee as a thought provoking speaker who inspires you to not only set lifelong goals but actually get on and execute and complete. He gave a very entertaining talk during our business strategy launch which was broken up with different team challenges and games. I would recommend Dee every time if you are looking for a motivational guy, that is down to earth and lives the real life!"
-Laurie Lewis, Area Sales Manager, Lion Safety
"As host and speaker at the LEVEL-UP! Conference, Dee contributed tremendously to making the event a success and enjoyable for everyone involved. His enthusiasm, drive and content kept our delegates engaged and motivated over both days of the event and knowing that we had someone as spontaneous and charismatic on our team was a great relief for us organisors. I could not imagine anyone more pleasant to work with!"
