"Danny was brilliant and exactly what the conference required. His presentation touched on themes of goal setting, improvement and achievement which were extremely relevant for all the universities in attendance. The mix of humour and seriousness was spot on also. Can I also say how nice it was dealing with Danny, he was lovely and we really appreciate that he stayed around for a chat. Thanks again!"

“Danny Crates was one of the most inspirational guests at our recent Power to Perform week. His talk was incredibly inspiring and applicable to everybody, proving that no hurdle in life is impossible to overcome. His charm, humour and honesty were met with approval by a very engaged audience and I know that each person left having been motivated and touched by Danny’s unique story.”

Danny presented at three staff events, speaking to almost 500 employees in total, and each time the response from our guests was overwhelmingly positive.  Danny is very comfortable, genuine and engaging, both in front of an audience and when speaking individually to our guests.  His presentations were incredibly inspiring and motivating, and were delivered with a wonderful mix of sincerity, clarity and good humour. Prior to the events Danny made sure he understood our brief, he asked all the right questions, and his presentation reflected this. He was a pleasure to work with, and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work with him again.
