'Thank you so much for your thought provoking workshop. The children and I loved listening to you and seeing how saltwater can help overcome the toughest of challenges! They enjoyed designing their positive pebbles and have already said that they’d like to make more as a stall for the summer fete or for children who go to our learning and pastoral support group to help them think positively.' Vicky, Teacher

'I think that our students are quite sheltered and I think this experience has really opened their eyes.' Amy, Teacher

'Rich was out of this World. His presentation was excellent! 'Heidi,Teacher

'They liked listening to Richard and the way he spoke to them as equals.  Observation suggests they particularly enjoyed him rotating his prosthetic leg 360 degrees!' Teacher, Hampshire Secondary School

'Inspirational Speakers have to have a unique story to tell and Richard truly has one which will inspire many people in the future.  I would strongly recommend him to any organisation whether educational or from the business world'. Andrew, Headmaster

'The workshop was part of a disability awareness project. It definitely met our requirements'. Mrs Craig, Teacher

'After the session the participants were spellbound and praised his ability to inspire them to overcome challenges in their own lives.  His passionate delivery was blended with experiential activities to enable participants to fully appreciate the difficulties of living with a disability. Richard is an excellent motivational speaker and an expert in disability issues.' Mrs Spears, Workshop recipient

'We so enjoyed our day with you - I think the pupils got a great deal out of it and the bridges are proudly sitting in the form room!' Mrs Vernon, Teacher, Pennthorpe School, Horsham

'Richard's visit was extremely inspiring and supported the values we are trying to get across to the children every day.  His visit really helped to launch our 'Real-Life Heroes' week.  The year 5 and 6 teachers reported that the children really enjoyed the workshops and have created displays with the work.' Mrs Pfeiffer, St Peter's Catholic Primary School, Hampshire

The session was perfectly pitched to meet our needs and I would happily book again. Many Thanks.' Joe, Teacher

'They felt it was a real life experience and enjoyed being able to talk to someone who wasn’t a member of staff. They really engaged with the Richard as it was his story.' Perins School, Hampshire 

'They say you can’t make a silk purse out of sow’s ear, but I think Jules actually can, literally, situationally and emotionally. If I feel I’ve got a “can’t” going on in my life, after chatting with Jules, it’s pretty much always been turned into a “can”. She truly is inspirational'. Johanna, Nutritionist
