Inspirational Speakers - July 2023

The Summer is upon us!
This month Chelsea has been focusing on a new social media campaign for our speakers, which will include lots more video footage and insight. – watch this space!

Usually we see a dip over the summer, like with all events companies, however we haven’t seen this drop as of yet which is fantastic (maybe not for my husband and our ‘work free’ planned holiday however!)

It has been lovely speaking to new speakers as seen below and look forward to our clients getting to know the topics and stories they have to share.

My story of survival from 7/7 Bombings to Paralympic success

By turns heart-breaking and heart-warming, Unbroken is the remarkable true story of a woman who turned trauma and tragedy into hope. The autobiography of 7/7 bombings survivor and GB Paralympian, Martine Wright. 

On the morning of 7th July 2005, Martine Wright’s life changed forever. As she boarded an eastbound circle line train at Moorgate station, amid the busy rush-hour, she didn’t pay attention to her fellow passengers. At 8.49am, one of those passengers detonated a suicide bomb that would kill seven people in the carriage, part of a wider attack on London claiming 52 lives that became known as the 7/7 bombings.

Martine was, in fact, the last person to be brought out alive from the atrocities. She lost 80 per cent of her blood, was in a coma for seven days and underwent ten months of surgery. Not only did Martine survive her horrific injuries but, having never played sport seriously before, she took up sitting volleyball as part of her rehabilitation and went on to represent Great Britain at the Paralympics in London 2012. A deeply poignant moment that signified her triumph over tragedy, it  marked a journey Martine felt she was destined to make.

Since then Martine has become a national figure: a formidable, powerful, brilliantly funny, hugely engaging heroine who has come back – almost literally – from the dead. In 2012 she was awarded the Helen Rollason award at the Sports Personality of the Year and in 2015 the Independent voted her one of ’50 most powerful women in British Sport’. Beyond her phenomenal sporting achievements, Martine continues to change the lives of those around her as a charity fundraiser and inspirational speaker.

Inspirational speakers have been very helpful throughout the process of booking Action Jackson and then ensuring the talks met our expectations for the day. Emails were sent regularly to ensure we were supported or had any further questions. Action Jackson inspired our staff through his motivational journey and experiences. He also interacted with our tutors throughout the talk to keep them engaged.

Claire Rackham at Inspirational Speakers has been my Agent for a little over two years. From the first conversation we had, I felt that she was someone I could trust, and someone I would enjoy working with. She is a consummate professional, highly organised, and so much fun to talk to! She makes my life as a speaker and trainer easier, and I can see that this is reflected in the work she does with the clients booking me, as each booking runs smoothly from start to finish.
