CREATING LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES AND LONG LASTING MEMORIES IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE ARE SEEKING IN A SPEAKER.
I feel very lucky and honoured to be in the position that I am as a Motivational Speaker. My story has universal appeal. I am not just an “after dinner speaker” or a “Corporate speaker” or a niche speaker.
All my presentations are based around my life experiences and are tailored and modified to have maximum impact. No two presentations are ever the same.
To date I have travelled the world speaking to small classrooms, Primary School students / High School students and Universities including large High School Graduation Ceremonies. Small and Large Charity Fundraising Events. Small Business events including staff business meetings and business networking events. Large Multi National Business Events through to Conferences and private one on one meetings with Government Departments and Prime Ministers. What ever event or group you can think of it is highly likely I already have a letter of recommendation or letter of appreciate for sharing one of my presentations.
One sign that the audiences like what I am doing is by just how many repeat booking requests I receive from a number of schools, businesses and conferences. Some of whom have booked me every year for 6 or 7 consecutive years.
The goal has always been to have a meaningful impact on everyone who listens to my story no matter the age or position they are in.
Feel free to peruse my Reviews page for just a small example of some of the hundreds of letters of recommendations I have received over the years.
DEANS STORY IS MOVING, MEMORABLE, LONG LASTING & LIFE EMPOWERING. EVERYTHING YOU COULD HOPE FOR IN A SPEAKER.
In 2006, Dean and good friend Brad Thorn (Former Brisbane Bronco and New Zealand All Black) were talking about what Dean could do to build his physical strength and improve his overall health. What they uncovered was truly amazing. Even though Dean’s skin is incredibly fragile and delicate, internally Dean had the heart and mental strength of an elite athlete. Under the guidance of both Brad Thorn and Dan Baker (world renowned power training coach and good friend of Deans. Find Dan here www.danbakerstrength.com) the three of them began working out a program designed around protecting Dean’s skin yet also build his strength and power.
The results have been beyond anyones expectations. Under Brad and Dan’s guidance Dean has transformed his life from being incredibly weak and unwell to now being one of the strongest and healthiest people you will ever meet.
Today Dean trains 4 times per week and is regularly achieving a new bench pressing record.
In all my years as a professional athlete and coach I have never seen results like what Dean has achieved. Truly amazing and inspiring stuffBrad Thorn
