"We would recommend Gavin to speak at your conference after working with him to deliver the opening keynote at our annual conference. He offered a personalised service and worked hard to deliver his story and align it with the messages we wanted to deliver at our conference. Some feedback from delegates included 'Gavin Vickers was truly outstanding: staying focused at the top of the world' & 'Most enjoyable session was Gavin Vickers, puts living life into perspective.' Give the big show a call and make your conference a standout."
Peter, 2016 Renal Society of Australasia conference organising committee.

"Gavin was an extremely popular and inspirational speaker at our school. Through his incredible adventures climbing the highest mountains of the world he was able to deliver some important messages of persistence, determination and commitment. From humble beginnings he has achieved amazing things in his life, despite being often told he would not succeed. His story was a great source of motivation for our boys. We all enjoyed 'The Big show'!"
Nathan B, San Clemente High School
"Gavin instantly grabbed the attention of our students, his personal stories inspired and motivated all who attended. I highly recommend Gavin as a quality speaker with the ability to enthuse, entertain and most importantly connect with his audience. We will be getting him back."
David P, St Pius X High School.
"Gavin is an engaging speaker who connects with his audience as somebody that they can really relate to. His story is of somebody with an ordinary childhood who dared to dream big and has gone on to conquer achievements that most us will only ever imagine.
We can all learn something from Gavin because he is able to talk from firsthand perspective of what it takes to lead a successful team to overcome adversity and achieve their dreams. His presentation captivated our team and is something that staff still speak about. I can highly recommend Gavin as a speaker that will surprise, entertain and leave his audience with something very positive to take away from the experience"
