Absolutely Astonishing

“Thanks ever so much for coming to our school and inspiring the kids today. Your inspirational speech was warmly listened to; in fact I’ve never heard them all so quiet and gave us food for thought. Absolutely astonishing. After seven years of pain and determination. A marvellous demonstration of human body to overcome adversity and achieve great things, when the heart and mind are willing and the attitude is so positive and vibrant. Truly life-affirming.

You enabled everyone to think about short and long term goals and make us feel anything is possible. They absolutely loved it and haven’t stopped talking about your journey and as a school we have talked about your motivational messages that you mentioned. Thank you very much for taking your personal time out and coming to our school.”

“I am writing to thank you wholeheartedly for agreeing to come along to Wales High School today to talk to our students.

Although I know you must have heard it many times before, your remarkable story is an inspiration, not only to our students but to everyone who has had the opportunity to meet you and to listen to the incredible journey you have been on.

Thank you once again for giving up your valuable time, it was an honour and a privilege

Very best wishes

Yours sincerely”

“Simply Steve, you made the evening with your inspirational responses to the questions I asked you. The audience were spellbound and the standing ovation was very justified. Showing your video at the end reminded the players of when they first saw it just before they went to Wembley to win and they have mentioned that listening to you talk has confirmed all of their initial beliefs in you. There was not a dry eye in the house and we all aspire to fulfil our lives and work towards our goals like you have done.
