Type Of Speaker


Colleagues’ wellbeing is at the forefront of Marsh’s agenda and to help us promote men’s mental health, we asked Ed to kick off the discussion about what mental health means to him and the ways in which he has overcome challenges when faced with highly stressful competitive environments. Being male and a sportsman bridged the gap nicely when it came to discussing mental health within a male-oriented industry. The corporate world of insurance is very different to that of an athlete; however, Ed’s thoughtful approach encompassed the importance of taking control of your mental health, regardless what industry you work in. Ed’s message was relatable, honest and very well-received across the business. Ed is a great role model not just for his athletic capabilities; he has an incredibly humbling presence that always promotes positive engagement.
Leah Kalinsky, Co-Chair Mental Health, Marsh UK & Ireland

Ed is a true professional and role model; approachable, down to earth, meticulous, knowledgeable yet always willing and wanting to learn more… That is why we were so keen to have him as our brand ambassador. For the past three years, he has continued to naturally align with the values of our organisation and has proven to be a huge hit with our clients, especially during the difficult times of the COVID lockdown. Without hesitation and despite facing the personal disappointment of the 2020 Olympics being delayed, he joined numerous clients’ Zoom Calls and attended live webinars and Instagram Lives to help motivate and inspire our clients through what is an extremely challenging time for everyone. Ed is the consummate professional and we look forward to continuing our flourishing relationship long into the future.
Phil Kelly, Director and Head of Human Performance, Pro-Noctis Ltd. 

Ed has valuable insights into performance and mindset for athletes of any level. We have had many helpful discussions about the effect of mindset on performance and the need to train both physically and mentally in order to be your best when it matters. He also highlighted the importance of physical and mental recuperation, something that can be easily overlooked. He has given great practical advice on how to actually achieve a change in mindset by working on it a little day by day. Having manageable goals and tasks that fit easily into the rest of my life made working on my mental game a source of satisfaction rather than a chore. You can sometimes get lost in what you “should” be doing – you can read so much conflicting advice and end up overloaded! Ed really helped me focus on what was important to me and the tweaks I could make to effect a positive change. I appreciate his guidance and respectful, conversation-based approach.
