Type Of Speaker


Absolutely lovely and engaging, good listener. Very patient with the amount of people wanting to talk to him and take selfies.

South Glos Expo

Eddie is an absolute legend – a great story teller and an inspiration to all people on how to succeed against all the odds. He really went the extra mile to entertain our guests and was very easy to talk too. I would recommend Eddie for any event, epic!

De Vere Venues

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Eddie! What an absolutely lovely guy. He was brilliant with everyone and really made the day very special. I hope he enjoyed it as much as everyone else did here. We would love to have him back as all the kids, parents and organisers want to run the event next year and of course bigger !!”

Sandown Ski Centre

“He was extremely friendly and interesting to talk too and we had a good chat in the Green Room whilst he was waiting to go on. What a lovely man! After delegates spend the day being ‘talked at’, where possible we always like to end our conference by having someone with an inspirational, heart-warming and interesting tale to tell mixed with just the right amount of humour to finish up, and Eddie did just that. He seemed to be a popular choice and some wanted to have their photo taken with him and talk to him afterwards, and he was most happy to stay and chat.”
