“Jamie Peacock’s leadership qualities in sport go without question – what is just as impressive is his ability to translate his experience into powerful lessons for life and business and communicate those ideas in an engaging, authentic and compelling way. Jamie has led two sessions with the management team at Newcastle Building Society which have been received with a universally positive response and have helped us make a great start to the year.”
Andrew Haigh, C.E.O. Newcastle Building Society
‘I know nothing about rugby league but I thought he was great – very inspiring. Think I’m even going to write some goals down (proper ones, rather than corporate speak required by dialogue). Maybe we could employ him while he’s recovering – then every time someone’s flagging we could just send them for some “Jamie-time” and they’ll come back all fired up and raring to go.’
Jo Joyce, Corporate Tax, KPMG
‘Jamie’s talk was inspiring, he connected with everyone in the room. The feedback I received from the talk internally was the best we’ve had from a keynote motivational speaker.’
Mike Linter, Partner, KPMG
“Jamie Peacock is a truly exceptional guest speaker. He has such charisma and at the same time humility (despite his huge amount of honours) that he commands the attention of all in the room. His “No White Flag” mentality and examples are an inspiration to everyone – young and old, male and female, and in business as well as in personal life. Jamie also gave us some great leadership insights and tips that we can apply in our working environment tomorrow. The P&G lead team were talking about him hours after his presentation and what a superb speaker he was – I couldn’t recommend him enough”.
Helen Johnson, Associate Brand Director: Global Tesco PROCTOR & GAMBLE
“For our ASDA Marketing Away Day we invited Jamie Peacock to give a talk on motivation and encouraging team work. Retail and sport wouldn’t usually go hand in hand, but all of his content resonated with our colleagues. From the outset Jamie’s audience of 250 were fully engaged as he delivered his ‘No white flag’ presentation, inspiring us all to ‘aim high’ and go that ‘extra mile’. Seeing the journey, challenges and ‘hard truths’ Jamie shared is truly inspirational and showed us that having the right ‘attitude’ and determination will lead to success, be it in sport, retail or our personal lives”
Claire Armitage, ASDA Brand Design and Implementation Team
“From the moment he introduced himself to the closing second, Jamie Peacock delivered a charismatic journey that captured the imagination of every member in the room. Delivering Visions, Values and Leadership experience, an incredible character that holds an enviable quality to keep everyone in the room engaged 100%.”
Mark Cooke – Business Development Manager, SSAB EMEA
“I hired Jamie for an Expect Distribution management teambuilding event. Jamie captured the attention of the audience within the first few seconds, and the team stayed focused and interested throughout. Weeks later, my colleagues still talk about Jamie and how he had made a difference to the way that they think and act when dealing with challenging situations. I would definitely recommend Jamie as a motivational speaker, he was what we needed! An absolute inspiration!”
Gemma Bentley – Sales and Marketing Manager Expect Distribution
“Jamie presented at our Sales Conference. There were about 150 in the audience. His theme was “No White Flag”. The standard of presentations at our conference is always very high, but Jamie was the stand out performer that day. His message is very clear and digestible. At the conference dinner it was the main topic of conversation, with everyone saying how relevant they felt his message was to them. Personally, it has made me think about what going the extra mile really means and how important it is to fully focus on a task all the way until it is finished. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jamie to anyone who wants to lift their team to new levels of achievement.”
Peter Hill, CEO, Leeds Building Society
‘Jamie’s talk was really motivating and an inspiration to all of us – especially our team leaders – whether they were new to the role or had years of experience. It was really relevant to us as a team and we have taken away lots of examples we can apply not only to our day jobs but our personal lives too. Jamie delivered his presentation really well and was engaging throughout the session – and you don’t have to know anything about rugby league either! After the session everyone said how relevant the message was to them and how much they enjoyed it. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jamie to others who want to inspire, engage and motivate their teams’.
Sara Patterson, Head of Smart Installations & Metering Planning & Dispatch BRITISH GAS
“Jamie worked with year 3 degree students and staff at CU Scarborough. The content on Positive Mindsets and Wellbeing clearly resonated with our staff and students. The session was tailored to inspire students during their final stages of undergraduate study and the feedback has been phenomenal, exceptional delivery to finish what was an amazing event – thank you Jamie Peacock ”
Matt Butterworth – Head of Academic Studies CU SCARBOROUGH
“Jamie Peacock has once again excelled in inspiring and motivating a large team, this time at AO Business. This is the second time that I’ve brought Jamie into an organisation, and the impact his sessions have on colleagues is nothing short of phenomenal. Two days after the sessions have ended, I’ve been blown away by the colleague feedback, especially those that have little interest in sport of knew who Jamie was. Jamie offers businesses and their teams something very special; motivational ideas, inspirational challenges and honest truths from one of the greatest Rugby League players, and arguably sporting individuals this country has produced.
For any business considering using Jamie, I can honestly say it is probably the best investment decision in people you may make; not only did the sessions themselves inspire hundreds of our colleagues, but it has opened the doors to honest 121 conversations to allow everyone to become the best as an individual and as a team member. I’m already thinking of the next opportunity to bring Jamie in again. In the session Jamie quotes, ‘how would we ever know what a good day felt like if we never had a bad day?’ – well, I can honestly say the day that Jamie Peacock visited AO Business, it was a very good day indeed!”
Steven Moore – Senior Commercial Manager AO.
