Absolutely fantastic motivational speech from Perry McCarthy aka ‘The Stig’ at the Keyloop GTM Conference in Malta. Great story told by Perry and extremely inspiring. Thank you, Perry!    – Keyloop (2023 Sales kick-off, Malta)

Perry was inspirational, he was also engaging and thoroughly entertaining ???? Bravo  – Meridian Business Support (2023 Conference, Birmingham)

So great to hear Perry’s story and understand all the things that could have stopped him. He was so focused and determined that he was successful despite the circumstances. Amazing!  – The Growth Hub Masterclass 2023

While it’s all still hot off the press I wanted to thank Perry for his tremendous contribution to our Awards Evening. His willingness to support with whatever we needed, his openness to being available to everyone around him and, of course, his delight in delivering a guest speaker session that engaged and over-ran due to questions, was every penny what we hoped his involvement would achieve.   – Briggs Equipment (2023 Awards evening, Liverpool)


Thanks for your flexibility last week, the team really enjoyed having you there. Dinner and the event were great and I will not forget meeting the ‘original STIG!’.   -Bayer (2023 Global brand meeting, Holland)
