Extraordinary... If you’ve met Sam it’s a unique experience
Kevin Rudd Prime Minister of Australia
Sam has a unique ability to be entertaining, professional and informative – all in the same presentation. I observed a dynamic, motivating and effective speaker who was able to capture the audience within the first minute of his presentation. Sam connected with the audience at an emotional level and made a lasting impression
HR Manager - Fairfax Media
With out a doubt the BEST speaker we have ever heard and one of the most inspirational hours of our lives.
Pymble Ladies College
Outstanding. Sam's message was so powerful. He was well researched and really cared about giving value that was relevant to us. He was most certainly the best speaker we have had.
Finance Manager - Johnston & Johnston
Sam’s honest yet entertaining approach has inspired our workforce. He has encouraged them to really think about how their reaction to a situation, not the situation itself, will truly define them and their ability to lead happy and fruitful lives. Sam has given us much to think about, reflect on, and to celebrate what matters: life
General Manager - National Foods
Your speech was thoroughly inspiring and crafted with just the right amount of humour, drama and showmanship. Once again, thanks for your magnificent effort in closing the Convention (NSAA)
President International Federation for Professional Speakers
Sam’s presentation is one that inspires and motivates all in a story of great courage and determination, his enthusiastic style and love of life is second to none.
CEO - Beacon Foundation
Thank you for your presentation at our annual client seminars across Australia. Your story should be one that inspires everyone and was it delivered with wonderful enthusiasm, humour and humility. Our clients appreciated having an opportunity to hear from a "non-financial" speaker who can offer a different perspective on life and what is important.
Chief Executive Officer - Shadforths Limited
Great presentation and some really good takeaways. You demonstrated that you had done your research and had us all in the palm of your hand. You were very funny, relatable and gave us some insightful lessons. I'm glad you closed the convention, I could not have thought of a better choice. Thank you.
MDRT - Million Dollar Round Table
Brilliant. You were the highlight speaker for many people at the event. The way you tell stories and how you can keep us all at the edge of our seats was extraordinary. Thank you for your magnificent effort. You were one of the best we have ever had.

You are the most extraordinary person that I've ever met. Your courage and will to overcome adversity is commendable. I truly feel privileged to have witnessed such an amazing talent. You are changing the world one person at a time. You've changed us.
Inspiring and entertaining the room was transfixed by Sam's message of optimism in both business and in life.
CEO – Citibank
Sam is a very engaging speaker and his message of “bouncing forward” resonated with our team. He’s a living example of how important it is to stay positive, to be resilient and to keep pushing forward no matter what challenges come.
I have been coming along to these type of conferences for over 15 years, this session is by far the BEST session that I have ever attended.
We engaged Sam Cawthorn to address our National Sales Team... Not only was Sam's story inspirational he directly related it to the challenges our team face daily. I highly recommend Sam to any organisation seeking to motivate their staff.
Among some of the most high profile speakers in the world, Sam was the highest ranked speaker in the history of our annual conference.
Sam has that rare ability to really inspire change through his own personal journey and the powerful way he tells his story. Today, 1 week after meeting Sam, I had 6 people tell me how they were Bouncing Forwards!
Sam was a really engaging and enthusiastic presenter. He quickly built rapport with the crowd, even bringing some to tears. His style of storytelling and strategies to 'bounce forward' resonated deeply with everyone in the audience and a week and a half later, people are still talking about Sam.
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
Engaging, inspirational and challenging. An excellent and high energy presentation.
Warren Roberts, CEO, City of Stonnington
