Testimonials

Trevor Hendy was a guest speaker at my monthly Business Excellence Breakfasts held in Tweed and Gold Coast several months ago. The presenters are the best in Australia and many are of international status. The impact Trevor made on the large audience of 100 leading business people was incredibly powerful. He is the most outstanding World and Australian ironman of his time, but he was able to explain to the group a system to be successful in business and overcome obstacles that they could relate to instantly. He held their attention from his opening words with his inspirational stories that made a real connection with the audience. No other speaker over the years has made this brilliant an impact to this mix of businessman. He has a speaking style that relates well to any group and makes a real connection with his audience. Trevor is a real champion who has the gift of being able to transfer his methodology of success to an audience that will leave with the motivation to strive for success and overcome any hurdles.

I had the pleasure of hearing Trevor Hendy speak to an audience of mostly women, about his mission in life now to empower people to learn from their mistakes and walk through their difficulties to discover who they really are.  This was Australia’s legend of sport; the greatest Ironman in the world; the pride of Australian Surf Lifesaving – standing before us showing a soft side, an endearing vulnerability that won our hearts as he revealed that despite all the fame and glory in his life, it didn’t make him happy. Let me tell you, Trevor won many hearts at this seminar.  He exudes love and passion for what he’s doing – empowering people to maximize their human potential.  Whilst his story covers love and values, it started with awareness:  that his life was no longer fulfilling; something was missing – and he tuned in, truly inspirational

We engaged Trevor to run a motivational session for us in the early stages of some training for our retention team.  Trevor truly delivered to brief and then some. He was energetic, enthusiastic, focused and present. He engaged with the entire audience and made the content relevant and meaningful. The participants were all overwhelmed with his honestly, humbleness, great sense of humor and motivating stories.  Indeed I found myself questioning my own practices and checking in with my own guiding principles as a result.  His topic was relevant and Trevor was really able to make the content relevant to the audience – tapping into the brief he was given, but also adding commentary that made it his own. We all engaged with Trevor and were enthralled with his ability to make us want to do and be better. Trevor was generous with his time, gave the team the upmost respect by preparing and meeting them in their world. I enjoyed every minute of the session and found myself wanting to listen for longer.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Trevor to other organizations looking for a versatile speaker who is able to adjust his life experiences and content to meet the needs of his clients.

I choose to be me ….so can You. I have the pleasure of managing a team of sales professionals from diverse backgrounds and geographies.  Our team members consist of both male & female, from the CBD of cities, to little country towns and from all different walks of life. Annually I bring the team together to provide business updates, essential training and networking opportunities.  In 2011 my aim was to introduce a culture of Self Belief and Self-Motivation.  With this mantra in mind I was provided the opportunity to invite Trevor Hendy to present to my team. Trevor’s presentation was engaging, motivational and entertaining. The team found it easy to relate his message to both their business and personal lives. In delivering the story of his journey to becoming the Australian Ironman Champion his message to the team was clear, if you are willing to commit to the hard work and make the sacrifices necessary, then you can really achieve anything you put your mind too. Trevor was able to articulate that the drivers behind sports people are transferable to any walk of life.  The passion, honesty and openness of his presentation ensured his message and moral to the story was clearly articulated. Trevor was very generous with his time, staying post the formalities and speaking personally with those looking for the opportunity. Thank you again for sharing your story and inspiration with my team.

We were fortunate enough to get Trevor along to the H&R Block Australia national conference for a mix of keynote speech and interactive workshop. Trevor kept the audience of 70 enthralled with insights from his formative years, his decades as an elite athlete, and his post-athletic career as life coach and wellness adviser. Much more important than the stories, was the way Trevor was able to extract the lessons from each experience and make them directly relevant to the individual lives and challenges of every person in the room. This is what separates the good speakers from the great. In the second half of the session, Trevor led the group through a detailed examination of the "Deeper Why". This was the most memorable and engaging part, challenging people to critically reexamine their goals, motivations, and priorities. At least a dozen participants that I talked to after the session said that Trevor was the best external speaker that they'd ever seen at a conference. In fact, the President of H&R Block International, visiting Australia from the US to attend our conference, asked for Trevor's contact details so that he could put him forward as a potential speaker at the H&R Block global conference, with 3000+ participants. That's about as strong an endorsement as one can get!"
