Tristan was brilliant and everyone loved his presentation – very inspirational!
Tristan engaged the kids completely, even after a very big and hit camp day. His BYO technology set up was really well managed and he was spot on time. Afterwards, he stayed and talked to the students, and even came back the next morning at 5am to take the students for a run up the Pinnacle! At all times he was very professional, funny and passionate.

Tristan is a genuine and honest guy with an amazing story to tell. He not only captures the entire audience with his speech but he happily worked his way around our room of corporates and friendly join in conversation. He was a great success to our event and delight to have come along.
Southern Cross Care (VIC)
This is the 5th or 6th time we have had Tristan speak to our Year 12 students. He is not only an engaging presenter with a wonderful story, but he is also familiar with our school and it's students and the messages we wish him to convey to our students in preparation for their final year of secondary studies. We will happily use Tristan again with future groups of our students.

Tristan was inspirational, motivational and certainly proved that anyone who sets their minds on their dreams and goals can achieve anything. Well done Tristan.
Melton City Council
Having completed his final marathon around Albert Park Lake at the feet of the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC), Tristan Miller offered to talk to MSAC platinum members about his experiences at our Running Performance information evening in early February 2011. His inclusion in the evening became a huge draw card and his presentation – complete with video clips, photos, medals and numerous anecdotes - was exceptional. His ability to speak of his personal motivators, emotional journey, physical impact and the practical implications of such an achievement resonated with everyone in the room, from new and occasional runners to seasoned marathon participants and triathletes. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship working with Tristan at MSAC, and will be certain to call on him for further such engagements.

The speaker was inspirational, fantastic, amazing.
Possibly the best speaker I have ever seen.
One of the best if not the best.
Very interesting topic, rough diamond - not polished but very good.
Down to earth, straightforward, not arrogant, a relaxed speaker.
Robert Half International
Tristan was approachable right from the time of booking through to answering questions from the audience on his departure. He’s experience had a room full of delegates and suppliers captivated and in awe of his achievements. After his speech a small gathering waited for him to have photos and ask further questions. He was professional and polite and we thoroughly enjoyed hosting him at our conference.
CHU Underwriting Agencies Pty Ltd
Tristan was positive, inspirational and motivational. A fantastic story, showing what can be achieved with the right attitude, planning and delivery; thanks heaps Tristan for a fantastic evening!
The Investors Club
Tristan’s presentation was sensational. He had the entire audience captivated with his unbelievable story and to compliment this delivered some great messages within his presentation to our students to provide them with some real inspiration for the future. Tristan incorporated a great mix of wow factor and humour to ensure all were engaged in the presentation. He was extremely well prepared, organised and easy to deal with I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other organisations.
Sports Education Development Australia
Tristan was 100% engaging, enthusiastic and inspiring! Everyone was raving about him the next day and making plans to take part in his Bull Run next year (including the people who are most definitely NOT runners!). People who weren’t able to attend were made well aware of what they missed out on. He spoke for just over an hour but it felt like 30 mins! And he even hung around for a chat afterwards! Tristan was the perfect speaker for our networking event.
Tristan was extremely well received to the extent there wasn't a sound in the room for the duration of his talk.
