Our inaugural “Right Works” awards evening was a big event for Raymond Brown Construction, with people representing shortlisted sites arriving from all over the country. Sally Gunnell’s presence and after dinner speech transformed the evening from good to excellent. Her footage of her 1992 gold medal race left us all feeling inspired and quite emotional. Later, she certainly had a very relaxed approach as she interacted with our guests – they were delighted. The feedback we have had has been superb.

Just a short note to say how fabulous Sally was today. She was so professional and accommodating – a real pleasure to work with.

Her after lunch speech was excellent; perfectly judged for the audience and you could literally hear a pin drop whilst she was talking. I’ve had lots of really positive comments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed it already.

I’d also like to thank her for letting so many of our team have photos taken with her – and for letting them hold her medals – they really appreciated the time she gave to them.

Sally’s talk perfectly accompanied the theme of our employee awards event and I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a top notch presenter who is capable of really engaging with any audience.

On behalf of my colleagues at the ICFM, I am writing to extend a big “thank you” to Sally for doing such a terrific job at our Conference on Wednesday. 
We had a record number of delegates in attendance and the day was a complete success, with Sally playing a significant part in this achievement.
Her motivational and illuminating talk was spot on and we have already received some excellent feedback from a number of delegates who attended to say how much they enjoyed her contribution on the day.
Please pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to Sally for a job very well done.

Please can you pass on my heartfelt thanks to Sally. It was an honour to meet her and the team were completely inspired and highly motivated by her words. Holding her gold medal was also a “Wow” moment! I am very grateful for the impact this has had upon the Leadership Team; the perfect finale to our Conference

We are delighted to announce Sally as the ambassador of our Partners in Sport programme and believe that her achievements in the sporting world will be inspirational to all our Partners. Not only will Sally be promoting the importance of a healthy and active lifestyle across the business, she’ll also be spending time with Partners to explain how they can transfer the skills they have learnt during the coaching qualification, back into their day-to-day roles.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support with Sally’s visit to the branch today. We had the best time…..Partners loved it, with a real buzz being created across all departments. Sally and Jon were fantastic, and we’ll be riding on the wave of their visit for some time in the branch.

Just wanted to email you to say a huge thank you to you and Sally for yesterday! Our leadership team have all commented on how truly inspirational Sally was (and they all loved getting their hands on an Olympic Gold medal)!

The girls were full of Sally Gunnell’s talk after the event. Girls have told their teachers they have been inspired in their sport and academic studies to aim high. At a Parents’ evening two days later parents were volunteering positive comments about the visit and explaining that their daughters had recounted the messages given by Sally. I have no doubt that Sally’s wise words will stay with the girls for many, many years

Sally Gunnell was truly fabulous. Her unexpected arrival, for the delegates, at today’s Leadership Conference was amazing. The WOW factor was palatable and the ‘I am so in awe’ of you’ evident.
Thank you so much for allowing JLR to make full use of the connections you’ve built through PINS. She was amazing.
