"Having decided to organise a series of Inspire Lectures we were delighted that our first speaker was Nick Hancock. Nick spoke inspirationally and without notes for over an hour about his amazing experiences on Rockall and had no trouble at all holding the attention of an audience of almost 300 ranging in age from 6 to 86! The success of his presentation, which included excellent slides and video clips, could be measured in the deluge of questions he received from members of the audience. The evening was a great success and I would recommend Nick to any organisation or school who wish to book a speaker who can motivate and inspire as well as entertain."
Bryan Lewis, Vice-Principal, Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools
"Nick’s presentation at our annual senior management conference was both inspirational and thought-provoking. The focus of our conference was innovation and Nick’s story brought the theme to life and provided vivid examples of how organisations need to approach challenges and problem-solving through research, prototyping and testing. At least we never have to risk our lives in the process! All delivered with humour and humanity."Paul Blacklock, Head of Strategy and Corporate Affairs, Calor
“Nick was a great addition to the TEDxHull 2015 roster of speakers and certainly one of the highlights of the day. For a man who spent a long time on a rock by himself, Nick certainly knew how to engage the audience! Nick pulled the entire theatre into his world with his inspiring story and proved that solid determination can pretty much achieve anything. We were lucky to have him on board for TEDxHull.”
Lewis Jackson, TEDxHull Event Coordinator
"Nick's graphic account of not just landing safely on Rockall, but day to day life there was absorbing, imaginative and humorous. We shared his fear during the storm and elation at records broken. The numerous questions following the talk were reflective of the audience’s enjoyment of the evening."
