“While attending the Sunderland Health Champions Awards in December 2017, I was fortunate to hear an inspiring and motivational talk from guest speaker, Gary McKendrick. Having not attended such a talk before, I was sceptical of how beneficial it would be. However, Gary was so real, inspiring and conveyed in such a true personal way that my scepticism was quickly dispelled.

The use of personal experience and theory give an excellent mix of thought-provoking and self-awareness. This vividly allowed the audience to self-reflect.  I left the event feeling invigorated;

I would suggest if you have the opportunity to attend a talk by Gary you make every effort to attend”.
