“Whatever the challenge, Mike and his team understood the brief and delivered – with excellent results.”

Dennis Hopper

Director of Facilities Management, University of Leeds.

“Mike helped us to get our messages across in ways that reach our audience and say what we really believe. He understood and conveyed our passion for our organisation.”

Helen Forsyth

CEO, Berwickshire Housing Association.

Mike Stevenson is a speaker with a difference. He can make an impact on attendees at seminars, conferences and other events which I have rarely seen an individual able to do, whether the audience is a specialist one, or a wide-ranging one from a variety of agencies or indeed young persons and children.
In a low-key yet utterly compelling way, Mike is able to engage immediately with the audience and ensure that his thought-provoking messages reach each and every one. His style is both spontaneous and informal but has a cohesion that indicates a well thought through approach.
He leaves the listeners with a great deal to reflect on- always the sign of a speaker who has been able to access his own feelings at a deep level and share his thoughts in an appealing and positive manner.” 

Sandra Brown

Author, Playwright and Campaigner

“We gave Mike the challenge of motivating senior public finance professionals and politicians at our annual conference.  It was a challenge which Mike not only met but exceeded.  His impact was such that we had to ask him to return to address our graduation ceremony.  Mike remains the only speaker to have addressed both of these events and has inspired young graduates as well as senior professionals”

 Don Peebles
Head of CIPFA Scotland

“It takes rare insight, skill and confidence to inspire business leaders to a common vision and cause. That’s why I brought Mike Stevenson’s Thinktastic to London – they, uniquely, have it all and get results.”

Gail Newton
Chief Executive, Logic Homes, London.

“If you need someone to inspire your audience, look no further. Mike draws on his lived experience with courage and humility and highlights the possibilities for the future with passion and enthusiasm. Effortlessly he refocuses the audience’s view until there are no more barriers, only possibilities. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and driven, he is a natural connector and expert communicator. His  ideas have a clarity of vision and leave a lasting impact. You will forget many conference speakers.  I can assure you that Mike Stevenson will not be among these.” 

Linda Jane McLean

“I am in awe of anyone who can stand up and deliver a 30 minute speech without any slides or aids and speak as fluently and passionately as you did.”

Already we have had several attendees feedback that your presentation was excellent and inspiring.”

Alex Paterson
