Client Testimonials for Shane as A Public Speaker
We were given Shane’s name though a referral from Vodafone Ireland which was good enough for us! He spoke at our Senior Leadership Team Away-Day and was absolutely fantastic with his delivery of a very relevant, motivational and inspiring presentation. The feedback was beyond excellent and caught all by surprise. We will certainly look to use Shane’s undoubted talents again.
Mick Sweeney, New Ireland Assurance, Managing Director (Interim)
“We recently asked Shane Cradock to present at one of our Customer Seminars, held in Croke Park in March 2012. The event itself was attended by over 160 people. Shane was his usual informative, engaging and inspiring self. He touched on the personal, and made the audience sit up and listen.
He spoke off the cuff for a long period of time, and you could have heard a pin drop. He had them hooked in seconds. In place of the usual hoard of hungry conference attendees, prelunch – he had an avid group of listeners. Highly recommended as a thought provoking speaker that really gives something of meaning to the audience. It made the day.”.
Sally Poff, Client Services Director, Milner Browne - part of IIS Group
“The feedback we have received since your session was truly overwhelming. Such a positive reaction and what you said has really stuck with people. In fact there was one lady who had just been on a 2 day training course but she got much more out of your 2 hours! The most inspiring talk we have ever had.”
- Karen Morton, Marketing Director, Dell EMEA Global Insights Group Feedback following a 2 hour talk to 50 Dell executives on Sustaining High Performance
“Shane spoke at our Annual Conference to nearly 200 delegates, and everyone in the room was hanging on to every last word. His passion for his subject comes through as he spoke, and he captivated our room of hungry restaurateurs and industry experts very well.
He added an awful lot to our 2013 Conference experience, he didn’t just read off the page- he spoke on a professional and personal level, engaging with the audience at all times.
Our social media reacted very positively when we tweeted his words of wisdom, and everyone left the room a lot more inspired than when they had gone in. We won’t be forgetting his three vital tools to any business in a hurry- confidence, clarity and communication- and Shane has these three things in abundance.”.
Adrian Cummins, CEO, Restaurants Association of Ireland
“I highly recommend Shane as a speaker. He gave an hour long talk to a room of business owners and executives in London and gave them real value in terms of insights, experiences and a useful framework for improving their performance in business and life. His style is very personal and he provoked much positive thought and questioning from the audience. Overall his event was inspiring, memorable and most importantly useful.”.
James Amos, Director of Boodles and Chairman of Next Generation Forum, Institute For Family Business UK
“With only a 45 minute session available with Shane we found his approach to be a very personal one which connected with all staff successfully in this short timeframe. He was professional and engaging and the result was a thought provoking reaction from all who were involved on the day. His messages were simple and showed how putting them into practice could enhance both your professional and personal life. Feedback from all staff was very positive and there was a high level of energy in the business once completed.”
Niamh Cosgrave, HR Manager, MedLab Pathology
“Our goal is to ensure our guests learn something from every speaker at our events. Shane was an excellent choice and provided us with a very insightful presentation which left our guests wanting more. Sometimes we don’t stop to take stock of where we are and where we want to go, due to time constraints or fear. Shane encouraged everyone to overcome these challenges where they left feeling motivated, with the knowledge that it’s very important, and rewarding to take stock regularly.”
Valerie O'Reilly, President of the Clonmel Chamber
“Shane gave a great talk in Dublin about his MARC model to our group of over 80 business leaders. It was informative, insightful and thought provoking. The feedback from attendees was extremely positive following the talk.”
Neil Redmond, President of The MBA Association of Ireland
“I have booked Shane a number of time to speak at events for myself and my clients. Shane is very versatile in terms of his ability to engage the audience, and I have seen him tailor his presentation to connect with who is in the room – a key skill for any presenter worth their salt. Shane presents in a manner that connects with people – he is both humbling and humourous, while still getting his message across. I would highly recommend Shane for any event or training workshop.”
Fiona Kelly, Director of Conferencing & Events, Zoom In
I have found working with Shane Cradock to be an extremely rewarding experience on many levels.
He is an expert at helping me chip through the layers and get to the core of things. I find myself forced to look at whatever topic we happen to be working on with fresh and more honest eyes – very rewarding and motivating.
But, even more importantly, I have become more aware of the progress in the now – almost like I can actually feel myself growing. It’s not just this hard-to-express growth and support that are my gains.
In real figures, in the ten months since I first started working with Shane, my average sales have increased by a massive 183%. And the margin by at least 10% due to the added value I can offer through increased focus and personal efficiency.
I’m very grateful for having been introduced to Shane. He’s not only good, he’s also fun and has a wicked sense of humour! Highly recommend working with him.

This training helped to bring real clarity to my way of working. It helped to sharpen my thinking. I’d estimate a 50% impact on ability to get more of what matters done and 60% improvement in my clarity of mind. Other areas that benefitted were my sleep, energy and communication with my team.
