General Youth Sport Trust Testimonial
“Gail is a truly inspirational speaker who has an undeniable ability to connect with all age groups from reception classes to adults. At the end of her presentation, Gail leaves you feeling like you can achieve absolutely anything you put your mind to – you just need to be determined and to have the resilience to overcome obstacles, however big or small.”
21st Century Legacy
“I first saw Gail speak at an awards ceremony in 2011, and when it came to the Bucks and Milton Keynes Sports Awards Gail was my first choice compere for the evening. The Bucks and MK Sports Awards celebrate the inspirational achievements and effort everyday people put into making sport happen locally. This year’s event was particularly high profile to celebrate the London 2012 Games, and the new £23M Waterside Theatre was selected as a venue, and 250+ guest invited to celebrate everything that is good about sport. Gail rose magnificently to the occasion and not only brings her own Olympic pedigree, but more importantly she has a genuine connection with people; the audience, the sponsors and the winners. We particularly saw this when Gail assumed the role of Michael Parkinson and interviewed 3 athletes from the 2012 Games, Gail was very natural and engaging; and subsequent feedback has revealed this to be one of the highlights of the evening. Thanks for making our evening so special.”
Mark Ormerod, Director Bucks and MK Sports Partnership
“Gail Emms is an inspiration: she wowed our SportsAid lunch guests with her Olympic stories and her vow ‘to be the best you she can be’. Thanks to her mum, Jan, who spurred Gail on to achieve a Silver Medal win at the 2004 Sydney Olympic Games in the mixed doubles with Nathan Robinson and to become No 1 in the World Rankings in 2005-2006. A true professional and well worth listening to.”
