“Paul Hart and Antony Jinman exceeded all our expectations when they fulfilled a team building brief at our recent public health away day. The challenge was to motivate, inspire and challenge a fairly diverse group of practitioner who were not accustomed to working together on a daily basis. Antony and Paul had the audience captivated with stories of their own personal endeavours and succeeding in the face of adversity. Their recollections were vivid and truly insightful, reflecting on their thoughts, feelings, weaknesses and strengths, as individuals and as members of a team. Supported by stunning photography of polar landscapes and expeditions through treacherous terrain, we appreciated the magnitude of their achievements. Antony and Paul were able to utilise the teams admiration and engaged everyone in an afternoon of team building activities, which pushed us to think beyond our personal comfort zones and explore the strengths within our own teams.
The feedback from the whole of the public health team was overwhelmingly positive, with an audible buzz of excitement!”
Jan Potter - Deputy head of Health improvement
“Antony is undoubtedly an inspirational leader and has managed through his own perseverance to combine both his career and his passion. I have only known Antony for a relatively short time in his partnership with Blacks but his expert knowledge in the field of exploration and his ability to convey the subject matter in a way that is educational and interesting makes me believe he will grow the early success of ETE into something quite special.”
"Antony is a master at his trade. He is able to operate effectively in extreme environments, able to lead, motivate and keep things moving towards their targets. He is an ideas man, and has boundless energy as well as a focused belief in his cause. He's also a really nice bloke to get around with."
Duncan Eadie - IT Director at Foot Anstey LLP
"Antony was the first keynote speaker at our annual Universities South West 2010 Conference and gave a brilliantly motivational performance. I have received so many positive comments about his speech, how appropriate it was to the conference theme and how inspirational the delegates found him.
Finding the right keynote speak to open your event, one who is able to engage the audience and set the tone is always very difficult, but I feel that Antony was just right; with many of his anecdotes being referred back to by later speakers throughout the event.
Antony is an accomplished but very natural public speaker who appeals to, and is able to engage all audiences"
Karen Corr - Student Recruitment & Widening Participation On-Campus Events Manager at University of Exeter
"I had the pleasure to meet Antony last week. He delivered a presentation on leadership and team work to my group. It was fascinating to hear his success story and learn about the challenges he faced. He is a very passionate and determine individual. I highly recommend Antony, he truly inspired my team and the work he is doing with ETE is incredible. Hope we can meet again!"
