There’s no pretence, no act with Steven. He speaks as himself and is genuine in his belief in what he’s saying, because it’s what he has lived. He shares stories of the challenges he has faced openly, as well as the tips and techniques he used to over come them. His engagement with you as the listener is very warm and honest, mixing humour and sadness, reminding us of the importance of the now - the immediate experience, the lived moment. It’s not about waiting or worrying. And while we hear this kind of stuff all the time, Steven’s passion in sharing his story and its learnings makes you really take it in.

I engaged Mr Steven Farrell on 30th May this year for a school graduation.
I needed someone who could deliver a hard hitting message in a palatable format.
Steven delivered an amazing speech that hit home with so many of the 600 plus in attendance, a mix of students, parents and teaching staff.
His message was precise and clear but presented with charisma and I received great feedback from his presentation in the days after the graduation.
I would highly recommend Steven for any speaking engagement, he is a pleasure to work with and delivers in a professional manner at every step of the process.
I wish him the very best of luck in all his future endeavours

What an inspiring young man. From the moment he arrived onto the stage his smile lit up the room and his laughter was infectious. Steven told a harrowing story of overcoming adversity with a light heartedness I’ve rarely heard before from someone who has gone through so much. I found myself thinking: if he can smile and laugh at his difficulties, what have I to complain about?! My takeaway was how important it is to enjoy life and not spend time worrying and I’ll be using some of the techniques he shared. Steven also stayed around after the talk to chat and I’ve heard people describe his personality as magnetic and I agree. I get the feeling his only motivation is simply to inspire people to live their life and enjoy it. What a wonderful message.

Your story is brave and inspiring Steve and your honesty is what makes people wake up. People like me as a parent and the transition year students in O’Reilly Hall recently. Life is not a rehearsal. We’re Live right now.
