"Will presented as a guest speaker at one of our Training and Developments days on resilience and the content could not have been more pertinent to the day-to-day operations of our Senior Leaders. Will's raw emotion and unembellished honesty demonstrated resilience in it's finest form and gave our leaders genuine perspective on the challenges they are currently facing. Our group thoroughly engaged with will's speech and his confronting real life experiences made the content even more compelling and powerful.
I would highly recommend Will and encourage others to engage with his unique flare. There was a BUZZ around the office after he had gone and his presentation is still being talked about now"

"We were lucky enough to spend an hour with Will where he presented on ‘inspiring teams through change and resilience’. This presentation gave such an interesting and thought-provoking perspective on a topic that you wouldn’t initially think a former British Army Major could bring into the boardroom and make relatable to a Senior Leadership Team, but it just worked. Will’s honest and down to earth approach made it easy to put yourself in his shoes for a moment and left you truly understanding the meaning of resilience. I would highly recommend any organisation to engage with Will for leadership support, as his unique ability to reach the hearts and minds of those in the room, is second to none."
Head of Marketing and Digital Strategy, Gen Physio
"We were lucky enough to engage Will for a year, firstly to undertake an assessment of our middle management team and then as a result, to take a group of approximately 40 emerging leaders through his management workshop program “Traits of Leadership”. Will inspired this group with his personal experiences and engaging manner, leading them through topics covering accountability, communication, trust, awareness, empathy, courage, optimism and inspiration. Several of the participants have already demonstrated their growth and achieved promotion within our organisation, with others well on their way to becoming great leaders of the future.
Will also provided excellent support and feedback to our executive team throughout the workshop program and has kept in touch with insights and inspiration post completion. As our business moves in to the next phase, we will definitely be re-engage Will to assist us in reaching the limits of our abilities to lead our team in to the future.
I would unconditionally encourage any leader to engage Will in their organisation, his unique ability to engage people from all walks of life and an uncompromising commitment to honesty ensure that he can help you to get the best out of any team".

“Will spoke to the CEO Institute, a Group of 18 senior CEOs of major national organisations, on his personal journey, the leadership that matters, and world best practices on performance planning. He gave an outstanding presentation that deeply impressed all the CEOs there with his honesty, clear purpose and passion. Also with his leadership insights and innovative solutions for well based strategic directions and key personal priorities. I would unhesitatingly support Will Gooderson to other business leaders to provide engaging and insightful presentations on leadership and performance planning but also on creative and effective solutions for business transformations”.
