“Greig was the final speaker during our annual fundraising conference and we were completely unprepared for the rollercoaster journey he led us through, sharing some of his most challenging life experiences alongside witty and human anecdotes from his adventures to date. Greig is incredibly charismatic and a wonderfully natural speaker who instinctively seems to know when to lighten the mood and when to take you to the edge of tears. We left the session re-energised and utterly inspired!”
Claire Young, Fundraising Manager, RSPCA
‘We invited Greig to speak at our annual primary care conference in June where he was an absolute inspiration and given a much deserved standing ovation from an audience of GPs, consultants, practice nurses and Macmillan colleagues. He recounted his cancer experience from childhood into adulthood and did so without sentimentality, yet the insight gained into the devastating toll cancer and its treatment can have, not only the physical but the emotional and psychological impact , touched everyone in the room. From the moment he stepped – or rather leapt – on to the stage, Greig radiated energy and optimism and it became clear how he was able to turn his experience into a force for change in his life and the lives of others. His amazing journey spanning the globe not only raised awareness but also showed how he confronted his own personal demons. As clinicians, it’s so important to understand the cancer experience of our patients, Greig’s talk did that in a powerful way. He also showed he wasn’t defined by cancer but, rather, used it to start his own journey of self discovery.’
Dr Rosie Loftus, Chief Medical Officer, Macmillan
“When Greig came to speak to us at Channel 4, I was expecting to leave in tears. I couldn’t have been more wrong, while harrowing, Greig’s story is uplifting, encouraging and exhilarating! You hear him speak and think “I can do this, You can do this…WE can do this”. He’s an inextinguishable light.”
