JEREMY GOSS TESTIMONIAL
I first began working with Jerry when he became Community Ambassador at Norwich City FC. He took a real interest in our Fair Play Scheme with the club and he has contributed to many of our Peer Support training sessions and conferences at the club. What impresses me most about Jerry is his uncanny ability to strike absolutely the right note, whatever audience is in front of him. His tremendous career as a professional footballer of international class enables him not only to be an inspiring role model to young people, but also he can draw on a wealth of experience as well. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and we at Flegg value our partnership with Jerry immensely.

Saint Felix School – Jeremy Goss, Former City Legend Inspires Sports Stars – 5/2/2010
Jeremy Goss, former professional footballer and Community Ambassador for Norwich City delivered two motivational modules from his inspiring ‘LifSkills-LoveSport’ workshop with budding sports stars at Saint Felix High School. Footballing star Goss presented the modules to GCSE and A Level PE students and the school’s elite swimming squad, with the aim to inspire them to achieve.
During the two workshops entitled ‘Confidence and Happiness’ and ‘Motivation and Inspiration’, Mr Goss asked the students to focus on their dreams and to ask themselves why and how they will achieve them. He talked about happiness, the ability to smile and to choose your own attitude and how these factors will build confidence and ultimately success.
The students really responded to Mr Goss, I could tell by the look on their faces and the answers they gave that they were enjoying the workshop. He focussed on motivation, which is obviously a crucial part of anyone’s life.
At the end of the talks, Jeremy asked the pupils for words that described the workshops, and they said, “inspirational”, “thought provoking” and “motivating”. Delving deeper into the content of the talks, one student said, “I feel really happy now, I feel more confident and more positive”.
As a teacher working within Saint Felix ‘I recommend Jeremy’s LifeSkills-LoveSport workshop to any other school. He can really get students motivated to achieve.

I have worked at NCFC Study Centre since January 2007, and on numerous occasions I have had the pleasure of being present when Jeremy Goss is giving a talk. I’m always delighted when I know Jerry is speaking because he has the ability to captivate and entertain an audience.
In his role as Community Ambassador for NCFC, Jerry supported our work in a number of ways: attending prize giving ceremonies as guest of honour; leading question and answer sessions with school groups; visiting schools to speak to them at the end of reading projects; telling stories to groups of families in local libraries. I was always so impressed with the way he could adapt his presentation style depending on the age and level of ability of his audience. As a trained teacher this took me years to perfect. Jerry is naturally talented at public speaking and is relaxed, funny and engaging. Whether the audience was made up of 6 year olds or 60 year olds, they would all warm to him and hang off his every word.
Jerry has the ability to give motivational talks that avoided being clichéd and are genuinely inspiring. He talks about his own challenges and setbacks with honesty and humour and has convinced an audiences to stay focussed and follow their dreams. He is also an extremely talented storyteller and knows how to use pace and imagery to enthral his listeners, a gift I appreciated even more after seeing Jerry perform alongside a trained storyteller.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jerry and his ability to inspire, enthral and entertain an audience.

Bayer Crop Science – 9/2/2010
I have known Jeremy for several years during which time he has been the Norwich City Football Club representative for our sponsorship of the Academy U16’s & U18’s Teams. I have found him to be reliable, honest and trustworthy in his dealings and he has always been good humoured and pleasant during face to face meetings.
Jeremy was often responsible for bringing players to meet young school children who were taking part in our sponsorships and he had a very easy manner which set both the player and the children at their ease. He was excellent at motivating the children to partake in events and is a gifted speaker, having a natural charm that endears his listeners to him.
Jeremy is the kind of person that inspires confidence in both young and old alike and we will greatly miss his input into our sponsorship events. I have no hesitation in recommending Jeremy Goss to any future employer or sponsor.
