“I am head of journalism at Sussex University. Over the years I have asked Rob Walker to give a talk or workshop to my students on a number of occasions. As you might imagine I have been involved in organising dozens of guest speakers to talk to students at the Universities where I have worked. I have seen a huge variety of people, many of them famous, talk to students. I can honestly say that Rob Walker’s talks have had the greatest impact on my students. His charisma and enthusiasm for his work is highly infectious. He inspires students to take their careers seriously and to understand you have to work hard to get the job you really want to do. It goes so far as for students who have shown little interest in Sports journalism to suddenly be inspired after his talk. What’s more he is often very funny. Rob Walker is a truly outstanding public speaker.”
Dr Paul Lashmar, Sussex University
Rob Walker I can only express an approximation of the gratitude that is due to you for last night’s bravura performance: it was truly awesome. You are so skilled and pitched it perfectly right. You made the boys feel so special and at the centre of events. I can’t repay you for your contribution to the success of the evening.

Rob Walker is an extremely funny, sincere and professional speaker who will always make sure he does thorough research on whoever he is interviewing or on the event that he is covering. Earlier this year, Rob Walker hosted our Salute ’66 event in Manchester. He was required to work through a lunch and dinner event and he was an absolute pleasure to work with the entire day, he had done all of his preparations for the interviews he undertook with Sir Geoff Hurst and Gordon Banks and the feedback from his table that we sat him on was that he was fantastic throughout the event. A really nice guy and a real professional, could not recommend Rob Walker higher.’

Rob Walker thanks for your kind words and for your part in making the Lincolnshire Annual Sports Awards the event a great success. All the feedback has been great. On a personal note it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with you and it would be great to have you back at the event in the future.

Rob Walker I wanted to say a massive thank you for hosting our Y Conference again this year, I know it’s all very last minute so it helps immensely that you’re an expert, and so easy to work with – especially as it was our first year running the show.
