There is often much to be gained from cross-sector learning; it engages the audience with a fresh approach, and relevant messages are often brought home in a more memorable fashion. Understanding this, N-Sea facilitated a presentation for the entire project team, on board the Siem N-Sea at mobilisation. Horseback UK provides a safe and supportive environment to aid the recovery of UK servicemen and women, who have been injured in combat, and brought with them a new perspective to the topics of team membership, mutual support, personal responsibility, empowerment, the necessity for feedback and so on. In other words, all behaviours critical to a safe working environment. By providing this session, N-Sea demonstrated its clear – and creative – commitment to an incident-free work scope. Those who attended were both inspired and motivated.
‘It was refreshing to be presented with a different take on safety behaviour from out with the industry. Jay ‘s experiences highlighted the need to look out for ourselves and fellow team members in the working environment to ensure that we all go home safe on the back of an incident free campaign’
Dan Addie – Diver
‘The presentation was both inspirational and educational and provided a hard hitting realisation of the effects of accident/incident’.
Mark Ross – 3.4 Inspection Coordinator
The Horseback UK presentation was well received by all team members and was a welcome addition to our pre-project briefing. I would encourage their involvement in future campaigns’.
Neil Landsborough – OPM
Horseback safety briefing found to be a brilliant and inspirational presentation for the start of the job. Very informative and inspiring.

I thought the presentation was excellent and Jay came across very well. I suppose it takes a lot to look at yourself on a film every time one gives a presentation like that, after what he’d experienced. You see these things on the news but until you actually hear it from one who experienced it at first hand, you don’t really appreciate that there’s more to being injured than loss of limbs etc. That part hit home as well.

I thought it was very inspirational and yes I was a bit lost for words…….
Customer Fulfilment Coordinator – Drilling Services
Indeed it was very touching presentation. If you think about your small daily troubles, they are nothing compared to this story.
Joanna (GE Oil and Gas)
Hit a nerve, 100% respect, that was some journey, I have never stopped thinking about it all week.
Ian (GE Oil and Gas)
The presentation was really interesting, not sure if it’s the correct thing to say but I enjoyed it!
Just wish there was more personality in this place.
Gillian (GE Oil and Gas)
First class presentation and total respect to the way he kept it together!!
Graham (GE Oil and Gas)
As previously mentioned fantastic talk and a guy that I admire.
Rhea (GE Oil and Gas)
I just wanted to add my own personal thanks for the time you spent with us yesterday and sincerely hope that you got as much out of the afternoon session as I certainly did. To hear your presentation was something very special to me and you could have heard a pin drop in the room, that’s how much you had the attention of colleagues.
David France, ESCS Programme Manager
Thank you for a truly memorable day last Thursday. The feedback from our graduates was that the day was about “having the confidence to lead” and the way you covered team building and communication skills was particularly effective. That’s a real achievement.
Caroline Bennet, Graduate Program – Premier Oil
Great format, very good discussion, well organised, well done to the team.
Technical Manager Premier Oil
The bits we loved the most were hearing you talk about your real experiences. You were engaging, clear and articulate throughout, in fact the words we used were ‘truly inspirational’.
John Lewis – Aberdeen
It is me who should be thanking you. I am so delighted that you found it a pleasure and privilege to talk at our Conference – but the reality is that I/we found it far more of pleasure and privilege to listen and learn about your recovery and extraordinary (or maybe it’s far more ordinary than I realised?) experiences with horses. To say your talk was well received couldn’t be more of an understatement – I can’t even remember the number of people who said how quite brilliant you were – mixing humour with your mesmerising story. As you say, HRH loved it – that was quite obvious. And I think I might be able to set you up on a full-time speaker circuit, such are the number of people who said they’d love to hear you again – including the Household Cavalry!

Your last presentation 2013 went down very well and was greatly appreciated, I’m sure 2 years on your presentations will have developed as you’ve gained experience, I look forward to it already.
