“I worked with Derek during the financial crisis. Due to Derek’s mentoring, within a year I attracted 97 new clients and over £12,000,000 of new funds under management; thank you pal. Derek has been a great support and I will never forget what he has done helping me. It’s funny, writing this has made me feel very emotional…”
“Derek is a giant amongst communicators and motivators, and it has been my pleasure to know him…. I watched Derek grow his powerful communication style which impacts you in both the head and the heart…. He cares deeply about the impact of his message and understands the value that he brings to the people whose lives he touches…. If raw talent is any indicator of potential, he will be one of those guys who (as Zig Ziglar once said) we will ‘see at the top!!'”
“I was at a place in my life personally & professionally, that I knew what I wanted, but didn’t know how to achieve it. After a few of Derek’s workshops I started to put things into place. Writing a diary, reading books, setting myself daily standards. I wanted people to see a change in me. But Derek told me I had to change myself before others saw a change. I’m more focused than ever & my wife & family have seen those changes. Professionally, I’ve just started my new job at Leicester City Football club, heading up the scouting department from 17-21. Thanks for everything Derek”
“Derek Mills is one of the most engaging, authentic speakers I have ever heard. His stage presence is outstanding and it allows you to connect with him in a way that you don’t with other speakers. His story and the content that he shares is totally unique.”
“After attending Derek’s Daily Standards session I have a handful of gems to start my journey of fulfilment and financial freedom. Derek’s style of presenting made it simple to grasp and understand the importance of the 10 second philosophy! I would highly recommend this to those who seek direction, purpose and that missing key”
“Derek has an extraordinary ability to connect and ‘get it’ and has been a brilliant partner in working with me to clarify, streamline and achieve my objectives. Derek is a brilliant combination of gifted (commercially) and lifted (personally)”
…”I understand the philosophy of “the standards guy” it makes total sense, it was easy to put into practice as it is bringing out and working with my true self. Also it is not at odds with, but agrees with and builds on other techniques I believe strongly in. I love the fact that the more I discover about the way we can live and what is available to us the more it all connects and makes sense”….
“As a busy working mum, I constantly battled with myself about being the best I could be… Various authors talked about setting goals so big they would blow your mind … but, I didn’t want to drive a Lamborghini or travel the globe. All I wanted was to be happy, feel fulfilled in my work, be a good mother and role model for my son, a good girlfriend and a good friend!
…I used the system that Derek describes in his book to concentrate on what I believed to be my key areas, and I set new Daily Standards that felt right for me, that I would stick to for just one day at a time!
My life changed literally overnight. I felt I was finally achieving in every area that I was focusing on. As a result I had a great sense of well- being. I became healthier both mentally and physically, more focused and happier…”
“Derek Mills is an inspirational speaker and an incredible coach. He has spoken to my audience a number of times and has always been well received with fantastic feedback. And having personally benefited from private coaching sessions with Derek, I highly recommend him.”
”Derek Mills is an exceptionally gifted and insightful business man, with outstanding leadership skills. The results he achieves for his own life and the clients he works with are amazing. He’s mastered the art of ‘being who he is’, and is a great example of the power of setting standards in all areas of life…”
“…The presentation by Mr Derek Mills at this year’s Blast Off was not only refreshing, but well needed, in order that we start the year on grounded footing as we seek to raise the daily standards, not only for self, but for the company and its customers by extension…”
