“Alec Potts was such a dynamic and engaging speaker at our recent BITE conference in front of 300 small business owners. As an Olympic medallist who also runs a business he entertained and inspired the audience with his journey and the key principles that he successfully applied in his lead up to the Olympics, the Olympic games and his business. I would highly recommend him as a talented young motivation speaker for all ages.”
- Shannon Smit, Director SMART Business Solutions and organised of BITE
“Alec delivered a speech to 700 students here at Melbourne High School. What impressed us was his ease and poise in front of such a large student cohort, as well as his capacity to pitch his message at the appropriate level - the students were immediately captivated and engaged in Alec’s message.Alec delivered an enthralling account of his Olympic competition in Rio 2016, but perhaps more impressive was his insight into sports psychology and how this could be applied to the students’ lives and their academic pursuits. Alec’s insight into mind training was instructive and many of the students have since expressed their appreciation for the advice.
We found Alec to be amenable, extremely professional and would certainly recommend him to other schools and organisations.”

"This year (2017) one of our speakers was Alec Potts, a young Olympian from the little known world of international archery. I know that I speak on behalf of all our members when I say that his address to us has only been surpassed on a few occasions and on those instances by those with many years of experience in their respective sports and with a professional after dinner speaking background.
Alec’s skill as an archer, confident modesty, motivation, empathy to our members and sense of humour is a credit to him and his sport and I have no hesitation in recommending him to you as a public speaker. I share the view of many of our members when I say that we feel that Alec has a great future as a motivational speaker."

"Alec came and spoke to a whole school assembly this term and, as a returning student coming back to his old school, this presented quite a challenge. After schooling a video of his Rio Olympics bronze medal winning experience and talking to the audience for an engaging 20 minutes, Alec then answered questions from our Principal before opening up to a broader Q&A session with the student and teacher audience. Far from being intimidated by returning to his old school, Alec was one of the most engaging speakers we’ve had at our assemblies. He was able to speak with clarity about his own passion for archery and his own learning journey before responding to a range of questions with intelligence, humility and good humour. The feedback from the students after Alec’s talk was incredibly positive; for many a highlight of the year. "
- David Burton, Woodleigh School Head
“It's true you can teach an old dog new tricks even after many years in the sport. So happy with the clear improvement in my technique after only the first few sessions with Alec. Appreciate his cool calm and collected approach. He is attentive and clear with his instructions. Can't wait to see where I go from here.”
- Tania Sacco
"Sentius had a fantastic day of learning how to fire a bow n arrow. Alec's friendly and professional approach made sure everyone was hitting the target; and really helped in understanding the skill and patience involved in the sport. Seeing Alec's Olympic medal was a real highlight."
- Sentius Group
"Lovin the new deep orange spinnies, cheers Eliza Archery!"

We decided to invest in professional coaching after Alec struck an instant rapport with our son, who he has now been coaching privately for several months. We have been impressed with Alec's natural approach to instructional education and his ability to communicate so effortlessly with our son; from relating metaphors to technique to making jokes! His vast knowledge, impressive skill set, friendly demeanor and positive enthusiasm instills confidence in his students. I couldn't recommend Alec highly enough to anyone who is considering to pursuit this sport seriously.
“Recently I resumed archery after a break of more than 40 years. I was pretty happy the way it came back to me, and was shooting fairly consistent, good intermediate scores as I had done decades earlier. The scores were creeping up a little with a lot of practice. When my wife talked me into entering the World Masters Games as almost my first competition in 43 years we decided I should get some coaching for the first time ever. We found Alec and after 3 coaching sessions my scores leapt 30% in a couple of weeks. A few weeks later at the Games in Auckland I got a 5th and a 6th in Field and 13th in target! Way above anything I ever expected! More than worth the 5-6 hours travelling and few dollars for coaching.”
- Alan Clark
"Alec did an outstanding job of instructing, motivating and engaging our students in Archery. His passion and enthusiasm for the sport rubbed off on the students and to have them all arriving early waiting to start the sessions was quite amazing. He was also very thorough with his safety briefings and instruction and always had the student’s safety as his number one priority. The equipment he provided was excellent and the progression in the students throughout the unit was very obvious. Our students absolutely loved having Alec come to the school and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking at booking him".
