In recent years Gavan has been asked to speak about his challenges and has therefore become an accomplished public speaker. He has presented at a variety of different events and for a broad range of organisations - from small intimate school halls to the Aviva Stadium. He is experienced in corporate presentations, public speaking to large audiences, public appearances and on stage Q and A sessions. He has also conducted extensive media interviews both on live radio and TV and also on podcasts.


While speaking, Gavan weaves an intriguing story using his past struggles, his recovery from addiction, his career as a deep sea saturation diver (considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the world) explaining how and why he competes and continually strives to break boundaries in the world of adventure sports.  His presentations have been described as motivational, inspirational and enthralling. Moreover, feedback from audiences constantly use terms such as down to earth, relatable and approachable as Gavan is also keen to meet and share his experiences with individuals and groups.

Gavan is an active extreme environment athlete, with his next expedition planned for February 2018 in Alaska, Gavan has a unique perspective on preparing for his next challenge and that in itself provides deep insights into his performance mind set and preparations.
