Rudinov Vincent

Founder & CEO, DIFEST

“I had the pleasure of hosting Martin Stark at our recent DIFEST GLOBAL 2021. An inclusive champion, Martin doesn’t just talk…He BELIEVES. A true boxer and a visionary, he is fighting hard to knock-out biases in the world of sport. As a world leader, Martin carries a wealth of experience that comes from his mission of driving change into the world of boxing. I am happy to recommend Martin on speaking engagements sharing his journey of making the world of sports an inclusive ring for all to come and play.”

“Martin tailored his speech to the recommendations we had and attended a few meetings before the forum. I can’t emphasize more how much the session was enjoyed by all whom attended and received many comments afterward in regards to his presentation. He makes such an impact with his presence and the nature of his presentation that his audience are left wiser and satisfied with the subject at hand. Personally I thoroughly enjoyed dealing with him to organise the session and will have him back again when opportunity arises in future. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met and I feel honoured in his presence. If you are after a speaker that makes and impact and assists your audience for the better then I highly recommend having Martin speak at your sessions”

“Martin is a consummate professional with the perfect balance of vulnerability, relatability and confidence for any speaking engagement. We recently had Martin on a guest of our internal podcast – Rainbow Voices, and he was able to share his personal experience and connect with the audience in a way that was both inspiring and educational. Martin’s passion for creating a more inclusive and diverse world is evident in everything he does, and I have no doubt he would make a powerful impact as a speaker at your next event.”

Creator Engagement Manager, TikTok

“Martin’s presentation to the TikTok team was not only motivating, but deeply inspiring. I admire his resilience and courage to be a spokesperson for the LGBTQIA+ communities and do so in a way that is creating true impact. I know we walked away feeling invigorated and ready to tackle our own fears to not only improve our lives but those in the community.”

Martin provided the Keynote for our school’s Wear it Purple Day. With personal anecdotes, cleverly linked to questions later posed to the audience, short videos, and visuals, Martin engaged our students from beginning to end. Martin invited students to the stage to amplify the theme with their relatable and personal flavour. Additionally, Martin’s invitation for full audience participation—boxing, clapping and singing was engaging and fun.


The serious and sometimes challenging topics addressed through Wear It Purple Day were delivered in a positive and easily understood package, concluding with a challenge to action for our community. Our students loved the way Martin related to them through sport and his unpredictable storytelling that kept them not knowing what would come next.


In the lead-up to the event, correspondence was easy. Martin made several site visits to workshop the best approach and to integrate his presentation with the 2023 school motto – Speak with Respect and Act with Integrity. We would not hesitate to recommend Martin Stark
