NEED A FIRST CLASS BUSINESS SPEAKER?
As a business speaker, I get to travel the world to speak on key themes around leadership and presentation skills.
Whether corporate or non-profit the framework and lessons are the same. I absolutely love being on stage and use it as an opportunity to teach others how they can be confident presenting and speaking as well. Using a combination of data, storytelling, visual aids and body language, to both engage and inform my audiences wherever I go.
WHERE DO I SPEAK?
– Lunch and Learns
– Away Days
– Awards Evenings
HOW DOES IT WORK
My keynotes are usually around sixty minutes long and depending on the client can even stretch to ninety minutes. Whilst they may not seem like it, each presentation is tailored and I would have probably spent a minimum of eight hours in preparation, research and practice before I deliver it.
The speeches then not just become a dry keynote, but an interactive presentation full of energy, facts, storytelling and hopefully a masterclass for all attendees on how to deliver a first-class keynote.
I have had the pleasure of speaking to amazing international organisations such as Bloomberg, Sainsbury’s, BBC, Virgin Media, Channel 4, Asda, Unltd, Barclaycard and Northern Trust. I have also worked with local government and third sector organisations such as Unltd, UK Youth and Pocklington Trust.
I can deliver bespoke keynotes or you can chose from one of these four:
1. LEAD FROM THE CENTRE
At the heart of good organisation is a central focus on the vision of the company.
Where are we going? Why are we going there? How we you intend to get there?
Leadership at any level of the organisation is profoundly shaped by knowing the purpose, values and ethos of the organisation and collectively working to get there.
Using case studies, research and anecdotes, this keynote is a reminder to organisations as to why leadership at all levels is crucial. Using the metaphor of an orchestra, this keynote inspires audiences to think and act on driving their organisations forward. From the centre.
2. GREAT PRESENTATIONS MATTER
Whether giving a pitch, speaking at a conference, chairing an AGM, selling an idea or even networking, being able to present effectively and clearly is a necessary skill for working professionals.
This simple keynote goes some way to explaining the formulas successful speakers and presenters have used for years to make their presentations matter. Whether giving a motivational, technical or sales presentation, clients will learn how to define, design and deliver great presentations every time.
3. WHY YOUR STORY COUNTS
From the dawn of time leaders have always been able to inspire through a powerful story, whether express or implied. In the world of business, the stories we tell around the origin of the company, the products we have or our customer service are critical.
This keynote explores not only how to develop your stories in the context of the company you work for or run, but how to deliver them and when. Attendees will leave with tools as to why their stories matter, not just to customers, but to themselves.
4. A ROOM FULL OF WHITE MEN
Creating and leading a culture of inclusion in any organisation takes hard work. It is one thing to talk about diversity when organisations approach recruitment and retention but another thing to actually do it. Often the phrases diversity and inclusion can put people’s backs up but it doesn’t have to be so.
This keynote takes a provocative but evidence informed approach to developing leadership culture to make organisations more inclusive. Tackling assumptions about diversity of personnel and thought, and how inclusive cultures affect the bottom line through harnessing creativity, innovation and performance.
