NEED A FIRST CLASS BUSINESS SPEAKER?
As a business speaker, I get to travel the world to speak on key themes around professional development, business storytelling and presentation skills.
Whether corporate or non-profit the framework and lessons are the same. I absolutely love what 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 attendee 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 and Pocklington Trust.
Here is a list of my four most demanded speeches.
1. 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.
2. SUCCESS ON YOUR TERMS
We all want to have work that we enjoy and is fulfilling both financially and mentally.
But how often do we get to define success on our own terms?
This keynote is about how professionals can design and develop a holistic career plan. It shows you to how to developing an intentional narrative about where you want to go, how you are going to get there and who is in your dream team on that journey.
It is not about creating a perfect story of your life but rather shaping one that you want to pursue that can bring meaning to you and those around you.
3. LEAD FROM THE CENTRE
At the heart of good organisations 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.
4. HOW TO DELIVER A GREAT PRESENTATION, EVERY DAMN TIME
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. Clients will learn how to define, design and deliver great presentations every time.
