Stimulating and informative talks that touch people.

Thanks for checking out my speaking page and considering me to speak at your event.

I speak mostly about leadership and organisational effectiveness; change management; procurement & supply chain management; personal effectiveness; career growth and success; and Africa.

Clients typically engage me to deliver keynote speeches; webinars; podcasts; contribute to industry forums and panels; or to speak to work groups and leadership teams at corporate events. And some clients combine my speech with providing copies of my books to attendees at the event.

Whatever the context, I deliver stimulating and informative talks that touch people and get their juices flowing.

Don’t just take my word for it, see what others say about my talks.

My speaking engagements have included business and motivational talks to varied audiences in several countries in Europe, America, Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, including multi-country keynote speeches for the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS).

Described by one delegate as “a philosopher from the future,” my unique insights on the human spirit and the adventure of life consistently imbue audiences and individuals with inspiration and courage to reach beyond their perceived capabilities and achieve radical transformations.

When you engage me, you can expect;
  • Expedient and professional communication all the way through
  • A telephone or Skype consultation (or face-to-face meeting, where possible) to better understand your requirements and how I can deliver value for you and your audience
  • Where appropriate, promotion of your event through my network and social media channels to amplify your publicity efforts
  • A unique and relevant talk, tailored specifically for your audience to make your event a tremendous success.

If you need an invigorating and educative speech to imbue your audience with wisdom and gusto, then let’s talk.
