An invitation to deliver a keynote address is a tremendous honor to virtually any speaker, from a seasoned professional to someone with little or no professional speaking resume. It symbolizes a perception that an individual’s achievements and reputation are synonymous with some set of overarching progressive goals and principles passionately valued by a like-minded organization. Simply having one’s presence requested in such a capacity can significantly validate the values a speaker strives to inspire belief in by conveying the message, “You wield the influence to light an uncommon fire beneath both strangers and your peers alike. You could lead us […]

As a professional keynote speaker, my presentations contain a myriad of real-world examples of ideas I’ve brought to life (and the lessons learned from doing so) to show how blue chip companies, organisations and entrepreneurs can implement innovation, creativity and left-field marketing in order to achieve wondrous success. There’s nothing more fulfilling and exciting than watching an idea from your mind come to life in glorious reality, and then it’s even more thrilling if that idea then engages with people, entertains them or even (on the rare occasion!) brings in revenue. Well, maybe there’s a couple of things that come […]

I’m hugely excited to appear on the bill of Brand Minds Asia with a raft of impressive professional speakers and keynote speaker, Gary Vaynerchuk. Wooop!

So it’s taken about […]

Call me presumptuous, but I tend to believe few people set out immediately after high school on linear single-minded tracks toward careers as motivational speakers. Great speakers infuse their messages with an organic passion and urgency that isn’t born within a classroom. You might set your tinder to a timely spark of inspiration that catches your eye amidst the throes of academia, but no audience will catch fire on your words without the lingering natural smolder upon their edges of a trial or two by fire. Professors and self-help gurus and Toastmasters chapter meetings can engage you in the performance […]

A Motivational Speaker In Austin, Texas… I felt enormously privileged and excited to be invited to present a keynote speech at ILEA’s annual conference in Austin, Texas.

As you can imagine, when they put on a conference, it’s quite something! Not only did the talented team of event planners from ILEA put on a stimulating and thought-provoking array of inspirational and industry relevant speakers, they also threw three spectacular parties, each one carefully themed […]

A Motivational Speaker in London… by Shed Simove I feel incredibly fortunate to have spoken at two BLUE CHIP companies in London this week. When you’re invited to speak at a company’s conference, it’s such a massive privilege to be welcomed in to an organisation’s inner sanctum, often where they share sensitive information about their company and to meet not only the top brass, but also the VIP Teams that make the company thrive. Therefore, there’s an even greater onus on a keynote speaker like myself to do the company proud. In my humble (!) opinion, after many years on […]
