Inspire your leaders

I have been leading companies for 25 years – my earliest challenges were to rebuild a broken Porsche brand and then to inspire the team at BMW GB to achieve a 500% improvement in profit while transforming the service levels of an industry. Since then I have founded start-ups, driven turnarounds and built companies in numerous sectors. Our teams have won awards and been recognised as some of the best in the world. They have also created over GBP 3 billion in shareholder value.

Sharing my passion for leading and fixing businesses as a keynote speaker is another challenge I relish; a speech needs to do much more than simply engage the audience - it needs to energise the audience to take action. Information is interesting; inspiration gets results.

If you want to give your audience a shot of pure inspiration, combined with a wholly practical approach, let’s talk.

The keynotes

Every speech is tailored to the client’s needs, but the most popular keynotes are:

Build a world class company

Drawing on my extensive experience as a business leader in good and bad times, I look at the significance of a clear vision, robust strategy and effective execution in this talk, along with the importance of aligning goals, building trust, and empowering individuals, to help transform and build world-class companies. Whether you need to build or reenergise an organisation, I will provide the approach and the tools.

Take advantage of disruption and turbulence

Overcoming a fear of disruption and change allows leaders to recognise opportunities, set goals and dare to dream. This speech highlights the significance of embracing turbulence as a lever for growth, shares the tools and processes used to inspire and motivate teams, instil a sense of purpose, and generate positive excitement in the face of uncertainty.

Be a successful post pandemic leader

The business world continues to grapple with the aftermath of the pandemic and ongoing turbulence. Consequently, leadership styles and processes have been forced to adapt to a more a trust-based approach, where employees feel valued and supported. I demonstrate how to adapt to post-pandemic operational and logistical challenges and inspire leaders to embrace this new reality.

Deliver effective digital transformation

To successfully navigate the ever-changing digital era, companies and employees need to be on guard and agile. This talk explores the importance of a clear vision for a companies’ digital journey, and the alignment of team activities in driving successful digital transformation initiatives.
