Great keynote speeches excite curiosity, break the ice, animate the mind, touch the heart, tickle the funny bone, and seed great ideas for future discussion. They can make or break a conference. My speeches are intellectually provocative and deliver usable insights. They feature stories from the today's most admired companies (Google, IBM, Shell) and are peppered with the latest scientific research, and insights from great philosophers and today's scientists. They come alive through stories from my 35 years at the coal-face in business - as a derivatives trader, strategy consultant to the world's most admired companies, change expert on multi-million dollar programs, and entrepreneur. I love the challenge of preparing each talk to fit in with the audience’s passion and learning goals, and can often tailor fees to match clients’ budgets. Please ask about a small number pro bono talks to select nonprofits.
