When you are a Conference or Event Organisers looking an inspiring keynote speaker or experienced MC, you need to see more evidence that the speaker you’re researching is engaging on stage.
Having presented at Conferences in Australia, the United Kingdom, the USA, and Hong Kong, thankfully I have various video examples of my keynote presentations. Some of these represent my evolving style over more than 10 years, while in others you can see how I delivered a specific brief (in one case, as ‘Business Santa’).

134 Episodes, 2016-2019
In partnership with businessDEPOT, I produced and recorded 134 episodes of the business leadership video series Blackboard Fridays. Every short episode was designed as a 5 minute burst of insight into a specific topic relevant to succeeding on your business journey – two representative examples are included below.
London New Finance, 2011
Not every event nails it with the audio and lighting (the most recent LNF event I attended was in a much better venue than this!) In the middle of the double-dip Recession (aka the Global Financial Crisis) this was one of the most relevant topics I’ve been asked to speak on.
The businessDEPOT Christmas Spectacular, 2016
As the final speaker for the final event of the year, my brief was to communicate my core business message in a memorable way. Three years later, some of the attendees from this night still call me ‘Business Santa’.
The Property Management Leadership Summit, 2018
This panel discussion, including questions from the floor, ended the first day of the very successful 2018 Property Management Leadership Summit.
