Speaking and Hosting

“It’s not the world that needs to change – it’s our consciousness we must raise.”
– Rasheed Ogunlaru

Looking for a first class speaker or seminar leader?

I deliver inspiring and transformational talks, seminars and workshops at corporate, business, charity and public events.

I’m most often asked to deliver at conferences, team awaydays, exhibitions, shows and at universities – either as stand alone ‘special’ or as part of your event programme. I’m also host or chair events by request.

As a seasoned speaker with a background in media, interviewing and entertainment I’m also asked to be the ‘motivational host’ at events or to chair/ interview guest on panel discussions. I also occasionally run bespoke corporate retreats on request*. All talks and sessions are tailored to your needs.

The range of events I’m asked to speak at vary from addressing staff & management development days, speaking at Global Entrepreneurship events, speaking at shows and exhibitions through to Black History Month talks and much more.


I specialise in speaking on issues that relate to finding lasting fulfilment in life, career, business and relationships – from within. I also speak on key topics such as authentic / effective leadership in oneself, in business and in organisations.

Recently I’ve also been giving a range of talks and seminars based on my popular book ‘Soul Trader – Putting the Heart Back into Your Business.’

In the promo above you can see clips of me delivering talks at conferences, shows, Business Schools, chairing discussions and on BBC and ITN News to help give you a flavour of my approach and style. You can also find a menu of some of the talks, seminars and workshops I run, but almost every talk is delivered tailored to your audience.
