10 Best keynote speakers who would be a great addition to your event…

During a recent production meeting for a major UK brand, the subject of who should close their national conference came into conversation. Although our involvement in the meeting was to discuss their AV requirements, we soon realised that we have gained a lot of experience over the years working with guest speakers.

Without realising, we had soon mentioned 5 or 6 top presenters, and how successfully they had presented at our previous events.

We’ve worked with the good, the bad, and the indifferent. An A-list star doesn’t always guarantee a good presentation.

From inspiring personal challenges, to motivating business success stories, we’ve collated 10 of the best keynote speakers we have worked with who would be a great addition to your event.

So in no particular order, here’s our pick of the best…

  • Sir Clive Woodward OBE– Former English Rugby Union Player and Coach on winning the World Cup and performing as a team.
  • Gerald Ratner– A frank, humbling account of the demise of his high street empire in the 80’s to rock bottom following his infamous comments about the quality of their jewellery.

  • Hamish Taylor– Using his experiences at British Airways, Sainsburys Bank and Eurostar, Hamish explains the importance of different ways of thinking and branding.
  • Brad Burton– Brad’s brash approach is like a motivational rocket! By ‘Getting Off Your Arse‘, Brad helps you find that switch that says ‘I can do this’!

  • Richard McCann– Overcoming personal childhood tragedy to achieving his life goals. Inspirational stuff!
  • Tony Anderson– The original No.3 employee at easyJet, Tony talks about gorilla style marketing and all things orange.
