Most popular keynote & workshop brochures - please note - I essentially provide 2 "types" of keynote across a range of topics delivered in either a "What" or a "How"style:-

Turbulent Times - is an example of a "What is going on" style keynote covering current technology and consumer trends - content and narrative is continually updated through ongoing Research and Horizon Scanning activities - PDF

Igniting Innovation - is an example of a "How to be more innovative" style keynote based on a unique metaphor (not a methodology or a framework) of my own making based on over 30 years experience - this is an inspirational and motivational keynote - PDF

Strategic Storytelling - this is a hands-on / audience participation "How" workshop session that teaches and applies a valuable skill used extensively for envisioning futures, ideation, strategy, product development, service improvement, sales pitching and many many more areas - PDF

Full day Innovation Masterclass - this includes both the Igniting Innovation and the Strategic Storytelling sessions above plus further modules covering Horizon Scanning and Opportunity Mapping  (link to product page here)

Speaking locations - I will take on speaking engagements in pretty much any location in the world on 2 conditions:-

a) I can get a Visa - I have a full British passport - no dual / multi-nationality.

b) I can get paid - I have had to decline certain locations as they were unable to figure out how to pay my fee other than a bag of cash ........ which would have been VERY unsafe in those particular locations and raised too many eyebrows on my return to the UK!!
