Motivational Speakers | After Dinner Speakers | Keynote Speakers | JLA Speaker Bureau - JLA

JLA is the UK's biggest specialist agency for keynote, motivational speakers and after dinner speakers, conference presenters, awards hosts and cabaret for corporate, industry and public sector events.

JLA’s Speakers Breakfasts give event organisers and producers a free opportunity to see speakers in action before making a booking. Each year we host a Spring and Autumn season to showcase motivators, trends experts and business leaders – as well as the latest ‘movers and shakers’ and exciting new names to join the circuit.


The Prospects For The Coalition

Tuesday 18th May was a special Speakers Breakfast for JLA as we were joined by a trio of heavyweights: Michael Portillo, David Blunkett and Paddy Ashdown - with Huw Edwards in the chair.

With the General Election outcome decided, the big question was 'what happens now?'' What are the first priorities for the PM? Should we expect more cross-party cooperation? What impact will over 150 new MPs have on the way politics is conducted? And after all the promises about the scale and timing of tax rises and public spending cuts, what's really in store for business and the public sector?

Portillo and Blunkett have held many of the key Cabinet posts - running Employment, Education, Defence and Work & Pensions. And whilst Blunkett was Home Secretary, Paddy Ashdown served as a UN High Representative - after eleven years as leader of the Liberal Democrats. Between them, they proved there are few speakers better equipped to offer insights into how the new administration will deal with the many and varied challenges looming on the horizon.

Josh Spear: Engaging The Digital Generation

Please join us for the next JLA Speakers Breakfast - on Tuesday 11th May at The Lansdowne Club, London. We will be joined by one of the most influential and inspiring digital strategists in the world: the 24-year old New York whiz-kid Josh Spear.
Josh advises household name brands on things like 'authenticity' and 'word-of-mouth.' His consultancy specialises in creating strategies for deeper, lasting online relationships, and acts as a think tank on the influence of technology on human behaviour. He also runs a blog to pinpoint new trends, with a network of writers across the planet. And for good measure, the World Economic Forum at Davos has named him a 'Young Global Leader.'

Josh will set out some new ways for organisations to harness the internet. He will give us his insight into what makes certain things catch on, and how to position products and services to capitalise on fast-moving trends. Above all, he will show how to get the attention of the digital generation - just like his good friend, the founder of Facebook.

Tea, coffee and croissants will be served from 8.30am. Josh will take the floor at 9.00, and after an opportunity for Q&A we are scheduled to finish by 10.00.

CLICK HERE TO REQUEST FREE TICKETS FOR 11th MAY. Please remember to include the name and company name of any guests, who must share a professional interest in booking speakers. You will then receive confirmation by email, including directions to the venue.
