Jeremy has been a CEO of global consumer brands and ecom-focused retailers, and has led a number of business transformations. In his talks he shares the secrets to success with the turnarounds of Pandora and Sainsbury's, how Coke Zero was invented and L’Oréal’s journey to market leadership in the UK.


With a career spanning iconic global companies including Coca-Cola, L’Oréal, The Body Shop, and Pandora, Jeremy Schwartz is an authority of informed leadership and empirical wisdom in the business world and offers a panoramic view of business dynamics across different sectors. His foresight led Jeremy to champion the integration of digital trends, recognising the transformative power of e-commerce, AI, and digital landscapes long before they became industry staples.

From unveiling the innovation behind products his team created such as Coke Zero, which has revenues exceeding $5bn, to sharing the transformative journeys of brands like Pandora and Sainsbury's, each adding over €5bn in shareholder value within two years, Jeremy provides a comprehensive view of the mechanics behind these monumental successes.

Jeremy's emphasis on digital realms is rooted in his first-hand experiences with evolving business models. He advocates for a holistic transformation that encompasses technology, business strategies, and corporate purpose led ethos. Jeremy explains how to create a strong digital strategy, making the most of big data and AI, while fostering an innovation-centric corporate culture that empowers rather than controls employees.

Equally important is Jeremy's commitment to sustainability. As the CEO of The Body Shop and Chairman of Kantar’s Sustainability and Diversity Transformation practice, he dives deep into sustainable business practices. He lays out practical roadmaps for engaging stakeholders, innovating sustainable products, and delivering ambitious environmental goals without compromising profitability, and navigates the tension between immediate financial goals and our sustainable obligations.

Jeremy’s speeches are full of insights, strategies and forward- thinking approaches. Drawing from the challenges he has navigated and his leadership roles, he demystifies the processes behind purpose-driven goals, rapid decision-making, and the nuances of digital transformation. Audiences are presented with stories of what he has learnt from his successes and his failures, and through Jeremy's interactive approach, are equipped with strategies and frameworks to thrive in the ever-evolving business landscape.

Outside of work Jeremy is an accomplished mountaineer and pushes the boundaries of courage, determination and resilience which can also be included in speeches. He is also a founding trustee for the Against Malaria Foundation which has raised $500m.
