Creativity Speakers to Inspire in 2023

How can we drive creativity?

Our clients often come to us with this question and it’s a concern that seems more relevant than ever – after a turbulent year, bringing with it a host of new challenges, finding creative solutions is paramount.

We work with many keynote speakers who can reveal how to unleash our inner creativity and embed it into everyday practices.

Armando Iannucci

Writer, Producer, Director, Creator of The Thick Of It & Veep
Armando made his mark as the co-creator, writer and producer of Alan Partridge and the seminal On The Hour and The Day Today. He went on to win plaudits for The Thick Of It, introducing Malcolm Tucker to the world. After shining a sharp satirical light on Westminster, and taking both Partridge and Tucker (separately) to the big screen, he created the Emmy-winning hit HBO series, Veep. He also co-wrote and directed a boisterous comic take on Russian history with The Death of Stalin, and an unconventional Dickens adaptation, The Personal History of David Copperfield.

Duncan Wardle

Former Head of Innovation & Creativity, Disney
With a remit to work across all areas of the vast Disney business, Duncan surveyed all parts of the company including Imagineering, Lucasfilm, Pixar, ESPN and the Disney Parks, asking them about innovation. He led a team of ‘creative ideation consultants’ and ‘cultural change agents’ to bring about a change in how the whole company thought and worked. With examples like how a simple RFID chip in a wristband dramatically improved attendee numbers and satisfaction (and revenue) at Disney Parks, and the value of asking your own ‘naïve experts’ who challenge conventional wisdom, he makes abstract ideas real and accessible.

As a keynote speaker, Cassandra reveals how creativity has been central to the operational success of the company, as she asks: how can you stand out when going up against the giants?

Cally Beaton

Media Business Leader, Coach & Performer

As Senior Vice President at the US studio giant ViacomCBS, Cally oversaw multi-million-dollar budgets for brands including Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, and Paramount. Well-known for being a natural storyteller, Cally brings humour and energy to workplace insights ranging from how to foster a creative, positive environment to how to inspire and lead through change.

Rory Sutherland

Vice-Chairman, Ogilvy UK
One of the most respected creative thinkers in the ad industry, Ogilvy’s Vice-Chairman once suggested to Microsoft that they enable people to share office documents on the internet. The idea was dismissed but Rory has gone on to build a career out of the counter-intuitive and the original. As a keynote speaker, Rory examines why irrational thinking tends to win out.
