In his early career Geoff was often thought of as a disruptive influence; today they say ‘change agent’. In Self Made Me he considers how virtually any SME can be successful – even in troubled times. Slaying a sacred cow or two in a very entertaining speech, he believes we’ve had enough of ‘soaring with eagles’. Geoff provides empirical data, hard facts to convert into improving the business: “Finding and keeping customers is the only activity that matters.”

Tim left his job at London Underground to take part in The Apprentice, and went on to work for Alan Sugar for three years.

René is an associate of Cass, a former Non-Executive Director of the Inland Revenue, chair of Leaders in London and author of Corporate Voodoo.

On the track Seb’s talent and commitment earned eleven world records and two Olympic gold medals; he has since led the most successful Games in recent history.

In speeches he shares the lessons as an athlete and as a leader delivering a vision, managing crisis and bringing about change.

In speeches Fraser extols social enterprise and telling your own story, explains his approach to product development and innovation, and shows how to turn ordinary into extraordinary.

Kevin headed UK operations for Porsche and BMW, before launching a software business, heading a fintech operation, and taking over the helm at a luxury boatbuilder. He has also walked to both Poles with Alan Chambers and climbed the highest peaks in the world. Kevin sets out simple rules: have a dream, define your purpose, write the plan, apply it with consistency and allow yourself to become obsessed with winning. He sees the leader’s job as creating more leaders.

Bob has inspired hundreds of projects across Africa and ensures it remains on the political agenda and in the public consciousness. In a rousing speech on social responsibility, Bob reminds us that we are all defined by what we do, not what we say. This isn’t confined to philanthropy. He might also confess to some pride at the thought of becoming the first Irishman (and the first genuine rock star) in space.

She believes that disabled people still face barriers that need to be removed, and calls for more genuine engagement rather than political rhetoric: “Public perceptions are changing.”
