PROFESSIONAL SPEAKER

Each year, I’m privileged to share my expertise at between 30 to 50 conferences and corporate events around the world.  I deliver engaging keynote addresses, facilitate masterclasses, and share insights on panels. I've been invited to speak to and moderate discussions amongst ministers and government officials, boards of directors, CEOs and senior business leaders, entrepreneurs, unionists, educators, engineers, lawyers, and more.

 

My sessions are often described as inspirational, insightful, and actionable. The messages I share, whether on the future of work, organisation transformation, corporate governance, leadership, or personal reinvention, are based on firsthand experience as a board director and CEO, my very own metamorphosis, plus hundreds of hours of research.

Equally comfortable in intimate settings and large-scale events, I tailor my approach for each specific audience in order to achieve your desired outcomes. Feel free to check out books, articles, and videos that provide a sampling of insights and thought leadership I've shared on a variety of topics.

Looking for an engaging speaker who understands your audience and business?

STAGE SPEECH

VIRTUAL SPEECH

 

VIRTUAL SPEAKER

Pre-Covid, my speaking engagements often involved getting on a plane to address audiences from Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore; to France, Qatar, Switzerland, Ukraine, and the United States. With travel now curtailed, many organisations are seeking speakers that can engage their audiences virtually.

 

I've had the pleasure of speaking virtually for Amgen, BioMerieux, INSEAD, Kearney, Robert Walters, Rockwell, SingTel, the Vietnam Institute of Directors, and World50, among others. I love incorporating activities that involve the audience, as you can see at one of my recent virtual engagements here.

My team and I also launched a virtual conference - The Reinventor's Roadmap Summit - which attracted ~1,500 registrants from nearly 60 countries. So I truly understand what it takes, both on the front end and the back end, to create an impactful virtual experience.

Would you like a speaker who can challenge your audience to think differently, and inspire them to achieve greater heights?

UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR

I have been a guest lecturer and visiting expert at programs and seminars conducted by universities in Asia, Europe, North America, and Latin America, including Yale, INSEAD, and Waseda University. I am also an adjunct professor of global leadership for the CEMS Master's in International Management at the National University of Singapore. 

 

Executive Education participants often describe my sessions as "stimulating", "engaging" and "thought-provoking", while my Masters students say their experience is "mind-blowing" and "life-changing". I focus on creating learning experiences that are based on an understanding of adult learning and which result in acquisition as well as application of knowledge and skills.

Your skillful facilitation resulted in a dynamic
discussion... as one of the Ministers put it,
there was "good energy" amongst the participants.
