An engaging and challenging 32-year-old public speaker for business and non-profits.
Alex is the speaker organisations book when they need incisive, not trendy - when an audience has tired of hearing the same canned messages - when people's brains need reigniting.
Why is Alex different? His focus is on eschewing saccharin, predictable motivational themes and replacing them with realistic concepts and productive thinking-points. The aim is for his audience to consider issues from a different point of view and then take clarity back into their work lives.
'Excellent delivery ad lib... still talked about as “the high point of our away day”. Feedback was so positive that it has extended to other parts of the business globally (in the UK and the US).' - Senior Performance Manager, Rolls-Royce Deutschland
'Captivating. Alex's keynote address at our RBC Dexia Trek for Hope Gala was a highlight of the evening. He provided a witty and engaging account...which both amazed and enthralled the room.' - Anthony Johnson, Global Head of Sales & Relationship Management, Royal Bank of Canada
'I found Alex to be a brilliant motivational speaker, would highly recommend. He was able to fit our brief perfectly. Great to work with.' - Sophie Whitelock, Grant Thornton UK LLP
'To describe Alex's public speaking as motivational would be an under-statement. Matter-of-fact, understated manner - he manages to make the subject accessible and personal.' - Gary Marshall, Head of Americas, Aberdeen Asset Management
'Your workshop was the highest scoring of the event.' - Feedback from the PIMS International
Topics for presentations are entirely bespoke but can include:
• Using stark reality as a platform - simplifying the path forward without the distractions of wishful thinking or delusion.
• Alex's novel concept of 'coping headroom' to avoid chaos under pressure
• Dealing with risk and forced change in fast-moving situations
• Team selection and making relationships work under stressful conditions
• Developing professional credibility as a young leader
