Lee is a popular motivational speaker who helps leaders and managers to 'Get Good' in the workplace.
Having worked in the voluntary, public and private sectors over the years he now works in businesses and education helping people to 'Get Good' in challenging times. He was the 2017 President of the Professional Speaking Association in the UK & Ireland.

Unlike many speakers, he loves the graveyard slot after lunch! No jargon, nothing over-complicated, just the good stuff that changes people’s lives, build resilience and increases profit.

What the clients say:
“Lee has worked with us as a presentation consultant to make our nation-wide communications meetings the best they can be. There were some great conclusions from his consultation work. The main change has been that we are weaning the presenters off wordy slides and the presenters are now being challenged to learn their script. He was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable on presentation skills and PowerPoint/slide design. We look forward to working with him again.”
Director of Retail Communications at Specsavers Optical Group
“It’s amazing how many people in business use PowerPoint without having a clue how to use it. As such, it has a really bad reputation and a bad name. Enter Lee Jackson...here’s someone who knows how to use it...PROPERLY, and how to interact with it. He knows how to get the most out of it, and how both designers and delivers can use it as it was meant to and in doing so, deliver messages that are attractive enough for people to engage with.”

On the same platform as Sir Trevor Phillips, Lee produced one of the most insightful, thought provoking and humorous presentations I had seen in some time. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for future events.

Upon hearing the word ‘presentation’ my eyes usually close. But this was not the case during Lee’s presentation, during which the 45 minutes’ of tips, advice and interactivity flew by. A very enjoyable experience. Thank You!

“If you are looking for someone to help staff with their presentation skills Lee is your man. He has worked with our Senior Management Team and Operational Managers to hone their skills in delivering interesting, well-presented, lively presentations (no death by power point here). I would also recommend Lee as an inspirational speaker if you are looking for someone to engage with and motivate your staff – down to earth, pragmatic and really hits the heart of the matter.”
Head of Corporate Services at Leeds Federated Housing
“Lee went to great lengths to understand our business and the outcomes we strived. He then used creative and innovative ways to update our thinking with presentations and messaging. The time we spent with Lee delivered some immediate value outcomes with presentations and helped us understand a firm philosophy which we’ll continue to build from. Since then I have seen improved client feedback and no doubt it has contributed to our businesses upward growth”
