Type Of Speaker


I’ve just seen the evaluation for the LGcomms conference. It was a hugely successful event, but I was particularly struck by the fact that your session scored 92% (useful, very useful), which is very impressive and testament to your speaking style and substantial content.

– Alex Aiken, Secretary LGcomms.

I write to thank you for taking time out for our annual HR Summit. Your valuable insights and interaction with the delegates has raised the bar several notches of this year’s edition and my team would strive hard to keep the flag flying.
The topic on “Entrepreneurial Leadership – new way of working to drive success” was one of great importance in current environment. The keynote was very interactive and audience didn’t want it to end. This speaks very highly of the session composition and the insights that came out.

– Som Mittal, PRESIDENT NASSCOM HR Conference, Chennai, India

With an audience of nearly 75 highly experienced Human Resources Directors and leaders it was vital to have a Chairman for the day with both the experience and gravitas to be credible. Chris not only met but exceeded this challenge. He delivered an excellent opening keynote that pushed the audience thinking on key issues for the future of the profession and then kept the day running to time concluding with a call to action that sent the audience away energised. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional and inspiring Chairman.

– Dan Brimble, Conference Director. HR Leadership Conference, London

Chris came highly recommended to us as a speaker who would be able to address the topic of leadership which we had identified as a critical issue for retailers in this period of unprecedented change. He more than delivered on this by fully engaging with our delegates and led an important panel discussion on the main stage. His keynote address however was outstanding in pulling together all the strands from the Congress and setting out clearly some takeaway points that were extremely relevant, thought-provoking and helpful to all of the retail leaders in the audience.

– Ian McGarrigle, Chairman, World Retail Congress

The webinar was incredibly well received by everyone. Many senior managers contacted me immediately pledging to action their learning. Chris was clear, crisp with a superb flow throughout the session. I am grateful for such a wonderful session and so is the rest of Tata Communications.



Chris, I enjoyed your incredibly inspiring seminar at the UK Defence Academy which I continue to use as inspiration for leading my own high performing teams at sea. Tomorrow I am using it as inspiration for a workshop with officers and senior NCOs. We are on operations on the other side of the world for 10 months far from home and on strategic tasking – leading and inspiring people could not be more important.
