As a corporate speaker, I have been on stages around the world since 2010 ranging from corporate briefing sessions to audiences over of 2,500.
I have delivered keynotes, facilitated workshops and chaired seminars on various topics including corporate effectiveness, intrapreneurship and leadership.
As a storytelling speaker, I have engaged with over 10,000 business professionals on four continents on such topics as “intrapreneurship 101“, “the integrated psychology of leadership“, “intrapreneur & entrepreneur ecosystems“, “ecosystem mapping“, “collaborative intelligence”, and “developing commercial mindsets“.
My speaking engagements have been as far afield as Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa – this has included speaking in Uganda on such subjects as ‘innovation in oil & gas’ as well as TV appearances in Ghana to discuss entrepreneurship in the country, appearing as a primary guest on a one-hour TV special on ‘innovation in oil & gas in Ghana’ and running business clinics in Dubai.
My corporate speaking has included:
- The Mouse Saves the Dinosaur – Intesa Sanpaolo (now Mercury Processing Services International), Croatia
- The Principles of Intrapreneurship – Banco Popular, Puerto Rico
- The Call for Commercial Awareness – Cherwell District Council, UK
My bespoke keynotes include:
- The case for intrapreneurship – going beyond the obsession with being innovative, how do we start, deliver and profit from it?
- Are you benefiting from mega-trends? – the world is going through huge changes – are you coping?
- Powerful Collaboration – whether it is a JV, a partnership, your supply chain or colleagues; collaboration is king.
- Boardroom Ethics – what does your ethical ecosystem look like – and what does ‘good ethics’ look like?
- The Intrapreneur Ecosystem – so you know that you want to be innovative – but what are the mechanics involved?
- Integrated Leadership – leader psychology is a crucial aspect of every employee – and it all begins from within.
- Communication Intelligence – how do we receive, process and transmit?
- Everyone is a leader – the key traits of great leaders are within everyone – ranging from areas for development through to signal strengths
I was privileged to work closely with Neil to bring about a magnificent learning experience to our guests in the first international organization development & leadership conference, in the MEA region and the Entrepreneurship hub event, few weeks ago. Neil was one of our key speakers in both events, and I was not only impressed with his capability of delivering a truly effective and memorable learning experience, but how beautifully he constructs and designs the whole experience to be enlightening, engaging and enjoyable. He is definitely an expert in his field and I used to think of him as a genius and highly innovative speaker. Working with Neil is an emblem for real partnership, and he is a true partner who is really keen on delivering value to you, your audience and your team.
Neil made a thought provoking presentation at the Compliance conference AIM Norway organized in Farris Bad. Not only it was excellent, but it was almost as if it was not a presentation but a real conversation. It left me enthusiastic about the discussions it brought up.
We invited Neil to deliver a workshop on intrapreneurial ecosystems and company culture and I must congratulate ourselves for this decision, the workshop was brilliant and a highlight of our Intrapreneurship Conference as per delegates feedback. It is a pleasure to work with Neil, and I hope we will have many more collaborations in the future.
Neil is one of the most charismatic and interesting people that I came across. He is one of the best presenters that I ever saw in action with a great ability to keep his audience engaged through his entire lecture/presentation. Neil is a pure leader, Intrapreneur and entrepreneur, always demonstrated out of the box thinking, business orientation, leadership and consistency.
I had an amazing experience when I attended the speech and the workshops that Neil gave in Cairo last month. But this is the least that could be said as he doesn’t hesitate to help you when you ask him or even if he knows you need something that you haven’t asked about. He has helped me and my partners to reach better grounds through his collaborative intelligence module which has helped us kick-start our own startup. He doesn’t just TALK about collaboration, he actively demonstrates it!
Organisation Development & Leadership
I met Neil the first time in the Organisation Development & Leadership Conference in Cairo. In person he is very attentive and very willing to help, he creates opportunities for growth for all the people around. I have personally learned a lot from his open selfless attitude. On a professional level his breadth of experience plays a great role in the customized solutions that he provides. I recommend Neil as a powerful consultant in the field of leadership and as an equipped speaker for leadership related topics.
I was lucky to meet Neil at 2 great events in Egypt in 2017 organized by MSA University; Leadership and Organization Development Conference and Entrepreneurship Hub. I was truly impressed by his intense knowledge and interesting way of delivery. During the panel discussion, his success story was an inspiration for our young entrepreneurs and his profound experience is something to surely learn from. I’m definitely looking forward to another fruitful co-operation.
I had the chance to meet a really impressing speaker yesterday who is a walking treasure of experience and knowledge about intrapreneurship and organizational change, how to transform organizational dinosaurs and arouse the entrepreneur within employees. Neil has totally owned the stage and after his talk I was full of thoughts, ideas. Neil made a big impression and I am admiring him for what he did/is doing, what he knows and for his openness to share that experience and knowledge. I am looking forward to future cooperation with him. Unicorns do exist! 😉
