My speaking experience:
I am an accomplished public speaker, able to speak to large or intimate audiences. I prepare hard to make sure that people who hear me talk really gain something.
I can speak on a number of topics including influence, Board Diversity, youth empowerment, social entrepreneurship and social good careers.
Umesh Kumar- Advising corporates on innovation & startups
Alex and I have known each other for quite a few years now and he kindly accepted my invitation to participate on a panel discussing the role of entrepreneurship in the world we live in. His knowledge about the social enterprise sector but also startups generally was invaluable to our graduates who are looking to break into the industry. Alex is not only a wonderfully knowledgeable individual but a fantastic public speaker also. I was honoured to have such a well respected and approachable entrepreneur involved with our professional development event and I hope we can encourage him to attend one of our future speaking engagements.
Ella Fallows- Head of Political Intelligence at Lexington Communications
Alex is a great speaker, sharing his experience and offering brilliant advice with clear passion for what he does. He was incredibly well received by the audience and we had some fantastic feedback.
In addition some social media commentary on my speaking can be seen here and here.
Also there are some photos and comments from my speech at Gran Canaria Business Week at the start of 2016.
