Leadership Speakers

Leadership has always been open to widely varied interpretations. As leadership expert Alan Chapman states, we can find leadership in every sort of work and play, and in every sort of adventure and project, regardless of scale, and regardless of financial or official authority.

Our leadership speakers come from varied backgrounds. They are from the corporate world – CEOs, entrepreneurs, business owners, politicians. They are athletes, media and entertainment experts. Our speakers may discuss the subject as a behaviour, a philosophy or a model. They may provide actionable takeaways from their presentation that are motivational or inspirational in nature. They draw on personal experience, failures and achievements of themselves and others to deliver their message and connect with the audience in a relatable way.

As Australia’s premier Speakers Bureau we can advise on which leadership speakers are available, and which of those speakers receive excellent feedback for your specific event themes. Discover a leadership speaker with great insight and experience, one that will set the right tone. To receive a comprehensive brief on the right speaker for your event, talk to one of our expert consultants on 1300 884 485 (intl: +612 9518 3944) today. Read more…
