I believe even if you are using a powerpoint,
you can engage an audience, make them laugh and leave them utterly fulfilled.
I speak around the world on topics from leadership, entrepreneurship, investing to global politics.
Entertain : Engage: Inform : Wow
I'm fortunate enough to be called upon by Governments and Companies around the world to cover topics in which I am an expert, from entrepreneurship, technology to leadership. Recent events include South Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, India.
GLOBAL LAUNCHES OF TECHROCKET SHIPS FOR UK GOVERNMENT
India, South Korea
The UK Government's TechRocketShips programme brings the worlds fastest growth tech companies to the UK through a competition in their country of origin. I hosted several of these events and finals for the UK Government as a tech entrepreneur myself.
PALACE OF WESTMINSTER
Hosting Events in the Palace of Westminster
I have hosted dozens of these for both charities and causes I believe in. Given the venue, these are always special.
CHARITY AUCTIONS & FUNDRAISERS
I discovered a passion for auctions. They are hard work and getting it right it difficult, but from hosting at the Savoy for the Loomba Trust to Parliament for British Asian Trust or at Kensington Palace for Pratham - they're incredibly fulfilling way to raise more money than you could individually give.
DO YOU CHARGE?
I don't charge charities. But I focus on charities where my presence as compere or host or auctioneer will add at least an extra £5,000 to the proceedings which usually means an audience of 50 to 100 people.
WHAT ABOUT NON-CHARITIES
Generally, the professional costs I charge are around £1,000 per hour. But if it's a firm who is looking to use me for branding, and sales, then I need to vet the organisation and also the fees could be higher as it is only fair if they are making hundreds of thousands of pounds.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes, subject to my schedule and have given paid talks from Guatemala to Beijing.
