Why MOST CEO SPEECHES don't create passion or purpose. Here's example of a PURPOSE linked speech - for a hypothetical company in an industry which is often criticised in the media. Leadership Keynote Speaker

I have listened to a huge number of CEO speeches over the years to their global teams at major events, and there is often a problem.

The same for Finance Directors. I was once about to start a leadership programme at one of the world's best known Business Schools and the session immediately before me, to introduce the week, was led by the Finance Director.  Just before he entered the room, we had 40 highly energised, highly motivated people, bursting with energy, ideas, initiative and passion.  

As that Finance Director began to speak, the energy drained right out of the room. Within a couple of minutes he had lost the audience, many of whom were doing things like emails, WhatsApping friends or researching their next holiday online.  It was awful and embarrassing.... 

So here's another approach in the video above. It's an unscripted 3 minute piece I did without any rehearsals, quite spontaneously, in the middle of a one hour keynote to 4,500 people on how to create highly engaging corporate events. Just to make a point. Tailored for an imaginary global Insurance company - that industry is often attacked in the media by customers for being slow in paying their claims, and fast in making profits.

Interview 22 September 2022 following keynote on the future of the life insurance industry for Equisoft in Las Vegas

As one of the world's leading Futurists, I have worked with many of the world's largest insurance companies, companies like Aviva, Prudential, Munich Re and Swiss Re, advising them on a wide variety of global trends, giving keynotes on the future of Life Insurance and many other related issues at their most important global events.

Key issues include these: How will the Life Insurance market change across the world? What is the future of Life Insurance agents, with rapid grow in mobile applications and instant automated underwriting?  How can we improve the application process? How can we expand rapidly in new regions? What about future changes in life expectancy?  

One thing is certain:

Life Insurance will see huge growth globally over the next three decades for a number of reasons....

Queen Elizabeth II: the power of example over a lifetime. Lessons for all great leaders. Why her impact on our future world will be so long lasting. Example is the only form of leadership that endures, because it is based on integrity and authenticity

The impact of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, and of her leadership example, will be very long lasting, because she became one of the most trusted and respected figureheads on the world stage, as well as in her own nation. Her life was rooted in a deep sense of public duty, and a commitment to a life of public service, which was forced upon her by circumstance.

Hundreds of millions of words have already been written about her life, but the most powerful perhaps were spoken....

Future HR trends, workplace, working from home, office occupancy, motivation, recruitment and leadership. How to form the most effective teams and why most change management programmes fail - HR keynote speaker interview

Interview with InBusiness Magazine in Turkey:

What major HR trends do you see at the moment? This is a very confusing time for business leaders and HR directors, with chaos in energy markets related to Russia, disruptions in supply chains, huge inflation, ongoing impact of COVID and many other factors. What will all this mean for the future of people management, talent acquisition, leadership development, workplace motivation, home working, virtual teams and career development? In my book The Future of Almost Everything, I warned in 2019 about a possible new viral pandemic, about the risk of Russia taking military action in response to fears of NATO expansion, and wrote that oil prices could reach $145. I always say that the world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting, so HR leaders need more than one strategy.  We need to have backup plans for all important things in the business. This is fundamental to risk management and agility, especially in Human Resource Management....

Energy as a national security strategy. Added incentives to go green. Futurist view of Future of the energy industry, oil, gas, coal, solar and wind in a post-COVID world impacted by regional conflict

What is the outlook for the energy industry for the next decade?  I have advised many of the largest green energy companies and traditional energy companies on the future. 


In “The Future of Almost Everything” published in 2019, I warned that unstable prices would create a lot of chaos in future for energy companies, and I was right.  Energy forecasts always have to be seen in the context of the global economy, geopolitics, technology, innovation, urbanisation, migration and social transformation.  I wrote in 2019 that we would be likely to see unstable oil prices with all kinds of supply and demand shocks, and prices ranging from above $180 to below $40. Just so. 


And I also wrote that these price convulsions would drive many green energy companies out of business, which is what is already happening...
