ME SPEAKING AT A RECENT FULL DAY TRAINING IN BIRMINGHAM 2019 FOR 70 BUSINESS OWNERS.Below is a short video from that same event.

I have spoken in front of as many as 5000 attendees or to as small of 8 company directors and less. As far away as Sydney and back to my home country of Scotland. I have spoken for small new start-ups to multi-nationals of 8000 staff and more.

As a respected speaker I can offer you…

  • Keynote Speaker

  • Lecturer from 1-hour to full-day or more

  • Motivator

  • Trainer

Here is some feedback from a recent event in Birmingham, U.K where I worked with over 70 hair salon business owners. See the photo.

  • “INSPIRING” IK Hair Bromsgrove

  • “FANTASTIC” IK Hair Bromsgrove


  • “INSPIRING” Paul Hetherington, Le Biosthetique

  • “WHAT AN AMAZING DAY” Hairdresserstefan

  • “INSPIRATION” from THE SALON PUNK. Wicked Hair Worcester

  • “AWESOME” Karen Aldworth

  • “BRILLIANT” Val Hunt

I can speak on human behaviour in business, the latest marketing techniques and results, stories, motivating possability and more. I can also speak on any subject in any of my published books.


All of my talks are bespoke and take into account your circumstances and conditions. Below is a short clip from a talk I recently did just outside Tbilisi, in The Republic of Georgia for the 12 directors of an 8000 staff corporation specialising in import and distribution and haulage. The talk I created for them was a talk I named… I AM THE FUTURE. It was designed to help human understanding and show the team how their actions today create the future.

Here is another example of me training business owners to create and improve their very own direct marketing.

One student after attending this class went on to increase is business by £2.4 million in turnover. His initial impact was an increase of £42,000 in 12-hours after learning a new technique for harnessing the power of email.

Would you like me to train your team to increase your response rates?

Here is a lecture I did for around 300 business owners in London. I was asked if I could create a talk around response and creating effective and responsive advertising. That is exactly what I delivered.

Sorry about the quality of the filming.

Here’s My A Longer History of Public Speaking

As a trained speaker, I spent 21-years training at Bible school to lecture, speak and move people with thoughts as a fully trained ordained minister.

I have spoken at small conferences, large conferences of 5,000 plus, foreign speaking and translated conferences in The Republic of Georgia, Latvia, Singapore, Malaysia. These include large listed corporations, mid-sized middle management teams, CEO boardrooms, keynote speaker, team building and inspiring and as small as six persons in a new high street shop.

Regardless of the size, I guarantee your people will walk away inspired, provoked, called into action, thinking about new ideas. I can bespoke any of my talks to suit your people. My latest talk in the Republic of Georgia for a large 800 people corporation was entitled Building The Future Today (clip above).

I also boast over three decades running businesses since 1985, over two decades consulting businesses, heading major training masterclasses and one-on-one mentoring. I also boast some unusual strategies that have proven themselves time and time again.

Some Ancient ‘stage’ History

I first spoke on stage in 1978 while in my punk band Clone Youth. I then was asked to speak on stage in 1982 at a college in a speaking competition that I totally froze on! At one stage of my life, I was an ordained minister for 21 years. During that period I was a trained speaker to a depth that was probably unsurpassed. I spoke weekly during that period to hundreds.

From 1995 I spoke on stages to business owners mainly in the hairdressing industry as I was a salon owner and trainer at that time. From 2001 I began to get invites from all locations to come and speak to audiences. The first major event was in former Soviet state Latvia to over 1000 business owners in the hair and beauty industry.

In 2003 I had an invite to speak with Jay Abraham in London. From that one event, I began to get more and more invites to speak in different parts of the globe. Locations are below. At one stage I have spoken to groups as high as 5000 in one room.

I'd love to come and share what I know with your people.
