An Interview With Steve Leonard
Why should an organizer hire you to speak at their event?
I believe a good speech should be passionate but laced with humour. I want people to feel good about themselves and want to be part of a solution. I love talking to people.
What was your first speaking engagement?
I think it was to a young farmers group in Lancashire as a newly qualified vet. They were painfully shy and wouldn't answer any of my questions. One young lad was convinced that lobsters were the most dangerous animal in Africa.
Which event has been your favorite and why?
Some talks just fly. If the audience is of a similar perspective it helps. I did a talk at Chester Zoo for FFI (Flora Fauna International) where there was just a lovely atmosphere. I had a 72-year-old gentleman come up at the end and tell me it was the most entertaining evening he had ever attended, which blew me away.
If you could speak at any event, past or future, what would it be?
My own funeral.
Which speaker/performer do you most admire and why?
My Mother. As she would say “she’s full of wee wiseys”.
What annoys you most professionally?
