News Speakers in the News: Our October Round-Up

Speakers in the News: Our October Round-Up

For a history graduate I’m always looking forward – tomorrow never dies right?

What started off as lovely autumnal sunshine ended in a cold snap. We've swapped sandals for slippers, plugged an extra kettle in and stocked up on our favourite cakes. Yes, winter is coming.

But that said, it's been a busy month, not just for us but our speakers too. 

And so here's a short, sharp round-up, of some key moments we thought we could share with you.

Premium is the New Black, a new book from Alan O'Neil, has recently hit the bookshelves. Alan, who addresses audiences on change management, has taking the lessons learnt from working with Selfridges, Dalata, Intel, Renault, St. Gobain, Sherry Fitzgerald and The UN (CTBTO) and turned them into compelling stories which you can refer back to time and time again in your quest to deliver the ultimate customer experience. 

In transport news, Nigel Risner caught the ferry to the Isle of Wight and once again turned his audience into zookeepers, Adam Kingl spent some time working with Deutsche Bahn, but Andrew Grill wins the award for using the most modes of transport, including his plane journey with our MD Nick Gold where they both attended the inVOYAGE luxury travel event.

On stage, we saw The Wonderful West End in action and Andrew Bird has been supporting Michael McIntyre at the O2. 

Hitting the airwaves was The Angel of Mostar, Sally Becker, interviewed on the Victoria Derbyshire Show, and Lucy Siegle was seen on our screens featuring in a fast fashion documentary presented by Stacey Dooley discussing the use of plastics in the industry. We were delighted to see JJ Chalmers presenting the Invictus Games coverage on BBC too!

Of course, no round-up wouldn't be complete without sharing who sat on our sofas this month too.

Matt Lindlay, former RAF and now commercial airline pilot, shared his experiences on leadership and diversity, and Rene Carayol showed us just what it takes to be a superlative leader in the 21st Century. 

Geoff White could have kept us enthralled for hours with his stories and thoughts on cyber-crime and AI, and Perry 'The Original Stig' McCarthy gave us our mid-morning energy boost with jokes and tales from the formula racing circuit!

We were wowed by Patrick Aryee's video clips of being submerged underwater inside a shark cage, and swimming alongside whales, and we became incredibly passionate about the environment now the wonderful Liz Bonnin has impressed upon us why we need to cut down on our use of plastics!

We also went out and about to see our speakers in action. We saw Dolly Alderton being interviewed at Theatre Bridge, Dara O'Briain in action at the Apollo Hammersmith, Kirsty Hulse discuss how to build an innovation culture at Search Love London,  Adam Shaw and Justin Urqurhart Stewart faciliate and present respectively at a 7IM event, and Lord Stern speak at the LSE on smarter cities.

And that, in just under 500 words or so, was our October!
