Through his conference and keynote speeches captivates, Brian Paddick challenges and informs his audiences. He has a wealth of experience to share - and a naturally engaging personality. 

Serving in the Police Force

Having served on the front line of the Brixton riots, Brian Paddick attracted national attention when he returned to the area some years later as Borough Commander.  Amidst a great deal of media scrutiny, he earned unprecedented community support and was subsequently promoted to Deputy Assistant Commissioner. Brian has since exercised day-to-day responsibility for 20,000 Metropolitan police officers and staff across the capital.

As the official spokesman during the London bombings in 2005, Brian Paddick’s leadership brought tributes from around the world.  The most senior openly gay officer, Brian has used his authority to challenge the Met’s prevailing culture. His integrity, his often innovative policies and his frankness has won the backing both of his staff and the public they serve - but sometimes brought him into conflict with his bosses.

Business and Leadership Knowledge

Brian combines the academic rigour of an Oxford degree and an MBA from Warwick Business School with real experience on the ground. He speaks from a pragmatic, rather than a moral standpoint. As a man who succeeded in an organisation in which he did not easily fit, Brian defines leadership simply as ‘getting people to want to do what you want them to do.’ He also highlights the competitive advantages for any employer in public or private sectors in attracting employees and customers from the whole diverse spectrum of communities.

Humour and Celebrity Life

On a lighter note, Brian reflects on being the only policeman to be invited to Elton John’s civil partnership celebration, successfully suing a tabloid for splashing false allegations about his private life, and what it would be like to live in a world without politicians.
