Motivational and keynote speaker Nigel Risner delivers messages about relationships in the workplace and embracing opportunities. His style is interactive and memorable; for example, his 'animal theory' places delegates into four communication styles—lion, elephant, monkey and dolphin—to explain how teams can benefit from the interplay between its different members.
A larger-than-life character who specialises in human development, Nigel Risner empowers individuals to play to their strengths and embrace opportunities in the workplace.
As a motivational and keynote speaker, he draws on real-life examples to guide professionals along the road to success, communicating his messages through lively and unusual sessions designed to teach clients at all levels how to boost self-esteem and make things happen.
His 'animal theory', expounded in his book ‘It’s a Zoo Around Here’, is particularly popular: delegates are categorised according to four communication styles—lion, elephant, monkey and dolphin—to demonstrate how teams can benefit from the interplay of its different members.
‘Learning should be an interactive experience’, chatters Nigel, who identifies as a monkey.
He also emphasises the difference between winners and losers - winners do the things that losers are too scared to do.
For Nigel, the achievement of success is simply a question of application—learning the techniques, putting them into practice on a regular basis, and having faith in yourself.
He has proven the power of these tenets in his own career: at only 26-years-old, he ran a successful finance company as one of the youngest CEOs in London.
He was also the former president of the London Chapter of Professional Speakers Association, has been voted Speaker of the year by the Academy of Chief Executives, and is a Companion of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.
His speaking topics include:
- People and relationships in the workplace
- No more excuses: believe in yourself
- Communication styles: are you a lion, elephant, monkey or dolphin?
- Winners vs. losers: take action
