René inspires audiences with his dynamic presentations and shows precisely how contemporary leaders can inspire their people through a powerful and authentic emotional connection, to do the things that others said could not be done
As well as one of the world’s leading executive coaches, working with some of the Fortune 500’s top CEO’s and their executive teams, René inspires audiences drawing from his own unique experiences on the boards of international organisations; from Marks and Spencer and Pepsi, to IPC Media and the Inland Revenue. He speaks with the authority and confidence of the expert practitioner who has seen and experienced it all before.
His messages are practical, real life experiences delivered with electrifying effect. He both shakes up and inspires his audiences by showing them not only what lies within their grasp, but how true collaboration makes everyone stronger.
As the business world moves out of a sustained period of austerity, René specialises in helping many blue chip businesses chart a path for growth and a culture of enterprise. René tailors each keynote to fit the actual challenges or opportunities faced by his clients – embracing regional differences and cultural nuances learned from his years of experience working across the globe.
A regular expert commentator on BBC News and Sky News, René has had the privilege of working closely with some of the world’s best leaders, from former US President Bill Clinton to CEOs of blue chip businesses, including Jim Yong Kim at TheWorld Bank, Ralph Hamers at ING Bank, Mario Greco at Generali and Maria Ramos at Barclays Africa.
With the ability to speak with conviction and authority on leadership, business transformation, collaboration, corporate culture, talent and HR, and innovation and creativity, René is an ideal conference facilitator or keynote speaker for all kinds of events.
