Our focus is on meeting our clients' needs. We are not a speaker talent agency. We are an agency who acts solely on behalf of our clients and we review the whole spectrum of speakers to find the most appropriate for each brief. Below are just a few examples we have fulfilled in the last few months.
Global Investment Conference


The Brief
To build on the success of the first EMEA conference in 2013 with big-draw speakers whose expertise would suit an investment audience and the conference theme ‘Great Minds Don’t Think Alike’.

Speakers
Sir John Major, former Prime Minister UK and Ireland, and Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

Sir Tim’s participation was particularly pertinent as March 2014 marked the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web.
Allianz GI Client Forum


The Brief
To source a moderator, who could hold together the fund manager panels, and an expert on the Eurozone.

Speakers
Adam Posen, President of the Peterson Institute and Mishal Husain, the Today Programme Presenter.

We were on a tight budget, but we knew that Adam Posen (who works in Washington DC) was in London on a work trip at the time of our event, and so we managed to secure a very high-profile economist, who would normally be out of our budget range, for the right fee as he did not need to travel especially.
Standard Life Investment Summit


The Brief
To inspire and enthuse the senior salespeople, as well as impart fund and industry knowledge in an interesting way, over 2 days in early January. It was also important to have a fun but cost-effective dinner entertainment.

Speakers
Daniel Finkelstein, aas a moderator, Dr Steve Peters, author of The Chimp Paradox as a keynote speaker, and our own bespoke Comedy Club during dinner!

Danny enlivened the fund panels with his energy, as well as bringing a fresh dynamic to industry panels with his macro knowledge. Steve roused everyone over a working breakfast.
Joint Investment Conference


The Brief
Two heavy days of fund presentations to a small group of discretionary clients needed to be broken up with external insights. Most delegates have been to this event at least once before, so there is always a pressure to find new and interesting speakers.

Speakers
Ian Goldin, Director of the Oxford Martin 21st Century School and Mark Stevenson, author of The Optimist's Tour of the Future

Both Ian and Mark gave delegates different views of the future to think about and weigh up against the fund presentations. Ian opened the conference with an investment-relevant look at the next 10 years, while Mark spoke just before dinner and gave us insights into how the future will affect big global themes.
Fidelity FundsNetwork Investment Forum


The Brief
To fill the gap that had been left by Emily Maitlis, who had been a fabulous moderator in previous years but was unable to participate this year. With nearly 300 delegates and some of the City’s leading fund managers in attendance, a multi-dextrous replacement was required: who could act as an external moderator, panel host & MC.

Speaker
Natasha Kaplinsky

Natasha facilitated the proceedings perfectly, charming both the audience and panelists alike. She expertly handled some of the investment world’s most difficult subjects, helping shed light on some key themes and trends.
Gala Dinner, Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern.


The Brief
To put together spectacular entertainment to fill the vast space and fill in the gaps between courses at a dinner of nearly 400 people to celebrate the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.

Speakers
Ed Stafford, the first man to walk the Amazon, and Le Cirque, a bespoke group of circus acts including aerial acts.

Ed’s entertaining and action packed stories gripped the audience between starter and main. The evening culminated in a performance from Le Cirque, whose acrobatic skills left everyone speechless
Investment Solutions 2015


The Brief
To source a keynote speaker who was an expert on a long-term investment trend to add diversity to the main platform, and an entertainer for post-conference drinks, who would work in a cocktail reception environment.

Speakers
Moran Cerf, Professor of Neuroscience at the Kellogg School of Management, Joe Stilgoe, pianist and composer.

Moran fascinated the audience with his limitless behavioural knowledge, and was awarded a nigh on perfect score by the 150 strong audience. Joe performed some classic hits on the piano, and composing a bespoke song about the conference, especially for the delegates
Morningstar Dinner & Awards


The Brief
To find an after-dinner speaker, who could combine gravitas with a light touch, as well as hold a room of 400 people in celebration mode.

Speakers
John Simpson, the BBC’s Chief Foreign Affairs Commentator

John had so many stories of all different colours – inspiring tales, witty anecdotes and serious lessons - we could have listened to him for hours. His role as a witness to so many world-changing events is extraordinary
