Welcome to Autumn. So far it's been pretty interesting with UBER set to lose its licence in London, Monarch grounded and, in a slightly odd fashion, Theresa May handed her P45 at the Conservative Party conference!

As to Speaking Office, we welcome two new speakers to the roster - Rafe Offer and Conrad Humphreys - along with our very own new recruit - Max Miles-Thomas - who joins the team as an Agent's Assistant. 

Speaker News:

Anne-Marie Imafidon

So far its been a great 2017 for Head Stemette Anne-Marie. Not only has she been listed one of the BBC's 100 inspirational and innovative women for 2017, she has also been celebrated as a Marie Claire UK 2017 Future Shaper. In between, she spoke at the prestigious SXSW in Frankfurt and to clients including Lufthansa, ASOS and at FT Live.

Andrew Grill

The Practical Futurist hit the ground running in September with speaking engagements at the Dive In Festival in London and at Digital City in the North-East. Andrew will be taking his expertise in Digital Disruption to Cairo later this month before returning to the UK to deliver keynotes at Moore Stephens and the International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation.   

Nathalie Nahai

With the publication of the Second Edition of Webs of Influence behind her, Nathalie spent the Summer preparing for a busy Autumn. The Google Travel Executive Forum in Dublin, Webbdagarna in Gothenburg and Load.17 in Oslo have already been and gone. As to the rest of 2017, it will see her delivering her unique insight on Web Psychology at events in Ireland, London, Berlin and Vienna.

Hagai Segal

Global events over the past few months have been at the forefront of Hagai's keynotes and blogs. In particular, keynotes for CLSU in Singapore and Standard Chartered in Vietnam, have allowed him to consider and deliver content on the impact of the geo-political and strategic issues affecting companies, organisations and individuals worldwide.

Benita Matofska

The impact of the Sharing Economy in the U.K. and across the globe, has been a much talked about topic following July's Taylor Review of modern employment practices and UBER's difficulties in London. Benita's keynotes in Stockholm and Jakarta fell either side of these events, and provided a formidable insight into the current and future status of this growing economic sector.    

Hamish Taylor

Hamish and Indonesia became extremely well acquainted last month with back to back keynotes in Jakarta, before heading straight back to Europe for events in Milan, London and Amsterdam - luckily he wasn't flying Monarch or RyanAir. Added to this he has been nominated for a Scottish Enterprise Award for 2017 - so watch this space for further news!

Marianne Abib-Pech

Marianne finds herself switching hemispheres this month for a 3 week tour of Australia. Speaking to finance and management professionals at events in Brisbane, Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney will see her extol her thoughts and ideas surrounding How to lead effectively and get results.

Alexis Conran

Alexis' weekly Talk Radio show The Radio Hustle ensures he remains well abreast of the good, the bad and the ugly in the world of frauds and scams. Having delivered keynotes and hosted awards ceremonies in pretty much every city in the UK this year (including the Isle of Man) he has managed to keep companies and individuals on their toes as to what to look out for next!
