Expert Speaking

Hire a keynote speaker or expert presenter for your event

Getting the right speaker, presenter, trainer or coach for your event, management meeting or workshops can be tough. What’s more, how do you know they really can deliver to the standard you need for your event? We understand that pain first-hand, having looked for a presenter many times over the years for our own events on topics we don’t cover. You would like reliable delivery of appropriate and applicable material from a world-class motivational presenter. You would also like to choose a keynote speech that fits in with your values and is appropriate in terms of its synchronicity with your culture.


“Our senior management team first heard David Oliver and the Insight team in Paris with 80 other accountants at an international convention. Their ability to present with passion and inspiration and their ability to combine online and offline marketing for proven results meant they were presenters of choice for our own MHA inaugural conference. I have no hesitation in recommending David Oliver and the Insight team for firms that are looking to grow.”
