Guest Speaker

Nigel Barlow

As one of the world’s most dynamic business speakers, Nigel Barlow has a long list of businesses on his CV such as Lloyds Bank, KPMG, the John Lewis Partnership, Argos, J Sainsbury, Legal & General and GlaxoSmithKline. With the success of his session at JDE15 its easy to see how he has such an incredible portfolio of customers wanting him to preach his business knowledge.

An engaging, charismatic and confident speaker, Nigel's ability to entertain and engage the audience combined with his way with words and ability to flow from topic to topic made for a refreshing, comical and though provoking presentation.

His presentation "Innovation for You and your Business" gave the audience 13 ways in which they can increase innovation in business, focusing on stereotypes, how to overcome that ever so common phrase "yes, but" as well as how to encourage innovation and change within yourself as well as your professional lives. With the odd joke thrown in along the way, Nigel provided food for thought and delivered a relatable and unmissable session - if you didn't attend it, you really did miss out! 

As well as being an incredible public speaker, Nigel was a founding director of the Tom Peters consulting business in Europe and now runs his own international consultancy. Until recently he was an Associate Fellow at the Saïd Business School focusing on Innovative Change. Keynote presentations, strategic offsites, and organizational transformation projects are the basis of his work.
