Keynote Speakers - world class keynote speakers

Dr Patrick Dixon: Future Strategy, Keynote Speaker - Futurist Keynote Speaker - Lectures and Slides

Video: conference keynote for 4,500 corporate event organisers - how to create world-class events. Read about secrets of all great conference keynote speakers. World-class conference keynote speakers are very rare. Awful keynote speakers are unfortunately very common and dreaded by conference participants everywhere. You can usually tell if a keynote speaker is going to shine in less than a couple of minutes. What makes a good keynote speaker?

With a great keynote speaker there's an immediate total emotional and mental connection, a stage presence, an energy which captivates, the whole auditorium lights up. Being a keynote speaker is not a logical or rational thing only. You can watch videos of keynote speakers and try to analyze style or content but there's something else going on. In fact videos are a very poor tool to capture the experience of being part of a live audience that is being "worked" by a pro. It's almost mystical - connection of one person with hundreds or thousands is primary characteristic of world-class keynote speakers.

Important information for event organisers

Dr Patrick Dixon: Future Strategy, Keynote Speaker - Futurist Keynote Speaker - Lectures and Slides

"Brilliant communicator who really cares about his audience and his clients"

Every presentation is customised after close discussion with event organisers, to create a high impact, entertaining, provocative, very interactive and relevant multimedia experience for audiences ranging from 20 to 3,000 - in 2D or spectacular 3D imaging. Dr Dixon tests opinion of each audience with "straw polls" and probes what they actually think themselves about future challenges, often walks around audiences and engages them personally.

Most presentations are opening keynotes, setting the scene for all that follows. Dr Dixon works hard to dig deep into organisational strategy and culture, with the help of each client, and aims to bring practical insights that are vitally important to the future of the corporation, taking into account everything else in the programme, and the priorities of the senior executive team.

There is an element of consultancy in most presentations: far more than an off-the-shelf standard lecture.

Organisers usually feel after working with Dr Dixon that they have found a friend: someone who understands the huge pressures they are under to make a great success of their event, and who is passionate about helping them make it happen. That is why he usually arrives the day before an event, offers to write articles, makes himself available for media interviews, signs every book that organisers buy to give participants (yes he has signed 1,400 for just one event), publishes his presentations online, makes conference videos available on / from his website, provides free access to 300 other presentations, and the entire text of 6 books and so on.

There is usually a strong focus on the future in every presentation, while also addressing urgent challenges facing the corporation / industry right now. There is a warm, practical, personal dimension, reflecting the fact that Dr Dixon first trained as a physician, looking also at what it means for individuals, families and friends, connecting with passion and ending with an inspiring challenge to make a difference.
