A rare opportunity to hear from the man behind the speaker bureau that the International New York Times called the only global Speaker Bureau.
Tom Kenyon-Slaney co-founded London Speaker Bureau 25 years ago and has grown it from one office in London to 25 offices around the world. Now with a turnover of almost US$40 million it is by far the largest speaker bureau outside of North America and by far the most globally networked.
Today he joins me to talk about what he is hearing from his offices around the world as we work though the pandemic and what he thinks about the future for speakers and speaker bureaus and how they can support businesses and leaders.
Tom Kenyon-Slaney founded London Speaker Bureau in 1994, an international agency providing keynote speakers and boardroom advisors for corporations and governments around the world.
He was chairman of Save the Rhino from 2009 to 2013.
Tom is closely involved with several education and disaster relief organisations. He is the great grandson of William Kenyon-Slaney who scored the first international goal in association football on 8 March 1873 for England against Scotland.
In 1992, he walked solo across Spain, from La Coruna to Gibraltar, for Macmillan Cancer Support. In 1994, he walked from Mombasa, in Kenya to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, partly dressed as a rhinoceros for Save the Rhino.
