Brendan Hall

Are your conference attendees facing the headwinds of change & uncertainty in their organisations?

I’ve been there – out at sea, facing overwhelming uncertainty and  I can help.

My conference keynote equips your attendees with three key behaviours that will make the change journey smoother, faster and more engaging, in their organisations.

I deliver an edge-of-the-seat experience that blends gripping, emotive story-telling with current research and immediately applicable take-aways.

Great Feedback

Brendan’s content added so much value to our members experience. We have had nothing but great feedback.

Calls-to-Action For Your Conference Attendees


Building and maintaining trust is key to successfully navigating change. If a leader has no trust, they have no mandate.



Leaders need to actively invite feedback – saying “my door is always open”, or waiting for an annual 360 is not enough.


Squash Blame Culture

Only use blame in the event of gross negligence or malice – everything else is a learning opportunity.


Mature leaders create a culture of psychological ownership and strive to change from a heroic to servant leadership approach.

Create a Space

When executing change, the sound of success is honest conversation. It’s the leader’s job to create a fear-free space for it to happen.

A compelling take on leadership in a changing world, told by a consummate story-teller.

Inspiration has a short shelf-life without application.

I believe that the leaders at the 50+ corporate conference events I speak at each year should walk away with specific, concrete ideas they can immediately implement.

My keynote focuses on actionable practices and calls to action that will improve leadership, create better team cultures and drive higher engagement.

What to expect when you work with me


Absolute reliability

I am never late, forget to return a call or miss a deadline.


Trusted to deliver

For a conference organiser, hiring a new speaker is a risk. If that speaker fails to connect with the audience, it reflects badly on them.

I get it.

Through the whole process, my aim is that you feel confident, relaxed and post-event, get positively recognised for your good choice in selecting me. In short- it’s part of my job is to make you look awesome.


Customised for you

During a detailed briefing call, I seek to understand your conference aims, the audience demographic and the challenges of their industry.

My first question is ‘What would want the audience to know, feel or do differently as a result of my speech?’ I reverse engineer it with that end in mind.

Brilliant feedback

His style, approach and engagement had everyone gripped. The feedback has been brilliant.


Calls to ACtion

Every speech is not just inspirational, but also immediately applicable. I believe that action creates change, not inspiration alone.


Value for money

Hiring a speaker isn’t cheap and I understand the need for an observable behavioural-RoI. Client feedback, three-months post-event tell me that they see a qualitative RoI in better leadership behaviours and heightened collaboration.
