We also have a special guest in from the UK.

Jeremy Nicholas is an award-winning TV and radio broadcaster, well known for his news and sports reports for BBC TV and radio. He’s going to share with us tips on how to get serious laughs in serious talks.

He lives in London where he runs Talking Toolbox Ltd, which teaches communication in business, using techniques from over 30 years on TV and radio. Jeremy’s all about using stories to sell, how to make presentations interesting and how to use headlines, storyboards and bullet points to make reports more interesting. He works with companies on how to pitch for business, how to work out their core message and what structures to use to nail the delivery.

Jeremy works with individuals who want help creating, polishing or tickling their keynotes. (Crafting, making better or making funnier.) He offers one-off sessions or annual coaching programmes, specialising in professional (and often frankly unprofessional) speakers who want to nail the international conference circuit.

Jeremy’s an accomplished after-dinner speaker, especially when they want someone funny, but can’t afford someone really famous. In 2014 his career peaked when he hosted The Good Funeral Awards!

We look forward to seeing you there!
