Keith always tailors his presentations in response to a client’s brief. Keith’s discussions are always very topical and audience-specific.

Keith’s presentations are created to help audiences make sense of the World.

His presentations can explore broad themes e.g. economic issues or country-specific e.g. China. They can also be issue-specific e.g. role of the media in shaping our understanding of the world.

Keith’s style is to:

1.  Blend a sense of history – “how we got here”?
2.  A sense of context – “what is actually happening now”?
3.  Speculation on what could happen in the future – encouraging people “to think about the unthinkable”.

Below are some of the core themes Keith can create presentations on, they  include:

“Preparing for the future”

Enlightens audiences on how they can make the most of the future. It examines techniques for:

1.  Prediction
2.  Creating a preferred version for a business or country and
3.  What could possibly happen which we are not yet seeing (scenario planning).


Looking at different leadership styles and new trends (such as the rise of the leaderless society), Keith also discusses characteristics of some of the leaders he has encountered over the decades.

“Corporate Governance”

Examines the new trends in how companies and organisations are now being run with a focus on creating a strong corporate governance mindset. He explains why this is valuable and the important role ethics plays in business today.
