We've all been to a conference or two where the speaker fails to do anything to really connect with the audience and just rattles on. Sometimes it's a slog to even stay awake!

 

Whether it's 10 or 1000 people, if you are looking for something a little bit different, Nick is an experienced keynote speaker who can not only educate but also inspire your audience. He's delivered keynote speeches on digital innovation and customer centricity for some of the biggest brands in the world including Vodafone, GSK, Philip Morris International, Sony and Google. 

 

 

“Nick is a passionate aspirational and charismatic speaker. He was very well prepared and aware of his content and he presented in an engaging manner; connecting with the audience. His presentation was flawless and his slides were brilliantly selected. His professional experience in disruptive technologies built the necessary credibility and grabbed the audience’s attention. He managed to successfully deliver complicated topics, such as the impact of digital today and in the future; the influence of disruptive startups, across different industries and the need to constantly innovate, by applying the lean methodology”.

Director of Sales and Marketing - PMI Egypt

"Nick Villani has proven to be an extra asset in our GSK Marketing Ways programme.

 

Nick has shown by example how to facilitate, without expressing what was so good. He lets the audience experience what great facilitation looks like and makes sure everyone is continuously engaged. He keeps to the prepared structure but shows great flexibility where the group or the situation requires"
