Keynote Speaking…

Ray Hammond

Keynotes, Presentations and Workshops

Ray Hammond provides keynote speeches and plenary presentations at conferences organized by the world’s leading companies, universities and governments.

His inspirational and riveting speaking style – coupled with his long experience of public speaking – ensures companies are happy to trust him with even the largest and most important audiences.

At ease with audiences of any size, Ray describes himself as being “at home” on a stage.  He normally speaks without slides, notes or any other form of visual aid.

Ray presents in English, but with long, world-wide experience of speaking to audiences for whom English is a second language, he has developed a speaking style that is clear, jargon-free and easy to understand by those whose understanding of English may be limited.  When required, Ray is happy to use slides to provide audiences with visual re-enforcement.

Workshops and Seminars

On request, Ray will also write and deliver specially-tailored seminars and workshops on a wide variety of future topics.
Typically lasting half-a-day, Ray’s recent workshop topics have included:

  • DIGITAL DISRUPTION: CHANGING CUSTOMER EXPECTATIONS
  • UNDERSTANDING GOVERNMENT DIGITAL DELIVERY
  • THE IMPACT OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY ON HEALTHCARE
  • THE ROLE OF CLEAN TECH IN THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORT
  • ROBOTS, AI AND THE FUTURE OF WORK AND EMPLOYMENT

What Clients Say…

I listened with great interest to Ray Hammond earlier and I made a note of the seven key drivers of the future he has identified. (Jack Welch pulls a handwritten list from his pocket and shows the audience.) “I am speaking in New York tomorrow and I intend to steal all seven of Ray’s drivers for that speech – and for all the speeches I make after that.”   Jack Welch, ex CEO of General Electric, speaking at the IS Summit, Copenhagen
