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

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
