Our keynote speaker Frances Edmonds is a presenter, best-selling author, and expert on cross-cultural communication. A modern linguist, she has extensive experience from radio and television, and a reputation for being both entertaining and clever. Her academic background, combined with her unrivalled broadcasting, communication, and professional speaking qualifications, make her an ideal choice for a conference host or moderator. 

Frances Edmonds is an acknowledged expert in the field of cross-cultural communication and a best-selling author. She specialises in working with multicultural and multinational organisations as both a keynote speaker and moderator. An engaging, inspirational, and humorous presenter, she has been voted Britain’s most entertaining female after-dinner speaker in a recent survey by The Times.

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Modern Languages from Cambridge University, Frances Edmonds joined the Commission of the European Union in Brussels as an international conference interpreter. For more than a decade, she worked to facilitate cooperation and communication within all the major international organisations and between the government and heads of state at their annual World Economic Summits. Her years spent negotiating at the highest level fostered her expertise in consensus creation and cross-cultural communication.

Trained to perform under pressure, Frances Edmonds transferred her ability to master complex issues swiftly and her facility with languages to her ensuing career in radio and television broadcasting. It is precisely these skills which she employs when delivering high impact keynote speeches and hosting demanding conferences. In her capacity as a businesswoman who has helped create a prestigious specialist construction company, Frances believes that outstanding customer service is based on clear communication and on cohesive, motivated teams.

Frances’s understanding of business issues from her own experience in creating a specialised construction company led to her election as an Honorary Fellow of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs. She is also a Founder Member and Fellow of the Professional Speakers Association and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

While conducting research for her acclaimed motivational book Winning the Game of Life (2001), Frances Edmonds discovered the tools for personal and professional success employed by world-class performers in the worlds of business, politics, science, sports, education, the arts and non-profit. In her keynotes, she draws on this accumulated wisdom to suggest strategies for personal and professional success, well-being and fulfilment. Frances Edmonds combines intellectual curiosity about her audience with her own brand of wit to create truly memorable events.
