Hamish’s practical, inspiring, energetic, thought provoking and humorous keynotes are based on stories and experiences from someone who has both succeeded at the highest level and inspired many others to do the same (engaged by over 500 organisations in 48 countries including many of the world’s most successful organisations).

In all cases, Hamish left behind a record of significant business growth triggered by placing customer benefit at the heart of all activities.
