Leadership Speakers

Would Apple be the most valuable company in the world without Steve Jobs’ incomparable vision? Would FC Barcelona have won all possible titles in one year without Pep Guardiola’s strategy? Would Berkshire Hathaway’s shares have risen on average a compound annual rate of more than 20% for the last 50 years without Warren Buffett at the helm?

The answer to these three questions is, almost certainly, no. Without unifying vision, coherent strategy, and bold, confident decisions made by an exceptional leader, no organization will have much impetus or staying power. As the great Alondra de la Parra is fond of saying, a leader is like an orchestra conductor: they must know the capabilities of their musicians and their instruments, and how they work together. They must guide them to play in unison with a single united purpose. And they must have the clear values and unshakeable self-confidence that win their followers’ respect and persuade them to follow without hesitation. Those are the qualities of a leader who inspires change, who has the courage and will to make difficult decisions, and who has the ability to build a large and effective organization. Those are the leaders in Aurum Speakers Bureau’s portfolio. They are on the most prestigious leadership lists like Thinkers 50; they are captains of their industries and have led their teams to success on innumerable occasions.

And their achievements have not come by chance. They offer the insight you need to follow in their footsteps. Don’t wait any longer to bring them to your next event—seize this change to hear their secrets and methods, transform your management team, or motivate your company. Just tell us your preferences and what specific topic you want to address, and we’ll help you find a speaker capable of changing how you think. So, let’s talk Leadership, today’s and tomorrow’s. No matter whether you were a born leader or a carefully trained one, our experts will take your event to the next level.
