Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organisations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.A trained ethnographer, he is the author of several best-selling books: the global best-seller, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2011) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). His latest book, The Infinite Game (2018), explores the differences between finite games (football, chess, etc), where the players are known, the rules are fixed and the endpoint is clear and compares them with what he calls the infinite ones: business, politics or even life itself. In the infinite games, the players come and go, the rules can be changed, and there is no defined endpoint. Also, there are no winners and losers in an infinite game. Simon brilliantly argues that many leaders and organizations are struggling because they are applying finite mindsets to infinite games, and teaches how the infinite mindset can be applied to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring organizations.Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organisations and in the world – those with the capacity to inspire – he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organisations inspire action.He is best known for popularising the concept of Why, and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on TED.com.Sinek’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention and have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organisations, including: 3M, Disney, Pfizer, NBC/Universal, jetBlue, the military, multiple government agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek has also presented his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress and to the senior leadership of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

After building a recording studio, The Manor, the first Virgin artist, Mike Oldfield, recorded and released ‘Tubular Bells’. Virgin Records went on to sign household names from the Sex Pistols to The Rolling Stones, becoming the biggest independent label in the world.Since Branson founded Virgin Atlantic in 1984, it has established itself as a leading global airline after overcoming BA’s Dirty Tricks campaign. Virgin Australia, Virgin America, Virgin Holidays, Virgin Limited Edition, Virgin Trains, Virgin Hotels and Virgin Galactic have followed in travel, while expansion elsewhere has seen Branson become the only person to build eight billion dollar companies in eight different sectors.Branson has challenged himself with many record breaking adventures, including the fastest ever Atlantic Ocean crossing, a series of hot air balloon adventures and kitesurfing across the English Channel. He has described Virgin Galactic, the world’s first commercial spaceline, as being “the greatest adventure of all”. Space travel has been a dream for Branson since he watched the moon landings on TV, and he registered the Virgin Galactic name in 1999. Testing for commercial service is underway, with Branson planning to join his family on the first space flight.He is also a record breaker online, voted the UK’s number one Twitter user, the world’s most social CEO and the world’s most followed person on LinkedIn.

He has more than 11.5 million followers across five social networks. He has also written six books, including autobiography Losing My Virginity.Since starting youth culture magazine Student aged, Branson has found entrepreneurial ways to provoke positive change in the world. He started a Student Advisory Centre aged 17 to help young people overcome issues ranging from abortion to sexuality. He set up the Virgin Earth Challenge in 2007 – a $25 million prize for scalable and sustainable ways of removing greenhouse gases from the air.In 2004 he established non-profit foundation Virgin Unite to tackle tough social and environmental problems and strives to make business a force for good. Most of his time is now spent working with Virgin Unite and organisations it has incubated, such as The Elders, Carbon War Room, B Team and Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship.

Additionally, he released his musical album, Space Sessions: Songs From a Tin Can, in 2015. He is also featured on Ted.com for his talk, What I Learned from Going Blind in Space.Currently, Colonel Hadfield can be seen as the co-creator and host of the internationally acclaimed BBC series Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?, and he is co-hosting, with actor Will Smith, the National Geographic series One Strange Rock, directed by Darren Aronofsky.Colonel Hadfield is also the producer of the celebrated Rare Earth series on YouTube, and the creator of the on-stage celebration Generator, which combines science, comedy, and music for sold-out audiences.Additionally, Colonel Hadfield is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo and a founding director of the Canadian Children’s Literacy Foundation, the national advocate for initiatives enabling Canada’s children to achieve their full potential through literacy and to become the most literate in the world.

During his mandate the club won two UEFA Champions Leagues; four Spanish Ligas; one FIFA Club World Cup; one UEFA Super Cup; one Spanish King’s Cup and three Spanish Supercups.Laporta is also a prestigious lawyer (graduating from the University of Barcelona) with his own firm, Laporta & Arbós, a combined practice of lawyers and economists, made up of professionals with a background in the business world and the civil service, whose mission is to provide enterprises with a truly integrated service. Joan Laporta is also a well-known politician and has been elected as member of the Catalan regional parliament and is also city counselor for Barcelona’s city council.“We managed to achieve excellence in our field but everything is a process and the ones who deserve all the recognition are the players. We had the best ones” – Joan LaportaHis first season as President of FC Barcelona would prove to be a watershed for the club. The club situation was one of bitter unhappiness and disappointment amongst both fans and players after the club failed to meet their own standards, having not won trophies since 1999. With Laporta’s arrival, as well as new manager Frank Rijkaard among others, the club was forced to embark on a new phase, having elected a new, young and largely untested managerial board along with him.The 2006-2007 season started with the signing of the agreement with UNICEF, in which the Club committed itself to collaborate economically and in addition wear the UNICEF logo on the shirts of the football team. This was an unprecedented move designed to strengthen the strategy of converting Barcelona into “more than a club” throughout the world.In 2008, Josep Guardiola was appointed first team manager. The year before he had taken over the reserve side, Barcelona B, when they were on the verge of promotion to Second Division B. After this appointment the most brilliant season in the history of the club began. The football first team achieved success in every competition in which they took part. The team won the Kings Cup, then the league and finally the Champions League against Manchester United in Rome, the third European Cup in the Club’s history. At the beginning of the next season, this list of titles was extended to include the Spanish Super Cup, the European Super Cup and the World Club Cup, making this Barca the team of the Six Cups. The World Club Cup won in Abu Dhabi against Estudiantes de la Plata (2-1) was the only competition never won before by the Club. President Laporta was then able to round off his mandate with another league title in the 2009-10 season.In Joan’s seven years as President, Barcelona won the World Club Cup, two European Cups, the European Super Cup, four League Titles, the Kings Cup, three Spanish Super Cups and three Copes Catalunya. In the economic and social areas the annual budget increased from E170 million to E445 million whilst membership rose from 106,135 to 173,701.

His story is the ultimate tale of how the pursuit of wealth can often trump the importance of ethics in the business world. In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in the nation’s financial circles before his well-publicized fall. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year, a feat that earned him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street.”Belfort’s career was captured in the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated film, The Wolf of Wall Street, released on Christmas Day 2013. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort and was directed by Martin Scorsese.

Championing such issues as human development, democracy, and demilitarization, he has traveled the globe spreading a message of peace and applying the lessons garnered from the Central American Peace Process to topics of current global debate. The New York Times reported that Oscar Arias’s “positions on Central American issues have become the standards by which many people in Congress and elsewhere have come to judge United States policy.” In a similar way, he has come to take a leading position in international forums and discourse.As president, Dr. Arias drafted the Arias Peace Plan, which was signed by five Central American presidents on August 7, 1987, and established peace in the region. That same year, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and used the monetary award to establish the Arias Foundation for Peace and Human Progress, which promoted equal opportunities for women in all sectors of Central American society, fostered change-oriented philanthropy in Latin America, and worked for demilitarization and conflict resolution in the developing world.Dr. Arias was a visible president, frequently venturing out in public on his own to listen to the concerns of the citizenry. He remains “a man of the people” today and carries a sincere message of solidarity and partnership, to counter the growing threats faced by all nations today and to initiate an era of peace and prosperity for all humankind.

Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organisations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.A trained ethnographer, he is the author of several best-selling books: the global best-seller, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2011) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). His latest book, The Infinite Game (2018), explores the differences between finite games (football, chess, etc), where the players are known, the rules are fixed and the endpoint is clear and compares them with what he calls the infinite ones: business, politics or even life itself. In the infinite games, the players come and go, the rules can be changed, and there is no defined endpoint. Also, there are no winners and losers in an infinite game. Simon brilliantly argues that many leaders and organizations are struggling because they are applying finite mindsets to infinite games, and teaches how the infinite mindset can be applied to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring organizations.Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organisations and in the world – those with the capacity to inspire – he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organisations inspire action.He is best known for popularising the concept of Why, and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on TED.com.Sinek’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention and have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organisations, including: 3M, Disney, Pfizer, NBC/Universal, jetBlue, the military, multiple government agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek has also presented his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress and to the senior leadership of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

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.
