Organising Events? Get PROMOTED not FIRED! Secrets of all great after dinner speakers. How to win audiences, get top keynote speaker reviews and avoid common disasters

I have spoken at major corporate events for over 400 of the world’s largest multinationals, often sharing the platform with their global CEO.  Here, and in links below, are some of the secrets of success.

Event organisers get promoted or fired - here's why Organising corporate events is a very risky activity (and so is speaking at them). Organisers are likely either to get promoted or fired.  And a keynote speaker can become famous or be totally disgraced in a single evening.The stakes are often extremely high to get events right.  Take a hotel industry event I gave a keynote at recently: 800 CEOs of the world's leading hotels all in the same room, flying in from all over the world to a global team conference in Qatar.....

Future Cancer Treatment: expect rapid improvement. Futurist keynote for Pfizer by Dr Patrick Dixon - VIDEO

Already over 70% of new cancers are cured in many EU nations. Expect major progress in gene profiling of tumours, matching chemo to tumour type, stimulation of the immune system to fight your own cancer cells more effectively. Specialist centres have higher cure rates - expect further investment in cancer clinics that have the very latest facilities, higher patient numbers, greater research funding. Expect many cancer therapies to FALL in price as patents expire - leading to more generics and biosimilar drugs at as little as 5% of previous prices. However, expect latest therapies to continue to be very expensive, especially if large molecules grown / manufactured in living cells. But even here, in an average of 10 years, each of those patents will also expire. In the meantime, small things will continue to make a huge difference:

Future of Retail in Europe, India, China, America, Africa - mergers and mega scale. Futurist Retail Keynote - VIDEO / POST

70% of UK retail spend is captured by only 7-8 companies. 50% of all EU retail spend is captured by only 10 retailers. The future of retail is massive scale and consolidation - farming, clothing, fast moving consumer goods, digital and so on - warehousing, logistics, supply chains, giant stores etc. Truth is that most retail outlets in the world are in emerging markets where 85% of all retail customers live, and 99.5% of them are the size of a shipping container or smaller, much smaller if you include informal street traders. We can debate about the speed of the trend or how far consolidation will go but Europe is pointing the way ahead. Of course the upside is astonishing efficiency which means lower prices usually, but the downside is lack of choice. Take bookselling: outside of major chains, there are few book outlets today in Europe, and most of them are small. But big chains only have limited shelf space so only a fraction of the 200,000 new titles in the UK each year will ever make it to a supermarket shelf. The rest will mostly have to fight online for attention of readers. Books are one thing, but fashion is quite another. If you wander into Shopping Malls from Beijing to Rio de Janeiro you find the same thing: almost identical chains selling identical range of items. Same in airport Duty Free areas globally. So shopping is becoming very boring - an additional factor driving online sales and further contraction in traditional retail outlets.

Future of Banking Futurist keynote - scale, legacy systems, cybersecurity risks and customer expectations - VIDEO / POST

Comment after Future Banking keynote for Wolters Kluwer in Portugal: Expect radical changes in banking, driven by emotion as well as tech. For example in Germany, % of economy traded online is only 25% of that in the UK because of differences in trust re online payments. Expect loads more bank mergers: only 2 mobile phone operating systems in world; 2 major airline builders; 6 major auto companies BUT 26,000 banks / credit unions, while costs spiral / bank with regulation, cybersecurity etc. Major challenge to mergers will continue to be legacy systems since 97/100 largest banks globally still using cobol-based 1980s type systems on IBM hardware, costing on AVERAGE $100m to maintain EACH, with massive headaches to integrate to or more such dinosaurs after every merger or acquisition.

How to stay close to customers! Simple step costs nothing, creates magic and customer engagement. How to build trust and win contracts. Futurist keynote VIDEO / POST

Secret of customer engagement.  "Change how you communicate. Phone and email is a waste of time if you want to build trust and be part of the customer's "family". Text really matters - keep really close, share personally, be a friend, become a trusted confidant and advisor, and you are already most of the way to closing a major deal, over competitors who have only an email relationship."  

One in three people in the UK only use phone calls to speak to their parents.  They are most likely to send texts to partners and WhatsApp messages to friends.  Most people find social media more convenient than talking on the phone, yet most companies are lagging far behind in how they communicate to customers and their teams.
