RECENT SPEECHES

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance is catching what I am pitching: Good culture + being a good human = great success. It’s not rocket science. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance, particularly Daniel Kenny, for the invaluable opportunity to be a REAL human voice advocating the significance of culture in driving remarkable success.

Sydney Swans

 

In 1998, playing for Sydney Swans introduced me to the powerful Bloods Culture. It taught me work ethic, teamwork, resilience, and sacrifice. Applying these principles to all aspects of life, I’ve experienced firsthand how GOOD culture leads to GREAT success. I am incredibly grateful to speak on Bloods Culture and resilience for the Sydney Swans playing team.

Some words from people Barnaby has worked with…

“At yLead we are constantly searching for high quality speakers with the ability to present an interesting and relevant message, whilst engaging a diverse range of audiences. Barnaby Howarth has not only met our expectations, but has well and truly exceeded them. Barnaby is the ultimate role model. His profound life journey, along with the rich perspective he has developed along the way, is utterly inspiring. He has the ability to challenge the way people think about themselves, their relationships and their future.”

MATT KERSHAW

CEO, yLead

“Barnaby Howarth did a keynote presentation for the Fortnum Group at our July 2017 Conference. Not only was the delivery by Barnaby outstanding but the message he gave struck a chord with the whole audience. We had tremendous feedback from everyone regarding Barnaby’s contribution to the Conference.

I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other conference organisers.”

RAY MILES

Chairman, Fortnum Financial Advisers

“As a business woman, and having the privilege of chatting professionally, I experience a lot of speakers- Barnaby is one of the best!! His relaxed, casual, fun, real chatting style is easy to listen to. He is an articulate, wise and a prepared presenter and he is committed to sharing strategies rather than “rah, rah”.

I watched Barnaby chat with 13 and 14 year olds-the toughest audience of all, and they were inspired by him and took away a stack of immediately implementable tools to grow themselves as human beings.”

ROWENA SZESZERAN-McEVOY

Founder, MAX College

“What Barnaby offers is unique. He isn’t a celebrity. He isn’t what you would normally expect to see on the corporate or event circuit. He speaks honestly and with credibility. I would definitely use him again as a keynote speaker or Master of Ceremonies.”

JOSEPHINE BILOUS

Freelance Event Producer

"Barnaby is more than a friend of the Club, he is a Blood. To say his story is one of resilience does not do it justice. Quite simply, Barnaby is a remarkable human and delivers his lessons with candour and humour in equal measures. Anyone who spends time with Barnaby will walk away a better person."
