He weaves together theory with anecdotes and practical advice and is always happy handling questions from the audience. Often, Tom’s role extends into that of facilitator where longer presentations are helped by engaging the audience through group discussions and other exercises to develop and embed key learning points.

Tom’s style of presenting at these events is enthusiastic, engaging, ‘light touch’, practical and insightful.

About us

12 year career

Tom Bird


I'm so pleased I was able to attend Tom's outstanding session when we spoke at the same event at the London Stock Exchange recently. His content was relevant and his delivery excellent. With humour and easy-going charm, Tom gave the audience practical and real key take-aways around the one key element of success in any endeavour: effective influencing.

-Lorne Sulcas-

Tom Bird and I both spoke at at a Leadership Conference in London. Tom is an engaging and entertaining speaker, sharing his meaningful insights on influence and effective human interaction. The audience thoroughly enjoyed his depth of knowledge and his engaging presentation. I highly recommend Tom Bird as a speaker.

-Gary Noesner-

Your talk had me fully engaged. I gained valuable learning from both the content and ideas you shared, and from the engaging, interesting and practical manner in which you delivered your message. It left me wanting more.

-Paddy Upton-

Tom is an engaging presenter who was able to cover a substantial volume of material over two days and which provided our team with several very valuable insights and strategies on how to develop relationships and influence more effectively.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions you've been running with [international PSF] - I've learned more in the last two sessions than I have in my entire career. Huge thanks and bravo, keep your passion and enthusiasm, it's infectious!
