Tom is an experienced speaker working in the UK, Mainland Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. He presents to international audiences from individual companies and professional service firms at their annual or regional conferences and at open leadership conferences at venues like The London Stock Exchange.

Building on his 12 year track record in leading sales team and running UK/European offices for international hi-tech companies, Tom has an empathy for the real-world issues his audiences face which builds both credibility and empathy.

His presentations focus on effective influence, selling and client relationships and provide his audiences with highly practical take-aways that they can immediately apply back in their work environment. Tom tailors his presentations to the context of his audience to ensure they are credible, relevant and engaging. 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.

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. He walked his talk by really connecting with the audience in a marvelous way. As a fellow speaker, I found myself taking copious notes about ways I can improve my influencing skills. I had the pleasure of being able to thank and chat with him in person afterwards... Tom is utterly relateable and likeable - both on and off the stage.

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.

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.
