Speaker

Robert AshtonRobert Ashton

I am a respected national commentator on social entrepreneurship. In particular, how individuals, organisations, communities and local Government are responding to the Localism challenge. I speak with authority and from experience. I speak with passion and use storytelling to inspire, encourage and motivate audiences to think and act differently.

When hired to deliver a conference keynote speech I will make time to attend the earlier sessions on the day. Then I will adapt my presentation to confront and deal with the emerging issues. Unlike many ‘professional’ speakers I do not simply deliver the same practiced talk everywhere I go.

I am also a skilled conference chair and facilitator. I quickly build rapport with my audience and prepare the way for each speaker. I will interview people who lack the confidence to deliver a presentation. Tell me the key issues you want drawn out and I will make sure they are fully debated.

"Robert Ashton's presentation at the University of the Highlands and Islands enterprise event was both inspirational and insightful. With humour and energy, he focused the audience's attention on the key challenges of fostering and supporting entrepreneurship in a remote region such as the Highlands whilst taking into account the importance of values and partnership working"

Geoffrey Bowden, Association of Translation Companies

"Robert gave a highly motivational opening keynote speach for our event, he really engaged the audience. A number of attendees quoted Robert''s speech as 'Very thought provoking and made me network better' and 'Thought provoking and an interesting view of SMEs operating unlike large businesses, emotionally and irrationally. A good promt to talk more with members who are not engaged' which clearly showed the research Robert put into his speech around our industry. Thank you."
