This week in a rare interview, Chairman and Co-founder of the London Speaker Bureau, Tom Kenyon-Slaney, openly shares what is going on in the bureau and the industry
Joining Maria Franzoni from his beachside home in Muscat, Oman, Tom tells listeners how he set up and has run the London Speaker Bureau remotely since its inception, the impact COVID has had on the speaking business, the new opportunities and markets opening up, and why he's confident that live events will come back stronger.
Listening to its leader, it is clear why the London Speaker Bureau was referred to as “the only global speaker bureau” by The New York Times.
Tom Kenyon-Slaney founded London Speaker Bureau in 1994, an international agency providing keynote speakers and boardroom advisors for corporations and governments around the world.
He was chairman of Save the Rhino from 2009 to 2013.
Tom is closely involved with several education and disaster relief organisations. He is the great grandson of William Kenyon-Slaney who scored the first international goal in association football on 8 March 1873 for England against Scotland.
In 1992, he walked solo across Spain, from La Coruna to Gibraltar, for Macmillan Cancer Support. In 1994, he walked from Mombasa, in Kenya to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, partly dressed as a rhinoceros in solidarity for Save the Rhino.
