I speak on a range of subjects at events ranging from South By South West Interactive in Austin, Texas (2009, 2010) and The Do Lectures (2015) to Meet The Innovators at The Apple Store London (2013), The Snap Photography Festival (2016) and the Marketing Academy's Inspire Live event (2017). Organisations also hire me to speak, including Dentsu Aegis (2014), The University of East London (2015, 2016, 2017), the Paris-based accelerator TheFamily (2015), The York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (2015), Ravensbourne college (2016) and London’s Royal College Of Art (2009).
I'm also hired to host panel discussions at events. This year I've hosted panels on humanising financial brands for Rooster Punk and the future of influencer marketing for Takumi as part of Social Media Week London. I also run workshops for organisations including the BBC (check out my Workshops page).
My areas of expertise include: storytelling, curiosity, taking the leap to work for yourself, and the future of work. Whatever the subject matter, I always aim to shake things up, inspire the audience and get them fired up about their work!
“I loved Ian’s talk. Staying curious is especially important for the team here at Channel 4 as our remit demands that we champion alternative points of view and celebrate diversity. Ian’s talk was a great shot in the arm.” Harry Dromey, Channel 4
