Hamish Taylor was trained in brand management at Procter and Gamble, a Management Consultant at Price Waterhouse, Head of Brands at British Airways, CEO of Eurostar, and CEO of Sainsburys Bank – all before he was 40.
In each case, he left behind a record of significant growth and turnaround triggered by a willingness to challenge industry & organisation norms and place the customer at the core of all activities.
Hamish acts as a global advisor to some of the worlds largest companies (but is equally happy working with small companies) – often assisting with specific innovation projects, new business pursuits and/or people development. The wide appeal of his messages means he has worked with clients ranging from Prime Ministers and CEO’s to frontline staff; from major multi-nationals to small groups; from Sales/Marketing and Executive teams to HR, Risk, Finance and many other functions.
Although specialising in Keynote Speeches, Hamish is also much in demand for Facilitation and/or Masterclasses and will work with you to tailor his message to your brief and themes. He brings a rare combination of an outstanding CV (someone who has done it!) and a fantastic ability to inspire audiences – delivered through both the use of stories, tailored advice and practical tools from his own experience; with an enthusiastic, humorous style. His lessons provide relevant and practical ways of achieving breakthroughs for delegates.
Hamish is regularly featured in the broadcast media, his most recent project being the “Teen Canteen” television programme for the BBC.
