ayd instone creativity speaker

Three Keynote talks
For your conference after lunch energiser slot

You know it’s not easy putting together a day-long or multiple day programme that gets all the information and messages across to the audience without the audience losing concentration, focus or engagement at some point during the event.

That’s where Ayd can help. His performance is designed to not only get a message across (about changing how you think to be better and achieve more) but also energises, entertains and inspires in such a way that it’s perfect for the slot where you feel concentration is at its lowest point.

Many speakers shy away from the first session in the afternoon. Ayd requests this slot first as his presentations are ideal as your after lunch energiser.

These keynote talks are available in 30, 45, 60 or 90 minute lengths.

What your business needs to learn from John Lennon
An insightful, musical, entertaining conference keynote

Who it’s for: Large corporate conferences.

John Lennon may have left us 31 years ago, but his legacy is not only alive and well – it’s making a lot of money with an annual income of over £10M which adds to the existing £400M already banked.

You may scoff and say, “of course there’s money, he’s an icon, a legend, due in part to the obvious fact that he’s dead. It’s not like my business at all, a completely different thing.”

But you’d be wrong. If we think about what that really means, and Lennon's creative journey and business story, it gives us some interesting lessons for business...

With fascinating examples and insights into John Lennon and the Beatles, incorporating some of Lennon's songs as you've never heard or thought of them before, this keynote gives you a thought provoking and entertaining session for your conference.

“Ayd breaks with convention and the tried and tested methods of audience connection, to try something dare I say, unique. If you want to be enlightened, amused and entertained book Ayd Instone.” — Ian Plover, Business of Change

Ayd Instone motivational innovation creativity speaker

Because Ayd is so energetic, original and entertaining, he is perfectly suited to energise your event in any of the key slots of:

The Opening - to begin the event on a high, to open delegates learning abilities, to have them in an inspired state to take on board more of the messages that will follow.

If you have a highly important speaker lined up - put Ayd on just before and he’ll get the audience in a state that will be ready to engage and think about the messages to come.

After lunch - getting delegates to return to concentration is tricky for the most experienced presenters. Ayd excels at it and can get the all room to be ‘back in the room’ to receive the most value from the rest of the day.

The Closing - Ayd can guarantee the event finishes on an inspired high, so that people leave motivated to take what they’ve learned back and take action on it.

After Dinner - Why waste resources on just an entertainer for the evening when you can have your after or pre-dinner slot filled with Ayd’s session that entertains AND continues to deliver learning value.

With more pressure on everyone to deliver more, to pack more and more in to a tighter schedule. Meeting planners have to make sure that time spent at an event is time and money well spent.

By incorporating Ayd's session into your programme you’ll find it will benefit the entire event, aiding concentration, memory retention and application of the information presented before and after his presentation in a way that will stay with the delegates long after the event is over.

Contact Ayd today to discover how you and your business will benefit from being able to create more innovation in every aspect of your operations.
