Blaire Palmer


Future of Leadership Expert

Future of Leadership expert and speaker , Blaire Palmer, draws on more than 20 years’ experience challenging, provoking and guiding senior leaders as they try to figure out how their people and their organisations can thrive in these fast-changing times.  Our relationship with work is on the verge of a disruption the likes of which we haven’t seen since the industrial revolution. That means the expectations of our people, the environment which brings out their best and even the role that business plays in the wider world is up for reinvention.

Covering hybrid working, empowerment and engagement, diversity and equity, leadership and motivation and anticipating future work trends, Blaire busts myths about leadership and change, and stimulates audiences with real life stories and fresh ideas to rethink what it means to lead in the 21st Century.

As a Producer on the BBC’s flagship “Today Programme” in the 90s, Blaire Palmer spent a decade breaking stories and shaping the UK news agenda before her fascination with leadership and change led her to train as one of the UK’s first corporate coaches. Two decades on, she gives audiences unparalleled insight into what’s happening in the most innovative Boardrooms in the UK and Europe, trends she’s spotting in her work and what works (and doesn’t) when it comes to change and leadership in real businesses right now.


Busting the Myths of Leadership

How on earth do we lead in this ‘post-Covid’ world of work? Well, it starts by rejecting conventional wisdom about leadership…the rules of work that evolved in the 19th and 20th Century, and focusing instead on the power of authentic human connection, trust and the wisdom of the people you hired. To do that, leaders need to change the way they see themselves and the role they play in the business and empower their people to be great. Blaire draws on more than 20 years working as a coach and confidante to senior leaders and their teams and presents her practical yet powerful guide to becoming the leader your people need you to be. Lively, funny and thought-provoking, Blaire leaves audiences feeling confident to try something new.

Busting the Myths of Change

The rules of change are changing. It’s not about selling people on ‘The Why’ anymore. Now they need to feel THEY are leading the change. In this keynote, Blaire draws on more than two decades running leadership and culture change programmes to explain how to create passionate enthusiastic for change throughout your organisation.




We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
