Dominic Colenso knows a thing or two about the highs and lows of performance. By the time he was 26 he had flown a Thunderbird, lost one million dollars and been fired by Simon Cowell. Beginning his career as a professional actor, he worked extensively on stage and screen before training as a director at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
Performing in many of the UK’s leading theatres including The National Theatre and The Royal Court, Dominic has appeared on film in everything from BBC period dramas to big budget action movies. He is best known for playing Virgil Tracy in the Hollywood adaptation of Thunderbirds with Bill Paxton and Sir Ben Kingsley.
Dominic’s experience and fascination in how the body, breath and voice can influence performance led him to set up his communication skills training consultancy In Flow and to write his bestselling book “IMPACT: How to be more confident, increase your influence and know what to say under pressure”. Dominic now works with organisations around the world to help individuals, teams and leaders take centre stage and deliver outstanding performances.

Change is the new normal. The business environment has never been more competitive. Everyone needs to do more with less. And yet, in 99% of businesses there is one key asset that remains untapped. A latent potential that has the power to unlock productivity, engagement and profit. An area of focus that can transform a business overnight. What is this game changing resource? The answer is simple: Your people’s ability to communicate effectively.
One of the biggest challenges we face as we move into the 2020s is that the way we communicate at work has evolved. We are increasingly busy and that pace shows no signs of slowing. Technology should be there to help us, reducing our stress levels and increasing our productivity and yet in most organisations the opposite is true. If we want to succeed in business, we need to understand the importance of analogue communication in a digital age. By learning to consistently make an impact we can increase our influence and improve our results.

NEW KEYNOTE – Analogue Communication in a Digital Age (for 2020)
You can have the greatest idea in the world but if you can’t bring it to life in the hearts and minds of your audience – your customers, colleagues, investors and stakeholders – then it counts for nothing. The way we do business is changing. The pace seems faster. The world seems smaller. The opportunities seem bigger. But one thing is constant: the human need for connection. The digital age was designed to bring us closer together but it is in danger of driving us apart. The need to develop the skills of analogue communication has never been greater.
As we move into the 2020s businesses who successfully tell the most compelling stories will build the strongest tribes. Social media doesn’t spread your message, people do. Organisations that tap into their people’s ability to share their vision, values and purpose will be the ones that make the biggest leaps.
This keynote will help your audience to:
- Understand their own impact
- Engage their audience’s emotions
- Unlock the power of storytelling
- Create more powerful connections
- Provide direction and leadership in times of uncertainty
- Shift from a transactional to a transformational mindset

We’ve engaged him to speak to our finance team several times and he really knows his stuff – he makes it fun and simple to understand. If you want a dynamic speaker for your event, with content that delegates can immediately put into practice, Dominic delivers.”
