Gavin Oattes

After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)

"Inspirational", "Mind-Blowing", "Hilarious" and "Barn-Storming" are just a few of the words used by clients to describe Gavin Oattes and his unique ability to entertain, enlighten and educate an audience.

Gavin Oattes is an international keynote speaker, award winning comedian, children's author and former Young Entrepreneur of the Year.  Although he spends much of his time speaking to business leaders and directors of some of the world's leading organisations Gavin's true inspiration for what he does comes from where he started out his career...primary school teaching.

"too many have lost that little piece of magic. It is time to get it back"

Gavin is the Managing Director of Tree of Knowledge, who have helped hundreds of thousands of children, parents, teachers and staff with their inspiring talks and presentations.


It was in 2010 when Gavin appeared on BBC's Dragons Den with the Tree of Knowledge and his learning device, The APODO System. Peter Jones who made an offer, said, "I've been involved in trying to make a difference in education. You're probably the best that I've seen".

Gavin is a firm believer that we as adults can be every bit as inspired by young children as they can by us grown-ups. Gavin transports his audience back to when they were just 5 years of age, a time when we feared nothing and embraced everything. You will laugh, you will cry, you will feel and you will never eat broccoli in the same way again!


Over the past decade, Gavin has worked with literally hundreds of thousands of people and is now regarded as one the most talented and sought after speakers in the UK.
