After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)
Jez Rose is an internationally renowned professional speaker, award-winning author and one of the most sought-after conference hosts and specialist guest speakers in the world today.
He is known as the go-to guy for memorable presentations on understanding and improving human behaviour and Well Being for a list of clients that reads like a "who's who" of leading global brands, including: Skillsoft, Quilter, Volkswagen, Marriott, Scansource, Philips, Wella, Audi and a number of very well known global pharmaceutical companies.
Despite being considered a leading expert in his field, he remains a big kid at heart, creating unique and entertaining demonstrations to ensure his audiences remember what they hear and are inspired to achieve extraordinary things with simple changes to how they think.
Still best known for his work as a behaviour insight consultant, advising organisations and presenting to hundreds of thousands of people each year, turning mundane business conferences into memorable events, but Jez Rose began his career in the National Health Service. He worked as a comedy performer to help fund his studies in psychology and behaviour before a short stint as a further education teacher, where he lectured on social applications of psychology.
Today, Jez travels extensively, presenting to and creating training programmes for organisations worldwide. Over the past 12 years he has presented and delivered development programmes in more than 14 countries, 158 cities and to more than 100,000 people.
He writes for international media publications including CNN, Minutehack.com and The Daily Telegraph and has made more than 100 appearances on television and radio, most recently on BBC's Saturday Kitchen and ITV's James Martin's Saturday Morning. He's a regular special guest for BBC and LBC radio and in his own 60-minute pilot for ITV1, as well as on popular shows for Channel 4, The Discovery Channel, QVC and BBC1's Breakfast Show.
An award-winning author of several books, including his latest, Flip The Switch. Ask Jez what he believes makes organisations succeed and he'll tell you that the most important asset of any organisation is their people and the environment in which they work: "We are each capable of achieving quite extraordinary things with simple changes to how we think, however, equally simple things can prevent us from doing so. An insight into why we behave the way we do puts you ahead."
Jez is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; Former Faculty Lead for the ground-breaking research pilot The Good Life Project; Faculty Member of the award-winning Unite University. He has been invited to speak at the world-renowned TEDx conferences in 2014 (UK) and 2016 (USA).

Linda was very happy with the presentation and has asked me to think about other opportunities we may have to work with you again... once you've recovered from today!

"I have worked with Jez in the role of both guest speaker and host. He is a joy to work with, bringing a wonderful combination of both intelligence and humour to his role. Jez spends time to get to the heart of the client's objectives, tailoring his delivery to capture the right messages that address the needs of the audience. I would recommend Jez without hesitation, he thinks on his feet, embraces the last minute changes typical to any live event, and is committed to ensure your audience leaves energised, motivated and inspired."

"The feedback here has been quite amazing, from "where on earth did you find a guy like that" (in the best possible sense) to "this was one of our best quarterly meetings ever". Whichever way you look at it, it was a win... I found it to be educational and entertaining. Your style is completely different to any presenter I have seen before which is what made it so fresh and memorable. So from us, our thanks for a great session which fitted well into the agenda."
