Helping you book the right Keynote and Motivational Speakers for your 2016 events programme

Wishing all our clients around the world a Happy New Year from the Chartwell team and all the motivational and keynote speakers we represent around the world!

We’re excited about the year ahead, even though it’s got off to difficult start. There’s a lot happening politically (Presidential elections in the US and France, a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, Russian parliamentary elections and much more), economically (continued speculation about the outlook for the global economy, uncertainty about China’s ability to sustain high levels of GDP growth, the robustness of the Eurozone and the consequence of very low energy and commodity prices) and in the world of sport (Euro16 and the Rio Olympics). Digitalisation plus new technologies and materials will continue to force businesses to keep innovating to stay ahead of their global competitors. Daesh will continue to frighten the world, even as its relative threat shrinks. The Middle East will remain highly unstable. Iran will begin to be re-integrated into the global economy, but the depressed global oil price means that it won’t get the bonanza it was hoping for.

To help you plan for your 2016 events, here’s some of the speakers we rate highly on some of the big 2016 topics:
