Blaire Palmer is at the forefront of new thinking about what it means to lead in the 21st century. In her keynote speeches she busts the myths of leadership and presents a more human, more authentic, more collaborative model of the leader of the future. Based on 15 years of working with Boards and senior teams as a coach and “agent provocateur”, Blaire shares her thought-provoking ideas with audiences around the world, inspiring them to step up and drive change in partnership with their people.

As one of the youngest female producers of the BBC’s flagship “Today Programme” Blaire 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.

Since then she’s become a world authority on leadership, writing 3 successful books on the subject in the process and is regularly quoted in the media.
