He is not just one of the world’s leading executive coaches, working with some of the Fortune 500’s top CEO’s and their executive teams, but he has also actually been Chairman, CEO and MD of blue chip businesses. He speaks with the authority and confidence of the expert practitioner who has seen and experienced it all before.

René specialises in delivering unforgettable and unmissable performances that show precisely how contemporary inspired leadership can electrify an audience through a powerful and authentic emotional connection.

René draws much from his own unique experiences on the boards of some of the biggest international organisations; from Marks and Spencer and Pepsi, to IPC Media and the Inland Revenue.

If you are looking for a clever academic who will read out a well-crafted speech on the theory, concept and abstract of ‘thought leadership’ – then stop here.

Whilst being a much-acclaimed Visiting Professor at the distinguished Cass Business School in London, and lecturing on their MSc in Management, René is no academic.

If what you’re after is the most important leadership clarion call to your top people, that will energise them to see the art of the possible and stir the leader inside of each of them – then you must be speaking of René Carayol.

His latest book, SPIKE, is leading the ‘Strengths based Revolution’. SPIKE is not a business self- help book. It is a journey of self-discovery. It will change your views of yourself and as importantly of your teams.

“My experience of working with some of the world’s best leaders of this generation; from Prime Minister David Cameron, Sir Richard Branson, Nelson Mandela, and many others, informs me that none of them are flawless or ‘all-rounders’.

But they all tend to know their 2/3 SPIKES, and have taken the time and focus to fine tune them to near Olympian standards”.

René will share the magic and simplicity of the compelling SPIKE philosophy. In his world of SPIKE, there are no losers anymore – everyone has something they are great at.

The new world order is struggling to deal with constant uncertainty, René provides a compelling approach to the future that is built on ‘managing a little less and leading a little more’.

You will continue to see René on the BBC and Sky News as an expert commentator and you can see his portfolio of TV series for the BBC on his YouTube channel.

René has built his reputation on getting to know the culture of businesses better than they do themselves, and providing answers and solutions no matter how big or small the problems.

His messages are practical, real life experiences delivered with electrifying effect. He both shakes up and inspires his audiences by showing them not only what lies within their grasp, but how true collaboration makes everyone stronger.
