Keynote Speaker: Renowned Executive Coach, CEO of Inspired Leaders Network & Author of "Spike"

René Carayol Biography

René Carayol is one of the world’s leading executive coaches, working with some of the Fortune 500’s and FTSE 100’s top CEOs and their executive teams.

He speaks with the authority and confidence of the expert and leader who has seen and experienced it all before. Carayol draws much from his own unique experiences as Managing Director at IPC Magazines and serving on a variety of boards including Pepsi, ITG and the Inland Revenue.

Carayol has acquired a reputation for providing first-hand advice and support for a series of successful CEOs in the Fortune 500, FTSE 100 and all around the world. Many may claim to have worked at the ‘sharp end’ with CEOs, but in actual fact very few have. He has worked closely with Jim Yong Kim (President, The World Bank), Antony Jenkins (CEO, Barclays Bank), Mario Greco (CEO, Generali) and Maria Ramos (CEO, Absa Bank). Hardly any can match his sustained track record of success. The CEO is the most important and most challenging job in the business. On day one, it is all brand new to the incumbent, and there is no one around to show them what needs to be done. It is the role that rarely has an appropriate job description and even rarer is there any form of handover. It is, without a doubt, the toughest job in the world but with the right team around them everyone flourishes.

As the world of work faces a period of transformation after the pandemic, driven by the increase in racial and social awareness, our CEOs and our businesses have to meet the demands of a new generation that places Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) at their hearts. Recently, we have seen a significant increase in interest for Carayol to address Inclusive Leadership. This provides leadership teams with straightforward, compelling advice and guidance to inspire change and transform their own corporate culture.

From sitting in the boardrooms to coaching world leaders, Carayol’s extensive experience in business has provided him with case studies and stories from the frontline. There are exciting adventures, emotional anecdotes, and enough C-suite drama to excite any audience. Carayol delivers learning wrapped up as unforgettable stories told by a master storyteller. You will want to hear them again and again.

Carayol specializes in delivering performances that show precisely how contemporary leaders can electrify their colleagues through a passionate and authentic connection. He demonstrates just how captivating an emotionally intelligent approach can be. He is never about theory - it is all about actions and behaviors that you can adopt that will make your teams more powerful when they come together. Everyone remembers how his sessions made them feel.

Carayol is an accomplished visiting professor at Cass Business School. His critically acclaimed latest book, ‘Spike – What are you great at?’, enables all of us to unleash our inherent strengths and realize our true potential. As Carayol says, “If you accept your limitations, you go beyond them”.

EXTRAORDINARY TIMES DEMANDS EXTRAORDINARY LEADERSHIP

Our world has changed. We need a more inclusive and empathetic form of leadership for these extraordinary times.

Many businesses have made statements and declarations of intent about BLACK LIVES MATTER. But now comes the real challenge – inclusion.

We all need someone to believe in and something to belong to. We need environments where difference is both respected and valued, and encourage different approaches. When all added together, we create vibrant and innovative teams.

CULTURE IS MORE POWERFUL THAN STRATEGY

Most progressive businesses have learned that when it comes to Change during the volatile and turbulent times we are living in, Culture is more Powerful than Strategy.

We believe that we can no longer ‘tell’ people to change, we need to ‘show’ and inspire them to change.

COLLABORATION IS THE NEW LEADERSHIP

“Nothing is best done alone anymore”. No one leader can make all the tough calls on their own. In today’s unforgiving markets, every leader requires the support of a diverse and high-performing team.

Building a collaborative culture demands a new approach to leadership and mind-set.

MANAGE A LITTLE LESS AND LEAD A LITTLE MORE

A good enough management team, strategy, and brand was also good enough. This is no longer the case. The blunt instrument of Management alone just doesn’t cut it anymore. It is the time for Leadership, and Inspired Leadership at that.

INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP

Business leaders are not only tasked with stabilizing their operations during the pandemic, they know that in order to rebuild their company’s culture, it must be with a committed effort towards:

  • Clarity
  • Certainty
  • Hope

Doing nothing is not an option. Maybe doing the same thing you have always done may not deliver the future so many deserve. Fortune will favour those brave enough to try things differently.
