CEO Speakers

CEOBigSpeak’s CEO Speakers are true leaders and captains of industry; bold visionaries, innovators and entrepreneurs with a passion for cultivating people and cultures. They‘re legendary for their uncanny ability to turn things around, demonstrating unwavering leadership in times of turmoil and possessing remarkable insight that always seems to place them light-years ahead of the curve. Our CEO’s have been in the trenches and have the stories and scars to prove it, whether forging their own start-ups or taking the reins of a company in peril. With names like Branson, Orfalea, Putnam and Chappell these CEO’s are also at the forefront of defining corporate social responsibility, philanthropy, mentoring, servant leadership and even sustainable business practices. Who’s your leader listening to? When you’re ready to think outside the boss, bring one of our CEO Speakers to your organization.

"One measure of leadership is the caliber of people who choose to follow you."
