Deri Llewellyn-Davies is an internationally acclaimed speaker, author, adventurer and entrepreneur who is transforming lives around the world with his core message of No Regrets. With a commitment to helping others architect a life and business of No Regrets, he passionately and candidly delivers insights from his vast experience in business and adventures in life. One of the truly unique aspects of his speeches comes from his love of adventure. As he shares in his first book, Life’s Great Adventure, Deri has climbed five of the highest mountains in the world, run the Marathon des Sables, and completed an IronMan competition.
He also lived to tell his tale of No Regrets living after surviving the devastating earthquake while climbing Everest in the spring of 2015 as shared in his hugely popular TEDx presentation. Having approached all of these challenges with the same strategic discipline that he applies to business, he brings strategy to life in a truly inspirational way.
In a career spanning two decades, Deri’s business expertise has included roles on elite corporate boards from four billion dollar companies up to European executive board level. And having run 20 of his own small businesses, advising over 250 and speaking to thousands he brings his audiences deep insights with both a global and local perspective. Like few other speakers in his class, Deri can truly speak with authority on the spectrum of strategy – sales, marketing, operations, finance and people – and how they are all interconnected components.
As written in his business book, Strategy on a Page, he uses his signature Strategy on a PageTM methodology to demystify strategic concepts and enable audiences to leave with valuable, practical and actionable principles they can apply immediately.
Whether he’s advising executives in the C-suite on business strategy or providing mentorship in personal leadership he is a master at architecting his presentations for maximum impact.
Having spoken from, Vancouver to Katmandu (seriously!) from Los Angels to Amsterdam, Deri understands the cultural sensitivity of the audiences and can adapt to different industries and sizes of businesses. Held in high regard within the profession, Deri holds the coveted title of “Fellow” of the Professional Speakers Association, keynoting at the national conference, and proud member of the Global Speakers Federation, recently speaking at the global conference.
