Speaker Guidelines

February 02, 2019

Keynote Duration

Daniel’s keynote presentations are individually tailored to the time-frame of your event and usually extend to between 45 and 60 minutes. Where the program allows, an additional Q&A session may be arranged. Apart from his time on stage, Daniel would be delighted to support the event with any social or other interaction such as dinner or group activities. Daniel will make every effort to contribute to the success of your event – every time.


Style and Content


Daniel’s presentations are constantly updated and changed. No two presentations are ever the same. Clients may request a presentation to be tailored to a specific industry – but an adequate time lead-in of a minimum of 4 weeks must be provided should this be requested. Last-minute bookings are welcome – depending on scheduling issues. However, no deviation from the advertised Keynote topics will be allowed. Lectures are always lively and animated in style. Daniel does not read out long speeches – instead preferring to use points and direct contact with his audience in a very conversational and engaging style.

Technical Requirements

  • Most of Daniel’s presentations require a large-screen PowerPoint capability. Daniel’s presentations rely on both text and visuals and it is essential that PowerPoint is available.

  • He will use a laptop on stage in front of him – on the podium – at all times.

  • Daniel is an animated speaker and does prefer direct eye contact with his audience.

  • He prefers a cordless lavaliere (lapel) microphone where possible.

  • Upon request, Daniel will release an edited PDF of his presentation as a take-home.

  • He does not use pre-written speeches and only uses abbreviated notes during his presentation.
