Interview Hosting

Do you want your keynote speakers to truly shine past their on-stage delivery?  Post speech video interviews are the way to do it.  

Combining research, domain expertise, inspiration and asking better questions is the way to make them shine – our Managing Director Philip Bateman specialises in this and would love to be involved in your next event.

Through the last 11+ years of our work which you can see via the Portfolio, and now regularly interviewing world leaders in business, politics, technology and community via the Smarter Impact YouTube and Linkedin show, his experience is always growing and he is excited to learn, share and do more with amazing people!

If you would like to open up your guests in front of a live audience in an insightful, respectful and engaging way, Philip is happy to act as your event MC, click here for more.
