René Carayol


Specialising in business leadership, culture, and transformation, René Carayol helps leaders to inspire their people to do the things others said could not be done.

René speaks with the authority of the life-long practitioner rather than a theoretician. He’s worked with some of the Fortune 500’s top CEOs and their C-suite teams. Whilst he is a Visiting Professor at Cass Business School, René is no academic. He has served as MD, Chairman, and CEO of blue chip businesses himself. He draws from his own experience working on the boards of some of today’s most respected organisations including Marks and Spencer, Pepsi, and the UK Inland Revenue.

René Carayol is the best-selling co-author with David Firth of leadership and business culture book, Corporate Voodoo. The input reflects lessons from working closely with many of the world’s finest leaders including Bill Clinton, Mario Greco at Generali, Jim Yong Kim at The World Bank, Ralph Hamers at ING, and Maria Ramos at Barclays. He has interviewed Jack Welch of GE, Lou Gerstner at IBM, Allan Leighton, and Richard Branson.

René says : ‘my experience of working with some of the world’s best leaders of this generation; from Prime Minister David Cameron, Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, and many others, informs me that none of them are flawless or ‘all-rounders.’ But they all tend to know their 2/3 SPIKES, and have taken the time and focus to fine tune them to near Olympian standards’. René will share the magic and simplicity of the compelling SPIKE philosophy.

In his most recent book, SPIKE René asks that question – ‘what are you great at?‘ In the world of SPIKE, there are no losers any longer – because everyone has something they are great at. The book brings looks to deliver together a proven formula for personal and business development.

René s message is practical and he tells of real life experiences with inspirational effect. He will inspire your audience and show them how success is within their reach and how collaboration is a win for everyone.
