Keynote Excerpt

Keynote Excerpt

Henry Patterson started his official business journey at the age of nine when he launched children’s brand Not Before Tea. This was based on storybook he had written entitled The Adventures of Sherb and Pip. All the characters in the book were bought to life through products such as bags, wash bags and soft toys. Henry’s story has been in the press at home and abroad including Forbes magazine. He has also made several television appearances. He was the youngest person ever to be interviewed on CNBC’s breakfast business show Squawk Box, he was named One to Watch by the Independent and he appeared on The BBC Show with Richard Branson. Today the products are sold internationally and Henry has just secured investment to grow the brand further.

At 12 years old, Henry was a keynote speaker at the prestigious Retail Week Live event at the 02 in London, where he shared the stage with the likes of Facebook and Google.

Henry uses his childhood experiences as the foundation for his talks. His school life has been tough and he was bullied because he didn’t fit in. As a consequence, he developed a stutter overnight. His journey to re-discover his voice is truly inspirational.

Despite battling a stammer, he developed a love of public speaking and has since spoken alongside some of the worlds top motivational speakers on stages in Malaysia, Singapore, Italy, Berlin, and Vietnam.

In May 2018, Henry launched his first business book entitled Young & Mighty, aimed at young people, 10 to 14, who are starting to think about their future and starting to make sense of what motivates them. It covers some of the big issues that young people face: money, self-esteem, finding your voice, education, and creativity. It particularly appeals to those struggling to fit in. Young and Mighty promotes confidence and thoughtfulness, not just material ambition.

His experiences have taught Henry that children can discover their own version of success. The book provides examples from business, the arts and sport contributed such as Sir Richard Branson and Mike Krieger.

Finding My Voice

Henry’s story from selling manure at the age of 4 years old to battling with a stutter, being excluded from school, then going on to build a children’s band, write a book with leaders such as Sir Richard Branson, getting investments and everything in between.

 

Lessons I Have Learnt in Business

Business advice as you have never heard it before. Sometimes all it takes is to see things through a child’s eyes to find the solution. You certainly will look at things from a different perspective after listening to Henry!

 

Sometimes You Just Have to Jump!

What to do when everyone says you can’t? What to do when you get bullied so much, you physically lose your voice? How do you cope when you read thousands of comments from people personally insulting you?

A talk about overcoming adversity and breaking through barriers.
