Duncan Stevens Speaker Biography

Duncan Stevens is a professional keynote speaker who helps brands, companies, teams and leaders influence more effectively, collaborate more productively and sell more consistently. He is the founder of the Influence Association, the Author of best-selling book 'Effective Influence', a professional mentalist and a successful entrepreneur.

He is not just your typical speaker. His keynotes go beyond 'raise your hand'. These are highly interactive that deliver massive value to your events. With over 10 years of experience, delivering hundreds of keynotes to over 50,000 people across multiple countries and hundreds of industries, Duncan is a truly seasoned professional delivering tailored keynotes to unlock people’s influencing, collaboration and selling potential to help drive bottom-line results.

Duncan draws from his experience as a professional mentalist to bookend the keynote with a short 5-minute interactive mentalism performance that involves the delegates and hangs the bigger message of the keynote on. This is fun, engaging and sets the keynote off to the perfect start as people engage more when they are having fun. Immediately after, he then facilitates a 2-minute interactive experiment where all the delegates take part in an influence and collaboration experiment in teams of two. Duncan then shares his content. This fun, humorous and inspiring keynote is all underpinned by behavioral science so that you can feel confident that anything he shares will (when employed) will actually work.

After sharing practical, bite-size, tips, tools and strategies focused around influence persuasion and collaboration, Duncan then invites the delegates to revisit this 2-minute experiment, choosing some of the strategies he's shared - and you will find that more people are able to influence, persuade and collaborate in the second time this experiment is conducted than were at the start of the keynote - experiencing a real physical and tangible change in their performance. This leaves them feeling, inspired, empowered, confident and ready to take action.

Duncan's keynotes create an instant impact, helping delegates embrace new skills, and change perspectives, with a focus on driving results and unlocking their untapped potential without compromising their values. Each speech is tailored to each client, using their language with their specific goals and challenges in mind.

Not only that but Duncan also prides himself as an easy-to-work-with speaker and is another reason why clients love to work with him.
