Take your team on an adventure


Are you looking for a professional Guest Speaker to engage, inspire and entertain an audience?

Kevin Biggar presenting

Hi, I’m Kevin Biggar. I’m a motivational speaker who presents at industry conferences and corporate events in Auckland and throughout New Zealand and Australia. I talk about how to take on large challenges, improve teamwork, mental toughness and about how to get the most out of yourself and your team.

You might recognise me from my adventures, rowing across the Atlantic and trekking to the South Pole, you might have seen my books on the shelves, or in my most recent role as co-presenter of TVNZ’s ‘First Crossings’ and Intrepid NZ.

I work hard to receive the highest ratings from conference goers. As your  keynote speaker I make sure you get a dynamic, engaging (and slightly quirky) presentation. Anecdotes that your people will remember, insights that will make you stop and think, and images that will stick in your head. No jargon, no sugary self-help double speak. Just frameworks and techniques that leave you energised and more effective in your work and life.

As your after dinner speaker I make sure that you get the fast-paced, light hearted entertainment that is guaranteed to get your clients and staff laughing and feeling inspired.

Why Choose Kevin?


Why Choose Kevin?

Because you can be confident that I can deliver a presentation or workshop that will enthral and inform your audience and leave a lasting impact on your organisation.

The secret sauce is my adventures – I won the trans-Atlantic rowing race and trekked unsupported to the South Pole. And most recently I've been the co-host of TVNZ's 'First Crossings', and then 'Intrepid NZ' – tv shows about re-creating some of the epic adventures of trail-blazing pioneers in NZ. 

The ups and downs of preparation, the thrills and spills of the execution, the setbacks and the successes of these adventures provide plenty of gripping drama, and edge of the seat excitement. That creates a powerful learning environment and lots of fantastic 'hooks' to hang messages on. It doesn't matter if the audience are CEOs, sales people or students they spend their time leaning forward and taking notes or leaning back and laughing.

But I would say that wouldn't I? The real proof of the pudding is what my clients say!

See Kevin in Action

If you've watched 'First Crossings' or 'Intrepid NZ' then you've seen me presenting. But here's a clip of me presenting when I'm not wearing old clothes. I'm talking about how to deal with the ‘dip’ in motivation that you typically experience when in the middle of big challenges.. 

Here I am presenting to secondary school student leaders for Inspire NZ in July 2014. Only had 25 minutes so speaking a lot faster than normal!

1. Fearlessly Facing Challenges

Few things stay the same in business. Competitors get faster and smarter. Consumers want more for less. To take your organisation to the next level of performance will often require setting and achieving audacious commercial goals – from achieving dramatically raised sales targets to rapidly developing new products.

2. Energising and Uniting Teams

There is plenty of evidence that shows that teams produce better results than individuals – but only when a team is functioning well! Everyone has experienced the frustration, aggravation and productivity loss of being in a team that is dysfunctional. If the team dynamic is starting to turn sour it is best to address it early before problems become entrenched.

4. Mental Toughness

Every organisation faces times where performance plateaus, when the work force is firmly within their comfort zone. At these times what is needed is a bit of a circuit breaker, something to knock the problems and challenges back into perspective. Something to get people excited  about how much more there is to achieve. This presentation provides the steps for how to breakthrough the plateaus and get the mindset to achieve even more

Nothing worthwhile is easy. Particularly in highly competitive markets, setbacks happen frequently, whether they come through external shocks or through shortcomings of the individual. Perseverance is essential. In many areas of life the single most important factor success is mental toughness or ‘resilience’ – the ability to bounce back after shocks and setbacks.
