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.
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!
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!
