Celebrity Speaker Kevin Biggar

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 spotted me 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?

Why Choose Kevin as your next keynote speaker?

Because you can be confident that I will 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. 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 New Zealand. 

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. This 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 will 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's a brief introduction about my latest workshop.

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

Fearlessly Facing Challenges 

Few things stay the same in business. Competitors get faster and smarter. Consumers want more for less.

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 for success is mental toughness or ‘resilience’ – the ability to bounce back after shocks and setbacks ... [more]

Energising and Uniting Teams

There is plenty of evidence to show 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 ... [more]

Taking Performance to the Next level

Every organisation faces times when 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 break through the plateaus and get the mindset to achieve even more ... [more]

Workshops (Half Day)

When you're looking to make a lasting impact on your team, and empower them with powerful tools and concepts that will significantly boost their performance.

This intensive half day workshop identifies and confronts the internal road blocks to achieving audacious goals. It provides your team with a set of tools and insights to help them become emotionally connected to their challenge and make a step change in performance ...[more]

Mental Toughness - Resilience Workshop

This is the workshop version of the Mental Toughness.

The key concepts and techniques in this workshop can be challenging. While they can be introduced in a keynote, a half day workshop allows a chance for them to be digested, practised and embedded. ...[more]
