Guy Browning

Guy Browning is an author and brand consultant who believes that fresh thinking is the key to competitive advantage. He is an engaging and witty conference, keynote and after-dinner speaker, who focuses on emotions, particularly in the workplace. He combines his expertise in business issues and his sense of humour to throw off conventional thinking and help find solutions to virtually any problem. He champions creativity and innovation to get groups thinking differently about their job, their company and their entire industry or sector.


About Guy Browning

Guy Browning has a background in stand-up comedy and it shows. He has personally investigated 274 emotions. He’s written about mental and emotional development in How to be Normal, Innervation: Redesigning Yourself, and Emotions for Men. His presentations are famous for bringing humour and insight to the most complex of subjects while completely engaging the whole audience in an immersive and entertaining learning environment.


Guy Browning has been dubbed the ‘David Attenborough of the business jungle.’  With a career which started in advertising copywriting, Guy quickly realised he had a natural ability to solve wider business problems. He now runs a consultancy company, helping companies birth more innovative products, services and news ways of communicating with one another.

As an author, Guy has published an array of books, one of which, ‘Weak at the Top: The Uncensored Diary of the Last Cavemanager, was adapted into a Radio 4 Sitcom starring Alexander Armstrong. His book Office Politics – How Work Really Works, was also highly popular and the same title is now the title of one of his renowned After-Dinner Speeches.   He’s also written Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade and Never Push When It Says Pull: Small Rules for Little Problems, both helping readers to deal with life’s challenges, big and small.

Guy has also composed a draft British constitution, a novel written entirely in lists, a guide to being normal and Maps of my Life, which he describes as an autobiography without the bad bits. He has also brought a new approach to cinema, writing and directing his first film financed by and starring locals from his own Oxfordshire village.

What have they got in common?  They’re all driven by emotions.

No-one works, no-one buys, and no-one really tries unless they feel like it.

If you want to know what your people feel or what your customers feel, first you have to understand how they feel, how emotions work, and what happens when you feel them.

Everyone knows how important mental health is.  Everyone wants to be more sensitive and intuitive, but at the same time business needs you to be more flexible and resilient.

They key is to understand what you feel, why you feel it and how to handle it.  Master your emotions and you have the foundations for personal happiness and mental health, at home and at work.

Gu Browning’s interactive, engaging seminars show you how our emotions work, which ones power us on and which ones hold us back.  It shows you what you’re feeling, what you didn’t know you were feeling and how you can choose to feel something completely different.

You can learn how to recognise your feelings, manage your emotions and deal more effectively with life’s personal and professional challenges.
