Hamish Taylor

Hamish Taylor has left behind a record of significant business growth in every role he’s undertaken throughout his career. All before the age of 40, Hamish had worked for consumer goods giant Proctor and Gamble, consultancy firm Price Waterhouse and British Airways to become CEO of the channel tunnel railway Eurostar, and then Sainsbury’s Bank. As The Times rightly said, his CV “takes some beating.”


About Hamish Taylor

Hamish Taylor has challenged the normal way of doing things in each and every single position he has held throughout his career. Now, he delivers highly energetic, thought provoking and humorous keynotes to encourage other people to do the same. His speeches are based on a rare combination of real stories and a fantastic ability to inspire audiences with tailored advice and practical tools.


Hamish Taylor is regularly featured in broadcast media. Today, Hamish acts as an advisor to some of the world’s largest companies (and even Governments) assisting with specific innovation projects, customer focus and/or people leadership.

As the self-appointed “chief dumbing down officer” in each of his roles, Hamish maintains a simple approach but one that is consistently and highly effective in delivering breakthroughs.

"Brilliant inspirational speaker. Really enjoyed the session."

Ernst and Young

"It went fantastically well, I can’t begin to tell you how good Hamish was."


"Hamish’s presentations crackle with energy and original insights that make even our group of top-level, seasoned, high-achieving UK business and public sector leaders think ‘Crikey: that’s inspiring! Why didn’t I think of that!?’ And these are people who it’s hard to impress…"
