He has had extensive radio and TV experience – he has appeared on BBC TV News speaking on recessionary trends and is often on BBC radio. His views are also regularly quoted in the business and mainstream press.

He can provide advice for businesses about how to move forward and the measures that are needed – in particular, leadership, innovation and managing the dynamics of the global economy.

Stephen Archer is an entrepreneur, Business Graduate and Chartered Director.

He has three theme areas on which he brings his expertise and insight:

1. The economy – UK, EU and global. What’s going on and how it affects you
An informative, up to date and humorous guide to the state of the UK, EU, US and global economy and where it is going next. The big questions around China, the BRICs and debt crisis in Greece, Europe and America. How these affect your organisation and planning.

2. Customer engagement and innovation. How to outperform your competition and drive growth through sales and marketing. Businesses continue to have a tough time winning and keeping customers – most industries are more competitive than ever and yet there are success stories and approaches to customers that any business can take and it need not be expensive. Stephen’s talk will lift the lid on the mistaken accepted wisdoms and the opportunity for every business to improve customer profitability by 30% in one year!

3. Leadership – How to attain it
The holy grail for business today and yet so elusive. Why? Senior leaders are being far more than they were twenty years ago and yet the hunger for organisational effectiveness has not improved. This is a lateral look at what leadership is, what the threats are to it and how to attain leadership skills throughout the organisation so to that you don’t need an expensive CEO at all!
