Speaking Engagements

The founder of Top Performance Consulting Ltd, Graham Jones, is an experienced speaker who can tailor the content and style of his delivery to a variety of audiences and settings.



We wanted to thank you for leading the excellent ‘Raising our Game’ creative session and for helping to ensure that the breakout sessions stayed on track at the EMEA Investment Banking Summit. The time and effort you put into developing the materials and customising the session for J.P. Morgan came through, and we really appreciate it.

The feedback we received from this summit has been very positive, and we have since created working groups to explore some of the ideas that came out of those breakout sessions. Your exercises helped get people in a creative mindset and have productive discussions about important business topics that will help improve our business and how we serve clients.

Thanks again,

Hernan & Larry

“I loved Graham Jones and this was the first time I have seen Jeff Immelt in person, so for me it will be a memorable event”

“The content centred around developing leadership qualities was utterly inspiring and I found it to be affirming. The quality of the presenters and their presentations were the best I have ever experienced. They were in a different league and I felt we were working with world leaders”

“Graham contributed to our programme on Personal Development Planning, delivering an insightful and inspiring presentation on mental toughness. Through a series of exercises, cases and analogies he was able to explain the complex phenomena that underpin personal effectiveness in a clear, understandable, and most importantly, actionable way. Graham boasts a rare blend of academic rigour and practical experience that make his interventions highly meaningful and enjoyable”

“Graham was the keynote speaker at our Leadership Conference and gave a clear, incisive, inspiring and tailored presentation which stimulated a lot of debate. He helped our team to understand the key issues, and to use this to develop strategies to provide real leadership in times of change. Many of our leaders have a scientific background and the academic underpinning to Graham’s message was an important factor in building credibility”.

“In inviting Professor Graham Jones to our first national EMCC conference in Sweden, I was convinced that we would get a high quality presentation. This is exactly what we got, regarding context that was insightful and challenging, as well as raising some interesting issues on some of the myths of the coaching community. We also got a presentation that was delivered in a more than professional way. In a humble and authentic manner Graham managed to both catch our interest to the fullest, inform us and challenge us, with stories of both failures and successes (most coach presenters does lack the mental toughness to tell stories of failures). This made the presentation to what I think can be labeled a ‘next generation’ coaching presentation!”
