International Keynote Speaker

“I had the pleasure of meeting with Harold in Lisbon earlier this year, where I moderated a panel on which he was a member. This is one very smart fellow, with deep insight into human psychology and the anthropology of the workplace. Anyone who’s interested in organisational change should pay attention.” —Hung Lee, Co-founder & CEO at Workshape.io

As a keynote speaker, I prefer to deeply engage with my clients. I will spend at least one full day at your conference, attend sessions, participate in panels, and engage in conversations with participants. The same applies for online conferences, and I have spoken at many of these. For example, I often present a keynote on a select topic and follow this up with a short workshop to discuss the subject deeper with those most interested.

“I have to say that it stands out for me as being one of the most memorable webinars that I’ve ever attended. It wasn’t just that the content was awesome, what really made it memorable was your well paced authoritative delivery.”

“Again, inspirational start to the day — awesome. Enjoyed the challenge to the mind and the wide sources Harold drew on.”

“Webinar was exceptionally enlightening. Information on Communities was worth every minute. Harold Jarche is an excellent speaker.”

I speak and write on a variety of topics

Contact me for a custom engagement that is leading-edge but always pragmatic.

I also offer online Masterclasses
