Many regulated and professional services businesses are still entrenched in archaic modes of communication with customers, staff and stakeholders. They are perplexed at the flourishing digital world - frustrated, anxious, agitated and impotent at how to join it.

Hello, I'm Philip Calvert - a specialist social media sales speaker helping sales professionals, sales teams and regulated businesses to leverage LinkedIn and Social Media as part of their sales, marketing and communication strategy.

I created the world's first social networking site for Financial Services professionals, and bring real-world experience and a startling 'behind the scenes' view to using Social Media in regulated industries and to increase sales.

My conference speeches are energetic, high content and fun. Every speech is tailored to suit the needs of the client.

I have delivered speeches on Social Media to directors at Hitachi, Eden Project, Estee Lauder, Crossrail, Blockbuster, Royal College of Surgeons, DTI, Del Monte, Oracle, River Island, Scottish & Newcastle, BUPA, Zurich, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, BP, University of London, British Medical Assoc, National Express, Oxfam, Ford, George Wimpey, Domino's Pizza, HM Prison Service, Littlewoods Gaming, Fullers, Food Standards Agency, Police Complaints Commission, Miele, IFP, PFS, John Lewis and many others.

I'm looking to connect with:

* Meeting planners, conference organisers and speaker bureaus
* Sales Directors and organisers of Sales conferences
* Financial advisers and financial brands
* Professional services providers

Testimonials (5)

Rebecca Allen, Director, Financial Services | BrightTALK

I first invited Phil to speak to our audience of Financial Advisers in the UK, on how to successfully leverage LinkedIn, and he had an overwhelmingly positive reception. After he had returned to the webinar platform a number of times, I asked him to present to our burgeoning financial advisor community in the US. He shared his expertise in an accessible, entertaining way and immediately engaged with a US audience as successfully. One thing that really stands out about Phil's thought leadership is that he always gives the audience action items that they can implement right away, to see immediate results. Suffice to say he is invited back!

Lee Clarke, Toptrak IFA Group | How to Leverage LinkedIn and Social Media to Increase Sales

First and foremost, Phil knows how to engage with his audience. As a truly professional speaker, rather than simply an expert who speaks, Phil manages the pace and intensity of his presentation so the audience assimilates the whole message. So a presentation from Phil Calvert combines up to the minute information, delivered in an entertaining and memorable way. Phil takes trouble to do the preliminary research, which is so vital in understanding the knowledge level and decision-making ability of his audience. he turns up on time and he follows up. We would certainly book him again.

Ann Hawkins, Event organiser | Inspirational Speakers

Just wanted to say thanks for the talk last night - several people who haven't missed an event in 18 months have universally declared you to be the best speaker we've had so far. Your talk encouraged so much active networking afterwards that I had a hard job getting everyone to go home.

Martin Trenchard, Head of Corporate Client Management | Standard Life

I saw Philip present at a conference in January and he really is very, very good.

Chris Kelly, Director | Hanson Wealth

I fully expect to look back in 5 years time and regards my first contact with Philip as a major milestone in my life. One week later and I have alrady gained an incredible amount of knowledge. Fantastic!
