How to persuade anyone to do (almost) anything - Lee Warren #31

How to persuade anyone to do (almost) anything - Lee Warren

Lee Warren is a keynote speaker and workshop facilitator and he is author of the award-winning book: A Busy Person's Guide to Great Presenting.

Lee has had a pretty unconventional career path as he started out as a professional magician, performing at one point for the royal family.

One of Lee's popular keynote topics is 'How to Persuade Anyone to do Anything!' And that's the topic that we dive into here.

About Lee

Lee was a professional magician for 20 years, is a member of the world-famous Magic Circle and was described by Prince William as ‘absolutely amazing’.

A lover of live theatre, Lee has written theatre works for The Almeida Theatre, and been a commissioned writer at The Royal Opera House. Fluent in Spanish, Lee is very good at playing the piano badly!

In a previous life, Lee was a sales director at News International and he now combines this background in magic, theatre and sales to give presentations, keynotes, workshops and coaching to firms including Deloitte, Shell, Laing O'Rourke, Roche, EY, Barclays Wealth and HSBC, helping people to become more persuasive and connected, sell more, present better and increase their ability to get their messages across confidently to colleagues and clients.

Over time, Lee was increasingly invited not just to perform magic to clients, but to speak at their events. Realising that this was his 'true niche', in 2010 he become a full-time conference speaker and workshop leader and since then has spoken all over the globe at hundreds of events.

In 2018, Lee's first book was published – ‘The Busy Person’s Guide To Great Presenting’. In March 2019, it was the highly-commended runner-up in the 'Business Book Of The Year Awards'.

He calls it his ‘first’ because he has four more planned in his head. Now, he just needs to find the time to write them…
