Over the years, I have moderated and chaired events ranging from private dinners through to arena-sized conferences. And since the pandemic, my experience has extended into the virtual space.
I am engaged when the tone of the discussion needs to be of a strategic nature. My work with FT Live over the years has played a significant role in understanding how to make high stake events work well.
Such events often need to be carefully choreographed and thus they need to be managed with care, particularly when the panelllists or delegates are garrulous.
If you are looking to move minds through high impact events and panel discussions, then let’s talk.

What they are saying…
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
