The Standards Guy (UK), Personal, Happiness and Success

Keynote | Global

You have heard of superstar business gurus who seem to have led a charmed life, having success after success from their twenties and through the whole of their lives. They have lots to share from their experience and rightly so.
Derek Mills did things differently; he was a failure for most of his business career but discovered a way that turned the whole of his life and business around. This is what makes his story so compelling. Derek is the everyman who became an internationally renowned professional speaker, business guru and bestselling author through the development of unique guiding principles. He did it from a standing start without any of the corporate attachments that those other business gurus had all of their lives.

Derek has given talks and workshops on four continents, at some of the largest business conferences and gatherings, including; the Million Dollar Round Table, St James’s Place Wealth Management Plc (FTSE100 Company) and some of the world’s leading financial services and insurance companies and organisations. He has spoken in the US, South Africa, Europe, Indonesia, India, Dubai, the Caribbean and the UK and has been invited to speak in Russia and Mexico. He combines his personal story of his staggering financial turnaround, with key insights gained from decades working within the private, public and not for profit sectors.

Derek challenges the status quo with a deeply empathetic, captivating, engaging and probing style. He enables the audience to discover answers in today’s turbulent times and aggressive markets.

“Derek Mills is one of the most engaging, authentic speakers I have ever heard. His stage presence is outstanding and it allows you to connect with him in a way that you don’t with other speakers. His story and the content that he shares is totally unique.” Shaa Wasmund MBE, #1 bestselling author of ‘Stop Talking, Start Doing’ and ‘Do Less, Get More’
