Over the last few years Toby has spoken at a number of high profile CIPD events on diversity and inclusion and its importance to business and society. He brings a wealth of his own corporate experience from his prior D&I leadership roles at Deloitte and the BBC in to his growing consulting experience working with a wide range of businesses. He is passionate on the themes and practical ways of making a difference in building more inclusive organisations that can attract all the mix of skills, experiences and talent we need. He brings these to life in a very human way, also speaking of his own personal journey as he has faced the obvious and less obvious barriers to disability and the adaptations that we all need to make in our workplaces as well as in our corporate cultures and mindsets.
Toby made a global impact with my MBA students. The tools, frameworks, and nuggets of wisdom, lessons learned – he took an incredibly massive, complex and challenging subject, and made it relateable, practical….my students will take those lessons forward in their next chapters and I know they will use this to spark positive change. That is such a rare gift Toby has — to connect on every level in a room with 30+ nationalities from four continents, 3 generations, and a million different points of view. And that is his superpower.
Toby is a hugely inspiring and compelling speaker, fully informed at the forefront of diversity thought leadership…..and all delivered in an engaging and, at times, hilarious, style. Brilliant!
