Innovation, business and inspirational keynotes by Pierre du Plessis
I am jaded, I have been in the industry a very long time (20 years feels like a lifetime), I have seen a lot, heard a lot, had my intelligence challenged and my mind bent, and often been bored. There are not many speakers out there that make me stop (mid running around on an event) and listen. Pierre is one of those. Kelly McGillivray – The Squad Events
Pierre du Plessis is most probably one of the best speakers I have encountered, anywhere in the world. I have been lucky enough to see the likes of Nir Eyal, Eric Qualman, the great Tony Dungy, even that guy Bill Clinton, but do I do anything different after listening to them? Nope.
Pierre du Plessis is a class act….and pretty damn world class. I do walking meetings now. I search in “darker” places for insights now, I randomly pick cinema numbers and watch that movie sometimes, now when travelling I stroll around a city or town and try to also observe the world. I do stuff differently, both with my team at KFC Africa and in my personal life, because of Pierre du Plessis.
His talks are like those movies you simply will watch over and over and over. I am a fan. He is not a typical “speaker circuit” guy, that sounds like a radio recording. Pierre is real. Pierre is authentic. Above all, Pierre lands a message so delicately, that weeks later little nuggets from a talk will still pop up in your head like popping candy.
Pierre is also a nice guy. And I like nice guys. Our business do nice….when often in the rest of the business world nobody does nice.
Think different. Apple said it. Pierre makes you do it.
Pierre, like all good trend spotters, looks at the world with infinite curiosity and an open mind. As such, he has a knack of pin pointing a trend on the rise, but most importantly its roots and trajectory. Without these two elements you don’t have context, and Pierre has the ability to provide that all important context
