Keynote and Corporate Speaking
Neil Ashton is an authority on the media and delivers keynote speeches to a range of clients around the world.
With more than 20 years’ experience at the sharp-end of the media, travelling to every World Cup and European Championship between 2002 and 2018, he is perfectly positioned to talk about a life in sport.
Despite the attraction and glamour of the game, he also discusses the enormous difficulties and demands of the media.
He speaks with disarming honesty, surprising conferences with his candid views about the first phase of his career before going on to work with a long list of executives and corporate entities.
We asked Neil to talk about his career as part of a Crystal Palace Business Club event. I knew he would be good, but did not realise how good. His speech was excellent and brutally honest, highlighting the personal sacrifices he needed to make to climb the ladder in sports reporting. Neil speaks from the heart and I could not recommend him enough for speaking at any event in a business environment.
