A three-star general, General Sir Graeme Lamb is the former Director of the United Kingdom’s Special Forces (UKSF). His operational experience is truly global having been deployed, or in direct support of those deployments, to virtually all the UK’s major conflicts since 1973. A no-nonsense and engaging speaker with the ability to bring to life complex issues, involve those who listen and visualize the outcomes. His views on leaders and leadership are fresh and insightful, humble, and inclusive. While his reflections on people, purpose, and pay re-prioritize our thinking. Graeme discusses leadership and the value of "looking at problems differently". Using his vast military experience, his understanding of history and human nature, he inspires audiences to reconsider their assessments of situations, the way they perceive information and even challenging their sub-conscious or reflexive take on what they know or believe.
