Jamie Susskind is a renowned speaker. As a teenager, he was ranked the best debater in the world and became the second commoner in English history to speak at the opposition dispatch box of the House of Lords. At the University of Oxford, he received the Edward Tomlinson Memorial Prize for the best speech delivered at the Oxford Union.

While qualifying as a barrister (courtroom advocate) in England, he was awarded the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn’s most prestigious advocacy prize. By the age of 21 he had written speeches for US Senators and British MPs and run public speaking masterclasses for executives and activists around the world. He is equally comfortable delivering set-piece speeches to large crowds as he is in discussion in more intimate settings.
