Stuart Knight Speaking Presentations:

Four Conversations for Success +

Anyone can talk business.  When was the last time you talked life? How do you feel when the guy behind the counter remembers your name?  Why do people work hard for some managers and not others? Do your clients look forward to seeing you? What do you know about your customers that your competition doesn’t? Do you see them?  They’re everywhere. That’s right, they are called people and if you don’t really know them, you’re just another company trying to survive. (Also offered as a workshop) --

The Choice: Six Decisions All Leaders Make +

Do you know why some companies are more successful than others? Here’s a hint. It has nothing to do with their people waking up earlier, working harder or having prestigious degrees. They simply have leaders who make six decisions every single day.

Let’s face it, life can get hectic sometimes. Correction. Life is hectic all of the time! Between constant meetings, phone calls, emails, reading reports, going to the gym and dropping the kids off at school we can easily be distracted from the core decisions all leaders must make in order to reach our full potential.

During this high energy, entertaining and hilarious keynote presentation, Stuart shines a new and exciting perspective on the fundamental building blocks that have always propelled leaders forward, while reminding them of what they need to do today to live their best life. By touching on subjects such as fear, anxiety, stress, goal setting, creativity, innovation and resiliency Stuart Knight takes your audience on a rollercoaster of emotions and ideas leaving them inspired to get back to the basics and take a major step forward toward greater success!

This keynote is also offered as a workshop. --

More Human, More Often: Connecting After a Pandemic +

Meaningful human connection was in crisis well before the pandemic, and now that people are coming back together it’s needed more than ever before! After 25 years of speaking to audiences around the world about the importance of personal relationships, Stuart’s new keynote takes an even deeper dive into the science of human connection and how it is the number one factor to organizational success and personal well-being.

For decades the world has been experiencing a crisis in human connection, and it’s been the root cause of every challenge faced by humanity. On a macro level, it has created international conflicts, national divisiveness, and community breakdown. Individually, our disconnection from each other is behind a wide range of physical and mental ailments, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, greater stress and so much more. Organizationally, meaningful human connection is the biggest influencer on productivity, collaboration, innovation, absenteeism, equity, inclusion, and diversity.

Each day, forward-thinking leaders within governments, companies, and organizations are embracing the exciting reality that in order to thrive, human connection must be given priority over everything else. In his latest keynote, Stuart Knight provides a scientifically backed “wake up call” for people ready to harness the power of personal relationships as a true path to success and happiness. In this hilarious, entertaining, and deeply thought-provoking presentation, Stuart Knight unveils the elephant in the room we all knew was there but didn’t know how to see. By incorporating meaningful human connection into your everyday culture and promoting powerful conversations among your team, Stuart will help you reach your goals while changing the world. How cool is that?!

Offered both virtually and in a live setting with the option of increased audience participation (subject to time available in the agenda). --

Stuart Knight has an uncanny ability to connect with his audience. At one moment you are laughing hysterically, and the next moment you are on the edge of your seat as he shares profound insights into the world we live in.

Stuart is an amazing talent – inspirational, motivational, wickedly creative, and best of all funny! I highly recommend his shows or corporate speaking engagements to everyone or anyone.


–Redux Media

I received GREAT feedback on your session. The majority of the delegates have been coming to this for over 10 years and many people told me personally you were the best speaker we have ever had.

–Canadian Employee Relocation Council

We just had Stuart Knight as our opening keynote for a leadership retreat and he was the highlight of the conference.  The audience loved his high energy, humor and relevant messages that they use every day in their businesses.  He was a joy to work with and took the time to make the talk personalized to our industry.  I would recommend Stuart to any organization ready to teach their team to how to build better relationships!

–Eye Recommend

Stuart’s presentations are a combination of entertainment, education, inspiration and fun. They provide a unique environment for individuals to maximize their inter-connections thus promoting ideas and alliances, while generating real momentum within the group.


Stuart Knight had the challenge, at our national conference, of engaging an audience of franchisees and head office staff who have ‘heard it all before’ in terms of motivational speakers.  He knocked it out of the park.  Stuart’s command of the stage, his masterful skills as a moderator and his entertaining style of delivery compelled people to see things in new ways — and to think about and experience the art of interaction and the power of meaningful conversation as critical success factors in their business and personal lives.  I would highly recommend Stuart as a keynote speaker for anyone looking to engage attendees, entertain and offer them actionable insights for living a fuller and richer life.
