Deri Llewellyn-Davies is The Strategy Man. He is a speaker, entrepreneur and author of two books – ‘Life’s Great Adventure’ and ‘BGI Strategy on a Page™’, which went straight to #1 on Amazon.
His unique, accessible and tangible ‘Strategy on a Page’ methodology helps leaders in both FTSE 500 and entrepreneurial companies to take their businesses (and themselves) to the next level. Whatever issue a company is facing – from funding shortages to management fall-outs, redundancy to bankruptcy – his personal experience and proven strategic approach enable growth and greater commercial success.
Deri has been speaking to audiences around the world for the last decade, bringing a sense of real life and personal experience to every engagement. From an entrepreneurial, working class background he then built a successful consultancy career with corporate giants including Mars and Cable & Wireless before going on to establish his own extremely successful start-up, Business Growth International. Deri has worked with more than 200 businesses and independent entrepreneurs, owned 20 businesses of his own, earned an MBA and sits on the board of the charity Global Angels.
Stories from these experiences are woven throughout his presentations, bringing real-life, relevant and timely examples that audiences respond to and learn from.
One of the truly unique aspects of his speeches comes from his love of adventure – Deri has climbed five of the highest mountains in the world, run the Marathon des Sables, completed the legendary Ironman and survived the devastating earthquake that hit Everest in the spring of 2015 during a summit attempt. Having approached all of these challenges with the same strategic discipline and rigour that he applies to the businesses he builds and nurtures, ‘strategy’ is no longer a dry or difficult concept, but instead something that can lead anyone to ask better questions of themselves and their business, and believe that anything is possible.
Deri covers topics across the whole spectrum of strategy, which includes sales, marketing, operations, finance and people all of which are strongly linked to purpose, vision and values.
Speaking themes include:
- Your Business Blind Spots: finance & people strategy
- The Tree of Talent – how to recruit & structure your company
- Using Strategy on a Page to raise finance
- Sales Strategy
- Business strategy with purpose
- Why Business Plans are dead

Delegates always leave with valuable, practical and actionable strategies they can go away and instantly apply, alongside a healthy dose of inspiration and motivation to achieve more than they had previously considered possible.
