Christopher TS Harvey has spent the past two decades mastering the complexity of change and how to manage change successfully.
Since studying alongside Prince William and Kate at the University of St Andrews, Chris has been busy in the change space. Unaware at the time, he was somewhat of a trailblazer in the Change Management domain, obsessed with the human-centric, psychological nature of change. Pushing himself ever since to operate at the ‘bleeding edge’ of the change sphere.
What makes him a standout as a speaker is his ability to convert extensive academic understanding and hands on experience of complex change, into meaningful learnings and tangible takeaways for the audience to better manage through change. All done against a captivating backdrop of 80s/90s soundtracks, balloon metaphors and ‘tongue in cheek’ British humour.
Chris has been published extensively in GQ Magazine around the world, on change subjects ranging from natural disasters to workplace burnout. He’s also written for the Daily Mail, The Telegraph, HR Magazine, Business Insider, been interviewed by BBC, TalkRadio and many more. His proudest achievement will be publishing the book he continues to work on, whilst educating the next generation of change leaders through his guest lecturing.
With every editorial or speaking engagement, Chris’s aim always remains the same at its core: to ‘Demystify Change!’

The way organizations manage change has got overly complicated and often out of hand – Textbooks, extensive spreadsheets, expensive courses, accreditations, painstaking governance, reporting, etc etc etc, so many tick box exercises. Unsurprisingly 2/3 of change initiatives are deemed a failure.
Christopher TS Harvey has recognized that 80% of the value added comes from 20% of the effort. So, he wants to drill into that 20% together and “demystify change!”
Christopher TS Harvey has developed a simple 3 step approach for how you and your organization can more simply, affordably and effectively manage change.

I can fully recommend Christopher as a keynote speaker in the topic of change management and leadership. He has a great presence, the audience responded very well to him, he was organized with his presentation and on time. He was able to get the material through with humour but also deliver great content. His slides were also very professional and he has a easy to listen voice and accent so for people who don’t have English as a first language they were able to easily follow him. In preparation to the event he was also very quick to reply and gave us everything we needed such as slides on time. So in summary a great option to have in your conference and I would definitely book him again.
