What he offers
How he presents
Articulate and charismatic, Larry is globally recognised as a leading authority on the future trends of customer relationships, leadership, business transformation, globalisation, talent management as well as developing effective people and culture in organisations. His presentations are inspirational and highly motivating.
Larry Hochman is one of the most popular keynote speakers in the world. He was selected as “The European Business Speaker of the Year” in 2001. He previously held a number of senior positions at British Airways and the loyalty management company Airmiles in both New York and London. His roles at British Airways included Director of Customer Service & Director of People & Culture. Larry was the first person in Britain to hold this title.
A pioneer of corporate mentoring in Europe, he has been the personal mentor to many global Chief Executives. In his book ‘The Relationship Revolution’, he argues that at this defining moment commercial success will not be determined by size. Instead, it will be determined by focus, and competence, execution and delivery. In an age where you’re unlikely to win in the long-term by competing on price, and where products can easily be copied, customer relationships are your true source of sustained competitive advantage. To survive, he argues, businesses will need to focus on something that cannot be replicated by anyone else.

“Larry gave an excellent and very relevant speech on the subject of ‘Improving Service Delivery to Customers and Lifting Team Spirit’. It was highly engaging and the audience response was very positive.”
“Larry’s startling appraisal of the way business is likely to change in the next few years was sobering and thought provoking. This is exactly what is needed to help our business managers ‘think outside the box’ about ways in which their own markets may change and how they can adapt themselves to exploit the opportunities that presents. At the same time his messages in so many different ways fit well with the overall ‘Think Customer’ theme for this year’s Forum.”
“Larry is an excellent speaker who gives a polished performance with perfect style.”
