Leadership | Diversity | Effective Presentations
A keynote speaker, author and presentation coach, Jay Surti is based in London UK. Having graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering then practising Law for 17 years, she realised that many professionals struggle with presenting and public speaking, something which was a big problem for her personally for more than 30 years until she found a way to overcome that – her own experiences of not being able to speak up led to missed opportunities including a career in Engineering. Her fascination for the art of effective communication led to a career change.
Jay’s main keynote topics are leadership and diversity in the workplace. She is passionate about raising awareness for and encouraging women to take up senior leadership roles. She has served as a member of the Executive Board for Women in Banking and Finance and is currently the Head of Mentoring. She is also a Council Member for the Women’s Engineering Society and sits on the Governing Board for the University of Dundee.
Jay works with senior Executives across many different industry sectors in mastering their presentation skills and connecting with their audience. She has written three books on effective presentation skills and teaches CMI (Chartered Management Institute) and ILM (The Institute of Leadership and Management) Management and Leadership courses.
“Jay presented at our recent Women in Insurance event and she was superb – an engaging professional who our attendees described as inspiring! Very interesting and thought provoking, made me determined to take a step into the unknown.”
