Chris Roebuck

Expert at transforming lives through leadership

Chris gives insight based on his unique hand-on global experience as a former Army Officer, Global Head of Leadership for UBS, Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership at CASS Business School and HR Most Influential Thinker and author.


Every day we go to work it’s in the hope that everything runs perfectly. But that rarely ever happens. Events blow us off track or distract us creating challenges we need to beat. Chris, calls these orgmines, organisational landmines. If ignored, they build into disasters. Recall the Financial Crisis, Kodaks decline, Erons scandal and tragedy of the Gulf of Mexico? Started small, got ignored, blew up. 

To beat these challenges Chris delivers inspiring and interactive keynotes, both remote and face to face, which enable audiences to realise and then unleash their own hidden potential to start to make a difference and succeed as soon as they leave the room. All powered by “Explosive energy”.   

That’s because Chris has a unique perspective and step by step system to make success happen day to day based on a unique combination of perspectives 

  • Financial insight as an economist 
  • Experience as a leader in business, military and government. 
  • His role as Honorary Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership and 9 times HR Most Influential Thinker award nominee which allows him to combine his experience with leading insights and action from around the world.  
  • His 2019 qualification as a neuroscience accredited executive coach so he can show his audiences how to use their full brain power, and that of their people, to make success happen.

Chris has been quoted as a business leadership expert globally in the Harvard Business Review China, FT, Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, New York Times, Business Week, Time Magazine, Washington Post, Times of India, Straits & Gulf Times and many other titles. He judges business awards and has done over 350 TV interviews on leadership and business on BBC, Sky, Bloomberg, Al Zazeera, CNBC & CNN.
