Key Speaker:

Rikki Arundel
Rikki Arundel is a professional speaker, coach and diversity trainer and was the founder of the UK Professional Speaking Association. Her previous career as a financial services technology speaker came to an abrupt end as a result of her decision to change gender in 2002. Faced with considerable discrimination she changed her field of expertise, completing a master’s degree in Gender Research at Hull University and establishing herself as a diversity expert.

Since then she has focused on delivering keynote presentations, workshops and coaching on presentation skills and gender equality. Rikki works extensively with public sector, community and commercial organisations who are keen to raise awareness of and tackle gender equality, unconscious bias and particularly transgender issues. She has developed a reputation for engaging audiences through her use of entertaining and inspiring stories.
