International Speaker

With over 25 years of experience, speaking to hundreds of thousands on the big stage, Wes is uniquely positioned to inspire any crowd.

Inspiring, thought-provoking, relatable... (and quite funny*)

Over the past decade, Wes Linden has become one of the best-known speakers on international stages across the Direct Selling and entrepreneurial space.

From university dropout to building and leading a business of over 10,000 associates which now exceeds $400m in annual sales, his advice, insights, and stories provide hard-won lessons based on genuine hands-on experience.

One of the most frequent compliments he gets is how clear and easy to understand his lessons are to help demystify the journey of success to make it attainable for everyone in the audience. When Wes started out, a trait he disliked immensely was how complicated and patronising speakers are to those who are just starting their journey, something that Wes knew one day he would work to correct

His authentic, actionable advice and stories are relatable and authentic, and have won him many return visits to conferences and events. Audiences love his down-to-earth approach and typical British self-effacing humour.

*Wes told us we had to say he was funny...

What topics can Wes help your audience with?

Wes has a particular specialty in building a culture of belonging; creating loyalty; empowering new leaders; motivating individuals based on their character; recognition techniques based on personality type; managing difficult conversations; dealing with big personalities; supporting the growth of new heroes whilst not displacing long-standing, legacy leadership; and conflict resolution.

As an author his books have been long-running top performers, one of which was #1 Best Seller in its category for over 60 consecutive months - more than five years - and topped the charts in the UK and the USA! Having been translated into a number of languages, it was this which opened the door to many more international speaking opportunities. Having spoken for audiences in over twenty countries now worldwide, he’s well-accustomed to different cultures and working with translators.

Want to hear from Wes on your stage?

Whilst Wes is fully-focussed on growing his UK-based direct selling organisation - which is now a FTSE250 business; since retiring from soccer refereeing he has accepted speaking requests in-person and online, generally outside of the UK. He is proud of the fact that he is still mostly operational in his UK business and turns down more speaking offers than he accepts, and is not someone that says yes to everything - preferring to assess each offer on its merits based on the credibility of the business, brand and leadership of the company to ensure they’re of the strong and authentic calibre of his own business, rather than lending good influence to anyone with a cheque book.

As you’d imagine, such arrangements are very limited and not inexpensive. If you think this is something you’d like to learn more about, please click the contact us below.

He struggled, made mistakes, learned from them, tested new approaches, tried new things, and ultimately came up with what you are now holding in your hands. None of this is theory or speculation. This is the real-world stuff Wes has learned building a large team.
