Top Business Speakers for Conferences in 2020

We know it’ not 2020 yet, but we’re only 2 months away until the New Year is upon us. For that reason we thought that it would be a good idea to collate a list of the best business speakers that you should see at conferences in 2020. Or if you are the founder of a business conference then why not consider one of these professionals for your speakers billing.

Uprise’s Business Speakers List

Let us jump straight into the list of our top business speakers then. Great speakers are always good for business. Our list starts with Ted Frank at Atlanta, Inc. and David Tobias at Brookings. These are just two let us continue.

The list wouldn’t be complete without the legendary businessman Richard Branson, not only do we recommend seeing him speak live, but also make sure to read his books, especially “The Virgin Way”. In general, Branson is just a fascinating person who many people look up to in business and life.

It’s only right that we now include a female entrepreneur and that is Jo Malone. Jo Malone is from the United Kingdom, she successfully sold her perfumery business to Estée Lauder in 1999 after 16 years of creating a global business. Definitely a speaker that would be great to see at any conference.

Next on our list is the writer of the famous book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, Robert Kiyosaki. That book put him on the map in the personal finance world, and now he has his own company dedicated to helping businesses at early stages and watching them grow successfully. Even though he has been around for quite some time now he is still speaking at conferences every now and then.

The longest standing dragon on the UK’s Dragons Den, Peter Jones is one of the most famous entrepreneurs in the United Kingdom and United States. He made his fortune from Phones International Group as well as retail and property. Constantly wanting to find new business ideas to invest in and help them accelerate, Jones is definitely a great person to have speaking at any conference.

We’ve decided to include another investor from the Dragons Den panel, and that is Deborah Meaden. She has tried and tested many businesses and found her success within the leisure and travel industries to start. Meaden also moved on to starting an online luxury goods business. Someone that has seen it all from a business perspective, Deborah Meaden is definitely someone you want footing your conference bill.

We wanted to include one more speaker who has recently brought out another top quality book, this time on leadership and that is Brené Brown. Not just a great author, she is also available for booking for corporate trainings, as well as talking to bigger audiences. If you don’t get the chance to see her speak at a conference, we highly recommend that you purchase her latest title that is called “Dare to Lead”, you definitely won’t be disappointed.


That is now the end of our list for who are the best business speakers to watch or recruit at a conference. We know that there are tonnes of more great business speakers, we will be adding more top speakers to this blog post as the time goes on, so make sure to check back!
