The Value of

Positive Risk-taking

Roger presents authentic, expert-qualified, engaging insights, with punchy views grounded in deep practical experience

Event sponsors praise Dr Roger Miles's 'stand-out skills' in engaging with delegates on the spot. As well as 'truly shining when handling the toughest questions', he uniquely weaves in 'live' content as he speaks, making his talks fresh and immediate.


Real-time content can include a news story that's breaking at that exact moment; a digest of an earlier panel discussion; and/or an alternative take on points just made by a previous speaker.

His unique, improvisational style and live interview experience mean Roger is comfortable engaging in any interview and broadcast media sessions around conference events; short promos, webinars, introductory workshops or end-of-event summaries.

Following the Rules: Roger Miles, culture and conduct guru, on what regulators and firms are getting wrong in their efforts to police bad behaviour

One of our Most Listened-to Podcasts of the Year: Today's guest sets out how the market watchdog is falling short in its efforts to clamp down on poor behaviour amongst bosses. He details what regulators are doing now to track the culture of firms under their watch, and what those firms are getting wrong in their response. And he explains how behavioural science could be applied to making rules more effective and easier to obey.
