Former stand-up comedian, Parliamentary candidate
& Board Director in British PLCs.
A Law graduate of Christ Church College Oxford, uniquely Will is formally recognised by industry peers as the “world’s most entertaining market researcher”! He will no doubt be a very entertaining speaker. For example, he has spoken on the following topics:
Waiting for a Breakthrough and a Breakdown Truck.
A thousand days fighting a marginal seat in the North East for the Conservatives, at the wheel of a malfunctioning 1970s British car prone to breaking down with senior Cabinet Ministers on board. Will makes many new acquaintances (usually ‘very nice men’ from the AA) and suffers many amusing setbacks and elusive dawns.
Global Britain, here we come!
As we Brexit, the future is a Global Britain – leading and trading with the world. Will Goodhand shares comic misadventures and relevant lessons from a business career spent looking out: from Canada and China to inner-Mongolia where he advised that the rest of the world would not be so enthusiastic about Genghis Khan vodka. A chance to hear from a leader in exporting services from UK PLC to the world.

25 years on from Rwanda’s horrific genocide, the country is now a thriving and beautiful success story. Behind the headlines, a new generation stands on its own two feet. An inspiring account of recovery and entrepreneurialism – and the difference made to new businesses by Conservative party volunteers; not least a group of genocide widows making a living creating beautiful hand-made jewellery.
