“Hayley’s contribution was vital – she demonstrated that Diversity & Inclusion isn’t an HR issue but a company-wide opportunity.”  Aspect Capital

Hayley Barnard is a prominent keynote speaker, consultant and trainer to top-level executives throughout the UK and Europe. She is a subject matter expert on Diversity and Inclusion, Inclusive Leadership and Unconscious Bias. She advises boards of corporations on how they can become more profitable and innovative through inclusion of diversity.

Hayley combines the latest research on inclusion of diversity with first-hand experience, helping a wide range of companies establish what inclusion looks like for them, what their business case is and how to move the agenda forward. Hayley’s assignments include:

  • Designing an Inclusive Leadership program for the top 600 leaders at Deutsche Telekom/T-Mobile (delivered via Webex in groups of 15-20)
  • Delivering a change management program for BAE Systems focusing on ‘embracing difference’ and ‘collaboration’ as a move away from traditional communications around Inclusion & Diversity
  • Providing board level briefings and senior leadership training for clients including Aspect Capital, Legal and General Investment Management, Lloyds, Skanska, Morgan Sindall, De La Rue, T-Systems and Babcock.

Hayley is a prolific keynote speaker providing entertaining and inspirational speeches for company conferences, annual meetings and associations. Her aim is always to be highly practical and demonstrate that everyone can immediately make an impact on how inclusive their place of work is through a number of small actions.

Hayley believes developing leaders to be more inclusive in their leadership and management style is essential for any organisation that wants to see significant progress in diversity and inclusion (D&I). Yet many leaders have D&I fatigue – they either see it as not their problem or that it is simply concerned with positive discrimination, specifically around gender and ethnicity. They don’t have a good understanding of why inclusion is good for them and good for business or what they should do about it. Hayley’s leadership sessions aim to address that.

Using inspiring ‘best practice’ stories combined with the latest research, Hayley’s presentations include:

  • How D&I can help drive innovation and business results;
  • Why mega trends in diversity of markets, talent, customers, risk and ideas require a collaborative and inclusive response.
  • How inclusion and collaboration can be a fundamental driver of one’s leadership style;
  • What does inclusive leadership look like? How to future proof your leadership.
  • What the barriers to inclusion are (such as unconscious bias) and what you as a leader can do to mitigate their impact.
  • How you can shape, take ownership of, and be a role model for your organisation’s D&I strategy.

Feedback on Hayley’s presentations includes:

“Hayley spoke to our senior leaders from across Europe about diversity and inclusive leadership. She worked with us to understand our challenges and helped us shape the session so we managed to effectively change our conversation around diversity and inclusion.  The content was superbly tailored to our requirements with relevant case studies. Hayley’s delivery style and clarity of messaging made it very easy for our many non-native English speakers to not only understand the information but actively engage in the following discussions.  Her contribution was described as “inspiring”.” David BrysonChief Operating Officer, Uniper.
