Pete Jenkins - Speaking Page

Welcome to my speaking page! Thank you for considering me for one of your events, I am honoured. Organising a conference and training sessions myself I know how hard it is to find speakers and trainers that bring value to your events.

I have been a  regular speaker on gamification for quite some time now and have taken part of many national and international conferences. Some of the most themes I deliver talks around are an overview of gamification and its business benefits, or more specific themes such as gamification for HR and how to gamify sales & marketing.

Companies, conferences and business groups have welcomed me to be a keynote speaker on gamification, to run or be a panelist on webinars, to chair conference days and facilitate panel sessions.

Please also have a look at my colleague's Vasilis speaking page here 

Page Overview: 

About me

 I have been running my own business for almost 20 years now. We started as a CRM systems supplier but pretty soon we realised people did not use them as often or as effectively as they should. Enter gamification for CRM systems and Kevin Werbach's online gamification course and in 2010 I decided to change my business model and dedicate more time on spreading the word about gamification. 

Since then I have delivered gamification talks and training in many events around the world. I have also been teaching at the University of Brighton since 2009 gamification and new venture strategies. 

 I am also organising Gamification Europe which is an international gamification conference that aims at spreading best practices and knowledge in the gamification community. 

 I have also been a member and Chair of GamFed, the International Gamification Confederation where I am part of a global    community of people interested in gamification.  



And jolly good it was too Pete!
