Unique Interactive Engagement for Virtual or In-Person Events


An engaging, entertaining, amusing, inspiring and stimulating innovative creative keynote delivered either remotely via Zoom or in-person on stage: the Portrait Conversation Keynote is a deep and penetrating portrait in words and paint. Jeremy is the consummate conversationalist; amiable, deeply curious and inquisitive, with a keen intelligence (an Oxford-educated former physicist); and a talented portrait painter to boot, able to render a likeness in a few brush strokes. He thoroughly researches and extensively prepares for each Portrait Conversation. This preparation can include setting up a custom Keynote presentation to accompany and illustrate the conversation, containing, for instance, meaningful music, historical photos, significant documents and other images.

The Portrait Conversations uniquely combine a fascinating conversation between Jeremy and an inspirational featured guest of world stature which can probe, for instance, the guest’s life path, stories, wisdoms and insights. Jeremy simultaneously paints a portrait of the guest using an iPad and digital paint, sharing the process and progress with the audience as he proceeds. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience and that your guests will cherish and enjoy.

The keynote can include real-time audience interactivity and active participation, with, for instance, questions from the audience.

The Portrait Conversation Keynote can be either a long or short conversation, depending on what the occasion demands. The Portrait Conversation Keynote is adapted to suit the time available, with a careful plan regarding what key topic areas are to be covered within that time.
