We’re thrilled to announce that Formula One legends David Coulthard MBE and Mark Gallagher have joined this year’s speaker line up, in partnership with international speaker bureau Speakers Corner.
David and Mark will kick off this year’s event in Monaco with a special Q&A session on board the Oceania Marina cruise ship, giving inVOYAGE attendees exclusive insights into performance improvement, what it takes to be a winner in the world of Formula One and how that can be applied to life and business.
One of the world’s most widely recognised sports personalities, David Coulthard took 13 grand prix wins in a glittering F1 career that included nine seasons at McLaren. He finished off his F1 career at the newly created Red Bull Racing Team, where he played a key role in developing the team’s capabilities, including bringing its first podium finish in Monaco in 2006. David is now an F1 TV commentator, author, entrepreneur, and this year became non-Executive Chairman of W Series, the world’s first all-women single seater racing series.
Mark Gallagher’s management career in F1 included more than a decade on the management board of the highly successful, race winning Jordan Grand Prix team and establishing the commercial arm of Red Bull Racing. Today he runs Performance Insights, providing deep-dive insights into F1, and working alongside some of the sport’s greatest stars.
The sixth annual inVOYAGE event will bring luxury travel brands together with high-level event planners representing some of the world’s leading corporations on 6-9 October. In addition to David and Mark, former Porsche UK managing director and leadership expert Kevin Gaskell will run an interactive keynote session on how to inspire people to achieve extraordinary results.
Explorer, sportsman, entrepreneur, businessman and professional speaker, Kevin is recognised as one of the most capable leaders of his generation after leading the turnaround of Porsche UK from imminent bankruptcy to market leader. Since then, he has led and transformed many businesses, including Lamborghini and BMW.
inVOYAGE founder & managing director Richard Joslin said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our best-ever speaker line-up to this year’s inVOYAGE, in partnership with Speakers Corner. The combined expertise of David, Mark and Kevin will provide our audience with invaluable insights into leadership, performance improvement and motivation, inspiring them to achieve greatness both personally and professionally. With two Monaco Grand Prix wins to his name, as well as a strong personal connection to the Principality, David is the perfect guest to kick off this year’s event onboard the Oceania Marina.”
Speakers Corner managing director Nick Gold added: “Once again, we’re delighted to be a strategic partner of inVOYAGE and help shape the educational content programme for this year’s event. We can’t wait for delegates to learn from the incredible exploits of Kevin Gaskell and his turnaround of Porsche, while the Q&A session between Mark Gallagher and legendary F1 driver David Coulthard will reveal the secrets to success only a few are privileged to hear. It promises to be another defining moment for the luxury MICE industry as we head into a new decade.”
