Dev Singh began his professional foray into public speaking and training over 8 years ago, studying Business at university, where every class presentation became an unmissable opportunity to develop and refine his speaking and training skills. A combination of part attention seeker, part communication geek and part perfectionist, Dev began studying and training in methods and technologies for delivering messages, to different kinds of audiences, in the most powerful ways possible. He’s studied and trained with some of the most successful and revered public speakers, platform sellers and trainers around the world, to ensure his audiences are always engaged, entertained and enriched.
Dev has led stages with dozens of organisations from various industries and sectors, including public, community and arts organisations, and brings an incredible appreciation for varying dynamics between different audiences in his presentations and trainings. Having spoken to groups of young students, aspiring entrepreneurs, older community sector workers and Government representatives, Dev has mastered the art of tailoring his unique and dynamic communication style to diverse audiences, as well as customise his content to ensure that his presentations and trainings are as relevant as possible.
Dev speaks on a range of topics relating to business, marketing, communication and leadership. Whilst drawing from a wealth of professional experience, Dev also brings with him a rich and deep personality and character. Growing up as an ethnic migrant in Sydney Australia, he faced a multitude of adversities; some personally unique, and some universal to migrant, Australian and youth experiences. Early in his graduate studies to become a doctor, a near-death experience compelled Dev to reconsider his priorities and personal journey. He successfully got off a relatively beaten path and in exploring other passions, including acting in a feature film and becoming a publicly exhibited photographer, he’s now most passionate about inspiring and empowering other entrepreneurs, executives and organisations to pursue their passions whole-heartedly, and attain meaningful and measurable success.
SPi speaking engagements and training events work in close partnership with clients and audiences to create meaningful and actionable mindset and behavioural shifts, through engaging and fun experiential learning and powerful story-telling.
