PY Gerbeau

Serial Entrepreneur & Business Management Speaker

Serial Entrpreneur and an expert in corporate turnaround, Pierre-Yves ‘PY’ Gerbeau has successfully transformed nine firms and created a £600m property portfolio as CEO of C-Leisure. Alongside his corporate involvement, PY serves as Visiting Professor of Entrepreneurship and Corporate Rescue at Imperial College. As a business management speaker, PY’s invaluable experience in the highest levels of corporate firms alongside his ability to turnaround corporations makes him a pre-eminent authority and wonderful keynote speaker on consumer mindsets.

After perfecting his skills at Disneyland Paris, PY is best known for becoming the Chief Executive of The Millennium Dome in London in February 2000. PY yet again managed to initiate change for the highly criticised government built site, attracting over six million visitors and saving the site from becoming redundant. There is no doubt PY’s energy is in bountiful supply, and can be seen by his achievements in a rare day-off from work, where PY won the Pro-Am Alfred Dunhill Cup at St. Andrews. Describing the difficulties of corporate turnaround, PY addresses the key factors of what it takes to rejuvenate profits and grow an empire as a business speaker.

PY’s presentations and talks as a business management speaker are ideal for events and conferences and seek to explain how prevailing economic climates require each and every tier of management in your business to be agile, better at balancing risk and accountable. At a time when even established brands can be destroyed in an instant, ensuring an organisation’s values are understood and upheld by everyone must be one of a manager’s main priorities, this provides responsibility and unites every employee. Above all, they should lead by example.

A terrific business management speaker, PY has an impressive sporting ability also, once captaining the French Ice Hockey Team as well as a scratch golfer. During Gerbeau’s keynote speeches, his endless energy and passion for business strategy alongside his wit and charm makes PY a highly sought after keynote speaker and event host on the circuit.
