Banque Privée Edmond de
Mr. Alpesh Patel was a guest speaker at Banque Privée Edmond de Rothschild Europe’s Annual Institutional Seminar, held in Luxembourg. His tailor made presentation on the outlook for global markets was witty, informative and extremely well received by the over 300 professionals present. We would highly recommend Mr. Patel as a speaker at any such event

Alpesh is truly one of the best public speakers I have met. His speech is so powerful and grasps attention of the audiences every single moment. The content he delivered is unparalleled and is so distinctive that I saw a lot of audiences taking pictures on the slides. Alpesh really knows what the audiences need and expect and he is able to deliver them all!
Ruchira Talwar, Barclays Wealth
It was a pleasure having Alpesh speak at the annual Barclays Wealth and Investment Management Diwali event. He is by far one of the most talented speakers that I have come across to date. He has the gravitas and natural ability to captivate an audience and keep them engaged throughout; a gift that very few have. Despite his exemplary speaking abilities, what sets Alpesh out from the crowd is the sincerity that sits behind every word he delivers; an intangible quality that allows him to "hit a home run every time!”
Marketing Manager – LIFFE
(World’s Second Largest
Alpesh increasingly was the face of our launch of Universal Stock Futures. We worked with him for over a year and in all media from books to print articles to online weekly columns. He was excellent value for money and we renewed the contract until our objectives were reached of user uptake. The regard with which he is held in the industry and by the public meant LIFFE as the world's then second largest derivatives exchange were delighted to be Cobranded with Alpesh. His deep understanding of the private investor market meant we used him for strategic marketing consultancy advice too to hone our messaging. This proved invaluable. I highly recommend Alpesh; professional insightful impactful great value.

Alpesh has a been a valued keynote speaker at our live events for many years, whose rare talent in connecting with investors and traders at the retail level, while explaining and simplifying complex theories, accounts for his enduring appeal and popularity with our attendees and readers. As if that isn't enough, he always adds wit, passion and knowledge in his interactions bringing a smooth flow to the event’s format
Sasha Redford, Bwin
Alpesh is an absolute professional, always prepared, knowledgeable and above all engaging. He speaks authoritatively on a wide range of marco economic issues and always manages to engage the audience making the more mundane stories compelling and thought provoking. I have no hesitation in recommending him or working with Alpesh in the future.

Palace of Westminster
Hosting Events in the Palace of Westminster
I have hosted dozens of these for both charities and causes I believe in. Given the venue, these are always special.
Charity Auctions & Fundraisers
I discovered a passion for auctions. They are hard work and getting it right it difficult, but from hosting at the Savoy for the Loomba Trust to Parliament for British Asian Trust or at Kensington Palace for Pratham - they're incredibly fulfilling way to raise more money than you could individually give.

Do you charge?
I don't charge charities. But I focus on charities where my presence as compere or host or auctioneer will add at least an extra £5,000 to the proceedings which usually means an audience of 50 to 100 people.
What About Non-Charities
Generally, the professional costs I charge are around £1,000 per hour. But if it's a firm who is looking to use me for branding, and sales, then I need to vet the organisation and also the fees could be higher as it is only fair if they are making hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Do You Travel?
Yes, subject to my schedule and have given paid talks from Guatemala to Beijing.
