This is a motivational, inspiring and humorous talk about Elliott’s life story of growing up in North West London, his career in the Civil Service, experiencing PTSD as a new dad and starting one of the most successful platforms for dads in the UK.

This is the most informal of my talks which includes no slides but is a very personal story. It’s perfect for a light-hearted lunchtime session to entertain and support colleagues.

Expect to hear some insightful stories about having my work shared online by The Rock, winning a UN award, writing for mainstream publications, being rejected by publishers, crowdfunding and becoming an Amazon top 10 bestselling author and presenting a primetime BBC1 documentary.

This is a story of purpose, authenticity and persistence.

This talk is perfect if you are aiming to:

  • Engage more men and dads in your parenting and gender network
  • Inspire and motivate staff to be intrapreneurs and get involved with internal activities which can advance diversity, equity and inclusion

Workshop delivery:

  • 1 x 60-minute motivational talk with Q&A session.
  • Delivered either in person in the UK or as a webinar online.


“It’s been a pleasure working with Elliott as he is very friendly and easy to talk to. He’s listened to understand what as a business we were aiming to get out of the session and was flexible to allow for support planning calls to ensure he captured our requirements, understood our audience and our journey in this area thus far.

The session was very interactive, the audience were given the opportunity to pause, reflect and ask questions. Even in a virtual environment the audience were able to connect with his journey and his inspiration to speak up in a safe environment.

Elliott’s excellent session has inspired us to continue the conversation in the business and we held an internal follow on session. This session picked up on some of the topics raised in Elliot Rae’s discussion and provided the chance for participants to share their insights, reflections and learnings on the topic.”

“Elliot was a brilliant speaker, knowledgeable, engaging, articulate and most of all human; able to help everyone into a subject too rarely discussed.

Elliott was fantastic to work with and provided a wrap-around package, from initial consultation through to delivering the event itself.
The session was interactive and engaging and really allowed our people to have honest and open conversations”
