Tom Geraghty is a recognised authority in creating safer, high-performing, and more inclusive workplaces, and Founder and CEO of Iterum Ltd, a company dedicated to fostering safety cultures and psychological safety. Tom’s interdisciplinary background in ecological research and technology positions him uniquely in this field: beginning his career as an Experimentalist at Jealott’s Hill for Syngenta, he transitioned to technology, occupying CIO/CTO roles across various sectors, from innovative tech startups to established global finance firms. Tom is now an award-winning Psychological Safety consultant and researcher for multinational corporations, healthcare organisations, academia, government, and more.
Holding a degree in Ecology, an MBA, and currently pursuing a Masters in Global Health at the University of Manchester, Tom merges academic knowledge with real-world experience. His focus lies in leveraging the transformative power of safety cultures, which stem from his understanding and experience of organisational dynamics and the importance of psychological safety in workplace environments.
His mission is to make the world of work a safer, higher performing, more inclusive and equitable place.
Outside of work, Tom spends as much time as possible outdoors, mountain biking, hiking and travelling, and is a father to a wonderful young daughter.
Tom is available to speak at a select number of conferences and events each year. Previous conferences and keynotes include high-profile events such as The IT Leaders Summit, NHS Senior Leadership Conference, Continuous Lifecycle London, DevOps Lisbon, Re:Develop, and more.
I make myself available to volunteer at a few non-profit events, but otherwise, I charge a fee for speaking engagements, including private/internal conferences. If you’re inviting me to speak at your conference, then we may organise a training course to run alongside the conference. The profit from the training course may eliminate the need for the conference to pay a speaking fee.
