KEYNOTE SPEAKINGNow for Something Better

Unprecedented change and extreme VUCA has extracted an enormous economic cost and a considerable human toll.

While it is comforting to seek a return to the way it was and to recover what has been lost that may be impossible. Our behaviours have changed. Markets have been altered. We work differently.

If it is not in the nature of your company to hope for the best or if recovery is not good enough then seek something better.

Step forward into the future of your design by exploring your company’s potential and possibilities to become better, to do better work and work better together.

Advancement is never easy and is even harder in challenging times. But then “anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm”*.

Navigate the chaos, eliminate uncertainty, and reduce risk. Find you’re better with a practically inspiring keynote on thriving in challenging and changing conditions.

VUCA; volatility, uncertainty, chaos, and ambiguity

The Keys to Your Best Effing Culture
Culture is strategy. Let’s get that out of the way.

Culture is more than foosball and free lunch. Effective cultures are a Culture of Things (CoT). They are a unique mix of values, beliefs, systems and structures. How you mix your Culture of Things and the resulting alchemy determines the stickiness and substance of your culture. It determines who chooses your organization and why. It determines who stays with your organization and why.

Find out how your Culture of Things will raise your organizational effectiveness to new heights.

This keynote presentation is ideal for Talent managers, HR and those interested in improving cultural dynamics.

Delight, inspire and persuade your newly effective customers.

This keynote presentation is ideal for Sales and Marketing teams and organizations seeking better market performance and customer relationships.
