Why Would Someone Book Me To Speak?
Audiences tend to be attracted by different things - but there are 4 common themes.
1. Sharing actual/useful experience in ‘snackable’ formats.
2. Stories full of insights delivered in natural language.
3. Candid and truthful statements that take no prisoners.
4. Presentation style - immersive/interactive formats that makes people immediately comfortable.
These are at the core of how I speak.
I'm Not Normal
I am not a conformist. I'm not easy to push into a box. I'm a creative, I've been told I'm not that patient but I'm brutally honest and am proud of my core value - integrity.
I have always been a bit of a mischief maker in pursuit of getting things done. It's had to be that way. If things stay the same you'll never make a difference.
These dimensions are woven throughout all my talks
The Topics I Love To Cover:
I'm an expert generalist. That means I cover a lot of topic areas. I'm comfortable talking about different categories -
Disruptive Technologies and how they get embraced or rejected in business
Transformation of large and small enterprise and what it really takes to make it work
Building teams that are motivated and capable of delivering on the challenge at hand.
Solving the the right problem - not solving the wrong problem really well
Connecting the dots that many do not realise are even there.
How to spark creativity. Finding the right mix of diverse and non-traditional people and resources to make things happen.
How to educate and inspire the enterprise and shift cultures and mindsets.
Just throw me a challenge and let me structure an approach and way to fix it.
I can speak about all or one or two of these topic areas
My Direct Experience
Running my own business and consulting to clients in many different categories - FMCG, Retail, Manufacturing, Financial Services and others
Speaking and Judging all over the world
Building a school for true creativity
