Keynotes & Workshops
Sometimes face-to-face experiences are the best way to inspire people and get them fired up to make a change. People remember experiences that change their perspective and teach them useful solutions.
Theory needs to connect with the realities of a particular business, and a practical hands-on workshop is often a great way to achieve this.
Educate, inspire, encourage.
Theory is the easy part. Having the practical hands-on experience to connect theory and practice with the day-to-day realities and constraints of a particular business in a particular sector is what separates the hand-wavers from the helpers.
Having a toolkit of challenging, fun exercises, canvases and management techniques that can deliver meaningful insights and take-aways within a few hours also helps.
We have some very experienced international speakers on our team, and many more in our network, who can deliver interesting and inspiring events, keynote speeches and workshops.
We work with leading corporate education partners to help kick-off learning programmes or address cohorts of emerging leaders in large firms, but the experiences we design are just as impactful for smaller start-ups who want to bring their growing teams together around a shared mission.

Or are Meetings? Or Slack messages? Or Teams Channels? Or, maybe it's simply us... ‘This meeting could have been an email!’ How many of us have uttered these words under our breath, sat in yet another pointless meeting? Meetings like these waste so much time, and...

A final few links and observations as we close 2022 on the skills we need to develop if we are to safely and successfully navigate complexity and macro-level volatility. From Tochka-Us to Twitterdammerung in 2022 I am not going to make the mistake of trying to predict...
In this edition, Lee considers how we can learn the lessons of ad-hoc hybrid work and create a fully-featured hybrid work system to help us hit the ground running in 2023.
Data Mesh – Can we de-centralise ownership and usage of data in our organisations to improve its quality, relevance, and usage?
Following up on Cerys’ exploration of building data capabilities last week, I want to discuss the potential that a Data Mesh approach holds for businesses to achieve this, compared to more centralised data warehouses and data lakes (or even data lakehouses!). Perhaps...
Some thoughts on why orgs find data capabilities and leveraging insights so hard, despite years of investment and initiatives. There probably isn’t a single organisation that has not had a clear strategic imperative to do more with its data in recent years....
