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.
