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.

Using technology to fight technology; tips for learning in the 21st century

Using technology to fight technology; tips for learning in the 21st century

As technologies continue to advance and the amount of information grows, “keeping up” can feel overwhelming. This is not going to change, in fact, it will worsen as technologies and work environments continue to evolve. An employees’ learning agility is a critical factor of success, and should be a key competency in recruitment…

Why “not enough time” is no excuse

Why “not enough time” is no excuse

We do a lot of work with organisations to help embed new ways of working enabled by the digital workplace. One of the most commonly cited barriers to adoption of modern work techniques is employees who think they lack the time to try new things. More often than not, this objection comes from leaders, rather than front-line teams…

Trustfulness and professionalism

Trustfulness and professionalism

In a complex world where few of us have time to understand the intricate detail of data, accounting, law and perhaps even code, we will need trusted professionals to help us navigate complexity. So whilst automation and technology will probably reduce headcount in the profession overall, the prize for those who can use our new technology superpowers to create value for their clients will be ever greater. Algorithmic transparency and code standards can help us trust the underlying machinery, but I predict we will still place our trust in humans to make the final judgement.

The trap of user-centricity in the Digital Workplace

The trap of user-centricity in the Digital Workplace
