Key Notes

High Impact Communication In A Diverse World

Almost two-thirds of candidates say that a diverse workforce is an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers. Yes so few companies put the appropriate emphasis and creating and maintaining an inclusive environment for these employees. Diversity is about including different ideas, backgrounds and opinions in the mix when making key decisions, developing ideas and solutions for internal challenges, and meeting our clients’ needs. Valuing differences allows each person to contribute their unique experiences to the workplace and can impact positively on not only internal activities and relationships, but the experiences of customers and other stakeholders as well.

Format: 30-60 min Keynote Talk

The Three C’s to Win in Today’s Economic Environment

Historical events such as the financial meltdown, Internet bubble and the integrity violations of leaders have exposed a steep price when success turns out to be an illusion. Successful leaders must know how to win in an atmosphere of risk and uncertainty. None of us knows exactly what to do. The critical difference is our ability to derive the correct lessons that turn our current experiences into a platform for producing personal and professional results. Blending the aggressive professional expectations of today with a plan for developing portable skills for tomorrow is a survival requirement in the our economy. Simply put, everyday is a race to improve and every meeting is performance review. Any cookbook approach is powerless with the unfolding situations of the real world, so no cookbooks. We’ll discuss actionable, relevant and repeatable examples of how I lead my small companies to always to punch above their weight delivering client solutions.
