Speaker Topics

Collaboration: Team Genius
We are living in an age of hyperconnectivity and rising complexity where none of us have all the answers. Even global organisations are having to learn how to partner on projects across different continents, cultures and values systems. This may sound complicated, but in fact, it is an opportunity to do work that is more interesting, to see multiple points of view and to raise our collective intelligence. In this engaging and often hilarious presentation and workshop, Kieran will explore how we raise our Collaborative Intelligence (We Q) and build teams that embrace their diversity, share openly and early and move beyond traditional silos and KPIs.
Innovation: Commercial Creativity
The World Economic Forum, EY and IBM have all identified Creative Problem Solving as the critical skill for the 21st Century. And yet, most still view creativity as talent you are either born with or not, rather than as a discipline, mindset and skill that can be nurtured and developed. As a result, few have developed the techniques and tools required to generate innovative solutions to increasingly complicated problems. In this incredibly liberating and exciting presentation and workshop, Kieran will help you and your team unlock your genius, to expand your cognitive bandwidth and out think your limits and your competition.
Transformation: Change Positive
What if competition filled us with a sense of excitement? What if we could feel more in control, even in the midst of disruption? What if our default response to change was positive? In this inspiring and often thought provoking presentation and workshop, Kieran will help you and your team answer these questions through the lens of The Three Spheres of Change: What is Changing, What needs Changing and What is UnChanging. She will help you shift your mindset from Change Negative to Change Positive and leave you feeling more energised, more resilient and more optimistic
