Speaker Topics

Audacious Leadership: How to Lead with Conviction, Courage and Care
Australian leaders spend millions of dollars and hours every year developing their own capability and that of their teams, yet as a nation are undecided about what really works. Part of the reason is that more people resist standing up and out than those willing to lead with the positive audacity of conviction, courage and care. It is critical for leaders to create their own enduring leadership style, position and purpose, one that will ensure there is no ambiguity about their behaviour, actions or communication. This Audacious Leadership practical presentation will enable participants to work on developing their own leadership style, position and purpose.
How to Make Good People Great Leaders and Reap the Rewards
If you are serious about staying competitive in a fast changing business environment you need to transform your good people into decisive and inspirational leaders who have the vision to drive your business forward into a profitable future. This How to Make Good People Great Leaders practical presentation will enable participants will understand the value of their individual leadership, how to demonstrate the importance of professional values as well as take ownership of their leadership behaviours and styles
The Integrity Factor
Far from being an old fashioned notion, honourable business, and honourable business leaders, are more sought after than ever. Most of us do not expect perfection, but we do expect transparency and integrity. The same values apply when we consider our community representatives, our own lives and our relationships. It is a commercial imperative for organisations to focus on their brand reputation and their integrity without any ambiguous messages to their stakeholders, staff or the public. Participants of this interactive presentation will understand the importance of values and ethics in todays world, the role of the leader in leading by example at home, at work, and in life, as well as what integrity really means to you, your customers, friends and family.
