The Connection Advantage
To gain an advantage in life and in business the most important skill you need to develop is connection. Yet we are never taught the skills that enable us to connect deeply with one another, our clients or our purpose. Organisations that truly can connect at these 3 levels are able to flourish and deal with change, complexity and uncertainty.
The Leadership Leap: Why you need to un-learn and re-learn
Strong leadership of self and of your organisation is imperative for the future of work and business. Leadership is an ongoing challenge globally and presents limitless opportunities for growth. To progress your personal or professional journey Kamal believes you need to un-learn many things you have been taught previously. He has identified 7 essential principals and suggests that un-learning these will accelerate your Leadership Journey.
The Path to Purpose: The power of passion, pain and pausing
By aligning performance to purpose individuals, teams and organisations can sustain superior results. In this keynote Kamal seeks to answer why so many people struggle to find their purpose, and how we can create purpose in our lives, and why it is so important for our wellbeing and fulfilment.
WinWin Conversations: How to have Challenging Conversations with Clarity and Confidence
In a world of complexity, change and disruption your ability to communicate on a deeper level is vital. WinWin Conversations is designed to deliver a competitive advantage because those who can influence relationships and results positively in the future will thrive. WinWin Conversations will help you become agile and flexible in your thinking while offering new ways of communication that can transform relationships and results. Teams who have adopted WinWin have experienced an upward shift in performance. The practical content is ideal if you are looking for an edge in engagement and communication.


Kamal recently opened our Leading through Crisis webinar series transitioning his content beautifully from the main stage to virtual platform. His delivery is calm and engaging, his content is considered and thought provoking. Mental resilience is critical right now and Kamal is helping individuals and teams navigate these uncertain times through his powerful tools and programs. I can’t wait for the day that live events are back on so we can get Kamal on our main stage to speak in person. He is a true professional and an absolute delight to work with.

Hands Across the Water

My national team across all of our geos (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth and Brisbane) finished a session with Kamal last week. The team of directors and partners could really relate to his message on how to build resilience in a disrupted world and how to thrive both professionally and personally. Everyone walked out of the sessions buzzing with excitement, understanding the opportunity ahead and more importantly armed with tools and techniques necessary to tackle what is one of our generations most difficult challenges - “resilience.” Thank you Kamal!
