Target Audience: Executive Leadership Teams, Emerging Leaders, All Staff Gatherings and Retreats, Sales Teams, Boards

In today's volatile business landscape, adaptability is the ultimate currency. Leaders must evolve beyond roles as practitioners to become highly resilient, motivators, advisors, innovators, and change agents. Now more than ever, we need to create value for internal stakeholders and customers by developing five core Radical Leadership capabilities to not only create longevity but leapfrog the competition.

Key Takeaways:

  • Why the change coming toward us is so much more dangerous than in the past.
  • Our Natural responses to disruptive ideas and how to overcome them.
  • The new ways of thinking required by leaders.
  • 5 Core capabilities that equip leaders in becoming highly resilient and exceptional value creators.

Radical Intelligence: The Changing Nature of Work in the Age of Smart Intelligence

Target Audience: C-Suite executives, Emerging Leaders, HR Leaders and practitioners, All Staff Gatherings

The way we work will change more profoundly between now and the end of the decade than it has since the great depression until now. We have entered the age of smart intelligence.

Our ability to learn, unlearn and relearn at the speed of technological change will be our greatest asset and competitive advantage. Amplifying our humanity is what will separate us from machines. We need to become adaptable learners if we want to ensure we have longevity in this fast paced evolution of work.

We can learn a tremendous amount from our First Nations people about what it takes to be adaptable learners and what better way to learn than from a traditional custodian who brings tribal LORE and Cultural Knowledge 65,000 years in the making into today's workplaces. No one leaves this keynote the same way they came in.

Key Takeaways:

  • What the age of smart intelligence will change about the way we work.
  • The intelligence required to succeed in the age of smart intelligence.
  • How to become an adaptable learner.
  • A tribal perspective of Listen, Connect and Learn that is more relevant today than it has been in 250 years.

This talk explores 5 technology meta trends that have the potential to make our lives unrecognisable and the disruptive potential for industry.

It takes people on a journey from being afraid of a dystopian future to embracing the positive impacts technology is going to make on their lives and their work.

Key Takeaways:

  • Deep dive into AI, The Metaverse, Robotics, Healthspan and Food and Agriculture.
