This coming year is shaping up to be full of exciting challenges. Our speakers give you an insight into what trends to follow, what thought processes to consider, and what innovations should be on your radar.

Agile, adaptive, resilient, collaborative, creative, emergent, regenerative - we live in a VUCA world: Volatile; Uncertain; Complex; Ambiguous. This most definitely is not new news to most of us. Everyday we hear stories about how the world, business and our economy is changing at a velocity we’ve never experienced.

Aviation is a very safe form of transport, in fact THE safest by a large statistical margin. This culminated in the perfect score of 100% fatality free year in 2017. Not bad when you consider over 45 million commercial flights took place with the equivalent of half the global population or 2 billion people travelled by air that year.

Which one of the following three core drivers of success for your organisation in 2019 would you choose?

Creative content is more important now than ever before because the digital world is noisy. It’s more than noisy. It’s loud, chaotic and it’s so easy to get distracted, right?Every hour, every minute, every second, millions of people around the world are posting, commenting and chronically oversharing.

I read and hear so much about the secretto happiness, it seems that there is nothing new to say. But often with sharing stories we find the answer is as simple as doing happiness.

Everyday we are influenced by those around us. Whether that’s who were following on social media, who we’re watching on Television or who’s podcast we have in our ears.

Cyber security and data breaches – why should we care? Because it will happen to you - And it will hurt. That may seem flippant, but it’s based on some hard facts.

I love the New Year, it brings fresh goals, hopes and possibilities. It’s also terrific that Woman in Leadership is one of the hot trending topics in 2019.

What makes this The Future Consumer’s generation so significant is that they are not shaped by an analog past, instead their default is digital. A magazine is not a magazine; it’s a broken iPad. They may not understand why there was ever a need for a physical street directory, because in their world everyone, everywhere has Google Maps at their fingertips. Interestingly enough, the pure digital native doesn’t know why the save icon in Microsoft Word has the image of a floppy disk, because they’ve never used one.

A massive thank you to you both for all your assistance from selecting to co-ordinating the speakers for our annual ProLoan conference. Feedback was that this year’s speakers where the best they had EVER heard at ANY event. So this is pretty amazing, because they do go to a lot of sessions like these.

I would recommend, without hesitation, the services of Jane Rowland Smith and Ovations. Jane answered a last minute call to arrange a guest speaker for our principals. Nothing was too much effort, all was arranged within hours, and went very smoothly. The guest speaker was exactly what we required and our brief was followed. Thank you Jane and the team at Ovations.

All aspects of the process has always gone seamlessly with Ovations and we will continue to seek your assistance for the awards in the coming years.

Thank you again, your help has meant that our Awards are very professional and extremely well received by our members and guests.

Jane, I personally want to thank you for all of your support, advice, patience and all round kindness that you have given me over the last 3 or so years.  This event would not have been as successful without the valuable MC’s you have recommended and the support you provided me when it all just seemed too hard
