Delivering Keynotes and Workshops
I am now being engaged by clients to deliver incredible tailored keynotes to their executives, senior leadership teams, and company conferences and lead workshops to get attendees primed on innovation and excited about the future of their companies.
These are great ways to deepen the engagement with your clients and double revenues per engagement.
Innovative Executives Workshop
This is a 60 to 90 minute workshop to engage all attendees and excite them about the potential for innovation in their organization. It’s a powerful format that works well for meetings of senior executives of 20 to 50 people in size.
Attendees are divided into groups to discuss the organizations Innovation & Future Vision, Organizational Excellence, and ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance).
They then discuss disruptive technologies, opportunities, challenges and actions needed to make change happen. The group then reconvenes to discuss and brainstorm solutions to these areas together.
A roadmap of next steps and innovation champions are identified and the output is used as a reference by the business.
Futures Ignition Workshop
The ‘Futures Ignition Workshop’ is a fast paced and energetic exercise that’s perfect for larger groups of 80 to 250 attendees.
Attendees are divided into groups to choose the top-3 disruptive influences that will impact your business and gain pace by 2030. For each of them real business opportunities are identified that can help inform the strategic direction of the organization. Then we get creative and have the groups write epic 2030 newspaper headlines on how your organization will be world-changing.
The groups then take to the stage to present what they discussed and their headlines. This is incredible to get people thinking of new solutions for their future world and to create a group mindset around futures thinking.
Both workshops can be customized and I’m happy to share pricing on these so do reach out and we can set up a call to discuss.
