This presentation shows how important each of us are, irrespective of our roles in the organisation.

Full of stories and case studies of men and women who have quietly made a big difference, this presentation highlights the value of all staff and leaves audience members filled with warm fuzzies and challenged to aim higher.


We face an unprecedented time of disruption and change. The mandate for organisations to harness artificial intelligence, big data, and remain relevant through deep understandings of human behaviour throws up huge tensions.

The presentation focuses on key skills necessary to influence and inspire others we deal with to take action. With an emphasis on next level communication skills we explore the neuro-science of emotional intelligence, the power of self-awareness and self-mastery, and new techniques for being at our best when we’re at our busiest. As always, this presentation is lively, and filled with stories, case studies, humour and heart.


Combining classic songs and the latest thinking on personal success and effectiveness, this presentation takes the audience on a musical journey as they laugh and learn how to be successful in all aspects of their lives, both at home and at work. Exploring our different roles in life this talk encourages and inspires us to put out best foot forward and gives us a playlist of well-known hits to remind us of these daily lessons. Entertaining and memorable, this presentation is a favourite with local and international audiences and leaves audiences invigorated with hot tips to use straight away.
