You are making history

The world we are familiar with is becoming history. In its place is rising a new era – the knowledge age – which will be powered by the mobility of people, capital, and ideas. I’ll inspire your audience with how we can all lead with purpose in this historic transition.

Making the A List

In a lively & interaction session, I’ll share my method for identifying the four character types in any network and determine their role in helping to build a collaborative, multi-sectoral community-based network. Your audeince will learn how to identify their A List, the people most likely to share your purpose, goals and motivations to accelerate change.

Moving Your World

Take a deep dive with me into the theory & pratice of deep change, which is marked by fundamental institutional and cultural change. I’ll feature ‘ripped from the headlines’ examples of deep change in action & offer workable solutions for how we begin to shift how we work and how we think in order to succeed in our uncertain and changing world.
