Upgrade Your Work - Innovating our Workplaces
Innovating the way we work is seldom considered. To match our companies with the exponentially changing business world we live in today requires agile, resilient companies. Reimagining the fundamentals of working, managing and leading will help us come up with answers to keep us strong for generations. With great examples, this talk leaves the audience with their minds in hyper-speed, thinking of possibilities of how to upgrade their work and the way they manage their organizations.
Building Collaborative Organizations
Each organization is on a different point with embracing internal collaborative technologies. This keynote is tailored to the audience to take them from where they are to the next level. Turning fears into strengths, I will help the audience understand what is holding their organization back from adopting these tools and how they can take a big leap forward.
Embrace Your Failure
Failure is taboo in just about all circles of life. Yet if we were to discuss our failures we would be able to learn and grow much more than only sharing our successes. How should we view failure and how will it make us stronger? What type of culture must we have to profit from our shortcomings? We will look at specific cases where failure has led to fabulous results.
