For An Audience Of Business Leaders

The answers to four questions tells you the story of your business and will help you shape your next moves

Our work as leader is all consuming and complicated. A holistic view, blending logical and emotional intelligence, is a key underpinning of success.  The faster we orientate the quicker we move.  The clearer we see the big picture the more effectively we act. This engaging talk or keynote highlights the recurrent ingredients of teams that outperform, provokes thought and shares pragmatic approaches to how we look at and operate our businesses.

Audience members will:
> reflect on their business today & their decisions on current priorities
> learn pragmatic methods for organised thought & agile decision making
> be inspired to adopt helpful mindsets that augment their current thinking

For An Audience Of Entrepreneurs

How to build a business others are inclined to buy.

The acquirer doesn’t see our business as we see it. They see it through their own lens. How attractive is our business to a buyer? How do buyers set about assessing a potential acquisition? What don’t we know that we might want to know long before we begin a business sale process? And what if we build for years with an exit in mind then discover no buyer can be found or no deal can be completed? Rob has been engaged in over 50 actual and potential acquisitions across the world and provides some perspectives.

Audience members will:
> reflect on their business today & their decisions on current priorities
> gain a business buyer perspective on common pitfalls that impact founders
> learn a straightforward lens & framework for consciously developing their organisation

For An Audience Of Department Leaders

Your department is a business, do you run it as such?

Today more than ever before, because of a convergence of global shifts, technological developments and cultural trends, there is a unique opportunity for those of us in leadership positions to have a hugely positive demonstrable impact on the organisations and people we serve. We need to deliver results and reinvention in parallel. That applies to both our business and our team. How do we set about delivering what we need to deliver? This talk or keynote provides some perspectives.

Audience members will:
> reflect on their current operating realities & priorities
> learn a straightforward lens & framework for consciously developing their function
> reflect on the contribution they deliver to their colleagues & wider organisation

They hold the budget and you hold the quota, how do you bridge the two?

How do we set about knowing what we don’t know? And what does effective relationship building with a business leader look like over time? This talk or keynote provides you with some perspectives.
