In my Keynotes Talks, I use the power of unforgettable stories and images to leave simple actionable messages.
The stories come from building multiple successful business ventures and from sailing twice around the world. The first time on the worlds toughest yacht race. The second time with my wife and 3 children under the age of 10.
My goal is to deliver a truly impactful and memorable message with humility, humour and passion so that every person leaves feeling inspired with fresh ideas and energy.
I speak on different topics broadly summarised as “all things people”. Each talk or workshop is uniquely tailored to meet the exact outcomes for your audience.
Topic 1 - Charting Success - 8 Steps to Navigating a Winning Team
This talk is all around Leadership and Teamwork and how to build a high performance, winning team. I take audiences on an unforgettable journey around the world with powerful images and videos and at each point of insight, connecting the experiences back to the business world. Some of messages I share include:
How to get a team that operates to collaborate effectively.
Why so many businesses get values wrong and what to do about it.
Strategies to uncover and harness hidden skills in your team.
How to keep cool and thriving amongst uncertainty, adversity and failure.
Topic 2 - Transform the culture in your business (and make the magic happen every day at work)
Hand on heart, how many of us can claim to really know, really understand, live and breathe daily, the values, vision and stated behaviours of our organisation?
We might have read an email about them and they will perhaps be on our intranet, referenced in our appraisals, and almost certainly be found on posters strategically placed around the building; but really living them?
It is more common place to find that, at best, values are paid lip service to and at worst, attract downright cynicism.
But… and this is the exciting bit… achieving a clearly defined, accessible, compelling and OWNED set of values and team behaviours, which are lived throughout an organisation, is the cornerstone of success. Values drive the culture of an organisation.
They determine the mood, the atmosphere, the climate in which we all work. Great values and effective team work make the magic happen at work! Daily!
The key to this success is in having values and a winning team culture that everyone can relate to, having values that are timely and relevant and an environment in which everyone can contribute by writing their own narrative around how they will live them. Commitment comes from involvement. Making our own magic!
You’ll get a fresh and contrarian approach developed for use in business, family and sporting teams.

This provides the foundation for transforming your culture through a fresh approach.
