1. Tomorrow's World Today
THE DISRUPTIVE FORCES SHAPING THE WORLD RIGHT NOW, AND CREATING INCLUSIVE FUTURE
Future Trends  | Strategy | Leadership and Team Development

The mega-forces shaping the world right now, and what we should be doing about them

 

We’re not just living in a time of turbulent change – we are actually experiencing an era shift in history. The rules for success and failure are being rewritten, and there’s no “business as usual” anymore. This is true in every industry and every market. Smart leaders need to keep ahead of these changes by anticipating them, and developing a future-focused skill set. The most successful companies are going to be those that build future thinking, adaptability and innovation into their very DNA.

To do this, we need a new toolkit of skills for the leaders and their teams who are navigating exponential change.

This presentation or workshop provides a future-focused leadership toolkit, along with a compelling picture of the near future. It will inspire and inform in equal measure, and leave your team excited about the future while at the same time knowing what each of them can do to help you get there.

This session is a look at the future, and at the new attitudes and actions required from your people. The presentation or workshop focuses on how your people and leaders can respond, by understanding the nature of disruptive change, looking beyond the next horizon for these trends, getting the whole team involved, experimenting more and confronting limiting orthodoxies.

 

It’s both eye-opening and practical, and will inspire your team to face the future with confidence and excitement.

3. SOUTH AFRICA IN THE 2020S

THE KEYS TO UNLOCKING SOUTH AFRICA’S TRUE POTENTIAL

"We’re not where we want to be, and not where we're going to be…. but we sure are a long way from where we were.” - Martin Luther King, Jnr

South Africa always seems to be teetering on the edge of a cliff. Somehow we never step off the edge, but right now it feels more precarious than it's been for a while. South Africa in the 2020s is a sober, but inspiring look at what the next decade holds, and presents 9 keys that individuals, teams and organisations can apply to ensure their own - and the country’s - success in these turbulent times. It’s a fast-paced, upbeat, yet realistic and thought-provoking presentation that would work really well at your next company conference.

The presentation has 3 main focus areas:

1. South Africa in a global context

South Africa does not stand apart from other developing nations or major global trends. The world is in a period of chaotic change at the moment, with very similar global issues to what is happening in South Africa. Understanding the context of global change will give South Africans an important perspective, and position the changes taking place in our country as part of a significant shift in history. We will also look at the BRICS nations, and other developing countries such as Turkey, Argentina, Thailand, Indonesia, Mexico, Egypt and Nigeria; and in that context we discover that South Africa is doing better than might be expected. South Africa has a robust economy and currency (relative, at least, to our peer group), a stronger government than we’ve had for years, strong institutions that provide stability such as the courts, a free press and a world-class electoral system and Constitution.

 

2. An analysis of where South Africa is now

This leads into the second session which is a constantly updated ‘real-time’ analysis of the issues of the day. Of course, we will look at some of the key talking points consuming South Africans, including the issues of land, corruption, commissions of enquiry, elections and even the selection of sports teams. It really is never boring in South Africa, is it?

 

3. The keys to a successful 2020s

The main focus of the presentation is this final section that turns the attention away from analysis of external forces, and invites each of us and our organisations to consider what we can do to contribute to a better future in South Africa. The presentation highlights some of the key building blocks we need to fix, such as education, healthcare and employment, and suggests what we can do to contribute to developing these. It looks at key issues that are affecting what it feels like to live in South Africa at the moment, including racism, crime and climate change, and shows how we can make a difference. We also look especially at the rise of fake news and the role of social media in spreading misinformation in our country. The goal is to be practical and inspiring, giving people ideas of what they can actually do and helping them to see the country through fresh eyes that are hopeful and confident in the future.

"Hope is that thing inside us that insists, despite all evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us if we have the courage to reach for it, and to work for it, and to fight for it.”  - Barack Obama, ex US President

 

South Africa needs this kind of hope right now: the conviction that what we are doing right now to contribute to our nation is the thing that contributes most to our success. We can’t solve all our problems in the next year, but we can do things that move us forward. Let’s move beyond paralysis to positive actions - no matter how small. Let’s move beyond merely naming our fears to bold responsiveness - no matter how big the problems - for therein lies the secret for turning threats into opportunities. 

4. Mind The Gap (Generation Gap)
UNDERSTANDING AND INFLUENCING DIFFERENT GENERATIONS AT WORK & BEYOND
Talent Engagement | Marketing | Leading Teams

Understand what shaped and formed Baby Boomers, Gen X’s and Gen Y’s, and why younger and older people – staff, customers, family and friends – have such different expectations and approaches to life, leadership, work and relationships.

By understanding the impact of different generational value systems, inside and outside your organisation, you can improve customer relationships, the productivity and interactions of your teams, and gain insights that will ensure you get the most out of the people you interact with every day.

This award-winning presentation or workshop, repeatedly requested by CEO’s and event planners around the world, is a multi-media, humour-filled exploration of the different generations: how value systems are developed and how these influence attitudes and behaviours.

Apply the insights immediately and change your company forever. The presentation or workshop helps participants understand why people older and younger than themselves have different value systems, and how a generation gap influences attitudes and behaviours. It concludes with practical applications suitable for the audience – this includes how to attract, retain and engage employees, how to connect with valued customers and service clients, across the generations.

5. Creating Inclusive Culture in Diversity

Teamwork | Values | Excellence| Inclusion

What Culture are you currently experiencing in your organisation?

 

Most organisations fail to understand and leverage the importance of culture in achieving success.  Discover how to reinvent the culture of your organisation by focusing on the key elements of a winning culture.

 

This presentation will help you seamlessly turn a diverse group of people into a winning, effective and values driven team by changing the culture. It's been said that "Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast" now learn how to turn this power into your winning advantage. Most organisation focus on “What” we do to the detriment of “How” we do it and their culture suffers for it. Smart organisations put thought and planning to the “how we do things” the same way an architect takes different factors into consideration when designing a masterpiece. Creating a winning culture is about creating an environment that makes winning easy by laying down foundations for continuous growth, which are:

  • Distinction: a blueprint that’s hard for competitors to imitate.

  • Values: clear values that shape individual and collective behaviour.

  • Standards: measurable excellence expectations across the organisation.

  • Belonging: a deep personal ownership and a sense of togetherness.
