Keynote titles include:

  • Viral ChangeTM : the alternative to the 80% failure rate of ‘change management’
    Highlighting the key concepts of the pioneering Viral Change” programmes and the book of the same title, this is an insightful tour into the only real alternative to traditional, top-down and mechanistic ‘management of change’.
  • The Age of Activism: orchestrating large scale behavioural change in organizations and society
    There is no difference between micro and macro-social change, a fact largely ignored in business. Organizational change is viral change, an internal social movement, or it isn’t. This keynote addresses ten inconvenient truths about management of change and brings closer to each other social activism ad internal activism.
  • Employee engagement? A company of volunteers
    Employee engagement has become an industry in its own right. The old house of the psychology of motivation has been refurbished and redecorated. But most companies are not going far enough. Would employee self-management be the ultimate goal of employee engagement? This keynote challenges the traditional concepts of employee engagement as commonly accepted.
  • A tale of two worlds: information and behaviours
    Most problems in day to day management can be traced to the mistaken assumption that communication is change. It isn’t. There is no change unless there is behavioural change, so no amount of communication can create change. Behaviours create cultures, not the other way around. Cultures are not created by training. A guide for the perplexed based upon Dr Herrero’s latest book Homo Imitans.
  • Leading change in VUCA land (volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous)
    The current business environment across the world is facing unprecedented challenges. Fundamental shifts in the way organizations work have taken place, yet we still use old management and leadership toolkits, created at a time of a more predictable and linear world. Are we equipped for the new VUCA organization? How can we lead in this new environment?
