Brands are people too!Show Detail
- 21st century brands are becoming more and more human. They are made for people and by people. They infiltrate lives and carry provocative and profound perceptions. Business and Brand can no longer be separate entities. Business enables a brand to deliver and brands give a business the means to connect, the ability to exist.
Made of storiesShow DetailsThe universe is not made of atoms, it is made of stories. Stories have been the universal mode of connection for over 100 000 years and they are still the base of our connection to everything. Storytelling is an infinite art and there is a significant difference between a good story and a great story. This talk outlines the anatomy of great stories and challenges us to tell compelling ones that are shared more than they are sold.
Transform or lie
Show DetailsChange is the only constant. As the world progresses at an unpredictable speed, businesses and people need to adjust rapidly and create a habit of transforming to raise the bar. Many businesses have the reputation of “not doing what they say they do” or simply “not changing fast enough, or even at all”. This talk tackles the era of transformation and outlines the dangers of faking it or worse yet, transforming as an obligation.
Culture is not a cult
Show DetailsCulture is more than a set of values and a cool mantra on the wall. In many cases a company’s reputation in the minds of employees directly opposes said mantra. Culture is held up by 6 pillars/components that all support each other. If one collapses it creates a domino effect that causes a culture to live and die with certain people. If a culture doesn’t live between an organisation and the people in it, it doesn’t exist.

My ego made me do it
But money does grow on trees
Business is personal
Transparency is the new black
