Stephen Harvard David at the IoD

Delivering conference keynotes is only a small part of what I do.
Much of the work I'm asked to deliver revolves around creating and delivering team strategy.

This tends to focus on smaller and senior management teams although they can be for anything up to fifty people. A great management training session, often followed up with consultancy, can and should create lasting change for a team and the individuals in it.

"Preparing for the future you don't yet know about"      

An invitation for the senior team to spend one day looking at the future and your business.  

The future is difficult to predict …. and just as often misunderstood
Corporate history is littered with examples of organisations caught flat footed by changes which they had failed to identify and appreciate the impact before it was too late

Driving through change is notoriously difficult
The path forwards is littered with potholes.
Leading an organisation through change is challenging, and often isolating for leaders who are, quite often, surrounded by doubters even within their senior team.

Agile organisations are change ready
Being change ready is a key characteristic of the agile organisation able to, not only navigate in an unpredictable world, but thrive on that very turbulence. 

How is the day spent? 
The day is structured into three sessions :-

“The future – threats or opportunities?”
Starts out by looking at the pace of change. We think about whether this is this just hype or reality. We then dip into the world of futureology, looking at some of the latest scientific advances/social trends, and extrapolating how they may affect our future.

“The risks of change”
Looks at some of the latest thinking by change experts. We will start with the reasons why change is resisted, going on to review the plethora of change models designed to manage that resistance, how to how to choose between them and some of the potential pitfalls. This part of the day is all about enabling you to lead the consultants …… rather than the other way around.

“Making the organisation responsive to change”
Deals with how we can make our organisation ready for change.  Specifically, we look at what it takes to set up the organisation to ride the wave of a storm of smaller changes.


Why do only 60% of Executives succeed?
A look at the contributing factors to leadership success and how to avoid being part of the 40% that fail.

How to get paid to promote your business!
Stephen had produced a hugely successful business videoblog. In this keynote he discusses how and the benefits of video for a business.

The above keynotes can be tailored to your specific requirements and are generally designed as 40 or 60 minute presentations

Business meeting and Conference Moderation

I've delivered keynotes and in-house events for BBC Worldwide, The Office of The Rail Regulator, Institute of Directors, Institute of Credit management, CIPD, Said Business School, Universities of Hertfordshire and Loughborough, Sum-Total systems as well as many smaller businesses...all great organisations who want to get the edge and be the very best.

Keeping your business audience engaged and bringing a sparkle to proceedings, particularly when introducing change and team restructure, can be the difference between an excellent event and one that fails to deliver the results you expected.

Having moderated many business conferences, meetings and interview events I enjoy injecting the humour that maintains the momentum and enjoyment expected by the audience even when that audience is concerned about the future.
