POPULAR MAINSTAGE PRESENTATIONS 1) Stories Rule! We are in an era of unprecedented noise. Attention is the new currency and it is getting more and more difficult to get and keep people’s attention. Stories are the one proven way to connect and have your message stick. We show how to use stories to get and keep people’s attention, make connections, and build relationships. 2) Five Level Leadership Great stories touch us on all five of our levels: Spirit, Imagination, Intellect, Heart and Hands. That is why they move us and why we remember them. We show leaders how to work and engage others fully to create stronger cultures and deliver better performance. 3) Collaborate to Win Nothing great was ever done alone. In this presentation we show the power of WE vs ME in action, highlighting incredible teams who have changed the world and giving insights into how to communicate and cooperate so everyone wins. 4) Change is a choice Change may be the only constant in business today, and yet most people fear change and most leaders are not great at communicating change. We show that change is a choice, and that resistance usually carries a high price. We then show inspiring examples of teams that have taken the leap and won. 5) Small i Innovation Many organizations get stuck in the idea that innovation is about big, game -changing ideas. The truth is that most innovation is incremental, the result of many small ideas and changes. Here we inspire and challenge our audience to change their lens, and give them practical ideas on how to do just that.

It was amazing!

It was amazing! Was one of the best hosts that we’ve had, and this is our 13th year at the event, so I definitely recommend Doug and Mark of a Leader at your event

Turning a case study into a story is something we’re not so good at, and Tim showed us and the IBM team how to do that, and it was fabulous!
