Inspiring Audiences with Agility
We live in an accelerating VUCA World (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity)
The ability to adapt
Answering the backbone questions: Why Agility, What is Agility (and what is it not - it is very prone to misinterpretation) and most curucially, Who do we need to be in the equation of our Agility? Then How/Where/When can we get started on our journey to becoming more Agile?
Using stories, analogies, models concepts and vocabulary from my days in Aerospace
Drawing on career experiences from working as a Petroleum Engineer on offshore oil and gas drilling rigs, to becoming an Executive, a CEO, a Divisional CEO, Chairing and speaking to peer groups of CEOs, serving on Boards and working with diverse clients globally

I love contrasting a Waterfall mindset with an Agile mindset
Becoming an AGILE Leadership Presence
We live in an accelerating VUCA world (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity) for which the only antidote is AGILITY. I ask your audience, "are you AGILE or FRAGILE?"

What separates the minority from the majority? 5 new roles that AGILE Leaders live up to every day:
Trust me, if you don't live up to these roles everyday, no one else will!
Where your conversation-flow goes, your cash-flow follows. Understanding AGILE conversation-flow as the unfolding flow of thoughts, questions, decisions and actions, divergently and convergently, present forwards and future backwards. AGILE conversation-flow becomes AGILE cash-flow becomes AGILE share-price (whether you are a public listed company or not). How's your share-price? Rising, flat-lining or falling? As an enterprise, an organization, as a team and as a leader? I challenge leaders to look in the mirror and ask what is happening with their leadership stock/share-price?
