SPEAKING

#Creativity #Collaboration #Change

Rated as one of “the top 25 C-Suite Speakers to watch” by Meetings & Conventions USA, Kieran has been described as a "firecracker on stage", "a bundle of energy" and as "Edward De Bono meets Melissa McCarthy"!

Kieran speaks to organisations around the world about Creativity, Collaboration, Change and Leadership. She helps her audiences think differently about creativity and problem solving, think differently as a team and think differently about change and the future.

Kieran is the perfect speaker:

If you’re experiencing a world of change and disruption, navigating a cultural, leadership or marketplace transition, or when teamwork & innovation has stalled…

and you’ve previously had speakers like Michael McQueen, Anders Sorman-Nilsson, Adam Fraser or Jason Fox…

or you enjoy the work of Seth Godin, Edward De Bono, Sir Ken Robinson or Daniel Kahneman…

and you really need to develop purposeful creativity, greater collaboration, and to move your culture from “change negative” to “change positive’…

as well as generating reviews like, “In the12 years of running our conference, Kieran is the first speaker to receive a 100% approval rating from all delegates!“

Creativity

Re:Think your Thinking

The World Economic Forum, EY and IBM have all identified Creative Problem Solving as “the critical skill for professionals and leaders in the 21st Century”. And yet, most still view creativity as  talent you are either born with or not, rather than as a discipline, mindset and skill that can be developed. As a result, few have developed the techniques and tools required to help them generate innovative solutions to increasingly complicated problems.

In this liberating and exciting presentation, Kieran will help you and your team unlock your genius, expand your cognitive bandwidth and out-think your limitations.

 

KEYNOTE OUTCOMES:

• Gain a tool to identify your default thinking patterns

• Learn a method for thinking in questions, not statements

• Discover a more flexible framework to complex problem solving

• Explore a system for thinking differently... deliberately

• Develop a process for driving entrepreneurship and innovation on purpose

Collaboration

Team Genius

We're living in an age of hyper-connectivity and increasing complexity where none of us have all the answers. Even large organisations are having to learn how to partner on collaborative projects across different continents, cultures and values systems. This may sound complicated, but in fact, it is an opportunity to do greater work, to see our world from multiple points of view and raise our collective intelligence.

In this engaging and often hilarious presentation, Kieran will explore how we raise our Collaborative Intelligence (We-Q) and build teams that embrace their diversity, share openly and early and move beyond traditional silos and KPIs.

 

KEYNOTE OUTCOMES:

• Learn the science of team design and who is in your team and who is missing

• Understand how our Default Thinking Frames™ drive team dynamics and disfunction

• Shift your focus from KPIs to "Co-PIs"

• Discover a process for sharing work early and openly

• Develop a team identity that drives engagement

What is UnChanging) and help you and your team shift your mindset from Change Negative to Change Positive through Inspiration, Ideation and Implementation.
