Mastering the art of Changing Minds

We’re told you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. But what if you could?

Although changing people’s minds has never been easy, it’s never been harder than it is today. Research indicates that while we spend 40% of our professional lives trying to sway the decisions and thinking of others, our persuasive efforts are only successful between 3% – 5% of the time.

Drawing on the latest discoveries in neuroscience and behavioural psychology, this high-impact and intensely practical keynote presentation explores:

  • Why many of the conventional INFLUENCE TECHNIQUES we have been taught are not only ineffective but often COUNTERPRODUCTIVE in modern times.
  • Why using LOGIC and EVIDENCE to persuade others often backfires, causing people to DOUBLE DOWN rather than open up.
  • Why people are NOT actually AFRAID OF CHANGE, and the surprising truth about what really drives RESISTANCE in individuals and teams.
  • How to help others embrace NEW IDEAS and PERSPECTIVES while affirming their DIGNITY, AGENCY, and AUTONOMY.
  • Audience members will leave this keynote presentation with a toolkit of actionable insights for mastering the art of persuasion without resorting to coercion.

How to thrive in an age of uncertainty.

It’s been rightly said that the pace of change has never been this fast, but it will never again be this slow. We are living in a transformative era and smart leaders know that now is the time for audacity, adaptability, and agility.

Enormous opportunities lie ahead for those who can identify the trends of tomorrow and gear up for them today.

In this fast-paced & compelling keynote presentation, audiences will discover:

  • The key trends that will shape the coming decade with a specific focus on the impacts of GENERATIVE AI, DATA ANALYTICS and SPATIAL COMPUTING.
  • The role GEN Z will play in redefining industry norms and consumer expectations.
  • The common CULTURE and MINDSET TRAPS that will set any organization on a collision course with obsolescence – and how to avoid them.
  • PROVEN and PRACTICAL STRATEGIES for staying one step ahead of change and REMAINING RELEVANT.
  • Audience members will leave this presentation with a clear action plan for navigating disruption and emerging stronger than ever.

Preparing Now For What’s Next is an ideal stand-alone conference keynote or an extended half or full-day program.
