Some recent topics include:

Creative Thinking: A recent survey of more that 1,500 CEOs from around the world asked respondents which managerial skill they considered to be the most critical for businesssuccess in the 21st century. The result saw creativity ranked at the top of the list, and in this session he focusses on the dynamics of the creative process as a starting point for entrepreneurialism and customer-centric innovation at the client company. He explores the interaction between personal and team creativity, and encourages audiences to understand that to thrive in an increasingly competitive global market the organization’s people will need to be more creative in the way that they develop solutions and collaborate both externally and externally.

Life Working: In this talk Jamie Anderson discusses the success trap – the manner in which so many career professionals find themselves on a path towards promotion, responsibility and accountability that slowly but surely absorbs energy from other meaningful life activities. He addresses the myth of work-life balance by arguing that the very definition of this term is part of the problem, and offer an alternative philosophy to purposeful living – what he calls lifeworking. This is an approach that does not try to separate life and work into two distinct and seemingly incompatible spheres, but instead meshes both into a new way of thinking about a career journey in the 21st century.
