Keynote – Helping Successful Leaders Get Even Better

Dr Marshall Goldsmith, Executive Coach, Business Author, Thought-Leader, Management & Leadership Expert

If you’re a success in business, why change a winning formula? Because if your organisation isn’t evolving, you’re courting danger. Marshall Goldsmith will discuss the great lesson of his “before-and-after” research: successful people will not change behaviour because they go to a course. But by understanding the unique issues involved in helping successful people change, organisations can get a huge return on investment from their development efforts.

In this session, Claire Madden will analyse the defining characteristics of each generation at work, discuss the keys to managing multi-generational teams and reveal the secrets to developing the leaders you need to drive your business into the future.

Final Keynote Address – Globalisation: A Nightmare or a Dream Come True?

Dr Marshall Goldsmith, Executive Coach, Business Author, Thought-Leader, Management & Leadership Expert

In today’s globalised world, leaders need to build partnerships. As your organisation standardises and integrates its operations worldwide, you will be required to align yourself with supply chains – something that may appear seamless in a strategic plan, but in reality involves real people with diverse cultural backgrounds and communication styles. In this final keynote, Marshall Goldsmith will analyse the new individual skills required to meet this complexity, and the tools you’ll need to meet the planning and communication challenges of a new organisational prototype.
