Since 2001, Thought Leaders has been helping great thinkers and presenters shape their ideas so that they are relevant, engaging and able to make a difference to the human condition. This typically happens behind closed doors. Each quarter a few of our hand-picked superstars share their big ideas with the tribe. If you have been sent a link to this page, then it means someone here reckons you're pretty awesome too and that you would benefit from being exposed to what we do here, and to some of our great thought leaders.

Authentic Communication

In an ongoing age of information overload and technical disruption, communicating in a way that is more effective and engaging is needed more than ever before.

In this entertaining and educational keynote, Gabrielle will show leaders how they can ensure their messages are not only understood but remembered. Pointing out the hidden consequences and often hilarious absurdity of using corporate jargon and business speak, Gabrielle will motivate the audience to speak in a way that is more real.

 

About Gabrielle

Gabrielle Dolan can tell you a story or two.

In fact, it was while working in a senior leadership role at National Australia Bank that she realised the power of storytelling in effective business communication. Since that epiphany, Gabrielle has found her calling as a global thought leader on authentic leadership and business storytelling.  The ultimate expression of her passion for the cause is her Jargon Free Fridays movement jargonfreefridays.com.

Disrupt your Thinking

Go beyond Artificial Intelligence
to Superhuman Intelligence

It’s all too easy to assume that the way the world is now, is the natural state it will remain in. So it’s important to challenge your own mindset by exploring why past shifts happened, then leveraging that insight to better prepare for future shifts ahead.

What seems like “overnight change” often takes a decade to play out. This fast-moving world is actually changing at a slower rate. However because many busy people fail to detect and examine the change as it’s happening, it sneaks up on them creating avoidable disruption.

For example digital and mobile aren’t the future. They’re past trends still playing out. So what’s next? From artificial intelligence to mixed reality, the worlds of bits and atoms are merging. Requiring new ways of thinking, new ways of working.

In this interactive session you’ll gain a deeper understanding of this fundamental shift. You’ll learn how visionaries and innovators are using Superhuman Intelligence to change the world. Then you’ll walk away with a powerful new mindset for creating your own future.

 

About Dave

Dave Wild is a Futurist who gives others the ability to see into the future more clearly. It’s a bold claim, so how does he do this?

First by detecting the signals of the future that are all around us. Because the future isn’t off in the distance, it’s right here in front of us but we’re just not seeing it.

Then Dave rapidly shifts your mindset from passively trying to predict the future, to actively innovating to create it. To create a better world for yourself, for those around you and for generations beyond.

Ditch the Script!

How to truly connect to purpose, people and possibility.

From the day we’re born, we’re conditioned to play by the rules. We quickly build up a personal playbook of #lifehacks. We scour the internet for the 10 rules for dating success, 7 steps to wealth and 3 tips for fast-tracking your career. 

But what if our obsession with achievement is now the very thing that causes us to miss the opportunities around us — the chance to learn, to strengthen relationships and trust, to create true buy-in, to innovate, to make a greater impact?

Through a unique blend of stories, insights and games, Simon Dowling draws on his experience as an improviser, lawyer and one of Australia’s leading facilitators to share the magic of ditching the script.

  • Understand what it really means to be agile

  • Identify the scripts that could be getting in your way

  • Spot the opportunities to forge stronger connections to purpose, people and possibility

  • Learn simple yet powerful techniques – from the world of improvisation – that help you to get out of your head and into the moment

 

About Simon

Simon Dowling is an expert in leadership and collaboration, with a passion for creating workplaces that thrive on connectedness.

Once a corporate lawyer, Simon is also a seasoned improviser, performing in improv shows around Australia, including the hit TV show “Thank God You’re Here”. Today, Simon is a speaker, team coach and facilitator. His book Work with Me: how to get people to buy into your ideas – a map for negotiating modern leadership – is as informative as it is entertaining. Simon is sought out for his unique and engaging perspective on creating collaborative teams and his ability to change the way people view themselves as influencers and leaders.
