Day 1 @ 12:30

It’s who you know

  • Networking is an essential skill; it’s the skill to success.  So why are so many of our connections superficial and transactional?  And why do they get us nowhere in our personal and professional life?   
  • Maybe because we’ve lost sight of the fact that it’s not about the quantity of connections you make, but the quality of the relationships you build and nurture. 
  • Why your network matters more in this busy and competitive world

Day 1 @ 15:30

Collaboration – the power of the collective

  •     The business landscape is changing at an incredibly fast pace. We feel uncertain and constantly challenged, especially as managers and leaders of today’s organisations who have to remain relevant as we race to the future. 
  •     Here’s the real challenge – that ‘Me’ space you’ve lived in for so long isn’t enough anymore. 
  •     To succeed on a long-term, sustainable basis, we need to engage and innovate, to work together, to make things happen. 
  •     The only thing that is certain is that you cannot move quick enough alone. We must move quickly together, as collective intelligence. Together, we work faster and smarter. This new collaborative way of working is key. Moving from Me to We, is essential for ideation, creation, innovation and influence.
