Life's too short for bullshit

Premise and key outcomes for you

A key observation I’ve made over 26 years of looking behind the scenes in businesses is that where candid and convivial communication and conversations are integral to every day work consistent high performance is the result and the connection is obvious.

In this presentation I explore the eight conversations that really count and/or whatever is most meaningful for you in co-creating a culture of candour and ensuring your workplace is a BS Free Zone.

Key Messages

Everyone is a remarkable one-of-a-kind human being therefore style and substance as a leader and communicator are unique. We need to become to best version of ourselves to communicate and converse in ways the eliminate BS and enable candour.

Everyone focuses on feedback. It’s important however it’s the least most valuable of the 8 conversations.

Candid and convivial communication and conversations reduce conflict, difficulty and disagreement and therefore increase personal well-being. Productivity follows.

Who before do is a key principle of consistent high performing cultures and must be reflected in rituals, ceremonies, processes, policies, procedures, practices and systems.

Sustaining a shared-view in seven areas of significance is how the most successful people stand out.


Ian Berry was excellent emceeing our BPW Geelong International Women’s Day Conference demonstrating great skills in keeping to time and linking all the presentations. He then brought it all together at the end with a standout presentation.

Thriving on the challenges of change and innovation

Premise and key outcomes for you

Every day innovation provides far greater value than continuous searching for your next big thing. In fact more often than not your next big thing will come from a small yet significant change to every day being and doing.

In this presentation I explore why solving problems is the great opportunity for innovation, how the truth rather than the myth about quantum leaps is crucial to success, and why understanding disruption is a key to innovation.

Key Messages

All change is personal first, relationships second and organisations a distant third.

The challenge is enabling everyone to be skilled in personal disruption and respectfully challenging the status quo is integral.

Change processes (appreciate-imagine-create-leap-momentum) are crucial, change programs are not.

Change management like strategic planning and performance management is an oxymoron. All 3 must be ditched and replaced with change leadership, strategic feeling and thinking and execution planning and buy-in, and performance leadership.

Ian Berry spoke at my Academy for Chief Executives Group. He was a very popular speaker with my members, with average marks of 8.8. Ian’s authenticity and ‘no-holds-barred’ approach to leadership was refreshing, inspirational, motivational and had great take away value. As I say, he ‘calls a spade a shovel’, and I highly recommend him to any CEO or Managing Director who wants to positively impact performance within their organisation.

The Art, Practice and Legacy Of Being A Leadership Valueologist

Premise and key outcomes for you

Everyone is leading and everyone is following. The key is whether both are conscious and whether or not the outcomes are positive and productive.

In this presentation I explore tailor-made ways to co-create a workplace where people feel valued, live values and deliver value.

My Leadership Valueologist workbook is the final of the trilogy pictured above. It expands on the valued, values, model also pictured and much more.

Key Messages

Self-leadership is everyone’s business and so-called self-management really must be self-leadership supported by shared-view about how management (i.e. processes, policies, procedures, practices and systems) delivers value.

Being remarkable and doing meaningful for you and highly valuable for others work is the sure-fire way to co-creating a workplace where people feel valued, live values and deliver value.

Remarkable is the new normal.

Change is a process not a program.

There are a few proven principles. The key is applying them in your own best way.

I wanted to write to say thank you again, for such an inspiring lecture you gave to the TEC 19 group, up in the Blue Mountains over a week ago. You have had a significant impact on my thinking for the future and life in general. I know I will have contact with you again.

Helping you to apply proven principles in your own best way

A signature of my work with you is that while what I say is important, it's nowhere near important as what you hear yourself say to yourself, who you become, and then do your own unique work.

A key feature of all my presentations is stories people can feel and see themselves in.
