Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Management skills, training, change management

The only reliable long-term way to motivate teams to control their costs is to show them how much better things will be if they do so.

Better for them, better for others in the organisation, better for those the organisation seeks to help (clients or customers), better for shareholders, and better for the community as a whole.

Fail to motivate postively - and all that is left as a tool is fear.  How to connect with the passions people have - even in tough times.

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Management skills, training, change management

"Spying at Work -- espionage, who, how, why, how to stop it" Surveillance is getting easier. The other day I was lecturing to twenty senior executives from a major international high technology company on the future. During a fast moving multimedia presentation, I bugged one of the participants. Right under their noses. The device was able to transmit up to a mile. Even with a receiver the participants were unable to decide who was carrying the transmitter. Everyone could hear the sound of his or her own breathing. They were shocked.
