Navigating your future
Would you rather be the captain of a ship or a cork bobbing in the ocean? A serious message and ‘call to action’ are embedded in this fun keynote. Questions posed are:
- What is your envisioned personal (or organisational) destination within a specific time-frame?
- How do you, as captain of the ship, simultaneously ‘keep the boat afloat’ while meeting the needs of the vision, team and individuals?
- How do you harness the power of collective networking while motivating and empowering members of the team?

I ain’t no Geek
- Break down barriers and limiting beliefs. Don’t put yourself in ‘little boxes’.
- Be your authentic self. It doesn’t matter if you seem eccentric.
- Have your own unique, dynamic personal strategy in place. But keep your blinkers off so you recognise and optimise opportunities.
What you say matters
- Validating others empowers them and enhances our leadership capabilities.
- What self-perpetuating stories are we telling ourselves?
- Turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
Apples, Brasso and Barnacles (tried and tested ‘golden oldie’)
- Continuously improve our personal and business product, service and the way we operate.
- Shine up the people (leadership – self and others).
- Scrape away the barnacles – regularly reassess and modify to get rid of (metaphoric) ‘excess baggage’.
Network your way to success (based on Brenda’s two published books on this topic and workshops)
- Become the person of choice, business of choice or organisation of choice through building and fostering positive relationships.
- Quality conversations.
- Develop your skills and build your networks simultaneously.
Be the solution
- Turn challenges into opportunities – for yourself, your team, your organisation.
- Sometimes we need aspirin – sometimes we need to go much deeper.
- Draw on your resources (internal, external including supporters).
You can make a difference
- The importance of personal strategy – and tactics.
- ‘The little engine that could’.
- The ripple effect.
