Speaking Topics
  • Nurturing a Culture of Innovation

    Innovation derives from a need or desire to do something better, different and first. Most organizations are striving to find ways to increase their efficiency, make things easier and faster and deliver to their clients making them feel delight, certainty and trust.

    Without nurturing a culture of innovation one can achieve some of the above elements, but not all.

    A culture of innovation requires psychological safety, clear processes and an environment where people are accountable and encouraged to take initiatives. At the individual level, you need people who thrive in such environments and can develop their mindset of growth and innovation.

    Have a look at some of the most successful organizations. They all have one thing in common. They’ve managed to nurture a culture of innovation.

  • The Art of Problem Solving, Risk Taking and Change

    The word risk is like a red siren that warns about danger, loss, disgrace, or even death. It’s fearsome because there’s a level of uncertainty in it, where we might face bad consequences if things don’t go smoothly.

    Change projects are more likely to meet their objectives when those affected by the change have a clear understanding of what to expect in terms of the project’s goals, logistics, and rewards. It is equally important, however, to prepare the participants for any emotional shifts that might occur in themselves or others as a result of the project.

    Change requires time and is perpetual. If rushed, the infrastructure will most likely collapse or best-case scenario the organization will lose its focus and waste valuable time and resources to an unsuccessful endeavor.

    This keynote provides a tested and proven practical framework of dealing with change while taking into account the emotional cycle of change that most organizations tend to neglect.

  • Technology Trends, Implications and Futureproofing your Business

    Blockchain, IoT, AI, VR, the metaverse, the sustainability revolution, the shift to new forms of capitalism…what’s next?

    Wade Younger talks about the latest technological trends, their impact on organizations, society and human behavior, and provides a framework to stay sane in an insane, but very exciting world.

    How can organizations make the most of recent technological advancements while being ready for the future ones that will be deployed, at what seems to be a blink of an eye?

    Staying ahead of the curve and leading disruption requires an eye to the future. It requires ongoing knowledge, preparedness and a process that will allow your organization to adapt and thrive in our constantly changing world.

    Change is a fact. Our willingness to transform and adapt will define if our game is up or if we’ll thrive.

  • The Fuel of the Future is Grit

    What is it about people that have willpower? What’s the fuel you can’t see? The fuel is grit and it’s the fuel of the future.

    What makes us high achievers and successful individuals isn’t defined by one single characteristic, however grit has been proven to be one of the most important ones.

    Grit has been described as a facet of conscientiousness defined as passion and perseverance for long-term goals.

    Grit is not based on IQ and is a quality that can be learned. It involves other qualities such as courage, achievement orientation, endurance, resilience and excellence in place of perfection.

    Wade describes grit as an intangible ability to overcoming your mind. Some have it innately, some need to develop it. But it always starts with a thought.

    Embark on an inspiring journey of self-discovery and transformation that will enable you to not only empower yourself, but to develop your own unlimited fuel of your future success.

    "

  • Think About What You Think About

    When it comes to transformation and creating positive future-focused cultures it all comes down to one thing. The way we think.

    Our thoughts create choices. Our choices shape our behavior. This is what leads us to having new experiences. Each experience we gain is associated to an emotion. And our emotions track back to new thoughts. It’s an ever-ending cycle.

    Where does your innovative thinking come from?

    We have not been taught to think about what we think about. We base our decisions based on our past experiences when what we really need is a map for the future.

    Wade challenges the way you think so as to broaden your perspective and develop your innovative thinking by providing you with a practical framework and an inspiring approach that will alter the way you currently think. "
