Generation Y Paradigms of Work and Leadership: There has been plenty of debate on ‘how to manage Gen Ys’ in the workplace and how their leadership differs to those of their managers of earlier generations. The very nature of work and leadership needs to change in order to ensure the future of organisations.
Strategic Innovation: Disrupting Your Industry with New Business Models: Reinventing one’s pre-existing business model is just as important as inventing a new product or service.
Management Innovation: Are Your Management Principles Fit for the 21st Century?: Businesses have to modernise when it comes to how they organise leaders, coordinate and motivate their employees.
A Return to Human-Centric Leadership: In company life, we are returning to an old idea of humanity at the centre of what it means to lead. We need to focus on leaders’ behaviours and whether these behaviours provide clarity, engagement, inspiration and coherence.
Future of Work During and Post-COVID: Business as usual is no longer acceptable; we need to find a better and more sustainable work/life balance, and learn how leaders can think differently in order for their employees – and business as a whole – to thrive.
Availability in a COVID World: What do we as individuals need in order to navigate the changing professional waters influenced by a global pandemic? What skills to leaders need to develop to keep their companies relevant and thriving in the 21st Century?

Interactive and engaging session with strong relevance to current challenges and practices.
I found the session very interesting, and I am applying your model to think outside the box, so very well done.
PCMA Conference, Frankfurt
Let me first say that our group is a tough one and are very critical of speakers from the outside. HOWEVER, our group loved Adam’s talk. They felt it was relevant, to the point, and everyone could relate to what was covered. I received compliments on Adam all day.
Thanks for the wonderful session. It was well received and an eye opener.
