Gratitude and commendation for Joe Pezzano and Garth Taylor.
These two remarkable individuals form a dynamic duo called 1E Group that can transform your National Conference into an absolute hit.
Last month, I had the privilege of being a keynote speaker at the Advantage Conference hosted by Garth and Joe in Perth.
I must say, Joe and Garth's dedication and hard work in orchestrating a flawless and impactful 4-day event surpassed all expectations. From start to finish, they ensured that every attendee experienced a seamless and memorable conference.
Garth and Joe's unwavering commitment to creating an exceptional experience for all participants truly deserves applause. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and ability to handle any challenge that arose throughout the conference was truly remarkable. It was evident why Advantage and numerous other clients trust them year after year to deliver outstanding events.
For your upcoming event, I highly recommend...
When leaders approach me after a speaking engagement, their eyes brimming with excitement, I am filled with a profound sense of connection.
As a passionate motivational speaker and author, there is no greater satisfaction than witnessing the enthusiasm and engagement of leaders who have just heard me speak at a conference. I love to surprise and delight my audiences while unpacking the steps needed to create a strategic mindset, build future perspectives and shape a brighter future.
After many of my talks, there is often an opportunity to connect with individual audience members, to learn about their trials and successes. I cherish hearing their inspiring journeys. Through their victories, I am reminded of the limitless potential within each of us.
It is in these moments that selling copies of my books and signing them with a personalised note of encouragement becomes much more than a mere transaction; it becomes a heartfelt exchange and a catalyst for change. We shape each...
I am excited to be speaking up north in Townsville.
Michael Kern and his team at the Townsville Chamber are hosting a unique business lunch and have kindly invited me to speak.
My talk will focus on the practical steps needed to develop a strategic mindset, including gaining a broader perspective on the future and how a strategic mindset can be used to promote mental resilience and greater health.
All of us are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities in 2023. To meet these changes, I will be sharing, stories, knowledge, and tools to help business leaders become more effective and strategic.
We will learn to recognise cognitive biases, anticipate future trends, build strong relationships with stakeholders and achieve better results.
When I arrived to speak to Morton Bay business leaders at the Sandstone Point Hotel on Friday, every table had a sign placed by my host, the Caboolture Chamber.
The sign read: "A Strategic Mindset is essential in today's business world where disruption is constant."
The idea of a strategic mindset is an idea worth spreading.
It was an honour to speak to the Caboolture Chamber. They certainly know how to organize a fun event and create a fantastic learning environment – so much laughter and learning over the hour.
Even though the Caboolture Chamber is still relatively new in the Chamber of Commerce realm, they are already filled with enthusiastic and dedicated community leaders, such as Morton Bay Councillor Adam Hain, Paul Garcia, Chamber Relationship Manager from Business Chamber Queensland, and Yvonne Rinaldi, Principal of Caboolture Montessori School, as well as dozens of business owners and managers, like Marissa Austin, Operations Manager from ETC Ltd. I was truly...

Throughout history, heading in that direction has always led to great opportunities. And in just one week, I'll be heading to Perth's Crown for this year's Advantage Conference - I'm pumped!
But wait, it gets better. I'll be sharing the stage with some seriously cool people: the high-energy, quick-witted Andrew Gill, communication master Bruce Cotterill, and adventure extraordinaire James Castrission, who holds not one, but TWO Guinness World Records.
Andrew will be the MC, keeping us all entertained and engaged, while Bruce shares his tips for effective communication and building meaningful relationships. And James? He'll be sharing his insane stories of adventure to inspire us all.

A strategic mindset is essential in today's business world where disruption is a constant.
Emerging technologies, evolving consumer preferences, and changing regulatory environments can all disrupt established business models and entire industries.
Having a strategic mindset includes understanding the forces shaping your industry and the trends likely to affect your organisation in the coming years. With a strategic mindset, leaders can anticipate challenges and opportunities and make decisions that position their firm for success.
Effective resource utilisation is also crucial. Leaders must focus on activities and initiatives that drive growth and profitability while letting go of those that no longer serve the organisation's goals.
