‘The Titanic, The Butterfly and Your Business’
This talk introduces the concept of the Titanic Factor (how we’re systemically hard-wired to resist change) and how we can learn from the Butterfly’s Journey and Icebergs to create transformative change in business and individuals.
The presentation is aimed at Entrepreneurs and senior executives at the cutting edge of new ideas and wanting to foster innovation in their businesses.
This talk will give you new insights into the factors that may be keeping your organisation from achieving its full potential, and introduces the simple 3-step U-Change process to:
- Engage more effectively with stakeholders,
- Connect to the future that is now emerging, and
- Transform through a process of rapid innovation.
Based on advanced research into leadership and change by top thinkers at MIT Sloan School of Management, these ideas have been tried, tested and proved in organisations of all sizes, right up to governments and even Alibaba – the largest online retailer in the world ahead of amazon.
In keeping with the theme of ‘rapid innovation’ you will get at least one tool that you can use immediately to start creating change in your business tomorrow.
