There is no culture change without engagement. And you don’t get engagement without substance. Our public speaking inspires change because we share fresh insight and challenge received wisdom, but we work hard to do so in a way that also cuts through pretence. We always dive into why a topic really matters, what relevant big ideas actually mean, and what insight is needed to bring about practical, positive change for our clients.
WHAT’S OUR MESSAGE?
Our approach to public speaking is influenced by the fact that we do philosophy. The word ‘Philosophy’ means the love (philo) of wisdom (sophia). In practical terms, loving wisdom often means trying to work out what is true. When we speak, our aim is to dig down to the truth about a matter and share insights that support our clients as they change culture, innovate and address complex matters.
WHAT DO WE TALK ABOUT?
We regularly deliver talks on the philosophy of trust and leadership, but also enjoy the challenge of being asked to develop a philosophical perspective any issue our clients are grappling with.
HOW DO OUR TALKS ADD VALUE?
We don’t take our client’s people, time or money for granted. We work closely with them to ensure we create a message that inspires and adds value on the topics our clients care about. For us, this is an organic process because we don’t start to draft what we will say until we have developed a genuine curiosity about the topic at hand. As a result, our tone is always interested, conversational and dynamic.
WHO DO WE SPEAK TO?
To date, we have delivered talks and keynote addresses to groups working in media, marketing, legal, pharmaceuticals, financial services and the humanities. The kinds of events we have had the pleasure to be a part of include:
- Partner away-days;
- Leadership retreats;
- Company-wide or Department-wide inspiration sessions; and
- Industry conferences.
WHY IS OUR CURIOSITY SO INFECTIOUS?
Because our bread and butter is philosophy, we value truth and the persuit of wisdom above ego or office politics. This makes us craft talks that aim to uncover a message that really needs to be said, even if it is a bit unorthodox. But don’t worry, we are sensible rebels.
