We are living in an age of unprecedented change that is both incredibly exciting and just a little bit frightening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, organisations, leaders and teams are complaining of change fatigue as they struggle to negotiate technological changes that render long held roles and career skills obsolete, commercial changes that add new competitors to already crowded marketplaces and social and cultural changes that challenge our very values and belief systems.

Many of the issues we experience around change come down to how we view change and, just as importantly, how we choose to execute change or “do it”. 

We traditionally see change as something that is either thrust upon us or else something we strive to achieve. However, in order to make the process of change a positive experience, we need to consider all of The 3 Spheres of Change - What is changing, What needs changing and just as critically, What is unchanging.

Rated in “the top 25 C-Suite Speakers to watch” by Meetings & Conventions USA and drawing comparisons to "Melissa McCarthy", she brings light and laughter to leading change whether she's: 

  • Working with professional services firms - training their future leaders

  • Leading the strategic and creative team behind the most successful new product launch in Australian history

  • Or engineering Coca-Cola’s most extraordinary brand turn around.

Kieran Flanagan has worked with the UN in Singapore - developing strategies to fight human trafficking in Asia, has run innovation programs for Unilever, Bayer and the NSW and Australian Government Departments as well as facilitating cultural change programs for tech giants across multiple continents.

Ultimately, she teaches leaders, change agents and organisations how to make positive change and make that change positive through:

  • Innovation : Creativity & Problem Solving

  • Collaboration : Teamwork & Team Dynamics

  • Inspiration : Engagement & Presentation Mastery

  • Transformation : Leadership & Change

Kieran is an expert in strategic change and a highly in-demand speaker who speaks on: How to make positive change while making the change itself positive.

Innovation : Creativity & Problem Solving

Change how you think and generate better solutions to increasingly complicated problems

The World Economic Forum, EY and IBM have all identified Creative Problem Solving as the critical leadership skill for the 21st Century. And yet, most still view creativity as a talent you are either born with, or not, rather than as a discipline or mindset and a suite of skills that can be learned, nurtured and developed. 

As a result, few have developed the techniques and tools required to generate innovative solutions to increasingly complicated problems.

In this incredibly liberating & exciting presentation, Kieran will help you and your team unlock your genius, expand your cognitive bandwidth and “out-think” your limits (and your competition).

In this presentation you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify your default thinking style, and it’s limitations

  • Gain insights by learning to think in questions, not statements

  • Explore a system for thinking differently… deliberately and consistently!

  • Add a repertoir of tools that stretch your thinking and generate value-based innovations

  • Develop a process for driving a culture of entrepreneurship

As our teams expectations increase, so too must our ability to generate buy in around change and our vision for the future.
