PRESENTATION TOPICS

SUPERTALENT
The way you attract and retain the best and brightest has changed, dramatically.

Now more than ever the ability to attract and retain talented employees determines the success of a business. This presentation challenges employers to rethink the way they currently manage their best and brightest.

Companies that talk about having engagement problems haven't identified the real wants and needs of their people. Add to that the changes in popular culture, the emergence of Generation Y and the explosion of social trends and organisations have to realise that employee expectations have changed dramatically. In turn they need to change how they attract, manage and retain their talented people.

SUPERBRAND
How to shape your employer brand for the 2020 Workplace.

Ten years ago Google was operating out of a garage, Nokia was the number #1 seller of mobile phones and the founder of Facebook was in maths class. What a difference a decade can make. The art and science of employer branding has changed and the focus on people, planet and profits (known as the triple bottom line) will become the main way organisations attract and retain new employees.

IDENTITY SHIFT
How to unleash human potential and increase individual engagement across your entire workforce.

How do you unleash untapped human capital? Is it the promise of payment and promotion that brings out the best in a workforce, or is it being valued that allows employees to become the best they can be?

The presentation looks at how changes in technology, communications, culture and the marketplace have created a huge shift in how employees value their skills, talents and expertise. It replaces outdated personal leadership theory with new insights and practices, highlighting that when employees experience a real sense of value their personal engagement increases across the entire workforce, ultimately creating success for all.
