This interactive talk is for businesses immersed in, or being impacted by, the extraordinary advancement of technology right now.
Where does the tech leave us humans?
Rather than being bystanders in our own dystopian demise. Gerrie asks us to score ourselves on the four competitive advantages we have over technology, then challenges the audience to take action to make the most of being human. Concentrating on the four strengths we all have, she identifies opportunities for personal development, a new leadership approach and how your business could
benefit from creating an unexpected human-centred future.
Demands on leadership have changed.
Leaders still need to deliver results. They also need to navigate hybrid working. Leaders need compassion to build cohesion, inspire creativity and empower collaboration. This interactive talk reveals why Happiness, Optimism, Playfulness and Empathy are the four cornerstones of the leadership skills needed for
the future of work.
Contact Gerrie to discuss an introduction to H-O-P-E Leadership,
how to measure H-O-P-E strengths
and development of a bespoke
programme to build H-O-P-E leadership in your business.
Is the high street dying or is it reemerging?
In "Hope for the High Street' Gerrie applies H-O-P-E to create a vision of the high street with practical examples, trends from around the world and an imagined future to show how the demise of our town and city centres is a short term blip.
She's excited about the future of our community centres.
H-O-P-E is relevant to every sector. Contact Gerrie to discuss a bespoke talk, workshop or programme to explore opportunities for your business
The future of work is here (just a little sooner than we expected).
We know why, and we have an idea what hybrid means.
The big question is HOW?
This talk uses the latest thinking on how to lead hybrid teams, make hybrid teamwork a success and what useful trends are emerging in hybrid events, festivals and conferences.
Does collaboration feel like an uphill battle?
Remote working has exacerbated an already challenging problem.
This talk explains how leadership problem solving skills can be at the heart of the problem.... and what to do about it.
Gerrie has over a decade of experience developing and leading meetings which are productive, inclusive, democratic and enjoyed.
In this talk Gerrie shares her 'how'.
This is a meeting you won't want to miss.
Is everyone creative? Not everyone can be an artist, musician, sculptor or opera singer. However we can all think creatively.
Gerrie's talk on creativity looks at what we do to sabotage our creativity, what playfulness and laughter have got to do with it and how to nurture, strengthen and realise your ideas.
Gerrie didn't think being a woman was relevant in the work place until
a drink with a former team member made her realise 'I am a woman'. This realisation resulted in this talk. It's about not discriminating against yourself, about accepting the support on offer and shouting louder about inequality when you encounter it.
This talk comes from the many conversations with freelancers asking Gerrie 'how to thrive as a freelancer?'.
Gerrie noticed a pattern to her support and, inspired by Martin Seligman's PERMA model, she developed FREELA.
This talk is perfect for Business Centres, Work Hubs and freelance gatherings.
The talk is also invaluable for big businesses tussling with encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit or moving to a higher proportion of freelance vs permanent workforce.
