Talking Points

Leading Change (Change is inevitable: Successful change isn't)

88% of change fails. Campbell engages your leaders and your people to be the 1 in 8 who succeed. The ability to lead change is the most important leadership skill of them all. The ability to embrace change is their most important life skill. Your leaders and your people need both.

Who is this for?
From the C-Suite to the team leader - because leaders exist at all levels of an organisation. And Campbell has delivered his Leading Change keynotes across the management spectrum: to C-Suite executive teams, the senior partnership of a major global consultancy; the senior clients of a major UK law firm; middle managers of FTSE100 companies, travel firms, insurers, fintech clients and the UK Police; 1000+ all employees of a global advertising firm; and MBA students at major universities.

Key Takeaways:
- The five key truths about change
- The essential ingredients of successful change leadership
- How to navigate the change curves and help your people to do the same

Extraordinary Leadership / Leading with Influence

The whole point to leadership is to deliver - through people. But it has nothing to do with hierarchy. It has everything to do with influence. Extraordinary leaders use their emotional intelligence to engage people to deliver extraordinary, sustainable results. We can all move towards becoming extraordinary leaders. This keynote picks the best bits from Campbell’s internationally-acclaimed ‘Leading with Influence’ program that he runs to create the next generation of senior leaders for organisations worldwide.

Who is this for?
From the C-Suite to the team leader and the subject matter expert - because leaders exist at all levels of an organisation. For people who manage few people or even no people - but still need to reach out across the organisation to deliver the desired outcomes. In other words, for all of us.

Key Takeaways:
- The key traits of an extraordinary leader
- Practical ways to build EQ and begin to influence without authority
- Practical tips for Communication that Works and developing a strategy that gets delivered

Thriving in the Second Half of your Life

Ageism is the biggest ism of them all - more common than any other form of discrimination based on gender, gender recognition, sexual preference, race, religion, the lot! It is also illegal and yet rife in the workplace, and in society in general. If the Over 50s were a nation-state, we would be the fifth largest economy in the world and growing the fastest. Yet too many companies take their most valuable and experienced employees for granted and/or patronise their most lucrative customers - those with twice as much money as their other customers combined. It is time for organisations to maximise the benefit from their over 50 people and customers. It is time for those of us who are over 50 to readjust our mindset and thrive in the second half of our life. This is our time to thrive! Based on the book: ‘You: Part Two’ published globally by Hachette.

Who is this for?
For senior executives, marketing managers, HR managers and anyone who is either over 50 or planning to be over 50 one day. For HR executives who need to include ageism in their D&I program - the most widespread form of discrimination of them all.

Key Takeaways:
- How to unlock the value of your over 50s people
- How to appeal to your lucrative over 50 customers
- How to thrive in the second half of your life
