Talking Points


Networking is an essential skill; it’s the skill to success for you, your team, your business, your clients. So why are so many of our connections superficial and transactional? And why do they get us nowhere in our personal and professional life? Has the technology that was supposed to connect us, made us more disconnected than ever? Maybe we’ve lost sight of the fact that it’s not about the quantity of connections we make, but the quality of the relationships we build and nurture. In this keynote Janine will focus on why networking is an essential skill to support personal and professional success and share why your network matters more than ever. Who do you really know? Who are your personal board of advisors, your intelligence band and your marketing machine. She will: • motivate you to take networking out of the ‘too-hard basket’ • share how to master the art of real, influential strategic networking • identify who is in your network and who is missing • explain how to develop and nurture your network to support your personal and professional goals. • Explain why building relationship that matter is critical to success


The days of lifetime corporate employment are long gone. The business landscape in which we are all operating is changing at an incredibly fast pace. The future of work, of what we are doing and how, is ever evolving. The result? The organisations in which we are having to ideate and innovate, manage and lead, think and deliver, are becoming increasingly complex. Here’s the real challenge - that ‘Me’ space we’ve lived in for so long isn’t enough anymore. To succeed on a long-term, sustainable basis, we need to engage and innovate, to work together, to make things happen. We cannot move quick enough alone. We must move quickly together, as a collective intelligence. Together, we work faster and smarter. This new collaborative way of working is key. Moving from Me to We, is essential for ideation, creation, innovation and influence. You will leave this keynote feeling more than just motivated or convinced you need to work together. You will leave with an understanding on how to influence more, collaborate better, drive impact and be relevant to your future.


The rate of technological change and the ‘volatile stability’ of today’s global business environment means that great leaders cannot afford to stand still or sit back and rest on past successes. If you are a leader of today or tomorrow you need to understand your own path and purpose. Why are you leading? What do you want to succeed at? Who are you really being? What do you want to be remembered for? You need to constantly innovate, reinvent yourself, and actively listen and collaborate if you want to be successful in the 21st-century. You must positively impact your customers, your team and your bottom line. Become a leader worth following, build influence and impact and drive change. This keynote will inspire and motivate your team and organisation into embracing a new style of leadership. The audience will leave inspired to take control and ownership for the part they have to play in driving change and success for themselves and the organisation they are part of, now and into the future.


Sure the workplace is changing, but it is still not a place of equality. Unless we all collaborate and work together, unless we break down the current barriers to diversity, the lack of female leaders now will drastically affect the pipeline of female leadership for tomorrow. There will be no funnelling of talent, no monitoring or active sponsoring of younger women- because the senior female leaders simply won’t be there to see these things put in place. The increasing influence of women is challenging us all to adapt and realign ourselves to the needs of a new society. Engaging women in the workplace, especially at the leadership level, is an essential part of the new collaborative economy. In this impactful and insightful keynote Janine will challenge you, your female leaders and rising stars to do more. She will share how we are all responsible for change today and tomorrow; how we can change ourselves and the next generation to come; how we can change the world now and together create a more balanced world.

Janine ran a comprehensive program for development of top talent. This pulled together many guest speakers in a program that developed the influencing and networking skills of the group. Janine’s approach, and her personality, led to this being an extremely successful program to the extent that we have re-engaged her for a second and improved version this year. I would strongly recommend talking to Janine if you want to do something different when it comes to developing staff . HEWLETT-PACKARD
