Talking Points

The Purpose Motive

How might a purpose-infused workplace enable all employees to be highly adaptive for a life of learning and work? How might our work as leaders of organisations and learning communities catalyse the required societal evolution to become increasingly human and socially and ecologically just? If we inspire ourselves to move beyond old mental models we can return to the most human of experiences: connectedness, creativity, agency and joy, and create a new vision of success.

The Learning Future

In this keynote, Louka explores the changing landscape of work, learning and society, outlining global shifts and what they mean for our learning ecosystems in an ever more interconnected and uncertain world. To thrive, we all need skill sets and mindsets that take advantage of emerging opportunities, adapting in ways that integrate and apply new knowledge to promote engagement across cultures, domains and languages.

The Innovation Imperative / Wellbeing by Design

How do we ensure our organisation is maximizing our potential to innovate? In this keynote, Louka shares insights from his work at the forefront of learning systems bringing depth and clarity from the fields of psychology, business, design and organisational culture that assist us to create powerful experiences and environments that maximise innovation and wellbeing.
Inspirational. A spiritual visceral experience that will positively impact my work, my life and the lives of all those I lead and serve. I couldn’t believe how time flew by, I was so engaged that I didn’t even take notes in fear of missing one word. School Principal, Victoria

Brilliant communicator, inspiring in every way and left with a set of tangible actions I want to put in place tomorrow.
