In this presentation, Bill explores research into how the brain works and how to create the environment to allow the brain to develop a creative response to change and keep a healthy perspective in unhealthy times. Using humour and insight, he celebrates healthy ways of seeing our ever-changing reality in order to bring inspiration and passion back into the work you do. Bill focuses on empathy and what he calls “contagious inspiration”. Nurturing our relationship with ourselves and others can re-wire our neuro-pathways and change surviving into thriving. An inspired perspective can turn tragedy into strategy and improve teamwork to create a renewed vital and “inspired” work life.
Deep Service: A Call to a Higher Level!
Using humour and a rich sense of humanity, Bill helps his audience explore how each individual, at every level of an organization, and the organization as a whole, can re-craft and reframe their work life and personal life to be one of “Deep Service”.You will laugh; you will think – and you will change. Perception drives performance. When our lives are seen from a “service” perspective, it deepens our understanding of our place and mission in the world; hence the title – “Deep Service”. Deep Service explores the idea of servant leadership in your specific industry context. Servant leadership is a concept that is revolutionizing the workplace and adding depth and dimension to many lives and organizations. It helps your organization delve into the almost limitless possibilities of this idea when it comes to serving our internal and external customers. This understanding of deep service enriches the lives of our customers and of our own lives in profound and delightful ways.

Talking in Circles incorporates years of work in communications with numerous organizations with a new understanding derived from recent advances in neuroscience and communication theory. How effectively we communicate is more complex than just being articulate. It involves a number of very human mechanisms, which use different aspects of our brain, our social reality and our individual experiences.
Acting Up: Creating Your Future With a Positive Approach to Change
A word we often hear in the workplace is “Change”! In response to this, people are being told to “be creative and innovate”, “do more with less” and “make do”- resulting in ongoing cries of frustration and burnout! Quite simply, people who have been maintaining the status quo for years are not prepared for creative and innovative thinking; just as a couch potato is not prepared to suddenly run a marathon!

Bill shares the simple mechanisms of the creative process and offers a window on how creativity works for the individual and teams.

And you will be taught to discover your creative self and come to appreciate the creativity in those around you.
