Keynote: Presentation Structure

A standard keynote talk is approximately 45-60 minutes. Topics are customized around your conference theme and/or event objectives.  We can also deliver keynotes in a more interactive format (up to 1.5 hours) if that serves your goal and event better. To do this we add an element to the keynote such as a small group breakout to discuss some questions around the keynote topic or your conference theme. High-quality visual slides are used during the keynote as well.


Using the metaphor of a bridge that spans and connects two sides of a river and enables people to cross over, so too StrategyAlive is a strategic “bridge building process” of sorts. It too connects and bridges two worlds or realities so others can cross over successfully. As you will discover, Strategy Alive is both a framework and set of practices that move us from “here” to “there.” This bridge or change platform is held together by strong pillars that are time-tested and herculean.
