The Truth About Change
Discovering Opportunity In The Midst of Disruption and Change.
We live in our world that is changing at breakneck speed. Change is the new normal. It is a TGIF world (Twitter, Google, iPhone and Facebook). Change often evokes negative feelings and anxiety in many, but it doesn’t have to. The future is bright for those who understand, embrace and leverage change.
Change: Three Non-Negotiable Attributes
In a world of unprecedented change, how can we not just survive but thrive? In this informative and engaging keynote talk, motivational and inspirational speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, unpacks three non-negotiable attributes that are the antidotes to the challenges that change brings and that each of us face in life and work.
Three Changes You Can Count On
There are three changes every person can count on: new problems, new pressures and new possibilities. The Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of two words: danger and opportunity. Ask any entrepreneur and they will tell you that opportunity lurks wherever there is chaos and disruption. There is opportunity in the midst of disruption.
Keynote: What You Can Expect
In this keynote, participants will discover the timeless and transformational qualities that every forward-looking person must embrace when experiencing change if they are to be successful in their careers and happy in their lives. Christopher Meade, PhD, provides you with a professionally prepared, dynamically delivered keynote presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience. Presentations are customized to meet your organization’s specific needs.
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.
Every few hundred years in Western history there occurs a sharp transformation. Within a few short decades, society rearranges itself… Fifty years later, there is a new world. And the people born then cannot even imagine the world in which their grandparents lived and into which their parents were born. We are currently living through just such a transition. –Peter Drucker, Post-Capitalist Society
