  • Attract, engage and retain the next generation of workers

Unleashing the Power of Collaboration – If only we all knew what we all knew:

To get ahead in the knowledge economy, companies must capture the expertise already floating around inside their four walls. Using everything from better technology to better meeting discipline, unleashing collaboration is a sure-fire way to drive innovation, productivity and engagement. In a competitive market, we cannot afford to let collaboration be a buzzword – we need to implement real strategies for making it happen.
In this insightful and empowering presentation, Dominic will:

  • Give you the 5 behaviours to unleash collaboration, both personally and organizationally
  • Identify the common barriers to making it happen and show how they can overcome
  • Demonstrate the link between collaboration and innovation, productivity and engagement

Matter – How to become the obvious choice

It has never been harder to stand out. In B2B, B2C, even in job markets, it's getting harder and harder to differentiate, compete and win. There are many reasons for this: digitisation has flooded the market with content and competition; commoditisation is driving prices and margins down, and making it harder to sustainably compete; rising complexity is making it harder for companies to articulate clear, relevant value propositions; and customer loyalty is 'so 20th century'.

In this changing world, we can't compete on features, service or price... we have to matter.

In this provocative and dynamic presentation, Karrikins Group co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Dom Thurbon will:

  • Unpack the major disruptive forces that are redefining the way business is being done, and value is being created
  • Use inspiring, real-word case studies to show how a diverse array of companies are responding effectively
  • Show how we can make our products, our services and our brands matter to our customers and staff
  • Give you the formula for effectively dealing with and thriving in times of disruption and change

Fl!p – Making innovation happen:

There has never been a more important time to drive innovation in our businesses. As markets tighten and get more competitive, we are all under pressure to do more, with less, faster. But for too many companies, innovation is just a ‘value’ or a ‘buzzword’, not a practice that we all engage in every day. We can change that!

Based on first-hand experience around the world and deep global research, in this dynamic and empowering session Dominic will:

  • Identify the five drivers of innovation in your business and how to leverage them
  • Unpack compelling strategies to get every individual in your team to approach work with an innovation-mindset
  • Outline practical, real strategies for creating an environment that drives innovation

Winning the War for Talent – Understanding and engaging Generation Y:

In the current economy, it has never been more important to win the war for talent. To do that, we have to find ways to attract, engage and retain the next generation of workers. The 4.5 million Aussies that make up Gen Y have different approaches to work, life, learning and careers – and we need to equip ourselves with the tools to inspire them as leaders.

Based on his companies face-to-face, first hand word with over 250,000 members of Gen Y every year, in this dynamic and provocative session Dominic will:

  • Unpack the mindsets of Gen Y, and factors that have combined to create them
  • Look at clear and practical strategies for successful intergenerational management
  • Help you drive change in the way managers work with and engage their team
  • Show how creating a Gen-Y friendly team actually creates a talent friendly team
