Speaking Topics Include

Disruptive Acts - What the hell is disruption anyway?

Disruption is both terrifically misunderstood, and terrifyingly prevalent. But looking beyond the buzzword, what impact does innovation have on organisations and their stewardship? Will leads us through the emotion, environment and practice of innovation, where we find that the map is most definitely not the territory.

In this presentation, we dig into the fundamental mechanisms, environments and behaviours that birth industry-breaking innovations.

Will unpacks the rituals and artefacts of innovators, destroys a few myths, and lays out some simple behaviours that empower organisations to implement practical innovation, quickly.

Key Outcomes


·         Inspire a culture of action-based innovation.

·         Rediscover personal and organisational relevance.

·         Gain insights into leadership styles that inspire entrepreneurial action.

·         Encourage teams to work out of the box and embrace dangerous ideas.



Social Acts - Creating measurable social impact

With the rise of the socially conscious worker, defining and creating value in both social and financial terms is rapidly becoming the standard for high-functioning workforces.

Audience is taken through the art and practice of creating and measuring impact, in a way that doesn’t get caught up in frameworks or definitional debates.

Audiences walk away with a clear understanding of how to personally create, measure and deliver social impact at work.

·         Learn how social impact can be built into everyday work.

·         Gain insights into leadership styles that inspire entrepreneurial action.

·         Get comfortable with making money and doing good, all at once.



Future Acts - Building things that don’t exist yet

Work, and how we act at work is changing. New tech, generational change, and a shifting employment market are demanding organisations to operate differently to stay current.

In this presentation Will takes us over the immediate horizon, to help us understand the transformations occurring in workplaces right now.

Audiences will walk away with tools and strategies enabling them to diagnose the forces influencing the future of work within their organisation.

Digital Acts - Or, why the internet is incredible.

In digital strategy, moving late can mean a slow grind into irrelevance.

Will unpacks how digital disruption is changing organisational strategy and on-the- ground implementation for organisations around the world.

Key Outcomes


·         Innovative disruption: The meaning behind the buzz-phrases, how it actually works.

·         The natural pattern of change, how to identify the tipping points.

·         How user-first, design-first and customer led approaches work.

·         What we can all learn from how tech geeks approach problem solving.



Entrepreneurial Acts - The subtle art of getting stuff done

Entrepreneurship is not a theoretical skill. It’s a set of experiences and behaviours.

How can we encourage entrepreneurial acts within the four walls of a traditional organisation?

By creating space for creative work, agile projects and a support net for fast fails, leaders can bring ownership, problem solving and autonomy into the daily grind.

Audiences walk away with practical, direct insight into the entrepreneurial mindset, entrepreneurial value creation, and the environmental requirements to getting stuff done.

Key Outcomes


·         Understand the root mechanisms of entrepreneurship

·         Inspire ownership, collaboration and value creation
