A Leadership Keynote That Creates Change

Clear Calls To Action​

Brendan’s first question to an event organiser is “What do you want your leaders to do differently as a result of being at this event?” – He works these calls-to-action into his speech.

Memorable Phrases

Brendan gives your audience memorable ‘sticky phrases’ that stay with people and get used back at work. ​

Example: “We only use blame in the event of gross negligence or malice. Everything else is a learning experience.”

​Useful Models

Brendan graphically illustrates his key points in his speech, then sends these useful models to the audience members to use within their own teams.

Brendan’s View On The Importance of Leadership

“I believe Quality Leadership is the most crucial must-have for organisational success. It enables the achievement of complex goals through collective effort and diverse skills, fostering a supportive environment where teams want to share ideas, and build on each other’s strengths.

True problem-solving (without status-management) only happens when team members combine their expertise and perspectives in a high-trust, psychologically safe environment. It’s the leader who creates this environment.

Most importantly, great leaders cultivate a sense of community and belonging, which boosts morale and keeps talented performers from leaving. This cohesive dynamic not only drives success but also sustains long-term organisational growth and innovation.”

In short – “It’s Everything”
