Doug Conant - TouchPoints: Creating Powerful Leadership Connections in the Smallest of Moments
September 25 5pm BST (Noon EDT)

Today the information age has morphed into the “interruption” age. People are swamped with work and emails. And just when they hunker down to get something done, a colleague knocks on the door. Or the phone rings. People tend to push these interruptions aside to focus on the “real work.” But in this counter-intuitive keynote, turnaround CEO and Chairman, Doug Conant shows us how these brief interactions are the “real work” today and they will be even more so tomorrow. The secret lies in one simple, but powerful notion: The action is in the interaction.
Amy Cuddy - Power Poses: Using Body Language to Achieve Influence
October 28, 4pm GMT

We know that what we think shapes what we do. But most of us don't know that what we do shapes what we think! With years of research into social interactions and how we make judgments of others, social psychologist Amy Cuddy provides some startling insights into what personal behaviours and characteristics are most certain to promote effective leadership, and how our own body language can not only influence how others perceive us, but how we perceive ourselves.

Amy’s presentation will teach leaders how to influence the way others perceive them, and how to communicate both trustworthiness and power.
David Marquet - Turn the Ship Around! How to Create Leadership at Every Level
December 2, 5pm GMT

Former nuclear submarine commander David Marquet’s leader-leader model breaks with the old school of thinking that humanity has carried since the advent of farming; that there are leaders and there are followers. According to that model large portions of humanity are relegated to following. This saps energy, initiative, and curiosity—our most valuable contributions.

This is no longer the most effective model for human interaction. As work becomes more cognitive and less physical our ideas of leadership need to evolve. Leader-leader champions the collaboration of equals. It moves organizations into a new evolutionary model that increases effectiveness AND fosters additional leaders within the organisation.

After implementing his approach on the USS Santa Fe, not only did the ship go from worst to first within 2 years but created a highly disproportionate number of subsequent leaders.
