Kieran is an expert in strategic change and a highly in-demand speaker who speaks on: How to make positive change while making the change itself positive.


Change Positive : Change how you do change

How leaders build a culture that thrives in times of change

What if competition filled us with a sense of excitement? 

What if we could feel more in control, even in the midst of disruption? 

What if our default response to change was positive?

In this inspiring and often thought-provoking presentation & workshop, Kieran will help you and your team answer these questions through the lens of The Three Spheres of Change™: 

  1. What is changing

  2. What is unchanging

  3. What needs changing

She’ll help you shift your mindset from Change Negative to Change Positive and leave you feeling more energised, more resilient and more optimistic.

 In this presentation you’ll explore how to:

  • Navigate the Three Spheres of Change™ and how your organisation is performing in all three

  • Identify your most critical change priorities

  • Develop mental agility using the "6 R's of Resilience”

  • Learn where to best invest your strategy and future training

  • Gain tools and a framework for embracing the opportunities in change


Create : Change how you think

How leaders generate better solutions to increasingly complicated problems

The World Economic Forum, EY and IBM have all identified Creative Problem Solving as the critical leadership skill for the 21st Century. And yet, most still view creativity as a talent you are either born with, or not, rather than as a discipline and mindset and a suite of skills that can be learned, nurtured and developed. 

As a result, few have developed the techniques and tools required to generate innovative solutions to increasingly complicated problems.

In this incredibly liberating & exciting presentation, Kieran will help you and your team unlock your genius, expand your cognitive bandwidth and “out-think” your limits (and your competition).

In this presentation you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify your default thinking styles

  • Gain insights by learning to think in questions, not statements

  • Explore a system for thinking differently… deliberately and consistently!

  • Add a repertoir of tools that stretch your thinking and generate better ideas

  • Develop a process for driving entrepreneurship and “Innovation on Purpose”


Collaborate : Change how you work

How leaders drive high-performance teamwork

We're living in an age of hyper-connectivity and rising complexity where none of us have all the answers. Even global organisations are having to learn how to partner and collaborate on projects across different continents, cultures and values systems. 

This may sound complicated, but in fact, it is an opportunity to do work that is more interesting, to see multiple points of view and to raise our collective IQ.

In this engaging and often hilarious presentation and workshop, Kieran will explore how we raise our Collaborative Intelligence (We-Q) and build teams that embrace their diversity, share openly and early and move beyond traditional silos and KPIs.

 In this presentation you’ll discover how to:

  • Understand the science of team design & how to avoid “cognitive gaps”

  • Explore how Default Thinking Frames™ drive team dynamics, disfunction & conflict resolution

  • Shift your metrics from KPIs to “Co-PIs"

  • Discover a process for sharing work and co-creating openly & effectively

  • Learn how to shift your culture from a ME to WE mindset


Captivate : Change how you engage

How leaders, teams and organisations build trust, loyalty and advocacy

As team, community, customer and client expectations increase, so too must our performance and our capacity to create engagement around our products, services and just as importantly around change and our vision for the future. But rather than this being a source of stress or angst, it is an opportunity to bring the best of ourselves to our work.

Engagement is ultimately a function of values alignment and a willingness to invest in our own emotional intelligence, to increase our empathy and better understand those we seek to serve.

In this highly practical and commercially savvy presentation, Kieran will provide you with tools and strategies to turn your team into enthusiasts, your communities into advocates and your customers and clients into evangelists.

 In this presentation you’ll learn how to:

  • Increase trust by exceeding expectations

  • Understand what sits behind engagement and the values others filter their world through

  • Gain an insight into what you are “really selling” - it’s not what you think!

  • Develop confidence, your unique tone of voice and increase your persuasiveness

  • Build stronger connections with your customers and within your team

Delegates were literally buzzing through the hours of workshops that followed and we were able to achieve the directions we required to take us forward.
I learned a huge amount and the team feedback has been incredibly positive.
Kieran’s presentation was a breath of fresh air. She is a ball of energy, totally engaging, brilliant use of humour, super visuals and great delivery, but above all she was totally on message with great content. They loved her.

Let’s work together. Drop me a line (or two):
