15:05 – 15:35     Geof Ellingham Chair Agile Business Consortium Introduction to Business Agility

15:35 – 16:35     David Taylor from Naked Leader

Author of the best-selling guide to unlimited success, David Taylor, will share exactly how to achieve the biggest priority facing all senior leaders in all organisations the world over – how to achieve better growth, results and profit* from the people that you already have. In other words, how to ensure that your people love doing what you really need them to do. Achieve this and you will achieve anything. Don’t, and you won’t.

David will share how to achieve this with actions that are powerful – they work, practical – in the real world, and proven – he will name organisations that have done this. Due to his global commitments, this is the only opportunity to see David in the UK for the rest of 2017.

* profit = surplus in not-for-profit organisations, for whom achieving this is absolutely essential.
