Energising and Uniting Teams
There is plenty of evidence to show that teams produce better results than individuals - but only when a team is functioning well! Everyone has experienced the frustration, aggravation and productivity loss of being in a team that is dysfunctional. If the team dynamic is starting to turn sour it is best to address it early before problems become entrenched ... [more]
Taking Performance to the Next level
Every organisation faces times when performance plateaus, when the work force is firmly within their comfort zone. At these times what is needed is a bit of a circuit breaker, something to knock the problems and challenges back into perspective, something to get people excited about how much more there is to achieve.

Your Reality TV Show
Most TV these days is Reality TV, and the latest trend is to take an occupation and turn it into a show. If you're a lifesaver you've got Piha Rescue. If you're a vet you've got 'Vet Tales'. If you're a housewife you've got 'Real Housewives'. If you're single you've got 'The Bachelor' and if you think you've got talent you've got 'NZ's Got Talent'. They're coming for you next! In this action-packed presentation I prepare the audience for their career in front of the camera by taking them behind the scenes of the filming of 'First Crossings' and 'Intrepid NZ'. You'll learn how to come up with a format for your show and how much 'Man vs Wild' has in common with 'Dating Naked'. I'll explain how you sometimes need to give reality a helping hand...[more]
