Lord Coe

Lord Coe will give an inspirational talk leading through the unified journey, the performance, the decisions that lead to performance and the keys to a sustained high-level performance.

Starting with the journey through his athletics career, Lord Coe speaks of how it came together and of what he took from that moment in his career.  He will then talk about putting together teams, the choreography, values and vision around that for the teams that won the Olympic bid and delivered the most complex piece of project management known to man – the construction of an Olympic project.

Lord Coe will speak on the tough decisions that lead to momentum on different levels. Discussing how teams were identified, talent developed, and the legacy value beyond the games. The sustainable advantage being to find, absorb, learn practical information quicker that the opposition and we did that better together, than in silos.

From a wealth of analogies of a bigger optimistic picture, Lord Coe illustrates why, what and how the necessary critical decisions were arrived at and what lessons were learnt from decisions that failed.  It’s all about people and relationships and mutual trust.

Rachel Botsman

Who and how we trust is changing radically and rapidly. The implications for organisations, institutions and society are immense. Rachel Botsman spells these out with clarity, humour and optimism, offering practical tips on how to circumnavigate a new era where we are trusting strangers and bots more than established authority.

The trust we used to put in institutions – government, banks, media, charities, churches – has hit an all-time low. Welcome, instead, to the age of ‘distributed trust’, spurred on by new technologies and playing out between individuals, who now have more credibility than institutions. Customers have become social ambassadors who define brands.

But when all the traditional rules of trust change, the crucial question is: how do industries critically reliant on trust – from banking and the media to travel and tourism – adapt to survive? How can you remain competitive when every old wisdom about how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired, is being turned on its head?

Botsman guides us through this uncharted landscape with enlightening anecdotes – and explores what lies ahead for business and human relationships.

Dean Minuto

Dean will present a unique set of tools distilled from more than 100 years of research in the decision sciences which will show you how to get to yes faster and more often, and in an honest and ethical way. Who do you need to get to yes with? This is not a talk about sales. Unfortunately, sales is sometimes associated with manipulation and mistrust. In reality, though, the truth is very different: when done right, influence actually encompasses our most virtuous qualities as humans. The fact is that most communication involves influencing and persuading other people to one extent or another. . . if you are dealing with people, you need to get to yes!
