Christian ‘Boo’ Boucousis talks about:
Deep Performance – Be the best of the best
For leaders, sales and marketing teams, operational teams and general team performance
High performance has its place in an organisation and deep down, we all need and want to perform and to be part of a high-performing, winning team. However, research highlights the stark reality, that not everyone can be, or wants to be, a high performer. However, we can all be deep performers!
This topic explores the power of deep performance. You’ll gain insights into the simple lessons and habits of the best of the best, from business leaders, the GOATs (that’s Greatest of All Time for the uninitiated!) and the uncompromising world of fighter pilots, and how to apply them in your business.
The GID Mindset – Get It Done – The secret to unlocking 400% more of everything
For sales. Productivity, engagement, resilience, agile ways of working and change management
The world around you is accelerating. We look at emerging research on how organisations can take advantage of disruption to not only keep pace with change, but to accelerate ahead of it. We’ve all heard the phrase “We need to buy time”? Well unfortunately you can’t! In an accelerating world, mastering the time you have is fundamental to success.
If we can’t buy more time, how do we create it? The GID mindset is a way of getting your people to think fast and work in unprecedented synchronicity – it’s the future for humans to work in the era of digitalization and automation. It’s about focus, getting “it” done rather than “things” or “stuff “done.

For leaders, sales and marketing teams, resilience, high performing teams and change
In a world where every brand, product and service feel the same, this session will show you the methods to stand out by becoming an exceptional organisation. The formula for driving success?
Developing the courage to dive deep into your organisation’s mis-steps and failures, to extract incredible lessons and to act on them quickly to rapidly improve your existing products and services, drive innovation and create exceptional people. Transition from a FAILURE mindset, to an experimental mindset and strike the balance between delivering your business of today with your business of the future
Indispensable – Be the organization (or person!) you can’t live without
For leaders, strategic thinking, sales and marketing, resilience, motivation and inspiration
What’s the point of every action, meeting, or product in your organisation, or to put it another way, the purpose? This keynote explores why creating purpose, understanding purpose at different levels of your business, and understanding our customers purpose is the key to becoming indispensable.
Having a Vision, Mission and goals is one thing, helping everyone in the organisation connect to them is another.
We’ll take a dive deep into connecting daily purposeful actions to your organisations “Big Purpose” to help improve engagement, productivity and wellbeing across all levels of your business.
From Chaos to Clarity – In a chaotic world, be the oasis of calm
For leaders, teams, strategic planning, offsites, product launch, remote teams
We all need clarity, especially in today’s chaotic disconnected world. In the military they call it VUCA; Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. It’s during these periods exceptional companies find opportunity, rally their people and shift into the new norm, at speed. We’ll explore the importance of creating an execution rhythm, the concept of situationally aware thinking and how to create time to focus and collaborate.
The translation from 'cockpit' to 'meeting room' made it a highly engaging way to learn strategies for getting our strategy executed!
