Stu Atkins talks about:
The pace of change has never been faster. Consumers are becoming more demanding. Immediacy, personalisation, communication and connection are key aspects to driving better business outcomes. Productivity and profitability are under more pressure… As an expert in dissecting tech trends, innovation, disruption and social media opportunities across all industry sectors, Stu enlightens attendees to what the future may hold.
How will you prepare for the next phase of disruption? What tools are on the horizon to make your business more profitable and productive? How can you better engage with your prospective and current audience and what’s your competition doing to stay ahead of the curve? Stu will leave your attendees feeling inspired (perhaps a little concerned) and ready to face any new challenges as we continue to evolve.
Communication as a skill and art form is diminishing in line with the rapid rise of digital communication technical techniques. How we connect, face to face, influences our relationships with everyone who is important to us. Stu refocuses on the key ways to connect, engage, build rapport and motive relationships in a digital age.
I had the pleasure of attending a recent corporate Roadshow across Australia and Stu Atkins was the first speaker. He delivered a 45 minute presentation on Disruption to large audiences and to say I was impressed is an understatement. Stu is engaging and entertaining and tells a story rather than simply delivering content. He had the audience completely focussed from the outset and balanced the presentation with facts, story telling and humorous exercises which were all perfectly executed. Stu is a well rounded Speaker and one I would recommend without hesitation.
