Develop digitally-informed and empowered 21st Century
leaders to shape success.
Robust replicable frameworks harness ideas, forge cross-organisational relationships and power rapid prototyping.
Culture health-checks, change agent discovery and co-creation turns resistance into engagement.
Harness the full power of the digital toolkit to excite and connect employees ... Because “top down” on it’s own doesn’t work.
Since 2000, 52% of companies in the Fortune 500 have disappeared. This speed of churn will get quicker.
75% of the workforce will be millennials by 2030.
"In our modern information age, we have many ways in which to connect with each other. Exercising these and inventing new ones is the only path forward to improving our collective well-being. Katz gets it.”
Spend on enterprise application software was $326 billion last year. More than two-thirds of these projects fail to hit targets. That’s $228.2 billion. Wasted.
$5.9 trillion lost every year to customer switching after a shoddy customer experience, largely due to grumpy, disenfranchised employees.
Global industry faces monumental productivity losses of over $500 Billion every year from employee disengagement.
$5.04 trillion on acquisitions in 2015. Up to 90% of M&A deals are unsuccessful. That’s up to $4.5 trillion. Wasted.
You can buy the best technology, acquire the best companies, hire the biggest consultancies but your people will decide if you win … or lose.
Transformation, Communication & Innovation strategist
"My passion is getting the people who need to talk to each other, talking to each other, unleashing human potential and co-creating simple solutions to complex challenges.
Over 20 years, as a serial entrepreneur and Internet pioneer, I have developed an effective toolkit that has supported organisations spanning sectors and continents through successful transformation.
My trademark people-centred approach drives innovation while harnessing the creativity of internal and external stakeholders. The toolkit includes open-innovation, multi disciplinary design and digital-enabled behaviour change communications frameworks."
"At the heart of any successful business is a story. A story that explains its purpose. A story that motivates its staff. A story that shapes its behaviours, products and services. Add some advanced technology, change the model and boom - you can win.
I am driven by finding stories, building technology and weaving these things together to create a clear, differentiated proposition which inevitably leads to success.
I have built, launched, floated and sold a myriad of businesses, including Baileys Irish Cream, Casio Watches, Sony Vaio and Cisco Systems. What I love most is helping people connect, grow and succeed."
"Treating people as people is more important today than ever. Value-driven leaders at all levels have to build trust and grow mission-led, global companies to make the world a better place.
Passionate about aligning employee experience to company purpose. I give individuals a voice, become a trusted advisor to the C-team, connect the dots and turn insight into tech-enabled people practice. I have built world-class talent practice, managed global transformations and coached great leaders.
Over 26 years, I have worked with leading global brand, media and data power houses: Ten years in marketing at Sony and Carrefour, then sixteen years at Unilever, Thai Union and WPP."
"Articulating the “why” for making change is at the heart of my work. Coupling this with pragmatic and simple execution makes for sustained behaviour change and impact. My forte is helping clients to enhance technology ROI whilst engaging teams to generate a desire to change.
As a former Partner at both Accenture and Deloitte, I have delivered challenging projects with global clients including Cushman & Wakefield, Credit Suisse, Barclays, Zurich, Coke Cola, and BT.
As embedding systemic change in HR, Finance and Sales teams, I have become a regular speaker on my passion of Technology Adoption and Behaviour Change."
"An early adopter of digital technologies and an innovator who has worked with major organisations like the BBC, Nokia, the World Bank, and NATO.
In his book ‘Organizations Don't Tweet’, Euan identifies that there are remarkable opportunities to mine the intellects of senior managers, backroom operators, frontline staff and customers to create a more responsive business model.
Euan believes those leaders and managers that stay connected to their community at work and with their customers have the best chance to survive and flourish in this new ‘Age of Disruption’."
"Helping others discover and achieve their full potential propels me toward mine. My forte is supporting organisations as they recognise and purposefully define their brand and build a narrative and action plan for success.
I have twenty years of experience in global operations, change management and community building, most recently as Global Chief of Staff and Chief Creativity Catalyst for McCann Worldgroup. As an experienced Chief of Staff, I organise sandstorms into beautiful, functional and durable sand castles for the largest, most complex and most innovative marketing communications companies. I bring order to chaos, clarity to confusion and interest to the mundane."
"Most problems in- and outside organisations today are people-shaped (not tech- or finance-shaped). Unfortunately human behaviour is often complex and difficult to influence. My mission is to share a better map of humanity and human decision-making - one rooted in a broad and peer-reviewed synthesis of contemporary social science (not just CogPsych).
I create practical tools and experiences based on this map that allow innovation, culture- and behaviour-change programmes to flourish. Turning scenario planning, service innovation or behaviour change strategy into engaging game-like experiences. And long-term mentoring and support for those leading change. My background is marketing but inside is as important as outside.
Recent clients include: Channel 4, ITV, Experian, Sony Electronics, Kimberly Clark, Brainjuicer PLC, British Association for Screen Entertainment, Unilever, Bacardi-Martini, The Marketing Society."
"I specialise in digital strategy, leadership and culture. I help organisations feel confident in the face of digital disruption, and help their people develop competencies, put aside internal tribalism and embrace change. I focus on people and behaviours, not technology or methodologies. My interest in digital technology is on the impact it is having on us as humans.
I have extensive experience as a consultant and inside organisations: including Digital Marketing Transformation Leads at the BBC, GroupM and Amnesty International. I am a frequent keynote and panel speaker, judge a number of industry awards, and am listed on Marketing Week’s Vision100. "
"My book: 'Inspiring Sustainable Behaviour: 19 Ways To Ask For Change’ was driven by a desire to find, and share, ways to support sustainable changeAfter a decade as a board level Digital Director with some of the most respected global agencies, creating award-winning campaigns for some of the world's biggest brands, I found myself frustrated with traditional marketing practices. I wanted to design behaviour change campaigns that actually worked.
Since then I have worked with business and policy clients, spoken around the world and have joined the Influence Advisory Panel...and have proved that the most effective change campaigns borrow from behavioural economics, social/ environmental/marketing psychology, anthropology and ethnography. "
"In my 25 year career I’ve learned the only way to drive success is to create environments where people are allowed to connect and shine.
As a pioneer and change agent, I’ve dragged multiple top tier advertising agencies kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, from analogue to digital. 10 years ago, I founded the Innovation Labs for Ogilvy & Mather. The labs used a replicable innovation framework, connecting the agency with a growing network of digital disruptors and start-ups, forging partnerships for clients that led to multiple gold awards. If innovators aren’t in my black book, they are probably not worth knowing."
"I’m wildly optimistic about human creativity and deeply concerned by the disfunctionality of systems designed for bygone times. I draw, I’m a creative, I use both to solve complex challenges for business.
I started out inside ‘the system,grew an agency, worked in traditional industry , but I left. I’ve been clean for 20 years.
Now, armed with structured Visual Thinking I do what I can to fix things for Fortune 500s, Governments and Institutions all over the world. Every kind of enterprise question, alongside the societal challenges covered in the Global Goals."
"The Internet has been the focus of my work since 1992, when I became fascinated by its potential to make the world a better place. Working with NGO’s, including Human Rights Internet and OneWorld International, I explored its potential to connect communities and enable new business models.
Over the years, I have led change and technology adoption programmes in commercial organisations ensuring active participation and inclusion along the way. My aim is to make a difference, and I’m proud to have introduced new services at WPP, helped global business leaders evolve their approaches, and led ambitious digital change programmes with Hays plc and now the DEC"
"I am a pioneer of the maker movement with a deep understanding of the potential, and limitations, of digital technology.
A problem solver and critical thinker, I have worked with museums, universities and companies to build state of the art technical solutions.
My passion is working with diverse multidisciplinary teams, co-creating solutions and finding ways of turning ideas into reality.
An empathetic interface between creative, business and technologist I have prototyped and delivered complex, impactful projects with limited resources, budgets and time."
"I am driven by creating technology solutions that make life easier and more fun for users Over 18 years, I have learned that passion, optimism and team spirit are the real drivers for organisational success.
I have built businesses, products and services, harnessed new technologies and forged strong relationships with business partners, inside and out. GSMA, Deutsche Telekom, Alcatel-Lucent, Bertelsmann, Endemol are just some of the companies I’ve been lucky enough to work with."
"My passion is for people, relationships and leading through service, working with or at organizations to enable them to find their “Tipping Point” in a world of continual change and turbulent times.
As a highly experienced customer engagement executive, with experience in Southern Africa, Middle East and Europe, I seek to create the balance between the need for a business to make a profit yet also understand its customers' behavior, thereby delivering successful engaging campaigns.
Amongst others, I have worked at Ogilvy, Woolworths SA, Proximity and some global brands within my portfolio have included British Airways, Vodafone, Salesforce, Nestle, Mazda."
"Over the past decade I have applied game theory and digital media production skills to behavioural change, and I remain a passionate advocate of this approach. My projects have ranged from wellbeing and quitting smoking apps through to brain injury rehabilitation and anxiety management. All these projects combine gamification and personalization techniques to help people get seamlessly from A to B.
With a background spanning start-ups, global media companies and telcos such as BBC Worldwide, FOXTEL and Nine Entertainment, I see business challenges from multiple angles, and use digital technology to inspire enthusiasm and energy for the process of change."
