This change leadership keynote is for everyone because "everyone is a leader!"

Everyone in the workplace is working in times of intense technological innovation and dealing with ongoing change.

The key is how to inspire and engage everyone to be ‘leaders of change' and to dynamically increase innovation, collaboration and success for everyone in the company and for the business overall.

This keynote focuses on how each individual can harness their own inner abilities to lead change and personal leadership in a positive and proactive way.

This keynote is based on Cheryl's new book "The Art of Change Leadership" (Wiley 2015).
