the next disruptHR Speaker
Humanizing feedback conversations, and helping managers embrace coaching leadership.
DisruptHR believes that how we’ve approach people and talent in the past is broken. I agree! And that’s why I would like to be considered as a speaker for your York event this October.
I also believe that a critical aspect of how we manage our human resources is through feedback conversations.
The conventional rulebooks and methods are broken. I don’t play by those rules. Most of the feedback training and models are outdated and are responsible for the stress that feedback conversations often create. We need a fresh approach.
I have combined the world of sport, neuroscience and psychology into coaching feedback model.
As a speaker though, I do more than amplify your message and mission during the event.
I heavily engage with my social networks before and after the event.
I’m not just bringing myself to the event. I’m bringing my tribe with me. I proactively help with your marketing by engaging my network.
Please fire away with any questions, and I’m ready and waiting for your call.
Have a great day on purpose,
Why feedback anxiety exists, and what to do about it.
Imagine teams lead by coach-like managers, where people don’t feel anxious and stressed during feedback conversations.
That vision is at the very core of every speaking engagement that I have the opportunity to deliver.
During my talks, I range from coaching leadership to feedback conversations and creating psychological safety at work. I build my entire speech around your values and goals of your organisation or the theme of the event.
Your audience is guaranteed to leave your event with new insights that they can start implementing immediately.
As a public speaker, my unique style has grown out of my two role models:
- Simon Sinek: I admire his ability to connect with the audience through storytelling. You’ll get plenty of stories too.
- Vinh Giang: His passion and energy to ignite the audience. My topics are deeply personal and exciting, and I bring that every time.
At your event, I am your voice, with my unique approach.
In 2006, I experienced leadership and a people-centered culture for the first time. I felt like I belonged.
I promised myself that I will always create the same feeling to the person on my right and the person on my left.
Public speaking helps me scale that promise. In connecting with more people, I can share the tools and inspiration we all need. The goal: to create a working environment where people feel like they belong.
My background in competitive martial arts and managing restaurants brings a set of unique insights and stories. It is in these intense training environments that I discovered that the model of conventional feedback is broken.
And after years of research, testing, and my own feedback, my process throws out the manual that’s separating people. Let’s get people back together again.
Because when that happens, people work better. Teams are more productive. Businesses are happier. And we all benefit.
And it only takes 10 minutes of your time.
