Tom gives talks on leading performance to both small and larger audiences. He prefers to engage and stimulate an audience by involving them, and offering applicable solutions and stimulation rather than an energising message that lasts only a few hours. He shares anecdotes and stories from his own experiences as well as those of others, but all work is routed in theory and understanding of the topics which he has researched and grappled with himself. He has spoken to both business and sport on the topics of being your best self, leadership, leading performing environments and change.
The Leading Conversation is a concept through which Tom puts together a group of leaders in specific fields and facilitates open-forum debates on the topic of effective performance. It includes involvement with members of the audience in a highly-engaging way bringing topics to life through the relating of their own experiences.
“A good engagement is one that allows people to apply the thinking to themselves practically, right there and then – giving them the opportunity to answer some of their own questions, both stimulating and entertaining at the same time. Everyone loves a good story too!
