keynotes


Nils has delivered keynotes and workshops around the world from Tokyo to Munich. Whilst there’s a lot of tailored topics that Nils speaks on, the topics he’s most in demand for, revolve around applying innovation. That being said he’s spoken on future trends, design thinking, process improvement and stress utilisation to name just a few.

IDEAS WITH LEGS - Helping people create commercial ideas

Innovation has to be practical in order to succeed. This keynote takes audiences through ideation step by step.

‘Ideas with Legs’ Keynote outline

Now more than ever, innovative ideas are the currency for success. While we know innovation is valuable, it’s a sad fact that too many organisations just don’t know how to innovate. 

The good news is no matter how time poor, or how crammed our heads might be with traditional business management skills, with Nils’ innovation techniques we can still find a way to bend time to our advantage and shake up our thinking patterns to start innovating. 

Nils’ ‘Ideas with Legs’ keynote delivers an innovation experience so that you can actually experience what it takes to cross boundaries from traditional thinking to innovative thinking. Let’s be clear that Nils believes that innovation is not creativity. Innovation is about creating a great idea and taking it to market for commercial gain.

Be prepared to buckle up as Nils takes his audience on a counter intuitive experience that is as challenging as it is rewarding. This innovation experience powerfully shifts audiences so that they walk away with 5 implementable innovation solutions no matter how time poor or how task saturated they may be.


YOU'LL LEARN:

  1. How to create an innovation map that reveals where to apply commercial innovation
  2. How to tap into the innovation cognition regions of the brain
  3. How to facilitate and prompt innovative thinking ideas with just one question
  4. How to transform mediocre ideas into game changing ideas
  5. How to create a rainmaking idea from scratch
Fantastic at coming into an organisation and peeling back the layers to help find where we can be more innovative
— Jon D'Sousa

HATCH - rapid innovation through archetypes

Innovation is too few and too far between. Period. The old paradigm was that innovation was only for the privileged few. The new paradigm is that innovation be accessible to everyone. 

Innovation Archetypes Keynote outline:

Innovation Archetypes has reinvented the innovation process, making it available to everyone. Innovation is critical to any organisation on the planet. It's the key to not having to compete on price & it's the key to dominating a market.

The challenge with innovation is that it's not accessible to everyone. Our bias perceptions have created boundaries, silo's and obstacles that stop our people from innovating. The good news is with the revolutionary innovation archetypes process we can change all of that. Innovation Archetypes reveals the biases that prevent us from innovating and unpacks the way to overcome them by modeling the behaviours from worlds best innovators.

Audiences identify their innovation strengths and learn how to utilise innovation archetypes to strengthen their innovation deficiencies.

This process identifies where an organisation might need to recruit, it also enables leaders to determine what behaviours to model in order to innovate at the right phase and stage of innovation.

Enlightening whilst practical, audiences come away with a personal prescription on what activities to take in order to innovate consistently and profitably. Any individual that uses this process can become an innovator and any organisation that uses this process can lead its market.

YOU’LL EXPERIENCE:

  1. How to match the right perception with a specific situations to create innovation
  2. An innovation diagnosis & prescription 
  3. Why biases short change our innovation capitalisation 
  4. Innovation principles that make sense and are replicable
  5. Knowing what to do, how to do and when to innovate
Really enjoyed the examples and messages that fear & biases inhibit innovation
— Peita Laufen, Mercer

INSTANT FIX - Resilient innovators who don't burn out

Being cool under pressure, and resilient are all essential elements for the modern employee toolkit.

Instant Fix keynote outline:

We all know that situations change whether it be in business or in our personal life. In extreme situations 'in the blink of an eye' we can go from feeling on top of the world, to feeling like there's no world worth living for. As bad as these changes may be, the reality is that changes are a fact of life. While we can't change the situations that happen beyond our control, we can manage the way we choose to react the instant these situations and changes start to happen.

In this 'it's all about me' 'instant fix' packed session you'll be discovering a stack of fun, practical and proven methods to change your situation 'in an instant'.

So no matter whether you've gone from hero to zero or from calm to chaos, you can change the way you think, feel and act to get back on track.

Be prepared for a stack of instant fixes that will help you turn pandemonium into tranquility. Our instant mental fix will be helping you turn self defeating thoughts into supporting thoughts, insanity to sanity, and frustration into fun. Our instant energy fix will help bring back your mojo, turn pain into pleasure and shift confusion into focus. Whilst our instant productivity blitz will help you turn overtime into free time and turn indecision into decisions.

YOU’LL LEARN:

  1. How to fix the way you think about professional & personal challenges
  2. How to use cognitive diffusion techniques to reduce faulty thinking
  3. How to utilise stress to get more things done
  4. How to solve problems more effectively

Making innovation real. Thank goodness because we need it!

I have started using your innovation techniques in every day life as well as work, and experienced startling results. By applying the “Opposite” mindset as a guide, it has opened up a whole new world of thought. There is no better gift then breaking the habits and paradigms, and for that 1 simple thing alone, I will be extremely grateful.
