Business Leadership for the Digital Age

• Excited about the opportunities the digital age offers you and your business?
• See the potential for growth and relish the challenge?
• Worried about the risks and how to bring your team along on the journey?

All business leaders today face the timeless challenges of leadership, plus new, completely unprecedented ones, from the rapid convergence of dramatic changes in society, work and technology.

I strongly believe that the era of digital disruption brings great opportunity for agile, adaptive companies and their leaders.

I well know that the same digital disruption that brings opportunity also brings serious risk to whole industry sectors and to individual businesses. But risk is inherent in business: that’s why we haverisk mitigation policies and procedures with finance, with hiring, and with other aspects of business. Digital disruption is in a real sense just one more thing to be managed with sensible policies and processes.

I don’t take risk lightly and in many ways I’m risk-averse. But I’ve taken risks in my career and with my business, and re-invented myself and my business more than once, so I know the challenges and the fears that come with being an entrepreneur and really stepping up to leadership. I also know the exhilaration when you get it right.

When you work with me

• You get my personal attention, my attentive listening, my skill in appreciative inquiry, my capability in strategic and creative thinking, my expertise in network building and social media
• You get a sounding board for you to test new ideas before taking them to a wider audience
• You get the full array of the skills, experience and practical wisdom I’ve acquired in developing and managing major projects, leading people, communicating across generations, being alert and responsive to diversity issues, working at a senior level in government and having my own business for 20+ years.

As we work together

• I’ll be the attentive, experienced, objective but engaged listener you need to brainstorm with and test ideas
• I’ll support you in processes of vision creation and strategic thinking
• I’ll help you develop and promote your personal brand, in harmony with the corporate brand
• I’ll help you fill in any gaps in what you need to know or do about social media, especially LinkedIn.
• I’ll be on speed dial (text, phone, email, Messenger …) for those moments when you have a bright idea and want to test it, or a particular challenge where you need someone to listen right now to your proposed course of action

And by the time we are done working together, you’ll:

• be crystal clear about your vision for the business, the path forward and how to apply your strengths most effectively to achieve your goals
• have a clear strategy for maintaining and promoting your personal brand and the corporate brand, and delivering on the promises of those brands
• be completely confident of your ability to capitalize on the opportunities offered by digital disruption and manage the risk effectively
• have a roadmap for building and maintaining your social media presence and engagement and the knowledge you need to guide and monitor the company’s strategic social media activity

Expect these results

• You have a trusted sounding board to test your ideas confidentially before you share them more widely
• You are completely confident of your ability to capitalize on the opportunities offered by the digital economy and manage the risk effectively
• You have a practical strategy for promoting your personal brand, in harmony with your corporate brand
