A part of the reboot of Warp News was that I should give more talks, so that more people discover us.
That has happened, but not to the degree that I strive for.
I recently gave a talk to Swedish Aluminum. Before the talk, I met the client, Lars-Inge Arwidson, over lunch.
I have a talk called Optimist's Edge and I told him about it. He thought it sounded good, but emphasized that he wanted to convey hope to the participants. With so much gloom about wars, inflation, and terrorism, it's easy to lose hope.
Afterwards, I thought about that. Am I overcomplicating things?
I had lunch with Klas Hallberg, one of the world's best and most sought-after speakers. He agreed. Simplify, was his message!
I asked you, our subscribers, for help and got a ton of ideas and suggestions. Thank you!
So the new title of the talk is: The future is created by optimists
With the subtitle: A talk about fact-based hope and how that creates better results for your organization.
Please check it out and let me know what you think.
And if you are hosting an event, please consider me doing a talk.
