Current Keynote: Nature, nurture.
In this highly engaging, fascinating and lively presentation, Jez offers a blueprint for human achievement. He provides insight into his research and experience working in culture, leadership and emotional welfare and through understanding why we do what we do, and how simple it is to improve the way we think, behave and ultimately achieve, Jez shares many powerful messages that all organisations can learn from the natural world: from efficient models of leadership and collaboration in honeybees, to adaptive working for the greater good of the whole, as seen in Canada Geese, Elephant herds and honeybee colonies.
At its heart, the message of his presentation is a simple, but none-the-less powerful one: ever since humans stepped foot onto soil, nature had important lessons for us, yet for centuries we’ve ignored them. The result is an increase in crisis seen in personal lives and within organisations: disconnected leaders; cultures without passion; disengaged workforces; a surge in anxiety and depression and an environment ignored.
The overwhelming impact nature has on human health, wellbeing and behaviour is scientifically evidenced and will surprise you; how simply it changes human behaviour will amaze – but the resulting impact on individuals, families and workplace culture, will astonish.
