Keynote Topics
Unlike many speakers who give the same talk in any setting, Jamie's deep industry experience and extensive interactions with practicing managers enable him to adapt and customises his talks and workshops to be directly relevant to the business focus of his corporate clients. Below are a sample of some of his more popular talks, each of which can be adapted to align with the overall strategies and event themes of his clients.  


Thriving in a Digital World


There has been a lot of hype about the business impact of consumers’ adoption of networked technologies – especially peer-to-peer platforms, social media sites, tablet computers and smart-phones. But has the on-going evolution of technology, and the way that consumers interact with it, truly changed the world of business? In this session Professor Jamie Anderson will discuss the reality and myths of doing business in a digital world. He will show how networked technologies have brought about profound changes in the way that businesses can function, and explain why organisations need a deep understanding of the opportunities of new technologies to connect with customers and partners. The session presents his 4Es Framework of Excitement, Emotions, Exclusivity and E-Commerce.    

Managing Complexity

In this session Jamie focuses on the dynamic of the creative process as a starting point for managing and innovating in a complex world. He explores the interaction between personal and organizational creativity, and explains that for organizations to innovate and deal with complexity they need to foster the right environment in which both individual and collective creativity can thrive. The session is highly interactive, and participants have an opportunity to reflect upon their own creative potential, as well as to receive practical guidelines on how to increase the level of creativity amongst their colleagues and business partners.  

Achieving Organisational Transformation

In this dynamic and energy-filled session Professor Anderson explains the critical importance of continuous adaptation and change for organisational success. He delves into the elements of successful strategy that can ensure a business continues to evolve in alignment with changing industry and customer dynamics. The session focuses on leadership and organisational culture as two critical enablers for organisational transformation. 

Inspirational Leadership

What do Lady Gaga, Steve Jobs and Mahatma Gandhi have in common? In this talk, Professor Jamie Anderson suggests that there can be no leaders without followers in any societal domain, and discusses the behaviors that inspire loyalty, commitment and unity of purpose amongst employees, customers and fans. Central to his presentation is a provocative comparison of the remarkably similar followership approaches pursued by Mahatma Gandhi, the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India, Steve Jobs of Apple, and the contemporary pop-singer icon Lady Gaga.

Lifework: Beyond Work - Life Balance


Many of us have studied the concepts of strategy, and frequently apply the concepts of strategy development and execution in our professional lives. But how often do we reflect upon the need to develop and implement a personal strategy that will see us achieve not only organizational and career success, but also happiness? And why should employee happiness matter to organizations? In this talk Jamie Anderson discusses the need for all of us to craft our own personal strategy, and to confront narrow definitions of success, linear thinking about career progression, and the personal, societal and cultural barriers than can prevent us from achieving a fulfilling life. He also explains why employee happiness and balance is good for organizations, and the barriers that must be overcome for established firms to engage with new ways of working.
