The PMI event, which was held in Penang Malaysia had almost 50 speakers and Andrew and Margie were the featured keynotes.

Margie‘s keynote: Reframe Risk, Unlock Potential and Expand Possibilities

How Exceptional Leaders Harness the Potential in Themselves and Others
At the conclusion of this keynote session, you will feel empowered to lead yourself and others with greater purpose, passion, courage and confidence. Drawing on the latest research in leadership and neuro-science, plus interviews with some of the world’s top change makers – past and present – Margie will get to the heart of what undermines leadership effectiveness, sharing science-based strategies to:

Engage people around a big “Why” that taps ingenuity and counters anxiety and complacency

Act decisively amid uncertainty and ambiguity Identify blind spots and foster a risk-ready mindset that is driven by purpose over pride

Engage in the tough conversations that are too often avoided

Create rituals that build resilience to stay ‘on purpose,’ thrive under pressure and fail forward faster

Andrew‘s keynote: Are you an Innovation Leader?

Preparing leaders for sustainable innovation How can leaders deal with the complexities and challenges of constant change? This session includes a fascinating validated assessment and interactive exercises to help explore your unique Innovation Change Leadership profile (iCLi). The Grant’s latest research reveals how understanding individual, team and organisation ‘Paradoxical Innovation Orientations’ (PIOs) can assist with fuelling innovation. In this session you learn how to manage the dynamic tension between the need for exploration and preservation, to demonstrate how to lead teams so they are propelled forward rather than ripped apart. You are shown how to become an ambidextrous innovation leader. Drawing from our research with thousands of survey responses, multiple interviews with heads of innovation and a deep dive immersion into one organisation over two years – along with fascinating case studies from our consulting work with organisations over 30 years – the session reveals how successful leaders can fuel sustainable development.
