Follow The Shade

Modern life tends to be complex, fast paced and rapidly evolving. Very often in this hustle-bustle we get over-stretched mentally and over-whelmed physically.

Often there is a tendency to seek complex solutions or a magic solution; a ‘silver bullet.’ It is easy to forget that our minds were designed to problem solve, and that by nature we are adaptable and resilient.

This highly engaging and interactive talk shares the stories of people and incidents, like the kind we all meet every day, and shows us how we can achieve so much more by simply taking the simplest and easiest way forward; ie. by following the shade.

Told in his inimitable, humorous and inspiring manner by Mukul Deva, internationally bestselling writer and raconteur par excellence, the talk ensures participants not only walk out feeling motivated and inspired, but also have concrete actions they can take to achieve more with less effort.

The Breakthrough Leader / Thinker

Based on Mukul Deva’s book F.C.U.K. Your Way To Success this highly experiential and proprietary keynote empowers participants to revert to their original way of thinking, which helps to simplify things and enables them to spot the opportunity that lies in every situation.

This solutions-focused way of thinking enables people to break out of the shackles of possibilities and function in the more empowering and energizing world of desirability. This not only helps them to reduce their effort, but also enables them to seize opportunities and achieve more results.

Breakthrough thinking achieves this by leveraging the most common currency of all interactions – conversation.

Delivered through the fine art of storytelling, this inspiring and keynote helps leaders to transform the performance of employees and achieve outstanding business results. It boosts employee engagement, productivity and performance. Participants will gain simple yet powerful solutions to real challenges.
