Clive Simpkins Cape Town
COMMUNICATION:

• The individual and how s/he impacts on organizational image through communication.
• The fragile relationship between personal and corporate communication.
• Improving communication to impact on your bottom line.

CHANGE & TRANSFORMATION:

Spiritual Intelligence in Business:
A brand-new workshop launched with huge success via a Quality Life Company event at the Sunnyside Park Hotel, Johannesburg 29th May 2003. The event was attended by academics running leadership programs at top universities and attracted very favourable reviews. One verbatim comment from a Professor is: 'I learned at least 50 new things today!' It explores what spiritual intelligence is, how it differs from religiosity of any sort and how it is already impacting positively on global business. This is not a 'fluffy' talk about spirituality. It's a pragmatic look at a growing trend in business and what will happen to organizations that don't get into step with the growing march to integrity. Examining the triple bottom lines of business for sustainability and a variety of other aspects crucial to business survival, this talk or workshop can be adapted to fit a variety of timing needs.

LEADERSHIP:

• What is it?
• Why do so few business people have it?
• How to recognise, nurture and benefit from it.
• How it differs from "management".
• Charisma, what is it, who has it, and what role does it play?

TECHNOLOGY IS FORCING CHANGE ON YOU:

• How hi-tech is forcing the world to change at a stressful and painful rate.
• How we can cope, thrive and optimise the opportunities presented by accelerating technological change.
• Includes state of the art, up to date examples of convergent technology, IT and how to rediscover "hi-touch".
