Disrupt your life - How to achieve the extraordinary through your daily choices and action 

In 2010, Neryl East received a phone message no wife wants to hear. Her partner, Mike, was critically injured in a dirt bike accident and was being rushed to hospital by air ambulance.

As Mike fought back from near-fatal injuries, Neryl was plunged into the world of the carer.

This compelling keynote – delivered in unique style by Neryl and Mike – follows Mike’s journey from trauma patient to international sporting medallist, with all the bumps along the way.

This presentation is perfect for both business and mainstream audiences; it will shift your perspective on the seemingly insignificant choices you make every day.

Stand out! (for the right reasons)

 Do you worry your business could be exposed to negative comments on social media because of disgruntled customers or poor communication? Do your staff have all the skills they need to make sure that doesn’t happen? And if it does…what then?

It's no secret - people judge your business or organisation based on their first impression. It’s always been that way, but the difference now is they're likely to form that view because of a comment made by someone in their social media network. One negative issue can go global in a heartbeat.

On top of that, ‘regular employees’ are now perceived as a highly credible source of information about a business, while the credibility of the boss has taken a nose dive. Everyone in your business has a new and critical role to play; whether they know it or not, they’re your secret reputation weapon.

We used to think we could create a good reputation through marketing or “spin”. Those days are gone. Now, to truly  stand out, we need to build "reputation capital" from the inside out.

Neryl draws on stories from her media career in this entertaining and inspiring presentation that changes how employees see themselves in the business – regardless of their role.


What you’ll take away:

  • Four killer strategies to build reputation capital in your business or organisation

  • Why 'spin' is dead, and what you now need to succeed

  • The high price of neglecting your reputational health

  • Why your survival depends on having a stand-out culture

 Perfect for: Managers, team leaders and employees at any level in a business or organisation.

OUTSTANDING Leadership in the spotlight

These days, the whole world is one giant media outlet. Your performance is being watched and judged by a global audience, and any boo-boo has the potential to spark a social media frenzy.

Leaders must adapt to this shifting environment – even if they didn’t begin their career in the digital age.

Just what does it take to be a leader in this sometimes blinding spotlight? You need to be an astute, credible and strategic communicator, able to persuade and influence while remaining authentic – and always respecting the critical contribution of your team.

Neryl has advised, coached and mentored leaders in government, business and the not-for-profit sector to have credibility, confidence and influence in all their interactions. She brings that experience – and her own track record in the media spotlight – to this vibrant presentation.

What you’ll take away:

  • How to communicate like a dynamo in the media and social media

  • The secrets that will save you in any high-stakes communication situation

  • How to stand up with confidence in front of any audience

Perfect for: Leadership teams, emerging leaders

Group size: recommended up to 40 (but more isn't a problem!)
