Keynote Topics


Discover how to identify the elements of a maverick idea, have the courage to develop them, gain momentum behind them and launch them into the world – or present them to your boss. Learn how to create, distil and pursue maverick ideas with clarity and focus in a fast-changing, ever-moving digital age.


Trust is hard-earned and easily lost yet it underpins so much of our commercial and personal success. Understand the neuroscience of giving and receiving trust and learn how to develop and hold the trust of your customers and colleagues with the lessons learned in this valuable presentation.


Lucy will take you on a roller coaster ride of fascinating experiences and business learnings from a 25-year career as a master communicator, world changer and trailblazer. Discover how to do business differently, why fun should be a factor in your strategic plan, why kindness and optimism feed your bottom line and how ordinary people do the extraordinary.


Behind the mohawk is a sharp business woman who has developed the tools for personal resilience and adaptability: from a motorcycle accident which almost claimed her life to the epic challenges of the start up world and the NFP boardroom. Lucy will show you how to inspire optimism and create value in the face of adversity and change.


Most of us will never jump from a plane into a war zone or face a firing squad and neither has Lucy! But she has learned how the most courageous people face fear and push through. Lucy illustrates how courage is not only the realm of front-line soldiers. It is acts of everyday heroism that make the world go round.
