Every keynote is bespoke and Cherona D will liaise with the event organiser or HRD team to ascertain the vision of their event and the current challenges faced by their industry and organisation. Below are elements of keynotes with different key focus areas and will be adapted in accordance to the audience and outcomes desired.

Authentic leadership foils traditional game plans

Being authentic is the foundation for successful leadership. However, most leaders lack the necessary self-awareness to be who they really are on a consistent basis. As a consequence, leaders might think they are being the best version of themselves, but in reality there is a gap between how they see themselves and how others experience them. This gap is a risk because the primary way to truly engage and inspire others is through building strong emotional connection based on authenticity. Minds work differently, authentic leadership embraces the diversity and strength of a neurodiverse workplace and actively pursues ways to include constant learning and adaptation.

  • Shape your personal leadership brand based on purpose, values and strengths·
