No company can adopt real and lasting change if it doesn’t start at, come from, and get reinforced by the top. In this business development speech, Christopher seamlessly integrates your company’s story with his own experiences to create a one-of-a-kind power session where each business leader feels personally engaged to make a change. It’s not enough to be included. Your employees, customers, partners, and affiliates deserve to feel they belong and are wanted. Only when every player feels welcomed to the game can they contribute their best.
A part of the “The 5 A’s of Inclusion” program, this is one of two speeches that picks up where the seminar series ends. This speech is targeted at business owners, executive management, department heads, and human resources. It focuses on the inclusion-first initiatives small, medium, and mid-market businesses can adopt to foster meaningful and healthy change in the organization. It is also available to enterprises, including publicly traded companies.
This speech can be presented as part of a “The 5 A’s of Inclusion” engagement with Christopher or can be offered as a standalone speech among other topics from fellow thought leaders presenting at conferences and events. This is typically a 45-60 minute plenary speech that is suitable as an event keynote or can be trimmed to 30 minutes to be used as a conference session.
As the axiom goes: Lead by example! This speech will engender a sense of purpose and set the tone for owners and executive management to understand the example they need to set for their entire company. As such, to preparing for this topic to be presented directly to your company, Christopher requires the owner of private companies or the CEO and Board Chair of public companies to consult directly with him when planning the event. Event organizers considering this topic should consider the audience. Christopher will deliver this message with an expectation the audience will have the power to return to their companies and effect change in policies that will lead to improved business cultures.
