The disruptive forces shaping the world and how we should respond

This presentation or workshop overviews the key disruptive forces that are shaping the world right now, and highlights the new attitudes and actions required from your people. They need to be able to see beyond the next horizon, anticipating where disruptions will come from. They need to embrace experimentation. They must remove and renovate any systems that will block corporate agility. They must the take time to not work IN their businesses, but also ON their businesses, while at the same time ensuring that they continue to “do the next thing to be done”. And most importantly, they must deal with any orthodoxies – habits of thinking and action – that are holding their organisations hostage to the past.

Think like a Futurist - New thinking for a new world

The world we live and work in right now is characterized by complexity, uncertainty and turbulence. This makes choosing and implementing strategy more difficult than it’s ever been. This session aims to provide your team with the insights, mind-sets and tools needed to understand the forces shaping the world right now, and instill confidence in their ability to identify, anticipate and respond to the change drivers that will disrupt our world in the near future. The best way to predict the future is to create it. In the end, this is the key take away value from this keynote.

8 Skills for the Future of Work

The defining feature of the 2020's will be the automation of work. How should we future-proof our careers? Are there tasks that computers won't be able to do? Discover where our human competitive advantage lies and learn the skills that you and your team need to be successful in the workplace.

Leading in a Changing World - Lessons for Future Focused Leaders

This presentation or workshop begins by exploring the changed leadership context, identifying the reasons that yesterday’s leadership approaches are not adequate for the stormy present. The irrepressible forces of technology, demographics, institutional and structural changes together with value shifts, all impact on leadership. In a world where how we organize and go about our business is adapting constantly, leadership that remains fixed and static is rendered obsolete, irrelevant and even dangerous. Future-focused leaders will gain insight into what it takes to succeed in a time of disruptive change.

How to keep and engage your customers in a world of digital integration

The companies that are shaping the digital world in which we now live are growing at unprecedented rates and have an extraordinary influence on our lives and work. This session will provide a framework for you and your team to analyse your customer experience, your staff experience and your strategy, to ensure it matches the emerging DNA of the digital age. You'll leave with a deeper understanding of what it will take to be successful, with carefully chosen examples and case studies to motivate you, and a clear picture of what you can do to contribute to this. Insightful, eye-opening and laced with humour, this session will forever change the way you and your team see the future.

Mind the Gap - Understand and get the most out of different generations

A multi-media, humour-filled exploration of the different generations: how value systems are developed and how these influence attitudes and behaviours. By understanding the impact of different generations, inside and outside your organisation, you can improve customer relationships, and the productivity and interactions of your teams. Understand what shaped and formed Boomers, Gen Xers and Gen Y, and why younger and older people – staff, customers, family and friends – have such different expectations and approaches to life, leadership, work and relationships. Apply the insights immediately and change your company forever.

Graeme delivered a most thought provoking, interesting and engaging presentation the first event, so we invited him back…. twice! Each time he tailored his presentation to suit the different audiences, and each time they were enthralled, entertained and left contemplating his words how they can apply his new thinking to their own businesses. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.


The feedback I had was how it made people stop and think about how they act. Graeme had the whole audience entranced with his engaging presentation style and that was no mean feat after a whole day of presentations and being last on at 4pm! The content was absolutely spot on for our audience.

FSDF (Food Storage and Delivery Federation)

Graeme's talks are always inspiring and thought-provoking; his topic is well-researched and the message, although serious, is delivered in a humorous and informal manner.  His presentations are always extremely well received by our audiences and his talks have certainly had a favourable impact on the way in which we conduct business. In particular, Graeme's presentation on "The New Generation" has been a consistent favourite with our audiences.  It is a pleasure to work with Dr Codrington and his professionalism (on and off the stage), together with his values, result in a wonderful working relationship.  I can highly recommend him as a speaker.


Graeme was recommended to me by my marketing consultant as an appropriate speaker for the National Conference of The Corporate Finance Network – and boy, was she right! His presentation content was mindblowing, his delivery was professional and stylish and his slides were spot on. If you need a keynote to speak at your event about the future of business, hire him! I lost count of the number of times I heard delegates discussing his presentation in the bar on the evening after the event!
