Nick Jankel

Thought Leader, Leadership Futurist, Transformation Catalyst, Founder Switch On

Thought leader Nick Jankel switches on people all over the planet with the limitless opportunities of the Networked Age…and how to leave behind redundant Industrial-Age thinking, mindsets, and processes that block us from fulfilling our potential as leaders and as organisations. A former elite scientist, Nick has spent close to 30 years developing a rigorous brain-based methodology and complete toolset for personal and organisational transformation – the hardest tasks in the world – that ensure his clients such as Unilever, HSBC, Kelloggs, Zalando, and Nike are match fit for the future.

Having initially made his name as an innovation guru behind the global launch of Xbox and the development of the most successful TV show of all time (Dancing with Stars / Strictly Come Dancing), Nick realised that the ability of people to think and act differently are always the keys to long-term success. A purpose-driven entrepreneur since the age of 24, he has dedicated his life to mastering the skills and qualities needed to drive change and thrive in a VUCA world. He believes that transformational leadership – the ability to change what you do and how you do it to stay on top – is your only source of continuous competitive advantage and the only factor in your complete control.

He customises every talk with relevant examples, stories from the frontlines, and nuggets of science and wisdom to help audiences develop adaptive strategies, business model innovations, purpose-driven organisations and systemic change.

Topics

Transformative Leadership in the VUCA World

Rapid change, uncertainty and complexity is driving Industrial-Age companies to fail. What got them here will not get them there. Nick explains how leaders can master themselves so they can turn constant change outside into exponential value - transforming processes, products and people at will.

Digital Transformation & Corporate Culture Change

Digital age technologies and the 4th Industrial Revolution are forcing all organisations to transform inside. Yet over 65% of all change programs fail. Nick explains how to master change and leverage emotions, mindsets and behaviour to land digital transformation.

Inspirational Leadership & Empowering Teams

Inspired employees are 125% more productive than satisfied ones. Nick explains how leaders can use purpose, empowerment, emotive communication, self-mastery and storytelling to inspire others to change, create and collaborate.

Purposeful Leadership & Business Purpose

How to unleash the creative engines of enterprise with business purpose and leadership to maximize impact and value; why purpose is so powerful and so welcomed by customers and employees; and how to define different forms of purpose.

Agility, Adaptability & High-Performance Teams

Rapid change demands we must all be more agile with our ideas and behaviours. But fear, friction, groupthink and entrenched habits get in the way. Nick explains how leaders can create the conditions for agility, adaptability and pace.

Influential Leadership, Persuasion & Storytelling

Matrix organisations and complex markets mean that leaders must know how to grab attention and ensure alignment without recourse to command and control. Nick explains how to ethically use persuasion and storytelling to influence people - whether customers or employees - painting pictures of possibility that inspire hearts, elevate minds and invite immediate action.
