Making Change Happen

Presented by Northern Territory Government

The biggest challenge for most organisations in driving change and innovation, lies in making change happen.  

Most people resist innovating because it seems too big, too hard and too scary. But innovation is achievable one small, doable step at a time. 


Nigel Collin is a global thought leader on leading change.  As a keynote speaker, he helps organisations and their people embrace change and act on it every day.

It is when people take ownership of change that excellence thrives.


This requires two things.

A shift in mindset that change is achievable one small, doable step at a time, and having a process for change to occur everyday.


This session is for business owners and leaders wanting to inspire and enable their teams to achieve a mindset for adopting and exploiting innovation every day and more importantly, acting on it.


This keynote presentation will:


1. demonstrate that change is a game of inches and not a one-off event;

2. help you understand, how to help your team embrace change; and

3. apply having a 'growth mindset' for you, your team and your organisation.


A Masterclass with Nigel Collin is also on offer, more information available here.
