For more than 20 years, Cyriel Kortleven - Making Change Simple has been inspiring organisations like IKEA, NASA and Unilever to approach Change with courage, confidence and enthusiasm. My pragmatic advice has earned me the nickname The Simplifier. In an increasingly complex world, we need new simple perspectives to enable us to navigate uncertainty and to turn problems into opportunities.
Be ready for practical tips & tools to help you as a leader drive behavioural change. Your audience will be armed with new language and a boost of energy to transform the fear of change into a positive attitude towards the goals you want to achieve. I use interaction and humour to create a context where people think and feel differently to reignite their appetite for creativity, taking risks and achieving ambitious results.
Don’t mind the change. Change your Mind.
Why should you work with Cyriel?
Four reasons why Cyriel is your perfect speaker
You want to receive a simple and pragmatic message to support your organisation to navigate uncertainty and to turn problems into opportunities. My clients gave me the nickname 'The Simplifier' due to my very simple and positive approach to cope with change.
You get 20 years of experience in the domain of change, creativity and innovation condensed in an engaging presentation. More than 250 recommendations on LinkedIn are proof of my track record from satisfied clients like IKEA, NASA and Unilever.
You can put me in front of an international audience because I have already delivered paid speeches in 33 countries on five continents. As a Global Speaking Fellow (an award that only 35 people in the world received), I’ll ensure that your message is strengthened especially in a culturally diverse environment.
You deserve a speaker who goes the extra mile. Don't expect a standard presentation. You will get an experience. I love to work in an interactive way (even during online sessions) and I combine stories, props, exercises, examples, … with a lot of humour to make sure that the content will be remembered years after I have spoken.
