Speaker Bio

In being true to his own ambitions and relentless pursuit of growth, Peter Sheahan has published seven books, built three global companies and delivered more than 2,500 presentations in 40+ countries.

After decades of standing in the fire with leaders of high-performing organizations, Peter Sheahan has come to believe that an organization will only go commercially where its leaders first go personally.

Having grown his own companies by accelerating the growth and transformation for clients that include: Apple; Chick-fil-A; DeBeers; and AT&T -- Peter will provoke you to get bigger, by getting better!

When leaders are true to their purpose, they gravitate towards doing work that matters and solving higher-order problems.

The journey to get there requires that they have the courage to tell themselves the truth, take intelligent risks, and assume ownership for driving the alignment necessary to build an organization which behaves in ways worthy of its leadership position.

Today he and his team at Karrikins Group are focused exclusively on inspiring leaders to do the hard work required to accelerate growth and transformation.

Keynote Topic #1

    Matter

    How to become the obvious choice

    As the pace of commoditization accelerates and the emergence of technological disruption threatens our existing business models, we must find ways to remain relevant and differentiated in the hearts and minds of our customers! This inspiring, case-study rich session will show you how to find opportunity in disruption to reverse the downward spiral of commoditization and matter more to your customers than your competition.

    This journey will require that you:

    • Understand the difference between value creation and value extraction
    • Move towards the very disruption that challenges you and your customers
    • Elevate your Impact in the Five Critical Dimensions that clients and customers value most during times of rapid change
    • Elevate your Perspective by learning at the ‘Edge of Disruption’ and becoming a thought leader in the business models of tomorrow
    • Elevate your Relationships to position you not just as a trusted adviser but as a strategic partner for your customers
    • Act in a way worthy of your desired leadership position

     

Keynote Topic #2

    Leading with Intentional Optimism

    Make the shift from defense to offense and seize the opportunities in disruption

    Leaders must be pragmatic in the face of the real challenges presented by Covid-19, however at some point they must choose whether they are going to create their future reality or passively accept their fate. Intentional Optimism is a new way of leading that unleashes the agency and influence we all have over our reality and combines the importance of pragmatism with the power of boldness to position ourselves to make the most of opportunity.

Keynote Topic #3

    High Performance in a Hybrid World

    Accelerating a culture of accountability and driving effective alignment

    The truth is people don’t really know how to work together as effectively virtually, but with the right mindset, team dynamics, and environment, a leader can intentionally curate a culture of accountability, innovation and high engagement even in a remote setting. Culture is a science, not an art and there is a blueprint for driving high performance in a work-world defined by social distance norms.

          Peter, you amaze me. Your ability and willingness to customize material that resonates with audiences and reinforces brand goals is incredible. Your performance for my client last week was right on target, and the material was 90 per cent new from the material you used with another of my clients just ten months ago

          Peter Sheahan is one of those people. Arguably the world leading expert in generational change, I have no hesitation recommending Peter to any organization looking to drive innovation deeper in their company, and wanting to inspire their leaders to think differently and take the necessary risk to future-proof the business.”
