Keynote Topic #1


Unpredictability is very much still with us. In order to adapt successfully, organisations need to have adaptable employees. Perceived organisational support is a prerequisite for employee adaptability. Employees need to feel safe to experiment, take risks and explore the unknown. Contrary to what some may say, positive leadership does not lead to reckless optimism but rather it creates an environment that reinforce agility and adaptability. 

In this talk, Organisational Behaviourist, Siphiwe Moyo shows leaders how to:

  • Get results by giving trust
  • Create psychological safety necessary for adaptability
  • Encourage divergent views without affecting morale
  • Focus on strengths and capabilities
  • Enable flourishing and thriving through caring for employees
Keynote Topic #2


The ever-changing global landscape brings with it uncertainty about the future of work, which often leaves employees feeling bewildered.

And, as the pace of change rapidly increases, many have already reached their capacity to absorb and respond to their environment. In non-turbulent times, a balance of push and pull strategies is often enough for a leader to get results through others but in times of crisis a little more is required. In times of crisis, leaders need to communicate more not less. Leading in turbulent times can tear leaders apart.

Hard times can become even lonelier for leaders, since they must project a positive but realistic spirit. Siphiwe shows leaders research based strategies on how to get that balance between being candid and still projecting a positive spirit right.

Keynote Topic #3


The toughest person you will ever  have to lead is you. Leadership Attribution Error has the  potential to be a problem in the workplace. Too much  emphasis on the role of leader means that followers may  abdicate responsibility for their motivation levels, beliefs,  values, behaviours and ultimately performance.

Though he  highlights factors that may affect employee performance, in this keynote, Siphiwe teaches audiences how to lead  themselves.

In this keynote Siphiwe argues that leading other people is not  very complicated. There are three ways to get results through  other people:

1. You can inspire them through a compelling  vision

2. You can induce them incentives

3. And if all else fails, you can just threaten them.

    “Mr. Moyo was an engaging and energetic speaker who mixed personal narrative, comedy and business insights into his message. To his credit, Mr. Moyo tailored his presentation to his African audience with perspectives that were authentic and relevant. The crowd loved his humour and spoke highly of his ability to speak as “one of us”. With his ability to mix African perspectives with universal business trends, Mr. Moyo is a strong option for EMEA events.”
