Join Mark Ritson, brand consultant and former marketing professor, for a discussion and debate on how we can improve brand research.

3. Become a Leader’s Leader

With Fabian Dattner
Friday 7 May, 11 am – 1 pm (AEST)
Research Society Member Price: $200

Learn how to affect change. Join highly regarded change agent and leadership activist, Fabian Dattner in this interactive session. Fabian will provide practical insights into:

  • Self talk and how to change the story
  • Power of the pause
  • 1% gain
  • Engaging people (purpose, values, strategy)
  • Letting go of control
  • Influencing
  • Playing politics constructively

The structure of leadership has, in large part, for over 2,000 years, followed a military model: hierarchical, power vested in the few, follow the leader without question. That is not the world we live in. Now anyone, anywhere can rise up to shape the world we live in from tech/ ecommerce start ups (i.e. Envato, Canva, Adore Beauty) to street activists and change agents (i.e. Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thundberg, Licypriya Kangujam). The world we have created is too complex to vest decision making at the top of a hierarchy. We need many sharing common cause and acting. This 2 hour workshop focusses on what you can do to affect change – for yourself, others and in the context in which you live. Inspiring, practical and interactive session. A conversation with a highly regarded change agent and leadership activist.
