A sought after advisor and leading authority on entrepreneurial, engaging, ethical and effective leadership, Prof Roebuck possesses a vast experience and innumerable insights with which he can intimately taylor his presentation to any audience for a simple route to rapidly make them a member of the elite group of truly effective, inspiring and respected leaders in their organisation, today and in the future. This is achieved via his new approach to leadership–Mach 2–that has been described by a leading Professor of Psychology as a “breakthrough” in thinking and which Harvard Business Review have interviewed him about in Beijing.

His unique approach inspires leaders from around the world with its simplicity and effectiveness. He uses the leaders’ own experiences, combined with his approach, to show how “world-class” performance is possible, and how this can deliver improvement in not only performance, but also in customer service, managing risk, innovation, managing change, cost efficiency, and the handling of other critical challenges.

Chris presents his secrets for success to audiences small and large, including to groups of 1,000+ people, from CERN, NASA, science and business, and at global “thought leaders’” forums.

5 Actions for Assured Success: New Keynote and Masterclass with Chris Roebuck

Recently at the HR 360 conference in Vienna, Chris Roebuck presented a new 5 point plan to unleash the real potential of organizations through their people. This provided the HR Directors present not with general theories, but with a specific and simple proposal to put to CEOs, CFOs and other senior leaders together with a 5 point action plan to make it work. This 5 point plan can be implemented by any organization, anywhere, at virtually no cost and is proven to deliver significant benefits. His talk was very well received by audience members.

Chris Roebuck presents a Case Study, I Care Leadership: From Keynote to Wider Success.

The approach of delivering an inspirational keynote that then encourages organisations to make the key ideas a reality back at work significantly increases the perceived value of the initial event and the return on investment for attending it. Chris Roebuck now offers a number of examples where this has worked extremely well : conference keynote, invitation to address leadership team, adoption of I CARE principles, masterclasses for leaders in organisation, work with HR and change champions.
