Events

With 10+ years of experience as a keynote speaker, Albert Birck knows how to create a stir when sharing his vast experience within the Performance area. Keynotes are often a mix of best-practices and thought-provoking real-world examples. Focus is on engaging and encouraging the audience to reflect on how to drive an even stronger performance behaviour.

Some of the recurring themes are:

  • Setting the record straight: What is all this about Performance?
  • State-of-the-art for Performance: Is performance management dead? Then what?
  • What now for Performance in our organisation: Inspiration and discussion of the performance road map and performance maturity
  • Them or us? Using Performance to create systemic and sustainable improvements
  • Control or empowerment, stick or carrot? Leadership challenges for strategy execution
  • Data transparency: Why is analytics paramount for succeeding with Performance?
  • A tale from the dark side: What can we learn from performance management gone terribly wrong?

Book A Keynote

We tailor keynotes to the individual organisation and target audience, e.g. the c-suite, general managers, specialists or others. The format is typically a shorter presentation with or without group excercises and discussion.

Please see our training options if you are interested in something more hands-on than the keynote format allows.
