As an international keynote speaker, I prefer to deeply engage with my clients. Rather than popping in for the one or two hours of a presentation, I will spend at least one full day at your conference, attend sessions, participate in panels, and engage in conversations with participants. I believe that conversation is the best learning technology we have invented. For example, I often present a keynote on a select topic and follow this up later with a short workshop to discuss the subject deeper with those most interested.
Much of my work is focused on helping people learn new practices and change behaviours. These take time. My preferred way to work with clients is to commit to a period of six months, over which I am available for one to two days per month. Consultations for organizational change usually start with some onsite work and are supported with online video conferences, private discussions, and group work. This video gives a case study of working with a client to solve a complex problem.
“Harold has the rare talent of being both a thought leader and a pragmatic communicator. He is a pioneer in personal knowledge mastery — a skill just beginning to be recognized as critical in our digital age. He spoke to a group I manage in Paris composed of digital practitioners from global organizations headquartered in Paris. Harold had a strong impact on the way they now see their own professional development.”
