A keynote presentation may well be the entire foundation for your workplace. They are usually opening or closing presentations that inspire, peak interest, inform and entertain!

An opening keynote sets the tone for the entire conference/meeting. It establishes the receptivity, openness, energy and expectations for the day. It sets up the other speakers and workshops for success. A closing keynote establishes the attitude that the people in the conference leave with. It reflects on the main ideas of the day, crystallizes some inspiration to action and validates the attendees. It should also add a few more new ideas and concepts for people to leave with.


The following are three simple, powerful and fundamental principles for making changes as a result of a training event:


If you are not aware of a recent developments or new insights you will nor be able to renew yourself. You can’t change what you don’t know. There is a need for openness and receptivity order to know what direction you need to pursue.


Acceptance is about ownership and understanding of the information and commitment to application. It implies a change of position in some cases. If a person does not take personal responsibility for his or her own professional growth, then the process is doomed from the start.


Some people are enlightened and committed to make the changes, but for some reason they don’t ever act on the situation and do things differently. Change requires that you act on what you have learned. It’s not what happens to you in life that counts, it’s how you choose to deal with it!!
