Performance Through People – the mindset and patterns of behaviour by successful teams (including bees!)

Here’s the footage from a TEDx event. I was tempted to take a jar of honey from the farm for everyone in the audience but I figured the airline would spot me trying to sneak a few hundred kilos onboard as hand luggage! 

Practical messages with inspiring insights

Jamie has helped teams and audiences around the world understand the mindsets of success, but also with practical advice to apply his insights. His specialist topics include:

  • The required mindset and process for achieving your greatest imaginable challenge

Making history exciting - First Crossings & Intrepid NZ

Over the last five years, audiences around the world have enjoyed watching Jamie and Kevin re-create pioneering trips from around New Zealand.

The stories and lessons from these trips inspire audiences to re-think what how they approach innovation, teamwork, resilience and communication. Wearing hobnail boots to the office, though, is optional!

Keynote: "Performance Through People"

Keynote example:
Getting people on the bus – or under it! Embracing change in an era where there’s no alternative.

When it comes to change (or dealing with tough times), people often feel like it’s being done ‘to them’. Understanding how people accept change, and the possible responses, could determine if you’ll even achieve what you wanted to in the first place.
