“By one popular estimate 65% of children entering primary schools today will ultimately work in new job types and functions that currently don’t yet exist. ” – WeForum

Predictions indicate an unprecedented scale of disruption caused by the full realisation of automation and technology. To thrive in the rapidly advancing digital economy, those of us who work and lead will need to be prepared, but many of us are unsure how, or where to begin. Future Proof Me provides a unique opportunity to re-conceptualise what work looks like, and how we can leverage the Future Of Work (FOW) for greater happiness, greater workplaces, and social impact.

Learning Outcomes

Future Proof Me will provide your team with:

  • Clarity on what the future of work looks like, and how it impacts individuals, work, and communities.
  • Identification of the opportunities and challenges the future of work provides, in the context of you, your work, and your community.
  • Simple tactics that you and your team can employ, to positively impact what the future of work looks like.

Who It’s For

Organisations or community groups seeking to get ahead of the curve, cultivate an innovative environment, and future proof the happiness of their organisation and their people.


Vulnerability is the new authenticity and an underrated powerhouse for creating impactful change and amplifying the skills required in the future of work. – Penny Locaso

Imagine the innovation that could be created in your business if fear did not hold your women back. Imagine the leadership diversity of an organisation that encouraged women to bring their whole self to work.

Fear is often the number one barrier preventing your women from stepping into positive change, at work, and in life.  Many temper themselves and their brilliant ideas due to fear of failure, being exposed as an imposter or what others might think.  This eye-opening, tactics based program identifies what’s holding your women back and teaches them how to use fear to positively influence change, build confidence and practice resilience.

The Fear(less) Masterclass is a powerful way to innovatively shift the culture of your organisation by making fear a positive emotion that is shared, problem solved collectively, and celebrated, ultimately leading to more innovative thinking and improved change capability.



When was the last time you said yes to something you didn’t want to do in order to avoid a hard conversation? For many of us this is a daily practice. A practice that impacts our ability to do the work we love, live the life that we want, and leave the legacy we dream of.

Why do we do this? Because many of us suffer from People Pleaser Syndrome, avoiding difficult conversations out of the fear of feeling uncomfortable and potentially damaging relationships.


The Art Of No will teach your people how to:

  • Step into each opportunity with conscious intention.
  • Take back control of how they respond under stress.
  • Build resilience through the practice of getting comfortable with discomfort.
  • Improve influencing and conflict management skills.
  • Improve productivity.

Move closer to what they want in work and life quicker, through the elimination of unnecessary noise


  • Clarity on where to invest energy and resources in order to build confidence and maximise productivity.
  • A new positive language to use when faced with a difficult conversation to help shift mindset and build change capability.
  • A set of evergreen tools that can be used to tackle having hard conversations and support building ongoing resilience and confidence.
  • An action plan that will enable your people to remove the barriers associated with difficult conversations and delivering a No.
  • Improved confidence to bring who they truly are to work and life, supporting greater diversity in your organisation.
  • A deeper level of trust and connection amongst peers based on the personal experiences shared in the room

Senior leadership teams and high performing professionals seeking to bring the best version of themselves to work and life.


How many of your people have brilliant ideas that could shift your business? Ideas that never see the light of day due to overwhelm and a lack of skill and resources to make it happen?

Do you observe departmental teams competing and withholding rather than coming together to innovate?

Have you truly explored the possibilities of external collaboration partners to build your problem solving capability, brand, market share or skills and resources?

The Innovation Exchange workshop brings business divisions together for shared outcomes. It provides the foundation to turn the seemingly impossible into possible and turbo charge ideas into tangible action.

Learn how to:

We believe the world of tomorrow is going to fundamentally shift due to the rapid growth of technology. We are fascinated in what this means on an economic, environmental and sociological level. Everyone has a perspective as to what opportunities and impacts this will have on all of us in the context of work and life.

Wine & Whiteboards is a team building event that searches social challenges and devises possible solutions for de-risking and positively impacting our future in creative ways that hopefully bring more enjoyment to what we do.


  • Empathy and understanding of what motivates the belief systems of others
  • Next level connection based on what truly matters to your peers
  • Shifted perspectives around social issues
  • Innovative problem solving, ideation and often a desire to explore further

Who It’s For
