It's our 3rd birthday and we couldn't be happier!

The quote that always resonates is "What if I fall?" And it's answering quote of "What if you fly?" and how we get stuck in all the "what ifs and if onlys" in life.

3 years ago we were presented with the opportunity to fly, and with the encouragement of family, friends, and a few special speaker peeps, we took off!

The journey has been amazing, and we think 2019 and 2020 are only going to get better!!

8 days until we get to hang out with the lovely @risha.grant!

The 2019 IASBTalks sessions are just one of the highlights of the biggest gathering of speakers bureau agents, and she's one of only 6 selected!

She'll be providing us with steps to identify, own and confront our own bias; by calling BS on the issues that stop us from building boss teams and attracting diverse markets.

What would the world be like if the great innovators never existed?

Imagine if Thomas Edison’s light bulb never glowed, or if Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone didn’t ring. If Charles Babbage, the inventor of the first computer went in a different direction, what would Steve Jobs have done?

But it’s not just technology that has benefited from innovation. We have also benefited from innovation in processes, systems, packaging, culture, business models, routes to market, and more.

How about innovating the customer experience? Alan O'Neill is an expert in this new battleground in the digital world.

You need to be examining your entire network and its influence on your life.

You’re not the average of the FIVE people you surround with. It’s way bigger than that. You’re the average of all the people who surround you. So take a look around and make sure you’re in the right surroundings. Don't let someone else drag you down or hold you back!

Mosaics. Gen Z. Post-Millennials.

It doesn't matter what name they go by, what does matter is that they're the most diverse, liberal, and distinctive cohort of teenagers and young 20 something's in US history. And they are reshaping society.

Paul Taylor's presentations help audiences understand who these young adults are, what makes them tick, and how they're different from previous generations.

It's like the Einstein quote about doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, or the good old quote about not being able to see the forest but for the trees; change your perspective.

Speakers travel and learn from others so much, when clients bring them into an event it's amazing the different perspectives and insights they can bring.

Your path to greatness isn’t about you mimicking the activities of other successful people so perfectly that you wind up automatically creating a magical future for yourself. It’s about being effective.

It’s really that simple. The concept at least, but having Dan in for the keynote version helps so much more.

With a great culture and an engaged workforce, you can take on the world. Others might copy your strategy – but no one can copy your culture. Culture is about mindset, attitudes and behaviors. It’s the software of the mind!

Alan O'Neill engages his audiences to learn where culture fits in to their big picture, what it is, why it's important, and how it's measured.

"I love reading spreadsheets and graphs, and analyzing it all day" said almost no one ever! Except analysts! Are you one?

Probably not, so how do you read data on how to market to the coming generations? What are their spending trends, political impacts, what do you do or who do you go to predict outcomes?
Mosaics have grown up in an online universe that results in data, and Paul Taylor helps identify and explain what the numbers mean and what's coming down the pipe; and what you can do to ride the wave!

Alan's topics and areas of expertise cover the following:

  • Dare to Change - How to overcome resistance to change and embrace it as a new norm.

Full topic Overviews here.........

About Alan O'Neill:
Alan O’Neill is an international business speaker & consultant, and non-exec board director working with blue-chip organisations across the spectrum of industry. In a dynamic world, he knows what it takes to drive change in a business – from top to bottom… and back to front. It’s about having a Customer-centric Culture, Engaged People, and a Supercharged Sales effort.

Change is all about people and culture and one sector in particular that has probably seen more disruption than any other is retail. Alan's expertise & involvement in the Selfridges story is one that resonates across all industries. Alan was the lead consultant that navigated Selfridges through the significant change of ‘bricks only’ to ‘clicks and bricks’. Up to 2004, Selfridges was a sleeping giant - but is now officially the best department store in the world… and one of the most profitable.

It is this unrivaled business acumen that has seen Alan chair and speak at conferences around the world and conduct master-classes with C-Level executives. He asks hard and uncomfortable questions, e.g. Should you refresh your culture to prepare for emerging global challenges? How will you overcome cynicism and resistance to change? How do you overcome complacency and lack of accountability? How will you differentiate with a customer-experience culture? How do you retain the best talent? How do you increase sales in a challenging and disruptive global market?

Alan will adapt his countless stories, business models and real-life case studies in his specialist topics…and with every engagement, Alan takes time to understand the brief, the objectives, the challenges… and builds empathy before meeting his audience.
Energetic, passionate and engaging… he will leave your audience with thoughts & ideas that are guaranteed to provoke, inspire and give hope.

Risha Grant took a lot of heat Wednesday on social media from the Black Enterprise Magazine article published from a question on her FB Post about what black people do that irritate white people.

She asked this question because she already understands as a black woman and D&I Professional what white people do that irritate black people. She wanted to have equal balance for a major client project she was working on and asked to see if her white friends would list anything she wasn’t aware of.

Risha goes on to mention "A lot of black people are asking “why should we care?” and saying that this is bad journalism. I say this with love for my people but last time I checked, good journalism was getting both sides of every story to accurately report the issue. My platform is about creating understanding & moving the needle in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. So...sorry, not sorry!"

On another note, Black Enterprise Writer, Lydia T. Blanco, wrote an awesome feature on her & how black women can build allies in the workplace. It also offers some context around the article.

Risha D. Grant featured in Black Enterprise magazine with a very interesting counter to an article previously published; they wrote a list of things that white people should never say to their black co-workers.

Now, Risha Grant, a public relations professional and diversity and inclusion expert, asked white people on her Facebook feed, to list the things that black people say or may do that annoy them.

An interesting read with some insights into workplace culture many may not recognize as #unconciousbias.

Who would have imagined that working at Boston Pizza almost 20 years ago would result in one of the nicest people building our website???

After months of work, countless late nights and early mornings, @spiztech busted down the wall that was our landing page and revealed our website.

@risha.grant has a simple three-step process, where employees & management will be able to identify, own, and confront their bias; this leads audiences to a new place of respect, understanding and inclusion.

This results in an energized workforce focused on diverse teams that generate new ideas, better performance, and sales. This training is for employees, managers and leaders from small businesses to major corporations, it will help teach members HOW to build a culture of inclusion and leverage it to improve performance and output.

Busy lady, last week Risha finished off her trip to DC with an interview with Bruce Johnson WUSA 9, on his program Off Script. They start the discussion based on the FBI's release of data saying hate crimes spiked 17 percent in 2017, and then moved into some ideas and what we as individuals can do help change the conversation.

Too often we're listening waiting for that moment to "jump in" instead of listening to understand. We need to look for commonalities, not differences says Risha Grant.
