This month's hot conference topics are healthy leadership, digital disruption, technology trends and as always, entertaining speakers. Renegade can help with a selection of speakers for these "must have" topics for your next event, but here are some you may not have thought about.

Press Pause for Play: Bringing the values home

Moya Sayer-Jones

In her work as a narrative, executive coach, Moya Sayer-Jones works in a clinical setting, supporting leaders and their families to navigate the extreme pressures of modern business and the competing demands of self, relationships and work. Her clients have often hit a crisis point – chickens have come home to roost.

In “Pause for Play: Bringing the values home”, Moya says ‘no’ to balance and instead explains how leaders can integrate their strengths and values to become not just great leaders, but healthy and inspired ones. She is a witty and entertaining speaker who infuses a serious topic with joie de vivre. Her presentation can be especially valuable to emerging leaders who will inevitably face conflicting and confusing demands.

Moya is a writer, narrative consultant and executive coach. She is best known to Australian audiences as a novelist and the original Modern Guru in the Good Weekend magazine.

Be Bowled Over...
