Leonard Brody
LEONARD BRODY | Business and Technology Vision

In Australia July 2014

Technology, people, digital media, generations, markets, rapid change and a diverse workforce are a handful of topics we are examining in business today. Sometimes this environment can make us feel like we are operating inside a blender. There is a lot of 'noise' and the highway of information is moving at great speed. How do we use change and progression as leverage within business? How do we get the formula right for our companies and people? What can we learn from past experiences? What do we need to unlearn and change as we plan for the future?

Leonard Brody has his eye on the game and identifies we are at a cross road in history. He is a highly respected entrepreneur, venture capitalist, best-selling author and a 2 time Emmy nominated media visionary known for comfortably challenging audiences to consider this "new world order". He is a modern pioneer of our time and has been named one of Canada's Top 40 under 40.

He is current, cutting edge and can evidence his concepts and ideas.  He shines the light on topics such as digital media, shifts in technology, leadership, demographics, innovation, adaptation and our changing behaviours.

Shane Koyczan
Award Winning Poet, Author and Spoken Word Artist

In Australia in July 2014

The world took notice of Shane when his influential, anti-bullying, “To This Day Project” video went viral in early 2013 with 10 million views.

Powerfully engaging and authentic in attitude, Shane’s explorations are relevant to our times in the way that Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen were to theirs. But unlike the musicians that he’s often compared to, poets rarely infiltrate pop culture. Shane emerges in a new wave of 21st century poetry that dares to belong to the people and speak directly to them in their own voice.

Shane performs as a solo artist or with a 3 – 6 musical accompaniment. His unique presentation is ideal as a conference opening or closing.
