Leadership Action Network


Join the LEADERSHIP ACTION NETWORK (LAN) for inspiration and connections to tackle your biggest leadership challenges.

LAN meets for a breakfast once every month with a different topic and speaker each time. Each session goes through our JumpShift DIAGNOSE - INSPIRE - YOUR ACTION process which cements learning with each attendee walking away with clear actionable goals.

Some of our previous topics have included Leading Agility, The Future of Leadership Development, The Change Equation, The Power of Coaching, Tackling Leadership Gremlins, Kindness, Mindfulness, Storytelling for Leadership, Resilience for Change, Design Thinking For Leaders, Team Effectiveness, Leading Through Purpose and Leveraging Social/Digital Media for Leadership. 

In 2020 we've got another awesome lineup of speakers and breakfast sessions in the works. We've also put together a LAN package where you can get your tickets, in advance, for a heavily reduced price. Check this out down below and stay in touch on upcoming sessions here

Purposeful Storytelling Masterclass

FRIDAY 31st July 2020

Public speaking is a skill set which needs to be nurtured and developed along with storytelling techniques. When combined they provide a powerful strategy which is guaranteed to have a positive impact on achieving communication that resonates. This will be both a contextualising presentation plus a participatory element, applying the learning gained and exploring new ways of doing, failing and succeeding. This Leadership Action Network Breakfast will cover:

  • Why story is still king
  • What personal qualities to amplify
  • Where TED/TEDx gets it right / wrong
  • Which body language techniques resonate
  • How to communicate without saying a word
