ADAPT – Adapting to stay Left of Boom
If the Teens were the decade of disruption, then the 20s are the decade of Adaptation. Adaptive Leadership is a crucial skill that enables organisations to lead through uncertainty with purpose and adapt to new operating environments. Organisations with high adaptive capacity realise opportunities faster than their competition, respond more effectively to change and engage their stakeholders in trusted relationships.
As we emerge from the shadow of COVID and with geopolitical tensions posing real and virtual threats that we’ve never experienced before, our ability to adapt to the changing environment and prepare ourselves for the next age of economic evolution is going to be crucial.
In this keynote, Grant uses case studies and examples of crises that he has directly supported to demonstrate the importance of adaptive leadership in a world of uncertainty.
CYBER CRISIS – “It’s not a matter of If, but when”
“Don’t look at these events as black swans… I don’t think any business should plan around what if, every business should plan on when.”
Thomas Knudsen, Chairman of Toll Group
With recent events such as the Optus Data Breach, the Medibank data breach and other recent cyber incidents, organisations are facing more scrutiny for the way they respond to a cyber crisis than ever before. In this keynote presentation, Grant takes the audience into the war room of a cyber crisis and shares some insights into the realities of a cyber event and how you can prepare yourselves for the worst case.
- Data as a liability or an asset – Knowing the true value of the data you hold – and how this expedites your response in the event of a breach.
- To Pay or Not to Pay – Ransom decision making.
- Victims vs Villains – The changing expectations on organisations and the importance of empathy for the breached.
- Preparing your organisation for the worst case – How to scale your crisis response quickly to address the simultaneity of issues in a cyber event.
