When Skype came into the picture, it totally disrupted the long distance calling industry. When the email came, the post office lost its mojo. When the Apple IPhone was introduced, Blackberry and Nokia became casualties. What happens when companies that have enjoyed the limelight for a century like Kodak, plateau and ignore innovation? – Disruption. Disruption is when the entry of one innovative player into the market radically changes and redefines the scenario favourably for them and significantly disastrous for others. In this frank and riveting keynote, Dr Thando Sibanda takes the audience into the realities of staying ahead of the game through principles of disruption.

The Podium Finish – Winning is intentional

The world celebrates a Podium finish…we all love the Gold, Silver& Bronze. No one is appreciated just for showing up…through conquest; one must take their place on the Winner’s Podium!  Life has its podium moments. These are ephemeral seasons of Appreciation, Acclaim and Celebration in recognition of outstanding human endeavour.

While many appreciate the moment and its glory, the other side is an endorsement of the process and the journey, together with its challenges and feats. A podium moment is not a culmination of itself…It’s a result of focused action which leads to expected, exponential results.

This inspirational keynote is ideal for sales teams and work environments that are deadline and goal driven. The Power of your Print – Living life on purpose Everyone is born with a purpose print – This is the complete ideal picture of your fulfilling existence.

The individual must intentionally decipher and engage their purpose print. There are 4 keys or prints that unlock the greater life of purpose. In the Power of your print, Dr Thando Sibanda deconstructs the 4 major prints of your life that connect one to purposeful living.

The Four prints are: 

Your Blue Print ( Focusing on Purpose)  Finger Print( Identity) Thumb Print( Brand proposition) and Footprint( Influence)  Each of the 4 sessions for the day will focus on a different print and help attendees understand the power of the print and how to unlock their print in the individual and business context.It is within this model that the other teachings i do come in under specific prints.
