Zoë Routh – Speaker

Leadership Speaker, Author, Mentor, and Adventurist

“Choose: How to lead in moments that matter most”

The perfect presentation to entertain and inspire leaders to step up and be brave.

Key Points:

Leaders are expected to deliver results, craft a brilliant and innovative strategy, and nurture high performing teams in a synergistic culture. This of course must be the envy of the bean-bag and billiard table brood of the nouveau corporate hipsters. Leaders are expected to be the hard-nosed authoritarian and the soft-hearted listener, the cutting edge innovator and the herald of corporate heritage. Leaders are hung between tensions and are often left swinging.

And yet it’s not the strategy or indeed the culture that bridges the different expectations. It’s in the moment where real leadership happens. What we do, how we show up, makes or breaks our reputation and our relationships. These moments may be small, but they matter. The trick is to know what is a moment that matters, and what to do in it.

Ponder if you will…

  • What are the moments that matter most in leadership?
  • How do you know when you’re in one of those moments?
  • What do you need to think, be, and do in order to make the most of these?

Zoë will explain how making the most of moments is your number one leadership priority.  She will share three critical aspects of leadership connection that will allow you to make magic moments, not missed moments.

“Grace Under Fire: Be the one they turn to, not run from”

Great entertaining presentation to help leaders build confidence and influence.

Key Points:

  • Do you worry about how you come across as a leader?
  • Do you try hard to get heard and taken seriously?
  • Do you want to keep a cool head when everyone else is losing theirs?

Zoë will explain why Grace Under Fire – the ability to stay calm under pressure –  is more important than ever for leaders.  She will share three critical aspects of leadership connection that will allow you to double your influence and halve your people stress.
