Nina's Keynotes:

Bridging the

Strategy-People Disconnect

In this engaging and insightful keynote Nina shares the key reasons your strategy may be failing to be achieved.

Bridging the disconnect between strategy and people’s needs, capabilities and motivations, she helps you see how your organisation can move that strategy from ideas on a page to realised high-performing outcomes.

Sharing insights from her book ‘Meaningful Work’ based on world-first  research, with many ‘aha’ moments you will come away with actual steps you can take to move your strategy forward. 

Meaningful Work, Meaningful Workplaces

Based on world-first research, in this keynote or masterclass, Nina shares deep wisdom from research, case studies and first-hand experiences in how you can find and create meaningful work.

Learn how to reap the personal benefits of meaningful work such as increased job satisfaction, better career advancement, mitigated work-related stress, and a positive influence on overall wellbeing, whilst also improving your organisational outcomes including higher levels of commitment, lower rates of absenteeism, and reduced turnover.

Come away with a completely different lens with which to view work – one that will give it a whole new meaning.

The ever-elusive executive presence. Something we all aspire to have.  Something we struggle to define. How do you know if you have it? How do you cultivate it? How do you build it in others? We can all recognise those leaders we feel have ‘it’, and we all know leaders we aspire to be like who display this quality.

In this keynote, Nina share’s some of the secrets of executive presence, including why being engaged in meaningful work will help elevate your executive presence, based on the research from her book, ‘Meaningful Work’.

Learn the secrets to cultivating this capability and see how it can help craft your career and increase the performance of your executive leadership team. 

Cultivating Executive Presence

We are taught that the fish rots from the head. This is true, and entirely crucial to set the tone. The standard we walk past is the standard we accept. However, grass roots matter too. Those grass roots are too often weeds, and too often we do walk past. It is time to entirely rethink how we manage company culture, and ensure we are not just focusing on the top.


With lessons from her book ‘Meaningful Work' based on world-first research, come away from this thought-provoking keynote with an entirely different view on culture.  Your takeaway will be a framework that gives you a sustainable approach to positive workplace culture. 

Culture Starts From the Top,

but Grass Roots Matter Too

Growth Mindset @ Work

Drawing on the work of Dr Carol Dweck, in this keynote or masterclass Nina takes a deep dive into how taking a growth mindset approach at work can improve outcomes for all aspects of work performance.


With practical application, it looks at how the theory can be applied to the different aspects of work giving real-life examples and exercises so delegates can apply it in their own workplaces.


Transformative in nature, adopting a growth mindset in work, and applying it across whole teams can create a common way of working that encourages everyone on a journey of improvement with better outcomes for all.

If you have ever been frustrated by your people not performing to the level you would like them to, this is the session for you. 

Understanding why one person's micro-management is another's clear direction is the key to getting your people to truly perform. We live in a world of work where our team expect to be managed on an individual level, and as leaders we are expected to change our style day-by-day, and it is increasingly hard to deliver.

In this keynote/masterclass Nina shares incisive tips and tricks to help you hack the system so you can better deliver, with less stress for yourself and the team.

Productivity & Performance

The participants are left with key takeaways, individualised to the person, with training handouts and reference materials to embed the learning for continual improvement.  

 “Everyone who works with [Nina] learns an immense amount" 

“We set Nina a challenge in her presentation with a wide variety of experience amongst attendees – but without exception she was able to connect to and inspire the entire audience.

Her message was delivered with such clarity that our team took away concrete actions for today and were begging to have her back!”
