Curiosity: the Key Ingredient for Creating a Winning Culture

Research has shown that forward looking curious companies are nore innovative and competitive vs their peers. In this keynote we explore how the c-suite can influence their organizations by embracing the power of curiosity.

Leading with Curiosity

The shadow a leader casts on her/his team is often more important than one realises. Curious leaders uplift their teams, while incurious leaders stifle it. In this keynote, we will explore strategies for leaders to embrace curiosity and create high-performing, engaged and motivated teams.

Thank you for your great talk at our Speexx Exchange As many of my colleagues will testify, I can be quite critical and demanding when it comes to trainers/coaches/hosts/speakers, and so it’s only fair that I also voice my appreciation when I see a talk which is brilliantly delivered. You had me hooked after two minutes and I was sad when the 90 minutes were over. Thank you very much for that!”

Stefaan has proven an excellent speaker choice at the events I chair. He is clearly deeply knowledgeable about workplace curiosity and is able to share his expertise in an engaging way with his audience. He backs this up with his global experience as a Chief Learning Officer in large corporations, which provides real gravitas and credibility. There's no doubt that Stefaan is providing leading thinking and practice in this field and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
