David Meade's Speaking Topics

  • Mind Your Business

Individuals who think better, perform better.

Drawing on the psychology of decision making, motivation, and mindset, this session shows how some very small changes can make the biggest difference to our ability to succeed. Delegates learn the science of persuasion and the proven principles of getting engagement and buy in for your new ideas or approaches, before exploring the real secrets behind the mindset of world class business performers.

  • Principles of Persuasion

The Science of Getting to Yes

High energy, interactive session, that equips delegates with persuasive trading, and language techniques to help them persuade and influence others, and/or to increase sales.

  • Engage for Success: Building Leaders, Building Teams

Research proves most teams are choosing to underperform.

With as much as 80% of team members disengaged, the need to push a reset button has never been greater. In this high octane keynote, attendees learn how to apply the proven behaviours of world class organisations like Apple, Facebook, and Google, and see how easy it can be for leaders and professionals to quash limiting beliefs, working together to break habits and traditions that are stifling performance.

  • Growth Mindset

Changing the way teams Think, Act, & Behave every day

High energy, interactive session, that challenges delegates to think about the role of mindset and the drivers of decisions that achieve engagement. They will be given a transferrable toolkit to use and motivate and engage those they work with.

  • Lead with your Head

A highly energetic and interactive session, that introduces delegates to the psychology of leadership, and provides them with a practical toolkit to make them a more effective leader.

  • Sustainable High Performance

Building business athletes through accountability and ownership.

The tools used by high performing teams and organisations have never been better understood, or been more attainable. Sharing a decade of research, this session lifts the lid on how the greatest performances do things differently, and how your team can too. They’ll leave the session more solution focused, better opportunity creators (not just opportunity spotters), and more equipped to deal with failure and negativity.
