- What the Smartest Guys in the Room Know about Inclusion
Managing diversity will be a key skill for the 21st century. With an increasingly diverse talent pool and marketplace, those who can work inclusively will be the leaders of tomorrow. In her latest talk, Dr. Doyle-Morris explores the practical steps individuals can take to embrace difference – and what’s in it for them if they do. She’ll draw on the experiences of both modern men and historical figures to illustrate how being progressive on social change helped propel these men into the history books. This talk enables the ‘smartest guys’ and women in your audience, to use what those leaders knew, to their own advantage.
- Why Innovation is the New Normal: Staying ahead in the 21st century
Personal re-invention and innovation is now the name of the game. Dr. Doyle-Morris will discuss what automation through technology and the rise of global outsourcing means for your career. She’ll discuss why innovators will lead the future and how she went from an American technophobe to a Scottish video game designer and how she’s using technology to get employees talking about unconscious bias. She’ll discuss the key skill of the ‘irrepressible innovator’ and how to use creativity, collaboration and critical thinking to set yourself apart in a marketplace where ‘jobs for life’ are a thing of the past and the prizes will go to those who stay ahead of the game.
- How Proactive Companies Adapt to the Rise of Female Breadwinners
In this popular keynote Dr. Doyle-Morris discusses how organisations must adapt to the rising tide of women who are the main earners for their family as written about in her second book ‘Female Breadwinners.’ She’ll look at the business case for diversity, how the market and talent pool is changing and what these shifts mean for proactive employers. Dr. Doyle-Morris then addresses how organisations can evolve to retain and develop key talent for the future. This includes rewarding ‘quiet leadership’ and moving mentoring towards sponsorship as well as highlighting the internal ‘inclusion heroes.’ She also discuss how these demographic shifts affect the relationships and expectations between individual men and women.
- Raising your Profile to Move Beyond the Boys’ Club
A firm favourite since it accompanied her first book; ‘Beyond the Boys’ Club’, Dr. Doyle-Morris uses this presentation to offer tangible strategies audience members can enact immediately to get noticed by senior stakeholders. She helps women become comfortable with self-promotion in order to get the recognition they deserve, for themselves and their team. Building on her long-standing coaching practice and academic research, Dr. Doyle-Morris focuses on how to get comfortable with being ‘80% perfect’, ‘tooting your own horn’ and delegating in the home and office whilst maintaining your credibility and authenticity.
- Unleash your Feminine Superpowers
Women have a headstart in the ‘superpowers’ that benefits both business and society. Skills like diplomacy, empathy, listening, collaboration, low ego, lateral thinking, reading faces and intuiting situations are all skills not frequently seen enough in the modern workplace yet are all skills high performers consistently demonstrate. Smart organisations capitalise on the differences women can bring to the workplace. Rather than encourage women to become more masculine in order to succeed, encouraging women to be more authentic and be rewarded for it, is the only way for proactive companies to get ahead.
As a keynote presenter or panellist, her broad expertise on diversity issues makes Dr. Doyle-Morris one of the most credible speakers on the challenges… and opportunities…for today’s working woman.
