Great insights from both Corporate and SME perspectives on transformational change - real reflection taken on the event

Excellent, practical, hard-headed advice on how to do the 'difficult stuff' of transforming an under-performing business, from two quite different speakers. I measure the value from an Exchange dinner by the number of pages of notes that I take: this was a 'four-pager', which is exceptional!

Learned some good information about the importance of culture, persistence and taking that leap of faith in business

Key tips: Trust Leadership Commitment Allwrapped around clear communication

Gary was relaxed, probing and inclusive

Cynthia had prepared a very useful presentation which effectively delivered the key messages that she had distilled from her impressive experience of driving rapid growth and change across a wide variety of organisations. She was easy to understand and responded thoughtfully to questions. I hadn't encountered Cynthia before at the Exchange, so it was an excellent introduction to a skilled, experienced business manager

Cynthia gave some great and commanding stories with some useful hints and tips

Great mix from Brian of practical and theory with tangible evidence to back it up. Love the way he displayed his knowledge but proposed rational rather than preach the answer. Can see how Brian has achieved in corporate turnarounds - great to hear the experiences.

I've known Brian for some years but had rather lost touch with him, so it was doubly impressive to learn what he has been doing these past few years. He delivered a very succinct summary of the primary lessons he has learned, in a way that made it easy to translate his points into one's own circumstances. And his concise answers to questions added real value to my take-aways

Brian was very informative
