How To Build An Anti-Racist Brand 

In this talk, Collette speaks to brand and comms teams and agency teams on the importance of building anti-racism into brands – sharing practical case studies and tips, but also challenging attendees to move beyond tokenism and performative action.  Check out this similar talk for Charity Comms.

Entrepreneurial Thinking and Mindset

The focus of this talk is around how to embed the innovative, learning and growth mindset of an entrepreneur, no matter who you work for or what you do.  Collette will talk about the importance of purpose and values in taking ownership for your career journey and ambition but also how to build resilience when the going gets tough.  This talk was originally based on an article that Collette wrote for Campaign magazine (you can read it here). 

How To Be a Changemaker 

Driving change isn’t easy. But we often relinquish the power we do have to others or take a passive stance when we have the ability to do brilliant things and make an impact.  In this talk, Collette shares practical strategies for driving change – and what it takes to be a changemaker. After hearing Collette speak, you’ll be fired up and ready to be the change you want to see!

How To Build Your Leadership Brand 

There is magic in bringing together the power of personal brand with the brilliance of leadership techniques.  Often leadership techniques and literature, focus on one type of personality or one model of leader – in this talk, Collette explains how you can do it differently, building a leadership style and brand that plays to your unique strengths. You can read a bit more about this on our blog here.
