"Leadership in a Disrupting World"

Michelle introduced Dave Clare , the Manager of The Apprenticeship and Traineeship Company who gave us a very informative and excellent presentation on “Leadership in a Disrupting World”.

Unfortunately Dave had to deliver in a 15 minute time frame which made the presentation rushed.

His Powerpoint is available on request from Woody XL, Viki , Tony Emmott or Doc.


A few points from the presentation:


  • You can try and predict the future or you can create your own future.

  • Paradox of Success – What got you here, won’t get you there.

  • Fosbury Flop example: Do it DIFFERENTLY

  • Lost opportunities – Kodak

  • New opportunities by doing it differently – UBER, AIRBnB, ALIBABA,EBAY.

  • Every business model has a shelf life. Has yours expired and you don’t know it?

  • Difference between a BUSINESS MODEL and a MODEL BUSINESS.

  • If you are No 1, to stay there, BE AND ACT LIKE No 2.

  • Ask EPIC questions, INNOVATE, introduce something new.

  • LEADERSHIP: Give your people-

                             Something to believe in – PURPOSE

                              Someone to believe in them – EMPOWER WITH VALUES

                              Someone to believe in – LEADER WITH AN INSPIRING VISION

  • People want their lives to be MEANINGFUL, give them work that is MEANING FULL.

  • Lead / Live / Love VALUES


  • Tim Duggan offered the customary thanks.
