    We are at an inflection point of incredible opportunity, and leaders need a workforce that is engaged and motivated, making progress.

    But what has worked in the past will not work now. With 72% of employees reporting feeling disengaged, and people reflecting on how work should fit them, a new approach is needed to shape a working environment that is creative, collaborative, and productive.

    Leaders that are unable to evolve and adapt, will likely lose their top talent and struggle to compete against organizations who have the toolkit to effectively respond to the 5 External Shifts…

    The WorkInsights program provides a framework for the shifts needed to lead effectively and provide the working environment most effective to attract and retain talent and gain their best contribution.

    Harvard Business School shows 60% of the results of an organization are attributed to the one senior leader – a significant responsibility if you are that leader - the question is, are you ready?

    Meet the Presenter

    Michael DeVenney, CFA, ICD.d, Founder of WorkInsights

    Michael has more than 16,000 hours of experience working with successful boards and leaders across North America.

    His unique and unmatched qualifications as a business owner, chartered financial analyst, and the diplomas he holds from Harvard Business School, the London School of Economics, Oxford University’s Saïd School of Business, and Rotman Business School at the University of Toronto complement his practical experience. Michael is an expert in disruptive and alternative strategy, behavioral decision-making, and organizational governance. His intellectual curiosity, ability to ask the right questions, and his understanding of organizational psychology position him to offer both strategic support and clarity when it comes to making decisions.
