Keynote speaker Jim Lawless is a real game changer and one of the most sought after keynote speakers in Europe. To date he has shared his tools for transformational change with over half a million inspired people at events on five continents and many more through his bestselling book “Taming Tigers” (Random House 2012). He is able to inspire and encourage his audiences in an extraordinary manner.
Jim Lawless has made himself the advocate of “Mission Impossible”. He accomplished the ubelievable by becoming the UK’s deepest freediver, the first Briton to pass 100m on one breath and, as an answer to a client challenge and a £1 bet, Jim transformed from non-riding unfit consultant to Jockey in 12 months.
Accomplishing “Mission Impossible” depends upon the ability to adapt to and create disruptive changes, to seize opportunities at pace, to play to win rather than play “not to lose”, to engage and empower others and inspire action. The greatest asset in creating and adapting to change is also our greatest liability: The Human Mind. A tool formed over many millennia to favour the familiar over pioneering behaviours, creative tension and new uncertain outcomes.
When the leaders and people across an organisation begin to understand, own and enjoy the mindset that creates purposeful change, “Mission Impossible” becomes a live possibility. That’s the reason Jim Lawless created the “Taming Tigers” framework. Regularly re-booked by many of the world’s leading companies, Jim has devoted the majority of his working life to finding out what makes lasting transformation possible for individuals, teams and organisations – and to making change happen.
Jim’s presentations are renowned for giving the audience:
The Desire to Act to make the change happen, personally
The Courage and Confidence to take personal risks in changing objectives, behaviours and communication and
Practical Tools: what to do and how to recognise and overcome the personal barriers – the Tiger
Jim’s understanding of change in the individual, team and organisation is hard won. Jim has advised on change and coached high performing teams at board level for 15 years with a client list including global giants such as Apple, BT, AXA, ATOS and Barclaycard and private equity mega-success stories such as Skrill Group.
