KIERAN FLANAGAN SPEAKER
"Top 25 C-Suite Speakers to watch." MEETINGS & CONVENTIONS USA
“Funny and full of practical ideas to unlock the genius is all of us, Kieran is a mix of Edward De Bono and Melissa McCarthy!”
Whether it’s tools and techniques to solve problems more creatively or giving people new perspectives about themselves and their teams, Kieran helps your audience access their inner genius and develop adaptive expertise. If you want your event goers buzzing with possibilities Kieran is the perfect keynote speaker.
Kieran is a Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of the Impossible Institute™, a strategic think-tank created to Make Positive Change & Make Change Positive™! She believes that, in order to thrive, we must all develop more fluid methods of thinking.
One of the critical challenges you face as an event organiser or someone working in talent development, is the inertia your people have often adopted when it comes to change. This is due in no small part to our reliance on default thinking frames as well as an under-developed capacity to think differently. This requires more than brain games as behavioural researchers now realise that whilst brain training improves our mental “hardware” we also need to update our cognitive “software” also. This is where Kieran delivers extraordinary results for her clients through keynote speeches, training workshops & consulting.
In an impressive career, Kieran has worked with virtually every industry sector and spoken to audiences as diverse as the United Nations in Singapore (as part of a social change think tank working to end human trafficking), to innovation teams for Coca Cola as well as leadership forums and education summits in Australia, the US, Asia and Europe.
She is an inspiring Leadership Speaker who brings energy, laughter, and innovative thinking to her presentations & leaves her audiences with the confidence to be more creative, more adaptable and unable to “un-think” what they have just learned.
Kieran is a passionate advocate for teaching individuals how to change the way they think and helping organisations change the results they produce for the positive.
