Inspiring keynote from Olivier Mythodrama

Tranformational Leadership ­– Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest

Phyllida Hancock 

Festival of Global Mobility Phyllida Hancock Olivier Mythodrama

Shakespeare's genius provides timeless insights into the human nature of transformational leadership, while the narrative drive of his great play, The Tempest, reveals the vital ingredients of a successful change initiative. What kind of “storm” do you need to create? How can you tell a compelling story to truly engage others? Can you manage different reactions and reframe the challenge accordingly? How might you need to change in order that the bigger change is successful?

This memorable and meaningful keynote session with a lively mix of input, discussion and experiental exercises will engage delegates and provide insights to build on for the rest of the conference and to take back to the work place.


We have gathered a diverse panel of cutting-edge speakers to examine the many aspects of growing an agile business and to help you understand the global mobility implications against a backdrop of opportunity even in uncertain times. They will confirm some of your thoughts and positively challenge others, helping your team to be more resilient and prepare for the future.

We invite you to bring colleagues from other disciplines in your organization or external colleagues to collaborate, hone your business strategy and prepare for the future.

Explore key topics for contemporary businesses (including transformation and change, diversity, leadership styles, talent, global trade, agility and collaboration) across sectors – from technology and life sciences to finance, automotive, oil, gas and energy, services, and the creative sector. Make connections with companies offering new research and findings, inspiring speakers and accessible experts, explore new ideas on how to reassure, develop and support talent in a changing workplace and examine the inward investment and FDI agenda.
