Peter Gamwell delivers dynamic and relevant keynote presentations on a variety of topics pertaining to leadership, creativity and learning. Whether your organization is involved with education, business, government or not-for-profit, he can work with you to customize a half-day or full-day workshop tailored to your specific needs and organizational goals.

Audiences are delighted and energized by Peter’s unique style. He does not pretend to have all the answers. Instead, he embraces the uncertainty we all feel regarding the complexities of our times, and helps lead us to make sense of our world in positive, yet realistic, ways. He draws on the depth of his research and the range of his experiences to engage audiences into informed dialogue about possible pathways forward—and he uses storytelling and humor to wisely illustrate his messages.

Drawing on his research and his wealth of practical experience, Peter will challenge you to consider fundamental questions to foster positive growth, vibrancy and creativity in your organizations:

  • What do healthy organizations look like? What have you already done that has started to create this atmosphere
  • What does a creative person look and act like? Why do we consider some people creative and not others?
  • What are the conditions needed to draw out people’s unique creative capacities
  • What practical and implementable strategies can we put in place today, next week and in the coming year to foster healthier organizational environments?

By working together to find the answers to these questions and others like them, your organization will find the passion for lifelong and creative learning.

With so many experts saying that imagination and innovation are crucial to our future, you might think about emulating creative companies like Zappos, Google and IDEO. But do you notice what those organizations all have in common? They established their creative cultures as young start-ups. What happens if, like most of us, your organization has been around for decades, steeped in traditional processes and rigid roles that put a chokehold on creativity and beat it senseless every day?

In this lively and engaging presentation built around questions, ideas and stories, you’ll learn easily implemented and practical ways to catalyze and spark dialogue, learning and productive actions specific to your situation. In our complex, bureaucratic age, find out how you can transform your organization to embrace the new creative age.

  • How do you set the stage to foster imaginative, creative and innovative organizational cultures? What barriers can you expect to encounter?
  • What strategies can you use to move forward successfully? Peter challenges some common assumptions pertaining to leadership and learning, and provides suggestions and practical ideas to foster truly innovative and vibrant organizational cultures.
  • What are the conditions for optimal learning and creativity to flourish? Peter will show you how to think through this crucial question—and suggests ways to move forward when the inevitable pushback occurs to organizational change.
    Learn about organizations that have successfully fostered creative learning cultures and find out we can learn from them.

Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

The only officer in the history of the CIA to rise from entry-level employee to director, Dr. Gates has consistently been a successful leader of change throughout an exceptional career. In this candid, inspiring presentation based on his book A Passion for Leadership, Dr. Gates draws on years of dedicated leadership at the CIA, Texas A&M University and the Department of Defense to offer wisdom and encouragement to leaders on how to successfully implement change and transform their organizations. In a time of change, companies have to change all the time to be competitive. How do you recognize and preserve the tradition and culture that made a company great, and determine what is in the way? Assessing the failures of big institutions, Dr. Gates offers innovative and practical advice, sharing personal anecdotes and experiences as most pertinent to your audience.

Louis Gerstner, Jr. (Exclusively WSB)

Changing a culture is near impossible—and a key reason as to why so many great companies fail. So was the case of corporate stalwart IBM, whose lumbering corporate culture held back innovation and threatened the financial stability of the once-great technology company. By rewarding teamwork, embracing a take charge culture and improving employee morale with the introduction of pay for performance, Lou Gerstner’s transformational leadership unleashed one of the most improbable turnaround story’s in corporate history. In a moderated question and answer format, Gerstner shares his lessons from IBM and shows how today’s business leaders can learn from the challenges and issues he faced at the helm of one of the most recognized companies in the world. Gerstner invites audiences to participate in a discussion about the most pressing business issues their organization currently faces, providing candid insight from his three decades of experience as one of the most successful and effective CEOs in modern times.

In this unique session, Gerver explores why change and uncertainty becomes so challenging for so many; links to risk aversion, a need for safety, security and control, hamper and stifle so many people and organizations. Gerver argues that we must understand why it is that so many of us develop an aversion to change as we grow and how we must change our mind-sets and motivations as a result. He explains why it is so important that we focus on developing the capacity of our people not only to accept change but to be active participants in it, if we are to evolve cultures of sustainable change and development. Cultures where responsibilities and accountabilities are shared, where ideas and momentum can spring from anywhere and where traditional hierarchies morph to facilitate self-leadership and real collaboration.  He will explore the power of creativity, curiosity and confidence to understand how to embrace change in uncertain times and just why we must shift the paradigm to understand that change is not a program or a strategy but is an ever present in the organic nature of the 21st Century.

He will use his unique perspective as an educator, a leader and a high performance mentor to provoke new thinking about change as a core factor in defining our future successes on human and organizational levels.

Jennifer Golbeck (Exclusively WSB)

Social media has transformed the way people use the web and the way they interact with companies. Gone are the days where a customer mails you a letter and waits weeks for responses; they expect nearly instant and in-depth interaction. Similarly, employees are on social media and the way they present themselves and your company can dramatically impact how you are perceived. In this session, Dr. Jennifer Golbeck, a leader in social media and analytics, offers five lessons for how your company can use social media to recruit the best talent and manage your brand.

Jennifer Golbeck (Exclusively WSB)

Security experts often claim that people are the most unreliable part of their systems. Dr. Jennifer Golbeck, an expert in cyber security and human-centered technology design, asserts that the problem is not people behaving insecurely, but security systems that are designed with no concern for their users. She discusses the risks organizations face when humans aren’t the center of their security plans and presents three simple changes that can make systems more secure and easier to use.
