A Great Opportunity

Keynote speakers with this ability can seem very pricey.

Well, you’re in luck. Answer this question - which may seem like a weird one at this time.

Do you remember that band you listened to before they became well-known?

Brendan does! They were called Nirvana!

This is where the question links to relevance! You have the chance to book an ‘emerging speaker’ before he becomes well-known (and pricey)! 

Brendan has delivered leadership development focused talks at a variety of community service organisations and business events since 2012. In 2019, he decided to get serious about his keynote speaking and take it to a higher level.

He joined Toastmasters and started his serious ‘speaking improvement journey’.

Brendan will connect, engage and inspire audiences with relatable life stories and practical models to develop leaders now and for the future.


Better PEOPLE. Better Leaders. Better Teams. Better Culture. Better Results.

Creating Confident Leaders in the workplace requires a deliberate and dedicated focus on PEOPLE. That's why, at Leader By Design, our leadership development framework is P.E.O.P.L.E.  After 25+ years in leadership roles across business and sport, our world first P.E.O.P.L.E. system has been built from the ground up based on 'real-life' experience and a perpetual process of self-improvement.

Building better PEOPLE, requires strong foundations. For Leaders to stand strong, they must PLANT both feet on the ground. This means understanding your own strengths and struggles, your motivations, your listening and communication styles, what drives your decisions, and how all these impact you and those around you.

Once you develop the foundation, i.e. PLANT your feet, you can then use what you have learnt to EDUCATE yourself and become a life-long student of leadership. Leveraging the foundations, and linking these to your relationships, experiences and exploring leadership content that aligns with your development needs, underpins the EDUCATE cog in The PEOPLE system and allows you to lead, authentically.

Building better PEOPLE, involves understanding the 'nitty gritty' of how we must OPERATE to lead. Creating standards and seeking clarity and alignment around these standards is critical. This is across our behaviours, performance goals, roles & responsibilities and people processes, as well as how we interact with our team and build a feedback culture. Without the knowledge to OPERATE, you can't lead, effectively.

What we PRACTICE is central to evolving from being a good leader, to becoming a great leader. There are 8 key PRACTICES leaders must become highly competent in. Without these, a leader can never function at their highest leadership potential. It's our consistent daily habits focused around the 8 key PRACTICES that will move you into the leadership stratosphere. Underpinning PRACTICE, is the mindset of progress over perfection.

The disciplines and behaviours to lead are simple. The greatest challenge leaders have is learning to LEAD, consistently. We create a standard for your leadership expectations, and build accountability frameworks to support it. Accountability drives results, and that is how you are ultimately measured as a leader. Through continuous application, you will LEAD with influence.

Lifting those around you to reach their greatest potential, is the pinnacle of leadership. In this cog of The PEOPLE system, we teach Leaders how to 'ELEVATE' others. Doing this ensures continued growth of the leadership capability within your organisation, which should always be a critical element of your leadership development strategy.
