It’s Time for a NEW Leadership Playbook

Let’s face it. The way we used to lead no longer works in today’s world. Drastic changes and uncertainty across the globe have shifted the foundations of leadership that we thought were stable. A 24/7, connected world has leaders experiencing higher levels of pressure and stress. Add to that the most diverse workforce in the history of the modern world, and it can easily start to feel chaotic, disconnected, and overwhelming … which means productivity takes a hit, and that can directly reduce revenues and profits.

These changes are here to stay and there are inevitably more changes coming. Leaders need to think to the future and inspire their teams in that direction.

Brenda Bence has the answers to these challenges, and more.

To every in-person or virtual keynote address, Brenda brings her diverse and extensive leadership experience, motivating audiences with real-life international stories, and award-winning, immediately actionable tips, tools, and techniques.

As a Global Certified Speaking Professional and an inductee of the Speaker Hall of Fame, Brenda is sought after across six continents. Her approachable, thought-provoking, and humorous speaking style inspires audiences to succeed as a leader, both today and in the future.
