Keynote | Presenter
Brad Shorkend is a behavioural specialist, obsessed with helping businesses, leaders, and everyone who wakes up in the morning to go to work to be better at the complicated job of being human.
Since 2005 he has worked with thousands of people around the world on how to ‘better human’ at work, and in turn how to build and lead organisations that are awesome places for people to work at and deliver massive success in a world that has gone digital crazy.
He designs his talks and interactive facilitation sessions to be more than just a ‘what’ event, but also to give his audiences the ‘how’!
Leadership, Organisational Culture, Innovation, Strategy, Employee Experience… are all FOR humans, BY humans!
As the CEO of Still Human his global client list reads like a who’s who of business, including the likes of :
Deloitte, Nando’s, Discovery, FNB, Ster Kinekor, Virgin Active, Sasol, SAB, Nedbank, Naspers, Sanofi, Bidvest, Cadbury, Liberty Life, Investec, BCX, Santam, De Beers, Standard Bank, Distell, Old Mutual, Derivco, Transnet, VW, Singita, ABSA, Momentum, Blue Label, and many more…
He is a relentless entrepreneur having founded and successfully (mostly) led over 20 businesses across numerous industry sectors… architecture, telecommunications, fashion, start-up acceleration, music retail, beauty, technology, consulting, fmcg, to name just a few…
He is the published author of ‘We Are Still Human (and work shouldn’t suck!), and is faculty at GIBS and Duke CE.
He is thus able to deeply connect with the unique context of each of his client’s businesses, and weave his humaning message in for maximum sustainability and long term impact.
“Brad definitely delivered and made a life changing impression on my team as well as myself. Highly recommended for teams that are needing alignment and growth – great strategies for building unity and relationships and making sure that everyone moves in the same direction. I was pleasantly surprised by how well this was received by all delegates.” – Kevin Akaloo, Vice President Global Health Safety & Environment, Mondelēz International
“Brad completely immerses himself in the client to ensure he fully understands the particular client nuances. This enables him to produce work that is uniquely tailored to the client situation. Brad is hugely engaging and really impactful on stage and one of his biggest USPs is the fact he can take any business trend and insight and distill it into an actionable approach for the company – there is meaning and action from each outcome. I highly recommend bringing Brad into your business if you want to stay relevant and competitive!” – Julia Scheffer, Global Director of Business Development, Alto Partners
