Keynote Address to the Yolla Co-operative on the Future for Agricultural Cooperatives for their 40 year Celebrations

The interest that your keynote address created in our co-op was remarkable. All of our members, old and young, innovative and conventional, were all engaged and interested in your talk. I am still hearing really good things from your address weeks later.

Mindshop’s annual Australasian / New Zealand advisor conference

“Paul Higgins recent presentation at Mindshop’s annual Australasian / New Zealand advisor conference entitled: ‘Bringing the future into your advisory practice’ was excellent on many fronts. Paul’s ability to simplify the complexity out of the topics he covered and his practical insights on future trends resonated very well with our attendees. Paul also managed to tailor the messages he delivered to our target audience and to the overall conference theme which ensured a strong start to our conference. Thank you again for a great presentation.”

 Paul Higgins was a keynote speaker for the recent Combined Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Institute of Medical Radiation Technologists and the Australian Institute of Radiography. Paul presented on the future of healthcare referencing big data, artificial intelligence and robotics with relevance to the medical imaging and therapeutic disciplines of our profession. This is a big departure from the usual industry experts and Paul was extremely well received by our delegates with his entertaining and thought provoking keynote address. Paul was a pleasure to deal with and has continued to engage with our delegates post conference using our conference twitter hashtag, absolutely outstanding! 

Life Education Trust National Conference

… “Paul brought a higher level of thought to participants, lifting thinking from the usual annual cycle to challenge us on how we were responding to opportunities that already existed. It brought context to what we see as the important things now. You could see people sit up as they thought about what we do and what we can do. He didn’t provide the answers, but empowered people to begin thinking of the questions our organisation needs to be asking ourselves “

Paul left us with much to think about - a great way to challenge our thinking and refashion paradigms when considering our strategic direction"
