As organisations race to re-engage their people and retain their best talent, no one seems to be talking about the things that really matter.

With his trademark energy, deep research and razor-sharp wit, Mykel shows audiences how to reclaim their vision, redefine their value, and reinvent the way we work.

Perfect for:

Leaders and teams who have lost their spark and need to fall back in love with their customers, colleagues and the magical possibilities that exist in their day to day work.

Audiences will leave:

Inspired and motivated to dream bigger, act bolder and lead the change they want to see in their team, company or industry.

KeyNotes 3

How to win at work and life by breaking the rules.

Black Sheep Rising

When did work get so... boring?  Compliance, regulation, assessment. Pre-approved questions, watered down objectives, micro- managed projects. Is it any wonder we’re in the midst of a global engagement crisis. We’re mostly on auto-pilot, rewarded for mediocrity, and terrified to colour outside the lines. 

Organisations today need more risk-takers, rule-breakers and mischief makers. They need unconventional leaders who are unafraid of ruffling a few feathers in order to build something better. And employees today need a sense of agency. They need opportunities to explore and express their unique talents, perspective and experience without fear of retribution or redundancy.  

In this keynote, Mykel shows audiences how to find and follow the loveable rogue that lives in all of us. By giving them tools to bend and break rules, attendees will find the clarity, creativity and courage to push their company (and themselves) to new levels of performance.

Perfect for:

The misfits and mavericks, rebels and renegades, outliers and originals who have been hiding in your organisation, withholding their unconventional gifts and talents.

Audiences will leave:

Reconnected to their wild, weird and wonderful selves, empowered to bring ALL of their originality to work, and ready to ruffle a few feathers, rock a few boats and shake a few trees.

Amie Larter - CEO, Octomedia

I can confidently say after the many hundreds of speakers I have managed in my years as a conference producer that Mykel is a solid golden egg who informs, entertains and inspires audiences every single time!

Melinda Everett - Event Executive, CPA Australia

Mykel’s energy, charisma, musicianship, and humility created something truly magical. Souls were lifted and lives changed. (I won’t even get into how uplifting and memorable the after-party was!) If you are considering taking an event to the next level and creating something truly memorable, just book Myke and let him do his thing. You won’t regret it.

Craig Swann - Event Director, South_Start

As a speaker, facilitator, bandleader and host, with large or small crowds, both on or offline, he breaks every rule in the book, which is exactly what I expect of him and exactly what people need. I usually give him a broadly ambiguous brief, i.e. plenty of room to move, and he delivers every single time.
