Towards a creative culture
Whilst the industrial era factory model has delivered economic benefit to many, it has had the unfortunate side-effect of dehumanising the workers, reducing them to ‘process cogs’.. Compliance was (is) paramount. Compliance is much easier when the process cogs all behave in a predictable and obedient manner.
Disruption is thankfully putting the factory model to sleep. Businesses need to be repopulated with humans behaving as humans. In a world that is increasingly unknowable, having a diverse workforce is critical.
Sample subthemes to explore include:
- The challenges of transitioning from the factory model.
- Why diversity is less about gender, age, disability and so on and more about cognition.
- How to win the increasingly acute war for talent.
- The new definition of what constitutes employee / talent value.

What they are saying…
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
