Jenoir Client Spotlight: Keynote at CFFB - Centre for Family Business
The ability to engage and influence powerful people is especially important in the context of a family business. Founders and CEOs of family businesses are often strong willed and even intimidating people. Understanding what drives them and how to work with them effectively can make a huge contribution to the success and growth of a family business and help its further development from a leadership and strategy perspective.
That’s why I was thrilled to deliver the keynote on “influencing powerful people” keynote at the sold out CFFB Signature Event earlier this year.
Thanks to CFFB Chair, Rick Baker, for providing the following testimonial:
“When Dirk presented his unique messages at our Signature event, CFFB was able to attract the largest audience in its 22 year history. What a successful event. Dirk’s compelling stories and lessons learned about powerful people engaged us from start to finish and his sense of humour enhanced our learning experience. We now have strategies we can rely upon when we face powerful people in challenging situations. Dirk's contribution was everything we hoped for!”
