René acquires case studies and stories from the frontline first hand. He speaks with the authority and confidence of an expert practitioner who has seen and experienced it all before. René draws much from his own unique experiences as managing director at IPC Magazines and serving on a variety of boards including Pepsi, IPC Media and the Inland Revenue. He is never about theory – it is all practical and pragmatic leadership insights and tips. No one ever forgets being at one of his sessions.
René is an accomplished visiting professor at Cass Business School. His critically acclaimed latest book, Spike – What are you great at? enables all of us to unleash our inherent strengths and realise our true potential. As René says, “If you accept your limitations, you go beyond them”.
