In his down time, you’re unlikely to find Maurice: Sitting still or silent for long. Lacking in energy or devoid of opinion on any matter.
You are likely to find him: On Tynemouth Longsands Beach with his two dogs at 6am every morning that he’s home, chilling out at Crusoe’s Cafe on the same beach. Reading the Times. In the gym preparing for the Great North Run or the next 200 mile charity bike ride. Running his under 6’s beach football club with his son, Ethan. Reading the latest Nassim Nicholas Taleb publication. Writing books of his own on leadership mindsets. Enjoying a good glass of Merlot with his wife and family.
Speaker - Maurice Duffy
New Thinking for New Times
We believe we need new thinking for new times in people, leadership, business and society.
Why? We believe we are facing a future Blackswan world with more volatility, greater uncertainty, increased complexity and unbelievable ambiguity.
We believe the speed of change will exponentially increase and we cannot solve our current or future problems with the same level of thinking that created them in the first place, that’s the why.
As for what we need to do and how we do it - Join us on June 19 as our Chairman and one of top global executive coaches Maurice Duffy shares his thinking
