Leadership is about framing the future. That is his speciality. Ron will not only inspire you, but he will also provide you with the tools on how to prepare for the inevitable changes coming your way. He believes most are opportunities.
Through his books (about books) on topics such as future trends, social media, innovation, resilience and sense-making, his speaking engagements, his guest lectures, his facilitation, his workshops, his advisory and coaching roles, he has developed a clear set of winning models for his clients.
“I have known Ron for a number of years and when I was looking for somebody to spend 2 days with our MBA students to discuss 21st-century leadership I knew Ron was the right man for the job. As expected he prepped the session well and pitched it perfectly. The students were truly inspired and challenged by Ron’s approach to how leaders play a role in ensuring the world is fit for future generations. Ron is a gifted speaker and really pushed the students out of their comfort zone with his way of thinking. All of the MBA students on this cohort at Teesside University Business School are already leaders in their organisations and many of them stated that they immediately began to implement changes at work as a result of the time they spent with Ron. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask Ron to repeat the workshop for future cohorts”
“Ron is a dynamic, talented speaker with a real flair for succinctly pulling together the words, ideas and images needed for a particular event. He is reliable and conscientious with a wealth of sound business and related knowledge that can be applied in many contexts. But best of all Ron is easy to work with and is good fun!”
“I would describe Ron as a futurologist, societal change maven and an innovation grenade, often at the same time. His talks are highly informative, educational, thought-provoking and adaptable for different audiences“
“I have witnessed Ron Immink ‘holding’ audiences attention, completely enraptured and engaged by the journey Ron was taking them on“
“Ron brings a wealth of ‘insider’ knowledge to his talks and speaking events to challenge and stretch our own thinking to imagine and visualise the world of business from new, interesting and compelling angles. Its impossible not be totally absorbed and engaged by his informative, direct and witty style“
“Ron is an excellent public speaker. He really engaged our audience and did a really good session on business strategy and looking at making our organisation more future based in our thinking”
