MORE 2018: Louder than words – taking action today.

What a great two days. Huge thanks to all the speakers who made this event rock! We loved having you part of the MORE. 2018 team.
We are at a pivotal moment in history – movements like #metoo are exploding paradigms and inspiring the confrontation of long-held assumptions about women in the personal and professional domain.
At the same time our workplaces are experiencing fundamental generational shifts. Automated technology, unknown work futures, climate change, consumer led ‘need it now’ generation and people working past 65 are all significant challenges to be faced.

In this atmosphere, and beyond the headlines, we need to take action to deliver more women leaders at every level. We must stop ‘fixing’ women and ‘blaming’ men – activating change that removes gender from the dialogue and celebrates real partnership, where women and men use their superpowers collectively to implement on-the-ground change throughout the corporate and government sectors.

The Evolving Female
How do we achieve an essential balance between power and control?

Navigating the New Landscape for Men
How can men and women work better together in the work place, retaining their identities while shedding unproductive behaviours?

The Corporate Spouse
How do we manage the often unbalanced power dynamic between work and home?

Appropriate Work Place Communication
How do we get better at emotionally neutral communication and transcend sub-optimal cultures and behaviours?

Are you High Performance Capable?
How to work, live, age and perform WELL – every day.

Understanding Trans-generational Culture
Organisations span generations of employees with very different needs and behaviours. Understand how we can tackle some of the key challenges relating to having employees feeling understood. Understand how we can create leaders who use their super powers collectively to bring better stronger trans-generational cultures.

The Big Debate. More Voices, More perspectives, More action
Facilitated by Glenda Parata, Director of Shared Services, NZ Defence Force. This one hour action-packed debate examines trans-generational culture and the massive shifts in workforce dynamics that are happening right now! Topics #metoo, #pressforprogress, ageism, stop fixing women, stop blaming men. 

The Launch of Rebecca’s Second Book, Wonder Women: What the hell happened? Making sense of our place in the world


Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend the #moresummit2018 actions speak louder than words event with Alexis Brackebush and listen to a range of amazing speakers discuss many topics in our workplace and in our homes that rarely get spoken about or brought to light.

I particularly enjoyed listening to Jennifer Rutherford on “Appropriate Workplace Communication” and Alexia Hilbertidou on “The Evolving Female”. Both presenters were insightful and inspiring.

Thanks, Rebecca Morris for putting on this incredible event. Looking forward to hearing the chosen topic for 2019!

What an amazing day – I heard nothing but excellent positive feedback.

Shelley Eden, Speaker

Wow! Just heard Sophie Guerin from Dell EMC speak on Trans-generational culture in a Digital World. Sophie was not only an incredible speaker but so passionate about the topic and the insights were fantastic…

Challenging us to think about how the workforce of today will compare to the workforce of the future with the impact of disruptive innovation.

We need to embrace agile learning and hone our skills in emotional competency, as these will be vital skills into the future with changes in the business landscape and advances in technology.

The future is about it people skills and having the right automation to support this.

Fantastic day out at MORE Leadership Summit 2018 – Paradigm Shift – great work Rebecca Morris.

Mandy B, CAANZ
