Talks

These talks and how to session pull from the vast well of ancient texts, wisdom and practices from Pierre du Plessis. When something has been circulating around for hundreds or even thousands of years it has built-in authority. Books have outlasted empires and is stronger, and more resilient than the strongest fortress.

I mix these with modern innovation, using them as a lever to solve modern challenges like constant, exponential change, human development and behavior, and even innovation.

What do the ancients have to say to the 21st century?

Quite a bit.

Keynote Topics

FACING THE SINGLE LARGEST CHALLENGE OF THE 21ST CENTURY, LONELINESS.
“People who are lonely at work are likelier to be emotionally and intellectually less engaged. These same people are also more likely to call in sick, they are not as motivated as other employees, and they do not perform as well either.” – Pierre du Plessis (2022)

HOW UNCERTAINTY FUELS CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION.

Treasure is never found out in the open, treasure is found in the dark. Innovation, creativity, adventure, and life is found in the sacred mess of mystery, chaos, and uncertainty. The soul needs its secrets, and it is in these where true creativity originates. 

 

This message deconstructs our addiction to facts and draws all the way from Japanese aesthetics to Oscar Wilde to speak on the necessity of uncertainty, the gift of chaos, and the source of true innovation.

 

This keynote and Masterclass gives leaders a new lens for thinking about where innovation originates. They will walk away with practical randomization practices they can build into their lives and their businesses.

DEVELOP PRODUCTIVE RHYTHMS IN LIFE AND WORK

This keynote from the book is a call to train naked, to have skin in the game and start training to become a better human that builds amazing things.

 

It speaks of identity, purpose, and ethics, and along with a selection of life-changing practices, it inspires you and your team to take charge, get skin the game and train.

Don’t let the next battle catch you unfit; start training now.
