Intentional Adaptability Quotient® Topics

Looking for a speaker, workshop or challenge to support your people in embracing the challenges of the unprecedented time we find ourselves in?

The BKindred team brings a thought-provoking, no-BS approach to audiences from dozens to thousands. Our team is deeply passionate about igniting a new wave of leaders with the skills to make intentional decisions about how they adapt in a complex environment. 

We offer a diverse range of topics (outlined below) that can be delivered virtually or in person.



In this presentation, BKindred unleashes insights into the trends that are redefining the role of the human being in the workplace. Patterns that are leading to the critical need for a new kind of intelligence that supports our ability to thrive in change. This includes decoding the busy epidemic and looking at how we shift the idea of surviving into thriving.

Audiences will walk away with insights into trends that are redefining the next economy, placing a laser focus on why connecting with what it means to be human is critical to our ability to thrive today and into the future.

This topic is offered as a 45-minute keynote presentation or a half-day workshop.



We are living in 'The Adaptive Age'. A time where igniting change trumps managing change, and choosing to adapt is imperative if we are looking to future proof our career or our organisation.

In this presentation, BKindred decodes the Intentional Adaptability Quotient (IAQ®) and dives deep into the role of focus, courage and curiosity in igniting our ability to evolve consciously.

Audiences will walk away with insights into their own IAQ®, drawing from research in neuroscience, psychology, and BKindred’s ongoing experimentation. The content presented will also enable the audience to adopt a pioneering mindset, empowering them with the skills to thrive in the next economy.

This topic is offered as a 45-minute keynote presentation or a half-day workshop.



What if fear was one of the greatest levers you had to create the life and work you always wanted? Courageous adaptation is the elixir that activates the most significant step towards sustained high performance, wellbeing, and the ability to thrive.

In this presentation, BKindred will take the audience through a step-by-step process designed to empower them with the tools to ignite courageous adaptation. 

Audiences will walk away from this presentation with a new perspective on the role fear plays in our lives. Courageous adaptation is a lens where we can see the possibilities for a world where happiness, creativity and innovation can come from working with fear rather than against it.

This topic is offered as a 45-minute keynote presentation or a half-day workshop.



We are experiencing happiness poverty, and it’s impacting our ability to thrive in a world of exponential change. It will come as no surprise that organisations are investing millions, if not billions of dollars in finding ways to increase employee engagement, enhance employee wellbeing, and drive greater productivity, in order to improve performance.

Yet research shows that: more than 50% of workers are still unhappy, 66% of the workforce is still disengaged, with 13% of those actively disengaged at a cost of up to $550 billion a year for American companies alone.

In this presentation, the BKindred team will explore where happiness is found and present an alternative pathway for those seeking to hack their own happiness. They will debunk the success = happiness equation and consider the opportunity that lies in flipping our mindset towards a new equation, happiness = success, to enable people to get back into the driver's seat of their own lives.

 Audiences will walk away from this presentation with ‘happiness hacks’ designed to amplify the belief systems and behaviours that enable greater happiness in the every day. They will also have a refreshed perspective on what ignites and sustains the kind of happiness that shines from the inside out.

This topic is offered as a 45-minute keynote presentation or a half-day workshop.

I had the honor and the pleasure to host Penny as a Keynote speaker at our annual meeting in Amsterdam. She delivered a great experience and an extremely inspirational speech in front of thousands of people. 

Nigel Davis, Organisational & Sustainable Development Lead, Medibank

We were looking to drive some “outside the box” conversations and BKindred certainly delivered!  The Fear is your Future keynote helped to move the conversation into the realms of creating a future, one success (and mistake) at a time. Our employees left feeling motivated and asking themselves the question “What can I do to prepare myself for the future, today?
