20 Shots

October 2, 2016
Kevin Roberts speaking

It doesn’t get better than being on stage at the Royal Albert Hall. Thanks to my friends at the UK Institute of Directors, I was the keynote speaker at their annual conference. The set from Pink Floyd’s Dave Gilmour was still rigged as a bevy of business and political leaders ruminated – confidently and optimistically – about post-Brexit Britain. A great day. My brief: 20 Shots in 20 Minutes.

3. It all starts with Purpose

4. Revolution starts with Language

5. Create the Dream

6. Burnish your ABCs

  • Ambition, Belief & Courage

7. Become an Ideas Hothouse


9. Build the Four Pillars

  • Responsibility / Recognition / Learning / Joy

10. Lead with Soft Power

11. Reward Collaborate, Connect & Create

12. Advance True Diversity

13. Fail Fast, Learn Fast, Fix Fast

14. Believe in the Four Agreements (Ruiz)

  • Be Impeccable with your Word
  • Don’t Take Anything Personally
  • Don’t Make Assumptions
  • Always Do Your Best

15. Bleed for the Jersey

16. Live your life in 3D

  • Discipline. Desire. Determination

17. Find your Edge

18. Become a Lovemark

19. Add Mystery, Sensuality & Intimacy

More to come, particularly on my Purpose for New Britain.
