Calderdale Council - Keynote Speaker


Central Government policy had resulted in the Council’s funding being slashed, but expectations on quality of service and value remained extremely high.  The client wanted to proactively address:-

  • Silo working habits which had resulted in wasted effort, lack of focus on key priorities and not best use of people resources.
  • The impact significant organisational change created uncertainty and adversely impacted employee engagement and motivation.
  • The quality of service and cost effectiveness of its delivery needed to be improved to deliver best value for tax payers and residents of Calderdale.


An action-packed 60 minute keynote presentation in Leeds to an audience of more than 120 employees exploring:-

  • How to quickly and easily develop more collaborative working habits to reduce errors, wasted effort and delays in service delivery.
  • How to more effectively manage the emotionally turbulent side of organisational change and maintain a clear mental focus.
  • How to develop greater emotional resilience to maintain a healthy ‘Emotional Climate’ within teams to better manage organisational change.

Client Feedback

"Scott's presentation was highly interactive, entertaining, thought provoking and relevant to the needs of our audience.  The session was a refreshing change to the common 'sit and listen' approach used by many keynote presenters.

The feedback I received from event participants was extremely positive and I am happy to recommend Scott Watson and Summit to you if you don't want a 'Speaker' and instead wish to appoint a presenter who is credible, engaging and who can share valuable lessons that you can immediately apply in your workplace".
