International Keynote speaker Erik Vermeulen unveils his newest presentation, 2nd Acts: Building from the recession.

The recession has been more than just an economic downturn – it has changed the world of work, forever. It is now more necessary than ever to have some means of anticipating – and responding to – what an uncertain future holds.

Second Acts uses relevant and interesting facts, case studies and multi-media clips, the content is a guaranteed paradigm shaker and conversation starter as you and your team develop your strategies to move forward with purpose! The content challenges commonly held assumptions about business and how the world works. It encourages insight and critical thinking, discussion and “edge-work” as the audience is taken to the edge of their comfort zone.
