Topics for Milo Wilkinson
- Defining moments
The content for this session will explore why certain brief experiences can jolt us and elevate us and how we can learn to create such extraordinary moments in our life and work. This session will help participants discover the psychology of what defines a memorable 'experience' and why we can remember a peak experience up to 20 years later. In a world full of challenges, we tend to feel most comfortable when things are certain but we can learn to feel most alive when they are not. We will work on the concept of 'breaking the script’ and influencing our own lives and the lives of those around us every single time.
- Brain 101: Mental agility = resilience
Delve into the fascinating world of neuroscience and unravel the profound mysteries of your own mind in my keynote, 'Brain 101: Mental Agility = Resilience.'
Despite all of us having a brain, only a handful truly comprehend its capabilities, necessities, and the secret to unlocking its peak performance. This presentation is set to change that.
Engage in an exciting journey to discover your primal brain - the 'engine room' of your consciousness that silently influences over 90% of your decision making.
Far from a traditional keynote, this session places you at the heart of the discovery process through an extraordinary real-world 'experiment.' You will be led through a series of experiences and insights that will make you question the power of your own mind
and your own perception of reality.
During this highly interactive session, we will shed light on the operations of the subconscious mind, revealing how its primal instincts and patterns shape our daily lives, decisions, and overall resilience. We will also explore practical strategies to hone your mental agility, a key factor in fostering resilience and achieving personal and professional success.
This keynote will provide you with a unique blend of science, discovery, and practical applications, leading you to a deeper understanding of yourself and your limitless potential.
- Hardwired for change: The human capacity to adapt and transform
Challenge the norms, question the status quo, and step into the paradox of human adaptability!
This provocative exploration confronts the long-held belief that humans resist change, instead proposing an alternative reality - what if we are, in fact, naturally inclined to adapt and evolve?
Does merely considering this question unsettle your established beliefs or challenge your existing knowledge? What if the real fear
isn't change itself but the potential loss that the change might represent?
In this enlightening keynote, we dive deep into the physiology, neurology, and psychology of change. We dissect our physical capability to regenerate and adapt, explore the neurological underpinnings of our response to change, and delve into the psychological aspects of our perceived resistance to it. Through this comprehensive approach, I aim to unravel the true essence of our relationship with change.
Join me as I debunk myths, shatter misconceptions, and discover our innate ability to embrace change.
This keynote is not merely a presentation; it's a journey to rediscovering our inherent adaptability and resilience. So, are you ready to embrace the truth of your evolutionary journey?
- Generational leadership: Embracing age diversity in the modern workforce
Generational identity, though often overlooked, plays a significant role in shaping our experiences, perspectives, and interactions in the workplace. Like an invisible hand, the era in which we were born influences our world views, social trends understanding, economic realities, behavioural norms, and interpretations of leadership.
Today, five distinct generations coexist in the workforce. A rapidly evolving landscape, where approximately 40% of us report to younger managers, and the power dynamics are increasingly shifting towards youth, largely driven by Digital Intelligence (DQ). From fledgeling startups to global giants, young digital leaders are reshaping the contours of leadership, yet we often expect them to instinctively grasp the relational wisdom that their older counterparts have spent years mastering.
This keynote delves into the complex interplay between generational diversity and leadership. We'll examine evidence demonstrating that gender, ethnic, and age diversity contribute significantly to an organisation's success. However, we'll also confront the challenging realities of age diversity, exploring strategies to navigate and leverage these differences effectively.
By understanding and appreciating the unique strengths, perspectives, and challenges each generation brings to the table, we can foster more inclusive, productive, and dynamic workplaces.
Get ready to debunk age-related stereotypes, challenge your assumptions, and discover the transformative potential of generational

- Understanding self / understanding others
Using a criminal and behavioural profiling tool, we look into the four quadrants of the brain and their functions. This is a powerful tool to understand how we communicate, what drives the way we think and how directly and personally we interact with others when we are happy and how drastically this may change when we are stressed.
The tools we use focuses on showing people how to use their whole brain—not just the parts with which they feel most comfortable. It is scientifically designed to help people learn to think better and is widely used as a draft recruitment tool across global elite sporting teams.
By identifying your preferred approach to emotional, analytical, structural and strategic thinking, the session is a catalyst for inspiring individual, team and organisational development, promoting more effective thinking and driving innovation.
Over two-million people have undergone this form of analysis worldwide, and it's used by nine out of ten Fortune 100 companies.

it such a critical component in our relationships?

What does it take to truly understand another individual's thoughts, emotions, or personality traits?
This captivating session reveals a fascinating insight: our understanding of others often begins with self-understanding. We use our own thoughts and emotions as a springboard, projecting them onto others to make sense of their behaviour. But what happens when people's perspectives differ significantly from our own?
While this mental projection is a powerful tool for comprehension, it's not without its pitfalls. We'll unravel these potential obstacles, diving into cognitive phenomena such as the false consensus effect, the curse of knowledge, and the challenges of
