Keynote Topics

Jamie Notter has been delivering keynotes and interactive sessions for association and corporate audiences for more than a decade. He delivers keynote presentations about the power of strong organizational cultures and the key trends that are shaping the future of business, today. Jamie doesn’t pander to the audience; he speaks the truth and cuts through the hype, making it engaging, entertaining, and specifically relevant to the audience in question.

He has engaged audiences around the world with the findings and insights from the research and thought leadership that generated three popular business books, HumanizeWhen Millennials Take Over, and The Non-Obvious Guide to Employee Engagement.

“Jamie Notter is such a dynamic, engaging speaker that we felt very lucky to have him present for our United Way Finance Talent, and Tech Forum. His presentation on culture management in the digital age was great, and our audience members loved it as well. The material truly resonated with our audience of Human Resource and Talent leaders, many of whom are looking for expert advice on building their own organizational culture as we embark on this digital transformation throughout our network. In his very lively, energizing session, Jamie gave them clear tips — and most importantly, actionable suggestions — on how to implement these valuable strategies.

Jamie can customize a presentation to fit the specific needs and goals of your audience. Below are some of his more popular sessions to get your thinking started.

Sharpening Culture to Win Top Talent

The Great Resignation is real, and average cultures won’t have enough gravitational pull to keep people, so now is the time to sharpen your culture and make it one people won’t want to leave. Jamie will share insights from the trenches where organizations are quickly reshaping their approach to customization, employee focus, and collaboration in order to keep their best people (and reduce burnout).

How To Drive Success by Managing Culture Patterns

We all want amazing workplaces, yet traditional management “best practices” rarely get us all the way there. The reason why is not that our management practices are all wrong—it’s that we’re not seeing the hidden patterns inside our culture that are derailing our best efforts. In this session, culture expert Jamie Notter will share some of the dominant culture patterns that have emerged from his years of research and practice. He will demonstrate how existing patterns can make it nearly impossible to achieve the agility, collaboration, or innovation that we need to thrive in today’s environment, and he will offer practical strategies for fixing the broken culture patterns and unlocking new performance.

The Non-Obvious Secret to Employee Engagement

Despite decades of trying to improve employee engagement, we’ve barely moved the needle, and culture expert Jamie Notter can show you why. He’ll offer concrete strategies for addressing the root causes of disengagement and help you create a culture that makes both your organization and your employees (at all levels) successful.

Yes You Can Change Your Culture to Adapt to the Hybrid Workplace

Workplace culture is often written off as hard to understand and nearly impossible to change, Jamie will give you a clear definition of culture, along with a model for changing it that can be leveraged by leaders at all levels. He’ll provide concrete examples of how culture change can drive results, and he’ll explore the key aspects of culture that demand our focus right now, as we move into a hybrid office environment.

Creating a Culture of Innovation

Most organizations understand the value of innovation, yet few ever realize that value—and the root of this problem lies in organizational culture. They say culture eats strategy for breakfast, and that is particularly true when it comes to innovation. In this practical session, Jamie Notter will give you plain-English definitions of both culture and innovation, and then demonstrate how the patterns inside your culture can derail your innovation efforts, despite having a clear innovation strategy. He will include practical tips for changing your culture patterns to strengthen your capacity for innovation.

Creating a Culture that Works for All Generations

We are now on the cusp of a new generation entering the workforce after the Millennials (spoiler: it’s NOT Gen Z!), which means it’s time to take a fresh look at your workplace culture, because it’s critical to adapt your culture to the emerging landscape. In this session, culture expert Jamie Notter will give you a clear model for understanding your culture, and then dig into how the shifts we’ve been making with the Millennials over the last decade will be both amplified and challenged by the generation that follows, and how all of it reveals a sharp change in our trajectory toward the future of work.

“At Competo we had the honor to host Jamie as a keynote speaker at our 13th HR event. He exceeded all of our expectations. His lecture about Millennials and cross-generational cooperation was fabulous. On one hand he gave us advice, on the other he made us think. He’s not only an expert in his field but also a wonderful person and an absolute joy to work with.”
