Do beliefs beat facts or vice versa?















Is being right enough to win? Dan will present a challenging discussion this evening based on a wealth of experience - an evening not to be missed.

Dan Gregory was a comedian performing with Austen Tayshus and otherwise doing standup comedy in the UK and USA.

He is the Co-founder and CEO of the Impossible Institute. In conjunction with his partner Kieran Flanagan, they are the strategic and creative team behind the most successful new product launch in Australian history and have applied their considerable experience to social change programs for the United Nations in Singapore, to category re-inventions and innovation initiatives for the likes of Coca-Cola, Unilever, Bayer and News Corp. and to leadership development programs across Australia, Asia, Europe and the USA for organisations in categories as diverse as Banking & Finance, Education, Technology, Pharmaceuticals, Real Estate & Retail.

Dan and Kieran are the co-authors of three books:
• Forever Skills - The 12 skills to future proof yourself, your team and your kids
• Selfish Scared & Stupid - A treatise on Human Behaviour asserting that Behaviour Change should align with human nature rather than fighting it
• Shift - An analysis of future trends in Business, Society, Communications & Technology

They also write for Success Magazine & CEO Magazine in the USA and are regulars on ABC TV’s Gruen Series, Sunrise on Channel 7 and Sky Business News.

Voted by Meetings & Conventions USA as two of the “Top 25 C-Suite speakers to watch”, both Kieran and Dan wow their audiences with a mixture of commercial acumen, creative insight and the kind of comedic wit you’d expect with backgrounds in on-air media and stand up comedy.

The Impossible Institute delivers Keynote Speeches, Training Workshops in Forever Skills (Change, Creativity, Communication & Control) and Leadership Programs as well as facilitating innovative solutions to a huge range of complicated, and often political, problems.

Dan loves playing the Devil's advocate and is also a debate coach.

It is a stroke of good fortune and an honour to have Dan present this evening.
