In the wake of the Great Resignation, the allure of entrepreneurship has never been stronger. But what if organisations could inspire their teams to embrace an intrapreneurial spirit within the company?

Creativity. Courage. Connection.

Join Bernadette in this compelling keynote as she unveils the strategies used by top companies to cultivate an 'intrapreneurial' culture. Discover how leading companies help their teams unlock the creative courage and unique talents of their team to help drive collective success, bolster loyalty, retain loyal staff and increase profits.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Unveil the key components of an intrapreneurial culture that inspire teams to reinvent, reimagine, and repurpose their efforts
  • Nurture creativity and courage within teams to confront challenges and tell compelling stories
  • Turn data into engaging narratives that drive action and foster engagement
  • Commodify creativity, encourage experimentation and calculated risk-taking
  • Build collaborative ecosystems that empower employees to share ideas, collaborate across departments, and collectively drive impactful change.

For those seeking to help their teams reinvent, reimagine, and repurpose their existing skills and bring their whole self to their organisation, this session offers teams the opportunity to explore the path to intrapreneurial success.


"The calibre of guest speakers which Toyota Australia provide at their dealer training courses has always been high, but they went to a totally new level by using Bernadette Schwerdt.  I’m not someone who often gives a 10 out of 10 – and I won’t now. I’m giving a 12.”
Tania Hall, Marketing Manager, Toyota, Jarvis Cars
