  • To Bin Or Not To Bin

    28 Jan 2014

    What a waste. Most New Year resolutions are set up to fail.

    The crackle and pop of the New Year have come and gone. The fireworks are over and the empty bottles of bubbly have been consigned to the recycling bin.

    But have the accompanying New Year resolutions already ended up in the bin too, probably to be recycled some other year?

  • A Broader Purpose

    13 Jun 2013

    At Keogh Consulting, we continue to find ourselves in a growing number of conversations with our clients about their legacy and how they can make an even greater impact in the world - in other words what is their organisation's broader purpose.

    Therefore it was timely to hear President Obama talk into this topic a few weeks back, when he gave the commencement address at Morehouse College, a prestigious all male liberal arts college in Atlanta, traditionally for African Americans.

  • The Croods-A Transformational Movie Review

    24 May 2013

    Have you ever experienced the animated/children’s movie epiphany? You know, where you are expecting a laugh or two, something cute, and perhaps a little guilt from eating too much popcorn? Instead, tucked into the very heartbeat of the movie, in a simple but sophisticated script, you are confronted with a deep and powerful message.

    Last week I was having a conversation with a colleague of mine, Engine PR Director - Beth Burgess. She had just returned from seeing the DreamWorks animated movie The Croods, and she’d had an epiphany of her own.

    About dealing with change and accepting innovation.

    While in the cinema, right there in front of her, was a beautifully animated children’s movie about Transformation, The Croods.

  • Team ’Mates’ and the Best of Enemies…

    28 Mar 2013

    With controversy raging over the result of the Malaysian Formula1 Grand Prix on the 23rd -24th of March, I found myself asking, 'Is it fair to risk it all for personal gain at the expense of your teammate and team?'
    Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber may well be asking this same question - and coming up with different answers.
    Vettel overtook his teammate with 13 laps to go, despite being told by the Team Principal to hold position.

    Before we 'win', is it worth considering: What is the price of my victory? What will the impact be on my team and my reputation?

  • If My Life Was a Book

    26 Feb 2013

    They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. That may apply to some people, but I’m not sure about it’s veracity when taken literally.  The cover illustration, the fonts, the name of the publisher, the blurbs on the back, all tell you something. What would my cover look like? What would my back cover reviewers say?

    Then there’s the title itself.  A chance to neatly encapsulate your life story with a pithy phrase. What would your book be titled?

  • Keogh paints the town red…literally!

    30 Jan 2013

    Those passing by Keogh Offices on Melbourne Street in Adelaide and James Street in Brisbane will notice a distinctive change.  Both corporate offices now showcase a bright crimson door and gate emblazoned with Keogh Consulting. It’s all part of the Keogh brand transformation which was successfully rolled-out last week in an internal launch for the Keogh team...

  • The Keogh Way.

    21 Jan 2013

    Welcome to the very first post for our new blog, titled ‘The Keogh Way’. Just writing that first sentence made these typing fingers (both of them) go all clammy. Because initiating something like a new blog is a nerve-racking experience. What if people don’t like it? What if they respond negatively?

    There are so many what ifs. But there is also a different set of what ifs. Like what if something said here sparks an idea for someone?
