The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect. For an audible cue, tapping a pencil or a knife against a glass produces a chime that is not too distracting.

"A Very Different Leadership Style" Visionary Communication Level 2 Learning Your Style: Understanding Your Leadership Style
 Green: 5  Yellow: 6  Red: 7

Introduction: Nik Lakhani looks at a different aspect of understanding Leadership Styles today.

He intends to begin with the Toastmaster version and then introduce a style and a policy adopted by the New Zealand All Blacks which is an international Rugby Team. They are undoubtedly the best in the world in their sport – bigger than The New York Yankees, Chicago Bulls or the Montreal Canadiens.

What drives them, how do they continue their success year on year?

Some aspects of this style were evident in Nik’s previous role as a Technical Director of a software company and he will explain with examples.

With a speech titled “A Very Different Leadership Style”, please give a warm welcome to Nik Lakhani
