This year’s inspirational speaker at the ERA General Assembly will be Matthew Syed; one of the world’s most influential thinkers in the field of high performance and cultural change and author of Black Box Thinking.

Matthew explores a thought provoking approach to high performance in the context of a complex and fast-changing world. He draws on a vast array of case studies and real-world examples across sport, business, education and politics. Matthew looks at the inside story of how success really happens – and how we cannot grow unless we are prepared to learn from our mistakes.
