The Breakfast Talk Series continues with the 7th Edition, this time venturing into the discourses of “Human Capital & Employee Engagement Diversity in the Workplace.” If you’re looking to motivate your employees into being the best they can be, join us as we bring in proven experts in the field of HR and professional development.
Is employee retention an issue in your company?
Are you concerned with attracting, hiring and retaining top talents?
Or does your management team struggle with engaging employees?
Discover the answers to the questions above as this next breakfast talk presents an opportunity for leaders across all industries to examine their personal career and their organisation’s culture.
We will look at the rules of engagement that exist within every organisation, and discuss how to help people integrate into the company by understanding the unwritten rules. Leaders will learn tools for increasing engagement, which is often misunderstood as the sole responsibility of management or the HR department.

In 2012, 2013 and 2014, her US company was recognized as one of America’s Fastest Growing Companies by INC. Magazine. She grew a homebased training practice into a thriving multimillion dollar performance management consulting firm. Dr Indigo is admired for her down-to-earth methods and techniques, but perhaps more known as an authentic leader who tackles organizational development and workforce topics. Stateside to abroad—from Atlanta, Georgia to Shanghai, China—she delivers a message and philosophy that is insightful; thus, resonating with people at every tier of their career or within an organization.
As the author of Playing by the Unwritten Rules I: Moving from the Middle to the Top and Playing by the Unwritten Rules II: From a Job Defense to a Career Offense, she is a leading authority on career management.

Dr Indigo recently launched 4D Performance in Malaysia, which mirrors her US company. Based on her research, she believes that Asia is primed to be the next global economic power. However, she also believes that there must be a shift in how the Asia workforce is prepared for this growth and global competitiveness. She further believes that a foundation built on performance and productivity will create sustainability. This means leveraging diversity, creating inclusion, developing an agile workforce that is empowered, creative and life-long learners are essential. It is not what a person knows but what s/he is willing to learn that will move an organization forward. She received her Ph.D. in Values-Driven Leadership from Benedictine University and holds a MA in Organizational Development from Webster University.
