Specializing in working with high-net worth and C-Suite clientele, Cherry Rose Tan grew the movement to 40,000 leaders and 70 national champions in four years, with a synonymous Top 14 Business podcast on iTunes as well.

Early in her career, Cherry Rose Tan has been an award-winning K-12 educator, teaching in Canada’s most exclusive schools. With a M.A. in Education from the University of Toronto, she specialized in gamification as a teacher-researcher and holds a 25-year history as a gamer, where she ranked #17 (out of 25 million users) on Neopets, a virtual pets website that served as a precursor to the metaverse.

As an Innovation Keynote Speaker, Cherry Rose Tan is represented by the Speakers Bureau of Canada, with her first book being released in late 2022.

The Glimpse - Predicting the Future of an Industry

  • How do you see disruption before it comes? Cherry Rose Tan is a serial entrepreneur and tech founder, who has been the “First Mover” in several industries: crypto, eSports, and mental health. As a Venture Partner for GoingVC Partners, one of the largest angel networks in San Francisco, Tan has been able to see emergent companies that will change the world before the mainstream sees it coming.

    In this keynote, Tan shares how leaders and organizations can see the glimpse: the signs that an industry is changing and on the cusp of disruption. Understanding the glimpse and taking advantage of this opportunity is absolutely vital for business survival. By building an innovative mindset, leaders and organizations can seize these opportunities in the right place at the right time.

Future Proof - Managing Disruption as an Organization

  • How do we innovate once we know the glimpse is here? The glimpse happens when we see the future and sense that our industry, its assumptions, and the ways it operates will change for better or for worse. Organizations, especially those that are incumbents in their respective industries, are always challenged by new and ambitious players that wish to overtake their market share.

    In this keynote, futurist Cherry Rose Tan talks about what it takes to be the leader that can introduce, manage, and sustain innovation and disruption. Evolving as a company is not a solo activity, but one that requires buy-in from multiple stakeholders. What does it mean to scale innovation from leader to organization to industry? Learn how you can evaluate and create your organization’s culture to sustain this innovation.

From Mission to Movement - Creating Stickiness in Sales

  • Are mission statements just a fad or can they be something more? Cherry Rose Tan is a fifth-generation entrepreneur who has built the stickiest way to compete as a company: building national movements backed by thousands of people. Her last company #REALTALK, the mental health movement for the tech industry, worked with 40,000 leaders while building a B2B clientele that included governments and universities.

    In this keynote, Tan teaches how leaders and organizations can transform their mission statement into a movement. Through systems-based thinking, organizations can re-engage with internal and external stakeholders, so that what they sell and how they sell resonates with their people. In a world where consumers have limitless choice, creating a movement that people care about is essential to your bottom line.

Real Talk as a Strategy - Building Resilient Organizations

  • How do we have tough yet necessary conversations in a polarized world? Cherry Rose Tan has spent a decade answering this question, culminating into her tech company #REALTALK, a national movement that has helped 40,000 leaders address Mental Health and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. COVID-19 has amplified the discomfort and tension in many spaces, where organizations experience division on many topics.

    In this keynote, Tan shows how leaders can use “real talk” to mobilize employees and to create solutions that operate from integrity. In an era of social media, where what organizations say and do are being dissected by the public, the stakes are higher than ever. By moving “real talk” from Me to You to Us, we can create resilient and transparent organizations that can thrive in the harshest of circumstances.

One Percent-Her - The Age of Inclusive Leadership

  • Do bias and stereotypes overlook skills? Cherry Rose Tan comes from five generations of entrepreneurs, where her success as a Woman of Colour represents less than 1% of all tech founders. As a Filipino-Chinese Canadian woman who has carved her own path as a C-Suite executive, she shares her first-hand experience of entering, surviving, and flourishing in male-dominated industries like tech and academia.

    In this keynote, Tan speaks about the advantages of diversifying your leadership and your workforce to open the doors for the next generation of leaders. By challenging organizations to confront the norms, behaviours, and language that can lead to discrimination or exclusion within the workplace, tangible action can be taken on inclusive strategies and diverse teams.

The Future of Work - Retaining Millennial and Gen Z Talent

  • With the “Great Resignation”, how do we engage and retain our best talent? Cherry Rose Tan is an expert on the Future of Work, advising and investing in startups who are solving this problem. With organizations balancing in-person, work-from-home, and hybrid work, they must learn to become 21st century organizations: able to recruit, retain, and grow a workforce that wants hybrid and/or remote work to stay.

    In this keynote, Tan demonstrates research, strategies, and frameworks for being the employer of choice. As the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Schulich School of Business, she has a unique and intimate view into Millennial and Gen Z talent, where she prepares BBA and MBA alumni to enter the workforce. Organizations must be responsive to the trends of work, in order to stay competitive in their industries.

The Future of Education - Moving into 21st Century Learning

  • In a world of disengagement, how do we incentivize students to stay? Cherry Rose Tan is the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Schulich School of Business, where she teaches at the BBA and MBA levels. During COVID-19, many educational institutions (K-12 and Higher Education) were disrupted when learning went online. Global cynicism has spread, where students and their families are questioning the value of schools.

    In this keynote, Tan shares first-hand experiences, frameworks, and results on re-engaging all stakeholders: from students to parents to teachers. It means understanding the trends that are challenging the status quo, such as virtual learning and microlearning. As an award-winning educator with a M.A. in Education, this keynote will be relatable and actionable for faculty and staff looking to make a difference.

  • What is the metaverse and why should we care as a company?

  • What is possible with blockchain and how will this affect my organization? Cherry Rose Tan has been a crypto Investor since 2015, partnering with her brother and resulting in the creation of Paycase Financial, a Canadian blockchain pioneer that provides infrastructure and liquidity to global financial markets. Blockchain has taken over industries and headlines, challenging the way we conceptualize value and money.
