Paul Rulkens – the high performance Mastermind

No Comments

How do the best get better? Companies like KPMG, ExxonMobil, McKinsey, Canon, and Novartis work with Paul Rulkens to raise the bar and quickly bring results to the next level.

paul rulkensPaul knows that doing more is no longer the default answer to too much to do. He is an expert in strategic high performance: the art and science of accelerating bold executive outcomes with the least amount of effort. He is an award-winning professional speaker, international author of ‘The Power of Preeminence’ and ‘How successful engineers become great business leaders,’ and a trusted boardroom advisor who has helped thousands of business executives, managers, and professionals get everything they can out of everything they have. His ideas to improve results and accelerate careers are often described as thought-provoking and counterintuitive, yet highly effective.

You do not have to be sick in order to get better. As an international keynote speaker, Paul annually addresses dozens of successful international audiences about essential mindsets and proven strategies to reap exponential business improvements. His most popular topics cover the secrets of consistent execution, easy innovation, powerful leadership, business growth, career acceleration, and seamless teamwork.

The network uses the Mighty Networks platform to create a members only community, where people actively share and engage.


Members introduce their top 5 game changers, people who make a positive impact on the teams they work with. The topics discussed range from innovation, marketing, talent management to personal improvement. Anything goes, as long as everyone grows. We carefully curate the diversity of our network, with; 52% women, members from all continents, graduates and captains of industry we make sure you meet people outside of your regular circle of friends.
